READ ¹ The tale teller Behind a rash of burglaries Their case takes a complicated turn when Bernie finds a body near a popular running trail The situation grows complicated when the death is ruled a homicide and the Tribal cops are thrust into a turf battle because the murder involves the FBIAs Leaphorn Chee and Bernie draw closer to solving these crimes their parallel investigations begin to merge and offer an unexpected opportunity that opens a new chapter in Bernie’s li. Originally published at Reading RealityI found the original Leaphorn and Chee series sometime in the 1990s when I had a horrifically long commute in the Chicago suburbs and audiobooks saved my sanity if not my life Audiobook publishing was nowhere near as robust as it is today and there weren t a lot of options for someone who spent 3 hours in their car 5 days a week for most of 9 yearsI listened to a lot of books and The Blessing Way the first book in the series and all of the following books that were available during those long drives The stories told in the inimitable voice of George Guidall swept me away kept me awake and left me enthralled every timeWhen the original author Tony Hillerman died in 2008 the series seemingly ended At least until his daughter Anne picked it back up again in 2013 with the marvelous Spider Woman s Daughter adding Navajo Tribal Police Officer Bernie Manuelito s name to the series as well as her perspective to the continuing seriesThe Tale Teller is the fifth book in that continuation and it swept me away from the very first page as all of the books in this series have doneOne of the things that has made the return of the series so marvelous has been its addition of Bernie to the mix Bernie is a Navajo Tribal Police Officer as is her husband Jim Chee and their mentor the legendary Lieutenant Joe LeaphornThey each bring a different perspective to their work to their culture and to life in the Four Corners Leaphorn is older semi retired and does not believe in many of the traditions while still revering the history Chee although younger has much belief in the traditions of their people and once studied to be a healer Bernie Manuelito is a woman caught between the demands of her career and the need to still fulfill as many of the traditional roles of oldest daughter to her aging mother as she can manage including the role of attempting to keep her wayward younger sister on the straight and narrowWhile the torch directly passed from Leaphorn to Chee and Manuelito at the beginning of Spider Woman s Daughter Leaphorn has remained a presence in the series as he recovered from a near fatal gunshot wound but continued to provide information and support in whatever capacity he happened to be capable of at the timeIn The Tale Teller while Leaphorn is not uite back to fighting form he has healed to the point where he can manage to pick up his work as a private investigator part time consultant to the Tribal Police and freuent mentor and sounding board for Chee and ManuelitoThis is the first story in the continuing series where Leaphorn has been fully capable of performing his own investigations and providing a full third point of view on eventsAnd what fascinating events they areAt first there seem to be three separate cases here but as so often happens in mysteries in the end that are only two This is one of the rare mysteries where everything does not tie up neatly in a single bow Instead we have two bows one reasonably neat and one a bloody messBernie finds a dead body on a hiking trail guarded by the victim s faithful dog An old friend of her mother s finds a valuable piece of jewelry that he previously reported stolen being sold at a flea market leading into Chee s investigation of a sudden string of home robberies And Leaphorn takes on a case from the Tribal Museum An important donation may have been stolen either before it arrived or after Or it may not have been in the box at all That the donor wishes to remain anonymous adds to the mystery That one of the important pieces of the puzzle dies almost the instant that Leaphorn gets involved shifts the problem from seemingly minor to possibly deadlyWhile not all of the cases end happily following the trail of clues and bodies is a page turner from beginning to end and a delightEscape Rating A I read this in a single day This was one I picked up pretty much everywhere like at meals in the bathroom in the car as long as someone else was driving and pretty much every time I had a couple of spare minutesI sunk right back into this place with these people on the very first page and didn t come out until the endWhat I love about this series is the way that it combines its police procedural mystery with a perspective into a part of the US that outsiders don t often get to experience with an if not insider s perspective at least a well informed and reverential outsider s point of viewThis would be a very different series if the investigator were one of the FBI agents who often intrude as they do in this case Instead it is the point of view of people who are insiders in a world that most of us are not while they still are outsiders within their own culture so that they can both see the why of things while not being emotionally involved with all of the who The cases in this particular story are complex especially Leaphorn s investigation into the possibly missing artifact As readers we learn a lot about both the history of the Navajo people and the treatment of precious artifacts At the same time the case has echoes in the past while it is motivated by events in the present The resolution is heartbreaking but fitsChee and Manuelito s cases turn out to have tentacles than an octopus ranging from burglaries to internet scams to witness protection to murder but at least that case which gets a bit too close to Bernie s family ends with a mostly happy resolutionThat the perpetrators were hiding in plain sight but not obvious until very near the end made both cases fascinating to readI m grateful to those long ago long commutes now that they are in the past for the terrific series such as this one that they introduced me to And I m looking forward to returning to the Four Corners with Leaphorn Chee and Manuelito at the next opportunity
