There is no surprise that this novel won the 2017 Tony Hillerman Prize. Do not assume that the prize indicates that the story-line parrots any of the Hillerman books, though there are some similarities. The story is centered around the traditions of a Pueblo (rather than Diné as the Hillerman books have been) and involve murders that somehow seem to be related to tribal traditions and ceremonials that are forbidden to non-tribal individuals.

If you have read my comments on previous books, then you know that I am drawn to first novel efforts by authors. This one fits into that pattern. This book is a first novel by this author (who happens to be a local one for me) and it is a wonderfully crafted mystery. There was a lot of research that went into this story and that, along with a plot that kept my attention from the first page to the end makes me want to recommend this book to any mystery lover.
