Review quote

"All of Tony Hillerman's Navajo tribal police novels have been brilliant, but "A Thief of time is flat-out marvelous."-- "USA Today"Vintage Tony Hillerman: suspenseful, compelling! Hillerman transcends the mystery genre and this is one of [his] best." -- "Washington Post Book World""Skillful. Provocative. The action never flags." -- "New York Times Book Review""Hillerman's story is mesmerizing, not only for its suspense, which is delicious, but for the picture the author paints of the landscape in which it unfolds." -- "Cosmopolitan""Brilliantly paced, highly evocative. Hillerman is surely one of the finest and most original craftsmen at work in the genre today." -- "Boston Globe Book Review""Beautifully constructed . . . Builds to a socko finish." -- "Los Angeles Times Book Review""Rich with detection . . . He knows the people, the topography, and the footing." -- "Chicago Tribune""A keen observer in a world not his own . . . Hillerman tells of death and life in the Navajo nation." -- "People""Hillerman evokes the Arizona desert and Navajo lore as no other writer can." -- Phyllis A. Whitney
