Publisher's Summary

Homicide is always an abomination, but there is something exceptionally disturbing about the victim discovered in a high, lonely place: a corpse with a mouth full of sand, abandoned at a crime scene seemingly devoid of tracks or useful clues. Though it goes against his better judgment, Navajo tribal police lieutenant Joe Leaphorn cannot help but suspect the hand of a supernatural killer. There is palpable evil in the air, and Leaphorn's pursuit of a wolf-witch is leading him where even the bravest men fear - on a chilling trail that winds perilously between mysticism and murder.

A 'Blessing' Indeed!

I've admired the books of Tony Hillerman for years. Many newer Southwest-based mystery series owe him a debt - and few equal his ability to make the reader (or, in this case, listener) feel in his/her bones what it must be like to live in Navaho country.

So, wow, was I happy to see that some of these classics have recently been released by Audible, read by the great and wonderful George Guidall! Talk about a perfect pairing - Guidall is one of those narrators who could bring feeling and gravitas to a reading of the telephone book, as the saying goes.

"The Blessing Way" is definitely not the telephone book, and it's a total joy to be re-introduced to this early Tony Hillerman featuring Joe Leaphorn. I look forward to experiencing more of the early series as well as some of Hillerman's later books.

Thank you, Audible!
