From page one the story held me hostage, demanding my full attention. And now, I need to go back to the beginning and read this series in order. Though this is an older series (1st book released in 1970), I can't get enough of Leaphorn and Chee.
Skinwalkers by Tony Hillerman
"This one really kept me guessing. Kept me on the edge of my seat almost to the last page! I'm enjoying the Hillerman series. The author has a great voice, the plots are unique, the characters are drawn vividly. If you like mysteries, I can recommend " Read more of this review »

“Life is not what we live; it is what we imagine we are living.”
Pascal Mercier, Night Train to Lisbon

“A feeling is no longer the same when it comes the second time. It dies through the awareness of its return. We become tired and weary of our feelings when they come too often and last too long.”
Pascal Mercier, Night Train to Lisbon

“Be courageous and try to write in a way that scares you a little.”
Holley Gerth

“Most of us are one of two things: blind or chicken-shit. We wouldn't know a crossroads in our lives if it had a set of stoplights and a Denny's.”
Larry Brooks, Bait and Switch

“If you’ve ever wondered why some writers who, in your humble opinion, don’t write as well as you do yet are rich and famous while you struggle onward, this is the reason. They are great directors.”
Larry Brooks
