An outstanding new mystery to welcome bestselling Tony Hillerman to HarperCollins UK.
The plague that decimated Europe in the fourteenth century appears to have returned today in the high, dry land of the American South-West. But Tony Hillerman’s famous pair of detectives, Jim Chee and Joe Leaphorn, discover an even deadlier killer. The victims include not only police but also scientists hunting the key to the dread disease. And the outcome links modern scientific techniques with age-old stories and habits.

Tony Hillerman’s novels are always eagerly awaited and highly praised:
‘Hillerman is strong on story, certain about character, and hard to over-recommend’
‘The man is a master’
The plague that has decimated fourteenth century Europe appears to have returned today to the high dry lands of the American Soutwest. But Tony Hillerman’s famous pair of detectives, Jim Chee and Joe Leaphorn, discover an even deadlier killer.
An eagle poacher is caught red-handed, huddled over the bloody body of a police officer. It seems an easy case. But the same day a biologist working on the plague scare, disappears from the area. The defence lawyer, who happens to be Jim Chee’s girlfriend, insists the accused is innocent and Joe Leaphorn’s investigation uncovers dangerous information on the modern developments of the black death.
Every Tony Hillerman novel is a joy to read and Leaphorn and Chee are a delight.
“The man is a master”
“Tony Hillerman has placed a singular spin on the contemporary detective novel.”
“'The First Eagle' displays all the strengths of Hillerman’s writing: a vivid sense of places, nuanced characters, and a complex, engrossing plot.”
“Tony Hillerman is a wonderful story teller which means you believe every word he says.”
