Publication: Harper & Row, Publishers, 1978, New York
First edition. Inscribed by the author on the half-title page, "For Ann Iverson who is one of the above (arrow drawn up to the words "Listening Woman)," Tony Hillerman." Fine in fine, price-clipped dust jacket. An old man and a teenage girl are found brutally murdered. The blind Navajo Listening Woman speaks of ghosts and of witches, but Lieutenant Leaphorn of the Navajo Tribal Police knows his people as well as he knows cold-blooded killers. His investigation carries him from a dead man's secret to a kidnap scheme, to a conspiracy that stretches back more than one hundred years.
