I'm enjoying Anne Hillerman's novels much more than I did those of her father. His were so macho, so much from a he-man perspective, that I could sometimes hardly read them. In my opinion, the quality took a huge swoop upwards when Bernadette Manuelito was added to the cast. I'm glad she has stayed, and Chee, too.
Authors should not try to continue a previously written series, especially if written by your father. I was always a Hillerman fan, the daughter not so much so-something is missing!
Tony Hillerman’s daughter continues series with Chee, Leaphorn, and Manualito. Anne Hillerman did a great job at setting the scene and the interactions between these beloved characters. I thought the mystery was a bit lackluster (as though it were an afterthought). The book was enjoyable but not compelling.
Excellent! I hope she keeps writing more.
I didn't think this was as good as her first one. It dragged a bit.. I would rate it "G"
I could not stand this book. I gave it 4 pages then I kicked it to the curb !! I really enjoyed that. ICK is too nice a description for this dribble. By the way...... I'm not sorry at all for my comments. When something stinks you gotta let people know.
Sorry, but this was just OK for me. NOT Tony Hillerman by a long way.
I've enjoyed both of Anne Hillerman's Bernadette Manuelito books. She seems to be staying true to her father's characters' attributes while expanding Bernie's character and role in the books. The books are very enjoyable. I like the way she continues weaving the Navajo traditions and culture into the story like her father did. I'm glad I don't have to say a permanent goodbye to Tony Hillerman's Navajo world and it's characters. The tradition continues.
This second of Tony Hillerman's daughter Anne's continuation of the Navajo tribal police series isn't quite up to her father's speed--yet. I haven't read the first one, but have it on hold. This one's main problem is too many threads, as Bernie and Chee are separated for most of the book, and the plots only comes together at the very end. Some great stuff here, as Bernie deals with her beloved little sister's drinking and lack of motivation on the one hand, and a very strange traffic stop that turns into something most bizarre. She can feel the bad vibes from the man she stops, who doesn't appear to have been drinking or drugging, but who has a loaded pistol in his glove compartment. He offers her a big bribe to "forget this ever happened." The FBI get involved, but won't tell her a thing. That doesn't sit well, and she pursues it anyway, going to see Lt. Leaphorn. He's gotten a laptop, so can communicate better. He has ideas both for this case, and Chee's work on a movie set. He tells Bernie to "be careful." She is, but almost gets herself in trouble anyway. The usual Hillerman historical and cultural background woven into the story. I hope she writes more.
Good book! I will look for more from the new author.
