message 1: by Thom (new)

Thom Dunn I want to vote for Tony Hillerman but don't know which of his novels venture into Arizona specifically.....On the other hand, one could claim any activity in "Four Corners" as being Arizonan.

Hillerman Country is not, of course, a novel.

NEED HELP HERE

I have the same problem. Will have to look them all up individually, I guess! :)

Rainbowheart Removed The Glass Castle, which is a memoir, not a novel.

Mindy Jones Devil's Highway isn't a novel.

Rainbowheart Thanks for the heads up! I removed Devil's Highway.


message 7: by Mindy (new)

Mindy Jones Thank YOU for being so responsive.

Scott Seckel You're missing a new one: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/4...
Part of it is set in Tucson, most in Phoenix.


message 9: by Scott (new)

Scott Seckel Synopsis:
Dry heat. Drifting sand. Broken people.
In Arizona Time, they weave into a hypnotic haze where the ghost of Tom Mix shares the secrets of the West, an unlikely love takes root, and a murderous drug-dealing backpacker synthesizes marijuana and metaphysics into a philosophy for the modern age.

Arizona Time is set in the post-frontier American West, a landscape shaped by Larry McMurtry, Breaking Bad, Sam Shepherd, and Leslie Marmon Silko. It is a classic Western, but like no other Western before.

Struggling photographer Ponder Lee Catan returns to Arizona after heartbreak and finds counsel in strange places. Isabelle Emerson, a glamorous New York art gallery manager, flees west after traumatic horror. Val Anglemann, scion of a long line of frontiersmen, nephew of a U.S. senator, and outdoorsman unhinged by drugs, seduces himself into creating a final stand.


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads I was going to suggest adding it yourself but I see you're the author.


message 11: by Scott (new)

Scott Seckel Is it your list, Susanna? Could you add me?


message 12: by Kathy (new)

Kathy As far as I can tell,
Until Proven Guilty (J.P. Beaumont, #1)
by J.A. Jance

is set in Seattle, not Arizona. Jance's other series is in Arizona...


message 13: by Mike (new)

Mike Guillen Based entirely in Arizona, and I hope it captures the culture of my home state well!
