"Anne Hillerman is a star."J. A. Jance, New York Times bestselling author

From New York Times bestselling author Anne Hillerman, a thrilling and moving chapter in the Leaphorn, Chee & Manuelito series involving several emotionally complex cases that will test the detectives in different ways.

Joe Leaphorn may be long retired from the Navajo Tribal Police, but his detective skills are still sharp, honed by his work as a private detective. His experience will be essential to solve a compelling new case: finding the birth parents of a woman who was raised by a bilagana family but believes she is Din based on one solid clue, an old photograph with a classic Navajo child's blanket. Leaphorn discovers that his client's adoption was questionable, and her adoptive family not what they seem. His quest for answers takes him to an old trading post and leads him to a deadly cache of long-buried family secrets.

As that case grows more complicated, Leaphorn receives an unexpected call from a person he met decades earlier. Cecil Bowleg's desperation is clear in his voice, but just as he begins to explain, the call is cut off by an explosion and Cecil disappears. True to his nature, Leaphorn is determined to find the truth even as the situation grows dangerous. Investigation of the explosion falls in part to Officer Bernadette Manuelito, who discovers an unexpected link to Cecil's missing wife.

Bernie also is involved in a troubling investigation of her own: an elderly weaver whose prize-winning sheep have been ruthlessly killed by feral dogs.

Exploring the emotionally complex issues of adoption of Indigenous children by non-native parents, Anne Hillerman delivers another thought-provoking, gripping mystery that brings to life the vivid terrain of the American Southwest, its people, and the lore and traditions that make it distinct.

Lost Birds is a very good detective novel. The story deals with alcohol and gambling addictions, runaways, adoptions, Navajo rug weavers, and lost birds. If one wants to know what a lost bird is, one will have to read the book, as it is worthwhile to endeavor. Four stars were given to this book. Enjoy. ( )

Anne Hillerman continues to do a good job building on her father's characters. I enjoy watching them develop. ( )

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. ( )

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 ***** ( )
