Rock with Wingsis Anne Hillerman’s second crime novel featuring the beloved Navajo characters created by her father, Tony Hillerman, in his long-running, Edgar Award-winning mystery series. Set against the magnificent landscape and ancient culture of the vast, arid reservation lands in the American Southwest, the series hold a special place in mystery readers’ hearts, and many cheered its return when Anne Hillerman revived it with the New York Times bestseller Spider Woman’s Daughter. “Hillerman uses the southwestern setting as effectively as her late father did,” says Publishers Weekly, “while skillfully combining Native American lore with present-day social issues.”

Chasm • Since Major John Wesley Powell first explored the Colorado River in a dory, geologists have been drawn to the Grand Canyon. Frankie MacFarlane’s no exception. When her old friend, Dora Simpson, calls to ask Frankie to fill in as geology professor for a small group of students taking a whitewater trip through the heart of the Canyon, Frankie jumps at the chance. Eight days. One hundred and eighty-eight miles on the River. One mile deep into the earth. Paradise. What could go wrong? Everything. On Day 1, Frankie wrenches her knee. On Day 2, a solo kayaker forces her to choose between being gutted by a Bowie knife and drowning in the frigid water. Frankie chooses the river. And the game of cat and mouse begins. Who wants Frankie dead? And why? Could it be related to the break-in at her Tucson home the week before? As Frankie searches for answers, she discovers that one of the students, Molly McKuen, is traveling incognito, fleeing a forced marriage. Has the Family, with tentacles reaching from the North Rim to Mexico, tracked Molly into the depths of the Canyon? If so, the few exit routes from the Canyon bottom will be watched. On Day 4, the threads come together at Phantom Ranch, the only place in the Canyon where bridges link trails descending to the River from the North and South Rims. But will ecoterrorists, aided by a soldier suffering PTSD, bring down the bridges before Molly can escape? And will Frankie, Dora, and their young charges survive?

Navajo Tribal cops Jim Chee and Bernadette Manuelito, and their mentor, the legendary Lieutenant Joe Leaphorn, investigate two perplexing cases in this exciting Southwestern mystery from the New York Times bestselling author of Spider Woman's Daughter.
Doing a good deed for a relative offers the perfect opportunity for Sergeant Jim Chee and his wife, Officer Bernie Manuelito, to get away from the daily grind of police work. But two cases will call them back from their short vacation and separate them--one near Shiprock, and the other at iconic Monument Valley.
Chee follows a series of seemingly random and cryptic clues that lead to a missing woman, a coldblooded thug, and a mysterious mound of dirt and rocks that could be a gravesite. Bernie has her hands full managing the fallout from a drug bust gone wrong, uncovering the origins of a fire in the middle of nowhere, and looking into an ambitious solar energy development with long-ranging consequences for Navajo land.
Under the guidance of their mentor, retired Lieutenant Joe Leaphorn, Bernie and Chee will navigate unexpected obstacles and confront the greatest challenge yet to their skills, commitment, and courage.
