This three-in-one volume contains the very apex of Tony Hillerman's award-winning writing: Skinwalkers, A Thief of Time, and Talking God. Each novel is complete and unabridged, and each features both of Hillerman's beloved Navajo Tribal Policemen, Lieutenant Joe Leaphorn and Officer Jim Chee, battling ancient evil and modern crime.
Skinwalkers, the first book to unite Leaphorn and Chee, draws them deep into the realm of Navajo witchcraft as they investigate three murders connected only by their lack of motive and their methods - All reminiscent of "skinwalkers" or witches.
A Thief of Time, the first of Hillerman's mysteries to become a New York-Times bestseller, pits the two Navajo sleuths against ruthless grave-robbers, whose desire for beautiful, precious Anasazi pots has moved them to commit a bizarre series of murders.
Talking God sends Leaphorn and Chee to Washington, D.C., where they must confront the white world on its own terms as they search for a nefarious museum conservator and find themselves snared in a web of terrorism and assassination.
Besides consistently riveting suspense, these three novels offer beautifully etched portraits of the young, educated yet deeply traditional Chee and the older, more worldly Leaphorn. These books also boast the masterful prose, unsurpassed evocations of the Southwest, and fascinating insights into Navajo culture that have made Tony Hillerman so enormously popular.
