Spider Woman's Daughter Book Summary

Short-Summary:

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

Anne Hillerman, the talented daughter of bestselling author Tony Hillerman, continues his popular Leaphorn and Chee series with a Navajo Country mystery filled with captivating lore, startling suspense, bold new characters, vivid color, and rich Southwestern atmosphere.

Navajo Nation Police Officer Bernadette Manuelito witnesses the cold-blooded shooting of someone very close to her. With the victim fighting for his life, the entire squad and the local FBI office are hell-bent on catching the gunman. Bernie, too, wants in on the investigation, despite regulations forbidding eyewitness involvement. But that doesn't mean she's going to sit idly by, especially when her husband, Sergeant Jim Chee, is in charge of finding the shooter.

Bernie and Chee discover that a cold case involving his former boss and partner, retired Inspector Joe Leaphorn, may hold the key. Digging into the old investigation, husband and wife find themselves inching closer to the truth—and closer to a killer determined to prevent justice from taking its course.

    Thank you, Anne Hillerman, for continuing to write about the Navajo Tribal Police. I loved the book. You father's books taught me so much about this beautiful area and these wonderful people. I came to the southwest from northeast OH with many misconceptions about reservation life and the people who live here. Learning of him through PBS Mystery series I came to appreciate the land, it's people, and their culture. Please continue to represent this area as he did. And most importantly, thanks for a good story.

    I loved Tony Hillerman's books and was sad when I heard he passed away. However, his daughter, Anne, has picked up the thread of Tony's stories and continued without a hitch in her excellent book, Spider Woman's Daughter. I hope she continues to write more books about the Navajo policemen I grew to enjoy in Tony's books

    Fans of Tony Hillerman's books will find much to love and nothing to disappoint in this well-crafted novel. Although a new reader will miss many references to prior stories, the novel and the mystery it contains can be savored and solved on its own merits. Read it! Then go visit -or revisit- the stark beautiful landscapes and novels that inspired this one. Thanks for keeping those worlds alive!
  • In her father's footsteps.

    As far as I'm concerned, Ms. Hillerman has hit a home run with this, her first fictional book. It is a worthy continuation of her father's Joe Leaphorn-Jim Chee mysteries. I hope she writes more of them!
