This is the first novel in the series to feature Officer Jim Chee. The story is set in New Mexico, where Jim Chee takes a position at the Crownpoint, NM office of the Navajo Tribal Police. New crimes center around a very wealthy white man and several Navajos he befriended nearly 30 years earlier, helping them support their church.

I love Tony Hillerman's novels! They easily suck you in, but they never leave you feeling like you've read something pointless (like a number of popular mysteries I've read). I recommend reading these books with pictures of the southwestern landscape - it really brings things to life. 5/15 Finished People of Darkness and enjoyed it. Hillerman's books are sometimes slow to start but pick up well. 7/14 Finished all three, and although I enjoyed them I think I like the mysteries with Leaphorn in them better.
