    Story
    (37)

    Reunited by a grave robber and a corpse, Navajo Tribal Police Lieutenant Joe Leaphorn is trying to determine the identity of a murder victim, while Officer Jim Chee is arresting Smithsonian conservator Henry Highhawk for ransacking the sacred bones of his ancestors. But with each peeled-back layer, it becomes shockingly clear that these two cases are mysteriously connected - and that others are pusuing Highhawk, with lethal intentions. And the search for answers to a deadly puzzle is pulling Leaphorn and Chee into the perilous arena of superstition, ancient ceremony, and living gods.

    Joy says: "Navajo Nation lives"
    "Great Narrator for Hillerman"

    If you could sum up Talking God in three words, what would they be?

    Interesting, different, excellent


    What does Christian Baskous bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I love Christian Baskous as a narrator for Tony Hillerman's books. He evokes the speech patterns of the Navajo. I liked George Guidall, but Baskous is much better. Please bring us more Hillerman books narrated by Baskous.


    Any additional comments?

    The story is excellent even though much of it takes place outside of Indian Country (Leaphorn and Chee go to Washington DC to solve this mystery). Still, the story is as rich and absorbing as Hillerman's best mid-career books (Thief of Time, etc.) Please please please bring us more Tony Hillerman books narrated by Christian Baskous.
