A Thief of Time
A Thief of Time "transcends the conventions of the simple whodunit and plunges the reader into a fully realized world, populated by complex, fascinating characters."-The New York Times
FIRST EDITION, INSCRIBED BY HILLERMAN: "For Anne Seaholt / Tony Hillerman"
Never content to write conventional detective fiction, "Hillerman innovates still further in the genre by including the development of problems associated with the sciences of anthropology and archaeology", as well as continuing his examination of the conflict between the modern world and traditional Navajo culture through the lives of Leaphorn and Chee (John Marsden Reilly, Tony Hillerman: A Critical Companion). In this, one of Hillerman's later Navajo mystery novels, he recreates his characteristic blend of mystery and internal cultural conflict for which he has become so renowned.
