    I was a big fan of Tony Hillerman?s books. When his daughter Anne, started writing, I began following her. She has big shoes to fill as Tony was a master storyteller. Anne has improved with each book which makes it fun to watch a writer grow. In this book Jim Chee is in Santa Fe at a...

    Part of the attraction of a series is getting to know the writer?s personality as well as his characters. When that author dies and someone else steps in, at best you get a quality imitation, at worst an unwitting parody. I picked up CAVE OF BONES on a whim, having enjoyed the origin...

    I read this while I was at the beach last week and I really enjoyed it. I have been a fan of the Hillerman universe for over twenty years. The characters are so well-developed and familiar that I feel that I know them. I was very happy when I learned that Anne Hillerman had taken up he...

    My thanks to the Meridian Library for my copy. This is The latest book in the long-term series of the Navajo tribe. Tribal Police Officer Bernadette Manuelito arrives at an outpost to speak to a group of teenagers on a outbounds journey to help them find themselves. One of the girls di...

    Anne Hillerman continues to provide Bernie and Jim with opportunities to use their special gifts to solve interesting and baffling crimes. Their particular approach to these situations keeps Leaphorn?s legacy going strong. ...

    I love that the author is carrying on her father's legacy and keeping these characters alive. I really enjoyed Rock with Wings and Spider Woman's Daughter - - so I was super excited and pre-ordered this book. I am sad because Cave of Bones was a let down for me. The beginning was good ...

    This is the first I have read by Anne Hillerman, having enjoyed many of her father's books. I like that the focus here is on Officer Bernie Manuelito, married now to Jim Chee. Jim is off getting updated courses - and still encountering trouble - but Bernie takes the full brunt of a mis...

    I really like her books but she seems to focus more on Bernie than Jim Chee. I would like to see a better mixture of the two. With that said, I received this as a give-away and am grateful to the publisher for this advance copy. This takes place mostly in the rugged lava wilderness whe...

    I enjoyed this latest tale in the Leaphorn and Chee series. Ms. Hillerman does a wonderful and authentic telling of the Navajo nation via this series. The mystery unfolds in much the same way as though being told by Navajo... slowly, with deliberation and not with the hurried, often ab...

    This is probably the best of all the series I?ve read continued after the death of their original author. Anne Hillerman has a deep understanding and appreciation of the landscape and settings that made her father?s Books unforgettable, and she brings the characters to life with sk...

    Anne Hillerman does a great job in her 4th novel following in her father's footsteps. Another Great Leaphorn, Chee, and Manuelito adventure. Though not as much Leaphorn in this one. A very good read. ...

    Cave of Bones by Anne Hillerman is a perplexing mystery with several cases to solve. This 22nd installment in the Leaphorn, Chee & Manuelito series can easily be read as a standalone. Tribal police officer Bernadette "Bernie" Manuelito is only supposed to be giving a talk to the...

    This is my favorite of Anne Hillerman thus far. She is maturing in her ability to entertain and intertwine a plot with multiple characters. There are a couple of primary characters and a cast of minor and peripheral characters that make the story realistic. I like that the author i...

    Loved all Tony Hillerman's books and his daughter Anne was quite good in the first three progressively melding the recognizable "voices" of Chee, Bernie, and Leaphorn into her ownership while still maintaining the linkage with her father's work. The first three books were fine...this o...

    When Officer Bernie Manuelito is helping search for a missing Navaho guide in the lava badlands of El Malpais in North Western New Mexico, she overcomes her discomfort about the presence of the dead to investigate a shallow cave containing a burial. It's been opened and looted, and isn...

    Tony Hillerman?s mysteries set on the Navajo reservation have always been favorites of mine. I was delighted when his daughter Anne brought his beloved characters Chee and Leaphorn back in her series. Her main character is Navajo police officer Bernadette Manuelito, who is married to...

    The best Anne Hillerman book yet. Bernadette must solve or help solve several mysteries, beginning by finding out what happened to a man who failed to return to base camp in the Malpais region. Anne has, unfortunately turned the series into a Bernadette Manueltio series, seemingly almo...

    Another lovely, twisty mystery from this author. I will admit up front that I wanted someone to be one of the bad guys from the first time Bernie Manuelito encountered him. He was just so smug! However, as the story unfolded, I wasn't sure I would get my wish. What starts out as a si...

