About this title

Synopsis:

Hundreds of thousands of devoteeswill cheer the return of Joe Leaphorn and Jim Chee in Tony Hillerman's mostintricate and atmospheric novel yet. The Navajo policemen, whose exploitsare now published in sixteen languages, are brought together by the deathof a man on Ship Rock, almost 1700 feet above the desert floor.

The fallen man had sprawled on the ledge under the peak of Ship Rock mountainfor eleven years-visited only by the ravens who had picked his bones bareand scattered his rock-climbing gear.

Through the memory of those who had known him, emerges an understandingof the fallen man, who had been given everything and found it was notenough.

The Fallen Man is replete with Hillerman trademarks-ingeniously intricateplotting, splendid evocations of the Southwest's harsh beauty, insightsinto a venerable culture, and subtly poignant characterizations.

Tony Hillerman's many bestselling novels include Finding Moon, Sacred Clowns,and Coyote Waits. He lives with his wife, Marie, in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

Gil Silverbird is an American Navajo Indian who sings in several languagesand performs extensively in the theatre and on television. He can be heardon Tony Hillerman's The Ghostway and Sacred Clowns.

Review:

"They sat for a while, engulfed by sunlight, cool air and silence. A raven planed down from the rim, circled around a cottonwood, landed on a Russian olive across the canyon floor and perched, waiting for them to die."

Nobody in the world could have written that paragraph but Tony Hillerman. Two old men sit, surrounded by the natural beauty of Canyon de Chelly, talking about death. The fact that one of the men is Joe Leaphorn, (the Legendary Lieutenant, as his younger colleague Jim Chee irreverently but accurately calls him behind his back) means that something serious has happened--a crime in some way connected to the Navajo people. But Leaphorn has retired from the Navajo Tribal Police, and the only person dead so far is a rich Anglo named Hal Breedlove, who fell while trying to climb Ship Rock 11 years before. Chee is busy on another, more prosaic matter, but he can't resist helping his thorny mentor on Leaphorn's first case as a private detective. The Fallen Man is brisk, beautiful, funny, and poignant--as good a place as any for first-timers to plunge into Hillerman Country. Then they can catch up on past triumphs with Three Joe Leaphorn Mysteries (The Blessing Way/Dance Hall of the Dead/Listening Woman) and Three Jim Chee Mysteries (People of Darkness/The Dark Wind/The Ghostway).
