R.I.P Tony Hillerman
Tony Hillerman, one of my favourite authors, died on 26 October 2008. I've started re-reading his books about Jim Chee and Leephorn, members of the Navajo Tribal Police.
I do enjoy crime novels that are set in a specific environment or a specific era. Elizabeth Peters and her British archeologists in 19th century Egypt is one example.
Another one is Ellis Peters' medieval mystery-solving munk Cadfael.
Entertainment combined with culture/history...
