New York Times Bestseller

From New York Times bestselling author Tony Hillerman comes the eighth novel featuring Leaphorn and Chee as they find themselves in hot pursuit of a depraved killer.

"All of Tony Hillerman's Navajo tribal police novels have been brilliant, but A Thief of Time is flat-out marvelous."—USA Today

At a moonlit Indian ruin where "thieves of time" ravage sacred ground in the name of profit a noted anthropologist vanishes while on the verge of making a startling, history-altering discovery. Amid stolen goods and desecrated bones, two corpses are discovered, shot by bullets fitting the gun of the missing scientist.

There are modern mysteries buried in despoiled ancient places, and Navajo Tribal Policemen Joe Leaphorn and Jim Chee must plunge into the past to unearth an astonishing truth and a cold-hearted killer. In his breakout novel, Hillerman paints a stunning portrait of the psychology of murder—and offers a heart-rending example of love and forgiveness.
