    Reader Reviews
    Mr. Leaphorn and Mr. Chee go to Washington, January 20, 2003 Reviewer: Smallchief from Greensboro, NC USA This is the ninth -- and one of the best -- of the outstanding Navajo Detective series. Hillerman first wrote three books with detective Joe Leaphorn as the hero, then three more featuring Jim Chee, and now he has written three more with both Joe Leaphorn and Jim Chee as characters. The first chapter of "Talking God" will hook you immediately. Unlike most Hillerman books, which take place in the broad horizons of the Navajo Reservation, "Talking God" has the slightly amusing spectacle of the two Navajo policeman wandering around Washington D.C. One of them (Leaphorn) is uncomfortably attired in a three piece suit and the other (Chee) wears cowboy boots, blue jeans, bolo tie, and leather jacket -- a bizarre apparition indeed among the paper warriors of the governing tribe. The novel features a look at Navajo ceremonials, a behind-the-scenes glimpse of the Smithsonian, some insights into the bones-and-stones argument between anthropologists and Indians, a villainous villain, lots of good old fashioned murder and mayhem, a bit of international intrigue, and a riproaring climax as the two Navajos solve the mystery while the FBI, as usual, stands around in a fog.
