Tony Hillerman delights his readers with another Joe Leaphorn and Jim Chee tale in which they investigate separate but convergent crimes. George Guidall lends his considerable talents to convey Hillerman’s mysticism and the complexity of his characters. Hillerman’s admiration for the St. Bonaventure School is brought out in the text, then reinforced in an appealing interview with the author at the end of the program. Much as Leaphorn encourages Chee to be observant of every detail, Guidall takes the same advice. He captures every nuance of the story with pace, tone and subtle inflection. His narration matches Hillerman’s spare writing style while his careful characterizations build a dynamic whole. This masterful interpretation by Guidall should send all listeners in search of his other Hillerman titles. R.F.W. Winner of AUDIOFILE Earphones Award ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 93]
