Mystery & Suspense • 6 hrs. • Abridged • © 1996

This well-done abridgment, approved by Hillerman, is authentically narrated by Gil Silverbird, a Navajo. While some of the Southwestern flavor seems to have been cut, enough descriptive phrases are included that anyone who has read Hillerman will be able to fill in the setting. In this mystery the body of a climber is found many years after his disappearance. Two minor detractions include Silverbird's unusual pronunciation of "piton" and "basalt," common words in the climbing field. In addition, his depiction of female characters sounds a discordant note in this overall fine audio production. D.T.H. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPT 97]
