The blind shaman called Listening Woman speaks of witches and restless spirits, of supernatural evil unleashed. But Lieutenant Joe Leaphorn of the Navajo Tribal Police is sure the monster who savagely slaughtered an old man and a teenage girl was human. The solution to a horrific crime is buried somewhere in a dead man's secrets and in the shocking events of a hundred years past. To ignore the warnings of a venerable seer, however, might be reckless foolishness when Leaphorn's investigation leads him farther away from the comprehensible ... and closer to the most brutally violent confrontation of his career. Performed by George Guidall… (mere)

    Winds of Evil af Arthur William Upfield (danhammang)
    danhammang: Tony Hillerman eagerly speaks well of Upton's Napoleon Bonaparte novels, claiming them as his inspiration for his own Joe Leaphorn series. They both weave the beauty of their respective locales into the warp of their tales.

Book three in the Joe Leaphorn mystery series begins with Listening Woman trying to perform a cleansing / healing ritual for Hosteen Tso, an old man who refuses to divulge all he knows. The blind healer leaves Tso’s side for a few moments, during which time he is murdered. About six months later, Joe Leaphorn is nearly run off the road by a mystery man with a large dog in his car, there are reports of missing Boy Scouts, and people have reported seeing a helicopter (or helicopters) in the area.

I like Leaphorn; he’s smart, determined, physically and mentally strong, quick to respond to a threat but also deliberate and cautious. It took me quite a while to get into the rhythm of this mystery. The convoluted plot didn’t help much, and my attention wandered. Once Leaphorn got caught up in the chase, however, I was fully engaged and fairly flew through the second half of the book. ( )

Comfortable writing style and Hillerman is really starting to flesh out Joe Leaphorn in this 3rd book of a long series. I love the Navajo Way, myths, ceremonies, taboos and depictions of daily life. A fairly ambitious and slightly implausible storyline that bogs down a bit in the middle and wraps up a bit quickly. Still, a fast, enjoyable read and I’ll keep moving along to Book 4. ( )

[Some spoilers]. There were some strong pieces of story-telling that were excellent and plot developments that were were weak, which distracted me from the theme: the holiness of the Navajo Way and the importance of sand paintings to bring harmony. 'Listening Woman' was interesting and I wanted to know more about her, have her play a bigger part in unravelling the mystery. The description of Joe Leaphorn (detective) tracking through the canyons and ultimately surviving a fire were visually evocative and suspenseful. The backstory to the robberies/Wounded Knee violence was rather tiresome and felt repetitive, possibly because the plot became too convoluted. Without developing so many mini-mysteries and scenarios (did we really need Theodora Adams?), the plot might have flowed more satisfactorily. Despite those failings, it was an overall good novel, just not stellar. ( )

The southwest wind picked up turbulence around the San Francisco Peaks, howled across the emptiness of the Moenkopi plateau, and made a thousand strange sounds in windows of the old Hopi villages at Shongopove and Second Mesa.
