Legendary Navajo policeman Lieutenant Joe Leaphorn takes center stage in this riveting atmospheric mystery from New York Times bestselling author Anne Hillerman that combines crime, superstition, and tradition and brings the desert Southwest vividly alive. Joe Leaphorn may have retired from the Tribal Police, but he finds himself knee-deep in a perplexing case involving a priceless artifacta reminder of a dark time in Navajo history. Joes been hired to find a missing biil, a traditional dress that had been donated to the Navajo Nation. His investigation takes a sinister turn when the leading suspect dies under mysterious circumstances and Leaphorn himself receives anonymous warnings to bewarewitchcraft is afoot. While the veteran detective is busy working to untangle his strange case, his former colleague Jim Chee and Officer Bernie Manuelito are collecting evidence they hope will lead to a cunning criminal behind a rash of burglaries. Their case takes a complicated turn when Bernie finds a body near a popular running trail. The situation grows more complicated when the death is ruled a homicide, and the Tribal cops are thrust into a turf battle because the murder involves the FBI. As Leaphorn, Chee, and Bernie draw closer to solving these crimes, their parallel investigations begin to merge . . . and offer an unexpected opportunity that opens a new chapter in Bernies life.

This audiobook was between a so-so and a pick. It was okay. The woman reader was fairly good. This is one of a series and is the first book I've read by Anne Hillerman. I wonder if I would've liked this one better if I had begun at the beginning of the series. Although there were some things that carried over from previous books, there were enough hints that you could pick up what had happened previously. Overall, an okay pick.

I love Anne Hillerman‘s mysteries. Selfishly, I love the comfort of continuing to experience the lives of her Dad‘s characters and, the characters that she has introduced are rich and interesting. That said, I found the plot of the TALE TELLER a bit weak. I hate to say it, but I think she “phoned it up n” on this one.

Looking forward to the next one.

4 star. Anne Hillerman does a great job with the characters; considering she is continuing her father's series, the characters feel very authentic. My continuing criticism with her books however is that there are too many cases happening at once. Also married Chee and Bernie NEVER get to spend any time together.

Hillerman writes consistently good mysteries, with strong character and plot development. I'm glad she so capably picked up and continued the series after her dad's death.

I stayed up way too late last night finishing this. Anne Hillerman is one of my favorite authors. While the mystery part of her stories is always interesting and well-written, I am fascinated by the Navajo history and culture she includes in each book. I learn something every time.
