My mother loved Tony Hillerman’s Leaphorn & Chee mysteries. Wish she could have seen the upcoming series Dark Winds, which drops on AMC and AMC+ in June.
Here’s the caper, from Deadline:
The series, set in 1971 on a remote outpost of the Navajo Nation near Monument Valley, follows Lieutenant Joe Leaphorn of the Tribal Police as he is besieged by a series of seemingly unrelated crimes. The closer he digs to the truth, the more he exposes the wounds of his past. He is joined on this journey by his new deputy, Jim Chee. Chee, too, has old scores to settle from his youth on the reservation. Together, the two men battle the forces of evil, each other and their own personal demons on the path to salvation.
Paul McNamee says
Cool. The books were always enjoyable.
Stanley Wheeler says
I really enjoyed Hillerman’s books. The shows with Adam Beach and Wes Studi were pretty good too. I’ll look forward to seeing this new series.
Hillerman’s stories captured hard crime and detective work in a remote area, all heavily spiced with Navajo mysticism and the harsh reality of the reservation. Great stuff.

Nice to see a series about our Navajo Neighbors. Hillerman was/is classic.
Thanks for info.

I typically enjoy anything with Zahn McClarnon in it. Definitely has some strong production juice behind it!
