Human bones lie on a ledge under the top of Shiprock Peak, the remains of a murder victim undisturbed for more than a decade. Three hundred miles across the Navajo reservation, a harmless old canyon guide is felled by a sniper's bullet. Joe Leaphorn, recently retired from the Navajo Tribal Police, believes the shooter and the skeleton are somehow connected and recalls a chilling puzzle he was previously unable to solve. But Acting Lieutenant Jim Chee is too busy to take any interest in a dusty cold case ... until the reborn violence of it hits much too close to home. Enhanced CD: CD features an interactive program which can be viewed on your computer, including: a photo galary, an author Q & A and a 35 years of excellence timeline.… (més)

The Fallen Man is a good story from the beginning through the end. The settings and characters are all well described and the situations are all believable. As in all of Tony Hillerman novels, there is always a bit of humor when the characters do not take themselves too seriously. The Fallen Man is the reason to solve the mystery. Four stars were awarded to this book. ( )

Joe Leaphorn is not comfortable with his recent retirement nor the prospect of going private, especially when the client is a dodgy corporation bent on destroying the water for money. Jim Chee hates being an acting Lieutenant for the Tribal Police, but hates the aftermath of getting shot almost as much as facing the incompatibility between himself and Janet Pete. Rookie officer Bernadette Manuelito is uncomfortable with her superior officer, but does get him to back her up in the investigation of some unusual cattle rustling.
Add in the skeleton of a man Leaphorn investigated as a man with an odd inheritance stipulation who who went missing eleven years ago while rock climbing on a sacred cliff.
The Leaphorn/Chee books never seem to get old even though this is the first time I've read this one and the last time I had the time to read him was last century!
Bought the audio on sale from Chirp.
Christian Baskous is the more than capable voice actor. ( )

If readers like mountain climbing and cattle rustling, they may enjoy THE FALLEN MAN.

It is the only Tony Hillerman book that I started and read into around 30 pages, then skipped to the end.

An odd Leaphorn and a strange Chee... ( )

Schlicht. Fast paced. Predictable ( )
