    Book Description
    This is Tony Hillerman's latest novel -- and hisbest audio by far. He departs from his trademark terrain of Navajo mysteriesto a story he has wanted to tell for decades.

    Ricky Mathias, an American pilot, dies in the last days of the Vietnam War,his infant daughter orphaned somewhere in southeast Asia. Her uncle Malcolm'Moon' Mathias must set aside his job as a newspaper editor and his naggingself doubt to find the little girl. From the streets of Manila, to a ruralcockfight, into a Filipino prison on Palawan Island, and, finally acrossthe South China Sea to where Pol Pot's Khmer Rouge is turning Cambodia intokilling fields and Communist rockets are beginning to fall on the outskirtsof Saigon.

    Finding Moon is many things: a latter-day adventure epic, a deftlyorchestrated romance, an arrested portrait of an exotic realm engulfed inturmoil, and a neatly turned tale of suspense. Most of all its a singularstory of how a plain, uncertain man can achieve genuine heroism by battlinghis fears to find his best self.

I loved "Finding Moon". This book is a journey away from Mr. Hillerman's Navajo southwest. The book, along with being a great story to read is also a book about growth of a character who intertesting even form the beginning. I'm not much at writing reviews, but let me just say that I really enjoyed this book. Thanks.
