New York Times best-selling author Tony Hillerman packs his flawless mysteries with evocative southwestern scenery, Native American lore, and finely-crafted characters. In The First Eagle, fear has been sweeping the Navajo reservation ever since a vicious killer and an unusually virulent strain of bubonic plague started claiming victims. When Tribal policeman Jim Chee discovers a blood-stained Hopi man hovering over a young officer's body, it looks like an open-and-shut case. The Hopi will be heading for the gas chamber soon. But retired Lieutenant Joe Leaphorn isn't so sure-his current missing person investigation is about to blow Chee's perfect case wide open. Today's fast-moving world and the rich traditions of the past meet head on in Edgar and Grand Master Award-winner Tony Hillerman's absorbing tale. Veteran narrator George Guidall's dramatic performance will whisk you to the high desert and enable you to follow in the footsteps of Leaphorn and Chee through the windswept plains and craggy boulders.
