Mystery and Thriller
New York: Harper & Row, 1970. First edition. The author's first book that introduced Joe Leaphorn. A near fine book in a very good dust jacket. Wear to the extremities, some crimping to the bottom of the front panel and minor sunning to the jacket spine. Correct first edition with number line on last page ending with a 1. A very presentable copy with an early signature and inscription by Hillerman to an unknown friend of his: "You'll see I finally got that manuscript published. But I've got to go back & try again to do a better job with Navajos. Tony Hillerman." Apparently written for a friend who had been following Tonyís attempts to get his book published. Signed with Hillerman's early straight T signature. He certainly succeeded, writing 18 novels that featured detectives Joe Leaphorn and Jim Chee. Signed by the author.
