There are several plots to this book, some of which are related. The trick for Joe Leaphorn, Bernie Manuelito, and Jim Chee is to put the pieces together. Leaphorn is tasked with helping a woman find her birth parents to determine if she is Dine. Leaphorn also has a phone call from his past that is interrupted by an explosion that turns out to have been at a Navajo school that Bernie Maneulito is assigned to look into. To add to the mix Leaphorn;s house mate Louisa's son shows up after being absent for years. This is another good addition to this great series.… (mais)

Leaphorn is investigating a missing woman and seeking biological parents of an adopted woman. Bernie is called to a school explosion. Chee is assuming new responsibilities in new position. All is complicated by arrival of estranged son of Louise, Leaphorns companion and by discovery of a body in the damaged school. The finale seems a little rushed and with end that don't quite weave in.

Lost Birds is written by Anne Hillerman.
Published in April 2024, Lost Birds continues the Leaphorn, Chee & Manuelito mystery series.
We are involved in several complex, overlapping and thought-provoking ‘cases’ happening simultaneously.
Joe Leaphorn, Jim Chee and Bernie Manuelito give their ‘all’ to solve a murder investigation, an explosion, adoptees looking for their birth parents, feral dogs attacking sheep, extortion, gambling debts and personal family crises.
They work with honor, respect and cultural sensitivity.
I am always impressed with the characterizations, the plots and cultural insights these stories provide.
Another brilliant title by Anne Hillerman *****

Bernie is investigating an explosion at a school while Leaphorn is investigating a missing woman. The two cases are seemingly linked.
