Summary

Summary

A New York Times bestseller

New York Times bestselling author Tony Hillerman, whom the New York Times Book Review calls “a wonderful storyteller” is back with another mystery featuring the legendary Lieutenant Joe Leaphorn.

Since his retirement from the Navajo Tribal Police, Joe Leaphorn has been called on occasionally by his former colleagues to help them solve a puzzling crime. And Leaphorn, aided by Jim Chee and Bernie Manuelito, always delivers.

But this time, the problem is with an old case of Joe’s—his “last case,” unsolved and haunting him. And with Chee and Bernie on their honeymoon, Leaphorn is on his own. The case involved a priceless Navajo rug gone missing. Now, years later, Leaphorn is picking up the threads of a crime he had thought impossible to solve.

Tony Hillerman is at the top of his form in this atmospheric and stunning novel.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Enthralling…Only Hillerman could so masterfully connect such disparate elements as an ancient cursed weaving, two stolen buckets of piñon sap, and the Vietnam War. The conclusion is sure to startle longtime fans of this acclaimed mystery series.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“The gentle style of this laconic author and his even more laconic Leaphorn are immensely appealing, as are his insights into Navajo behavior, such as a reluctance to interrupt when anyone is speaking. Hillerman is unbeatable at the flat planes of realistic conversation..For readers bent on the whodunit aspect, the title offers a whopping clue, but The Shape Shifter has more to offer than mystery.” Washington Post
