The Ghostway is a good deep thinking mystery novel. The characters are all believable. The settings are well described. The situations that the characters are in are plausible. The Indian way is well described and easy to imagine. The Ghostway is a good book and deserves the four stars that have been awarded to it in this review. ( )

After a man is shot at the Shiprock Wash-O-Mat, Tribal Policeman Jim Chee sets off on a search that moves from a death hogan to the seedy underbelly of Los Angeles and through to a Ghost Way ceremony for one (or more...) of the story's characters. As usual, Hillerman's stories are filled with interesting details about Navajo life and culture, although this one widens the scope to include the FBI and their secret going-on as well. The personal issue that Chee is dealing with (stay with Mary and leave the Reservation or leave Mary and stay in close contact with his culture) is described in a realistic ways with the pros and cons of both decisions taking turns at winning in Chee's mind. This is a series I've read before and I am very happy that I still like it as much as I did the first time around. ( )

Actually I have read all of Tony Hillerman's books. While few would give him five stars, he is one of my favorite authors. His books are always entertaining. They are a fast effortless read—the perfect companion for an airplane passenger. Hillerman makes for a short flight. ( )

Mainly a good plot with a theme of using the WItness Program in a sneaky fashion to hide a Navajo. The excitement as the story neared the ending felt a bit rushed but the twists were engaging. Plot had a few annoying distractions: Chee's preoccupation with his floundering love life was boring; the runaway student, Margaret Sosi, was unrealistically adroit at eluding capture and fooling a seasoned assassin. The Navajo lore and philosophy brought the novel up to a 4-star rating. ( )

For Margaret Mary

With special thanks to Sam Bingham and those students at Rock Point Community School who took time to help me understand how Navajos deal with the chindis of Dine' Bike'yah in 1984.