    Cave of Bones is the 22nd book in the Leaphorn and Chee (and Manuelito) series by Anne Hillerman. The first 20 books were written by her father, Tony Hillerman. Anne has done a brilliant job in continuing this fabulous and beloved series. I really appreciate it. Thanks Anne. Cave of...

    No estaba muy segura con esta novela, pero considerando que es la 22 de una serie que empezó hace muchos años, tenía que se buena para seguir con "vida". El estilo narrativo de la autora es muy bueno, va paso a paso, desarrollando los personajes y la trama, y eso me ha gustado, porq...

    While Jim Chee is at a training session in Sante Fe (and checking on his difficult sister-in-law Darlene), his wife Bernie is trying to find a missing man in a deserted part of their territory. Not only is the man, who knows the territory well, missing, but a girl in the group he was l...

    I think I've enjoyed this book the best of Anne Hillerman's work in taking up her father's legacy. This was a complex mystery that showed the real frustrations of police work and how not everything is as neatly connected as a one-hour TV show would suggest. Still, Bernie and Chee and L...

    An engrossing multi-faceted mystery novel set in the beautiful Navaho reservation /New Mexico area. This a continuation of the Tony Hillerman ?Joe Leaphorn and Jim Chee novels now being authored by Anne Hillerman. To read these books is reminiscent of checking in with old friends and...

    Anne Hillerman is doing a good job of continuing her father?s legacy of Leaphorn and Chee mysteries. Her books are much more character-oriented than Tony?s?we know the inner workings of Bernie Manuelito?s family, which the older writer would not have bothered with. Anne?s fir...

    The legacy continues. These are enjoyable stories. Anne has done a nice job of keeping the characters together. This one was not as deadly as some. I think there was a blizzard and a rescue in the snow that was not essential, but the two threads came together and there was a redemption...

    The saga of the Navajo polices continues with the story of a camping trip for troubled teenage girls where one girl becomes lost and then a counselor is lost also.Tribal Officer Manuelito becomes involved and discovers where ancient burial sites are being looted. Several current murder...

    Having been to Navajo country several times, this novel caught my interest. Is a modern day mystery with murder and disappearance. Bernie Manuelito is a cop married to Chee also a cop. Is about family, respect, and loss. Found this an interesting read due to characters that are tenaci...

    Hillerman presents another terrific mystery featuring Bernadette Manuelito. In the course of the story, Hillerman tackles issues such as the theft of important cultural artifacts, drug and alcohol abuse, and the easy distrustful treatment of troubled teens by supposedly caring adults. ...

    I always enjoy this series set in Navajo country. Plot occasionally stumbles a bit but characters and setting more than make up for that. I'm already looking forward to the next one. ...

    I enjoyed this latest tale in the Leaphorn and Chee series. Ms. Hillerman does a wonderful and authentic telling of the Navajo nation via this series. The mystery unfolds in much the same way as though being told by Navajo... slowly, with deliberation and not with the hurried, often ab...

    This is probably the best of all the series I?ve read continued after the death of their original author. Anne Hillerman has a deep understanding and appreciation of the landscape and settings that made her father?s Books unforgettable, and she brings the characters to life with sk...

    Anne Hillerman does a great job in her 4th novel following in her father's footsteps. Another Great Leaphorn, Chee, and Manuelito adventure. Though not as much Leaphorn in this one. A very good read. ...

    Cave of Bones by Anne Hillerman is a perplexing mystery with several cases to solve. This 22nd installment in the Leaphorn, Chee & Manuelito series can easily be read as a standalone. Tribal police officer Bernadette "Bernie" Manuelito is only supposed to be giving a talk to the...

    This is my favorite of Anne Hillerman thus far. She is maturing in her ability to entertain and intertwine a plot with multiple characters. There are a couple of primary characters and a cast of minor and peripheral characters that make the story realistic. I like that the author i...

    Loved all Tony Hillerman's books and his daughter Anne was quite good in the first three progressively melding the recognizable "voices" of Chee, Bernie, and Leaphorn into her ownership while still maintaining the linkage with her father's work. The first three books were fine...this o...

    When Officer Bernie Manuelito is helping search for a missing Navaho guide in the lava badlands of El Malpais in North Western New Mexico, she overcomes her discomfort about the presence of the dead to investigate a shallow cave containing a burial. It's been opened and looted, and isn...

    Tony Hillerman?s mysteries set on the Navajo reservation have always been favorites of mine. I was delighted when his daughter Anne brought his beloved characters Chee and Leaphorn back in her series. Her main character is Navajo police officer Bernadette Manuelito, who is married to...

