The Jim Chee Mysteries: Three Classic Hillerman Mysteries Featuring Officer Jim Chee: The Darkby Tony Hillerman
Synopses & Reviews
In People of Darkness, Hillerman's first novel to introduce Officer Jim Chee of the Navajo Tribal Police, Chee is forced to use all of his powers of deduction and insight to extricated himself from a deadly series of incidences involving a mysterious millionaire, a sinister, peyote-eating Indian cult, and what the New York Times called "an ingenious long-acting way of murder." In The Dark Wind, a seemingly routine stakeout at a vandalized windmill thrusts Chee into the center of a dangerous web of drugs, witchcraft, and betrayal. And in The Ghostways, a felon relocated under the Federal Witness Relocation Program sets off a chain of treachery and killings, and only Chee has the knowledge of the people and the landscape to understand the clues.
Three classic Hillerman mysteries featuring Officer Jim Chee: The Dark Wind, People of Darkness and The Ghostway, offered in the wake of Hillerman's success with The Joe Leaphorn Mysteries.
