First there was the trouble at Saint Boneventure boarding school. A teacher is dead, a boy is missing, and a council woman has put a lot of pressure on Lieutenant Joe Leaphorn and Officer Jim Chee to find her grandson. Sitting on a rooftop watching sacred clowns perform their antics in a Pueblo ceremony, Chee spots the boy. Then, suddenly, the crowd is in commotion. One of the clowns has been savagely murdered. Without a single clue, Chee and Leaphorn must follow a serpentine trail through the Indian clans and nations, seeking the thread that links two brutal murders, a missing teenager, a band of lobbyists trying to put a toxic dump site on Pueblo land, and an invaluable memento given to the tribes by Abraham Lincoln in a fast-paced, flawless mystery that is Hillerman at his lyrical, evocative, spellbinding best.

Tony Hillerman writes with style,
demonstrating deep cultural sensitivity
and creating well-developed characters.
His audiobooks are usually narrated by George Guidall,
who is a most excellent reader.
Sacred Clowns, alas, is read by Christian Baskous,
who seems to have no connection to the writing at all.
Horrible, horrible narration.
I’ll be avoiding anything narrated by Baskous in future.
