Publisher's Summary

Two Native American boys have vanished into thin air, leaving a pool of blood behind them. Lieutenant Joe Leaphorn of the Navajo Tribal Police has no choice but to suspect the very worst, since the blood that stains the parched New Mexican ground once flowed through the veins of one of the missing, a young ZuNi. But his investigation into a terrible crime is being complicated by an important archaeological dig and a steel hypodermic needle. And the unique laws and sacred religious rites of the ZuNi people are throwing impassable roadblocks in Leaphorn's already twisted path, enabling a craven murderer to elude justice or, worse still, to kill again.

    "Impossible to Forget"

    "Dance Hall of the Dead" has stuck in my mind for many years as among the best of Tony Hillerman. The Audible edition confirms and expands that in the following ways: 1) this book features an intricate and exciting mystery plot; 2) the reader/listener learns a great deal about the Zuni and Navajo cultures and the differences between them; 3) there's a never-to-be-forgotten lesson about differing priorities; and 4) George Guidall makes every adventure even better!

    Two boys - one Navajo, one Zuni - are in great danger, and Joe Leaphorn of the Navajo police sets out to discover why. The tale involves an archaeological dig, Zuni Kachina gods, and 3 contrasting cultures, among other features of life in the desert. Leaphorn, in his search, learns more about Zuni customs and the ways of the ancient peoples of the American Southwest - and, thus, so do we.

    Some reviewers have remarked that Hillerman's books are a bit slow. But, that's much of the point, really. Joe Leaphorn demonstrates strength, wisdom, and especially the value of patience and silence in understanding the deeds men commit. He's an unforgettable character - worthy of George Guidall!

    "Not the right narrator"

    He is great on other books but Mr. Guidall is not the proper narrator for Hillerman books.