    The best Anne Hillerman book yet. Bernadette must solve or help solve several mysteries, beginning by finding out what happened to a man who failed to return to base camp in the Malpais region. Anne has, unfortunately turned the series into a Bernadette Manueltio series, seemingly almo...

    Another lovely, twisty mystery from this author. I will admit up front that I wanted someone to be one of the bad guys from the first time Bernie Manuelito encountered him. He was just so smug! However, as the story unfolded, I wasn't sure I would get my wish. What starts out as a si...

    While Jim Chee is at a training session in Sante Fe (and checking on his difficult sister-in-law Darlene), his wife Bernie is trying to find a missing man in a deserted part of their territory. Not only is the man, who knows the territory well, missing, but a girl in the group he was l...

    I think I've enjoyed this book the best of Anne Hillerman's work in taking up her father's legacy. This was a complex mystery that showed the real frustrations of police work and how not everything is as neatly connected as a one-hour TV show would suggest. Still, Bernie and Chee and L...

    An engrossing multi-faceted mystery novel set in the beautiful Navaho reservation /New Mexico area. This a continuation of the Tony Hillerman ?Joe Leaphorn and Jim Chee novels now being authored by Anne Hillerman. To read these books is reminiscent of checking in with old friends and...

    Anne Hillerman is doing a good job of continuing her father?s legacy of Leaphorn and Chee mysteries. Her books are much more character-oriented than Tony?s?we know the inner workings of Bernie Manuelito?s family, which the older writer would not have bothered with. Anne?s fir...

    The best Anne Hillerman book yet. Bernadette must solve or help solve several mysteries, beginning by finding out what happened to a man who failed to return to base camp in the Malpais region. Anne has, unfortunately turned the series into a Bernadette Manueltio series, seemingly almo...

    Another lovely, twisty mystery from this author. I will admit up front that I wanted someone to be one of the bad guys from the first time Bernie Manuelito encountered him. He was just so smug! However, as the story unfolded, I wasn't sure I would get my wish. What starts out as a si...

    Cave of Bones is the 22nd book in the Leaphorn and Chee (and Manuelito) series by Anne Hillerman. The first 20 books were written by her father, Tony Hillerman. Anne has done a brilliant job in continuing this fabulous and beloved series. I really appreciate it. Thanks Anne. Cave of...

    No estaba muy segura con esta novela, pero considerando que es la 22 de una serie que empezó hace muchos años, tenía que se buena para seguir con "vida". El estilo narrativo de la autora es muy bueno, va paso a paso, desarrollando los personajes y la trama, y eso me ha gustado, porq...

    While Jim Chee is at a training session in Sante Fe (and checking on his difficult sister-in-law Darlene), his wife Bernie is trying to find a missing man in a deserted part of their territory. Not only is the man, who knows the territory well, missing, but a girl in the group he was l...

    I think I've enjoyed this book the best of Anne Hillerman's work in taking up her father's legacy. This was a complex mystery that showed the real frustrations of police work and how not everything is as neatly connected as a one-hour TV show would suggest. Still, Bernie and Chee and L...

    An engrossing multi-faceted mystery novel set in the beautiful Navaho reservation /New Mexico area. This a continuation of the Tony Hillerman ?Joe Leaphorn and Jim Chee novels now being authored by Anne Hillerman. To read these books is reminiscent of checking in with old friends and...

    Anne Hillerman is doing a good job of continuing her father?s legacy of Leaphorn and Chee mysteries. Her books are much more character-oriented than Tony?s?we know the inner workings of Bernie Manuelito?s family, which the older writer would not have bothered with. Anne?s fir...

    The legacy continues. These are enjoyable stories. Anne has done a nice job of keeping the characters together. This one was not as deadly as some. I think there was a blizzard and a rescue in the snow that was not essential, but the two threads came together and there was a redemption...

    The saga of the Navajo polices continues with the story of a camping trip for troubled teenage girls where one girl becomes lost and then a counselor is lost also.Tribal Officer Manuelito becomes involved and discovers where ancient burial sites are being looted. Several current murder...

    Having been to Navajo country several times, this novel caught my interest. Is a modern day mystery with murder and disappearance. Bernie Manuelito is a cop married to Chee also a cop. Is about family, respect, and loss. Found this an interesting read due to characters that are tenaci...
