In 2001, his memoir, Seldom Disappointed, won both the Anthony and Agatha Awards for best nonfiction.Présentation de l'éditeur :
Master storyteller Tony Hillerman reunited Lt. Joe Leaphorn and Officer Jim Chee in an intricately woven mystery involving two seemingly unrelated cases--one about grave robbing to protest a museum's policy of not returning ancestral remains to Native Americans . . . the other concerning a murder victim whose body has been carefully stripped of identification. . .
Evoking in a way only he can the striking beauty of the Southwest and the Navajo people, Hillerman is at the top of his form in thie stunning new mystery that proves anew why his work is--as the Los Angeles Times has state--"unique in American crime fiction."
