Author Anne Hillerman discusses her newest work, Cave of Bones, with a book signing after.
SANTA FE MYSTERY AUTHOR VISITS PAGE ONE 3:00 PM SUNDAY, APRIL 29
Anne Hillerman, mystery novelist and former writer for the "Albuquerque Journal," will be at Page One Books 3:00 pm Sunday, April 29, to talk about and sign "Cave of Bones," her fourth novel of Leaphorn, Chee and Manuelito.
The book is described as such: "When Tribal Police Officer Bernadette Manuelito arrives to speak at an outdoor character-building program for at-risk teens, she discovers chaos. Annie, a young participant on a solo experience due back hours before, has just returned and is traumatized. Gently questioning the girl, Bernie learns that Annie stumbled upon a human skeleton on her trek. While everyone is relieved that Annie is back, they’re concerned about a beloved instructor who went out into the wilds of the rugged lava wilderness bordering Ramah Navajo Reservation to find the missing girl. The instructor vanished somewhere in the volcanic landscape known as El Malpais. In Navajo lore, the lava caves and tubes are believed to be the solidified blood of a terrible monster killed by superhuman twin warriors. Solving the twin mysteries will expose Bernie to the chilling face of human evil. The instructor’s disappearance mirrors a long-ago search that may be connected to a case in which the legendary Joe Leaphorn played a crucial role. But before Bernie can find the truth, an unexpected blizzard, a suspicious accidental drowning, and the arrival of a new FBI agent complicate the investigation."
Hillerman continues the mystery series her father, the best-selling author Tony Hillerman, created beginning in 1970. Anne's debut novel, "Spider Woman's Daughter," follows the further adventures of the characters Tony Hillerman made famous: Jim Chee, Joe Leaphorn and Bernadette Manuelito. The book received the Spur Award from Western Writers of America for Best First Novel. Her second mystery in the series, "Rock with Wings," was released in May 2015, and the third book, "Song of the Lion," was released in May 2017. All of her mystery novels have become New York Times bestsellers. She also is the author of "Tony Hillerman's Landscape: On the Road with Chee and Leaphorn" with husband/photographer Don Strel. In collaboration with St. Martin’s Press she established The Tony Hillerman Prize for best first mystery novel set in the Southwest. Anne belongs to many writers’ organizations, has written for the "Albuquerque Journal," and served on the board of Western Writers of America. She lives and works in Santa Fe with frequent trips to the Navajo Nation.
