ANNE HILLERMAN - SONG OF THE LION

Anne Hillerman will be discussing her book Sonf of the Lion at op. cit. books Mystery BNook Club at Stella's Italian Restaurant on Wednesday, June 20th from 12:00 to 1:30 p.m.

Anne continues the story of Bernadette Manelito, Jim Chee, and retired Lieutenant Joe Leaphorn from her father Tonly Hillerman's books.

When a car bomb kills a young man in the Shiprock High School parking lot Officer Brnadette Manuelito discovers that the intended victim was a mediator for a multi-million dollar development planned at the Grand Canyon.

But what seems like an act of ecoterrorism turns out to be something far more wicked and complex.  Piecing together the clues, Bernadette and her husband, Sergeant Jim Chee, uncover a scheme to disrupt the negotiations and inflame tensions between the Hopi and Dine tribes.

Retired Lieutenant Joe Leaphorn has seen just about everything in his long career.  As the tribal police's investigation unfolds, he begins to suspect that the bombing may be linbked to a cold case he handled years ago.  As Bernadette, Chee, and Leaphorn carefully pull away the layers behind the crime, they make a disturbing discovery: a meticulous and very patient killer with a long-simmering plan of revenge.
