Sarah Broadhurst's view...

Simply written, an easy, comfortable read, gentle yet utterly absorbing and gripping in an unusual way. It is the latest in a series featuring Lieutenant Joe Leaphorn, here very recently retired from the Navajo Tribal Police and it is steeped in Native American lore, myth and superstitions. As Harlan Coben says “If you’ve already read Tony Hillerman … you know how great this experience is going to be. If you’re new to his work, well, I envy you.” I echo Coben’s words. Here is a series well worth becoming addicted to.

Comparison: Alexander McCall Smith, R J Ellory, José Latour.

If you like Tony Hillerman you might also like to read books by Jose Latour, R J Ellory and Ed Mcbain.

Synopsis

The Shape Shifter by Tony Hillerman

Since his retirement from the Navajo Tribal Police, Joe Leaphorn has occasionally been enticed to return to work. After all, Leaphorn, aided by Jim Chee and Bernie Manuelito, always delivers.

Joe has even more reason to get involved this time. An old case of his, his last unsolved case, one that has continues to haunt him years later, has resurfaced. A priceless Navajo rug which was, allegedly, lost in a fire, is back on the scene and Joe finds himself once again caught up in the strands of a mystery that may be impossible to unravel.

Reviews

‘Fascinating… The interplay between the characters is also finely sketched and offers rare insights into American attitudes to race and heritage. Well worth investigating.’ The Guardian

‘If you’ve already read Tony Hillerman… You know how great this experience is going to be. If you’re new to his work, well, I envy you.’ Harlan Coben
