Finding Moon, by Tony Hillerman

Finding Moon, by Tony Hillerman

I’ve enjoyed Hillerman’s tales of Leaphorn and friends, but Finding Moon isn’t in that series. Moon Mathias is the main character here, and I found him to be a whiny, selfish, and unappealing lead. The story is somewhat interesting and the setting vividly described, but the characters are one-dimensional and dry. Not Hillerman’s best work.

First Sentence:
Shirley was giving Moon the caller-on-hold signal when he came through the newsroom door.
