Description:

First printing of First Edition. Near Fine in a Fine dust jacket. A touch of fuzzing at top corner tips. There is a small faint rust-colored mark on spine near burgundy title--believe this may be a result of blurring or bleeding during production. Gorgeous jacket is absolutely flawless but for a couple of very tiny wrinkles at head of spine. Bookseller Inventory # 36133

Tony Hillerman (1925–2008), an Albuquerque, New Mexico, resident since 1963, was the author of 29 books, including the popular 18-book mystery series featuring Navajo police officers Jim Chee and Joe Leaphorn, two non-series novels, two children’s books, and nonfiction works. He had received every major honor for mystery fiction; awards ranging from the Navajo Tribal Council's commendation to France 's esteemed Grand prix de litterature policiere. Western Writers of America honored him with the Wister Award for Lifetime achievement in 2008. He served as president of the prestigious Mystery Writers of America, and was honored with that group’s Edgar Award and as one of mystery fiction’s Grand Masters.

Book Description Harper & Row, New York, 1988. Hardcover. Condition: Near Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Near Fine. 1st Edition. 209 pages. Royal octavo (9 1/2" x 6 1/4") bound in original publisher's beige cloth with red lettering to spine in original pictorial jacket. First edition. A Thief of Time is the eighth crime fiction novel Joe Leaphorn / Jim Chee Navajo Tribal Police series by Tony Hillerman, first published in 1988. It was adapted for television as part of the PBS Mystery! series in 2004. The story involves the lure of the thousand-year-old Anasazi ruins, a missing anthropologist, a stolen backhoe, people who steal ancient pots on reservation land and human ambition. Chee is pulled into the case by the stolen backhoe, while Leaphorn, now a widower, follows the trail of ancient pots bought and sold. This novel won the Macavity Award for Best Novel in 1989[1] and was nominated for two others: The Edgar Award and the Anthony Award. Hillerman has set expectations high, as this novel is an award-winner, yet "Slightly less absorbing than the best Hillermans, but darkly atmospheric and ultimately powerful--with (as usual) effective contrasts among the theological beliefs of rationalist Leaphorn, mystical Chee, and other Navajos." is the comment of one reviewer.[2] Another notes that this "novel of mystery rises above its mere classification-``mystery``- and becomes a fine literary work".[3] In this novel, "it is the sense the author imparts of the sparseness, the spaciousness, the silence, the poverty and the ancient sullen Indian presence in this haunted wild country where the action occurs.
