The First Eagle

Tony Hillerman: The First Eagle (USA 2010)

From the Publisher:
For acting Lieutenant Jim Chee, the murder of a Navajo Tribal Police officer seems like an open-and-shut case when he discovers a Hopi poacher huddled over the victim's butchered corpse. However, Chee's newly retired predecessor, Joe Leaphorn, believes otherwise.

Hired to find a missing biologist who was searching for the key to a virulent hidden plague -- and who vanished in the same area and on the same day the policeman was slain -- Leaphorn suspects both events are somehow connected. And the reported sighting of a "skinwalker" -- a Navajo witch -- has Leaphorn and Chee seeking answers to a deadly riddle in a dark place where superstition and science collide.

The First Eagle

Tony Hillerman: The First Eagle (USA 1999)

From the Publisher:
When Acting Lt. Jim Chee catches a Hopi poacher huddled over a butchered Navajo Tribal police officer, he has an open-and-shut case - until his former boss, Joe Leaphorn, blows it wide open. Now retired from the Navajo Tribal Police, Leaphorn has been hired to find a hot-headed female biologist hunting for the key to a virulent plague lurking in the Southwest. The scientist disappeared from the same area the same day the Navajo cop was murdered. Is she a suspect or another victim? And what about a report that a skinwalker - a Navajo witch - was seen at the same time and place too? For Leaphorn and Chee, the answers lie buried in a complicated knot of superstition and science, in a place where the worlds of native peoples and outside forces converge and collide.

The First Eagle

Tony Hillerman: The First Eagle (USA 1998)

From the Publisher:
When Acting Lt. Chee catches a Hopi eagle poacher literally red-handed - huddled over the bloody body of a young Navajo Tribal police officer - he has an open-and-shut case. Even the Feds - usually at odds with Chee - agree, and it seems the Hopi is headed for the gas chamber. Until Joe Leaphorn shows up to blow Chee's case wide open.

Leaphorn, now retired from the Navajo Tribal Police, has been hired to find Cathy Pollard, a hotheaded biologist who disappeared from the same remote area on the same day the Navajo cop was murdered. Is she a suspect? A victim? And what are Chee and Leaphorn to make of the report that a skinwalker - a Navajo witch - was seen in the same area at the same time?

To answer these questions, Leaphorn and Chee must immerse themselves in the enigmatic web of scientists hunting the key to the most virulent form of bubonic plague since the Middle Ages.

Tony Hillerman: The First Eagle. Harper Collins, ISBN: 0060175818 (September, 1998), 278 p., $25.00.
