Hillerman fans should find this comprehensive, well-researched guide interesting and informative, and scholars will appreciate the helpful background it provides on one of today's most popular mystery authors. Greenberg, who has compiled similar volumes on Tom Clancy and Robert Ludlum, uses his previous experience to advantage. In addition to a Hillerman chronology listing highlights of the writer's life, the guide includes an interview with the author and a lengthy critical essay on his works by Jon Breen, noted mystery critic and longtime Hillerman fan. The volume also contains a short, informative essay on Navajo culture, detailed listings and explanations of the Native American clans and characters featured in Hillerman's fiction, and excerpts from some of Hillerman's most popular works, both fiction and nonfiction. Neither dry nor scholarly, this valuable sourcebook provides a readable overview of Hillerman's life and art. Emily Melton
