People of Darkness is the fourth crime fiction novel in the Joe Leaphorn, Jim Chee Navajo Tribal Police series by author Tony Hillerman, first published in 1980. This is the first novel in the series to feature Officer Jim Chee. The story is set in New Mexico, where Jim Chee takes a position at the Crownpoint, NM office of the Navajo Tribal Police. New crimes center around a very wealthy white man and several Navajos he befriended nearly 30 years earlier, helping them support their church.

Tony Hillerman was born in Sacred Heart, Oklahoma on May 27, 1925. During World War II, he enlisted in the Army and was awarded the Silver Star, the Bronze Star and the Purple Heart after being severely injured during a raid behind German lines. He received a bachelor's degree from the University of Oklahoma in 1948.

Hillerman's writing is noted for the cultural details he provides about his subjects: Hopi, Zuni, European-American, federal agents, and especially Navajo Tribal Police. His works in nonfiction and in fiction reflect his appreciation of the natural wonders of the American Southwest and his appreciation of its people, particularly the Navajo.

Hillerman . книга People Of Darkness. Chee resisted an impulse to ask Mrs. Vines what she meant by People of Darkness. He’d never heard of them. But it would be smarter to simply let her talk.

Six Navajos are blown to bit at an oil-drilling site... A crazy Navajo starts a peyote church based on visions... A rich man's box of keepsakes is stolen. A pick-up is blown up in a hospital parking lot...

And Jimmy Chee of the Navajo tribal police has to figure out how all these events connect.

Chee has been accepted for training by the FBI. But he's also studying with his uncle to be a Singer of healing chants. As the confusing case of the stolen box turns into a homicide investigation, and Chee pursues all sorts of outré leads, he's also pondering the choice he'll have to make sometime soon between the white man's world and the Navajo way.

Chee does some brilliant police work in this book. And has to deal with an eccentric gourmet hit man. He doesn't need to join the FBI to see plenty of action!

In this book the Navajo tradition of keeping one's real name secret gets lots of play. A pretty young white woman who interests Chee keeps trying to wheedle his secret name out of him. I'll be curious to see if this romantic friendship develops in future books.

Witchcraft also figures in the plot. The Navajo concept of witchcraft as an explanation for evil is quite fascinating.

I'm reading Hillerman's Native American mysteries in order, although I'm not sure the order matters. I've loved every book in the series so far.

We are reading our way, chronologically, through the Jim Chee and Joe Leaphorn books, really enjoying Tony Hillerman's masterful character development of his continuing characters. We also really love the insights into Navajo (and other surrounding nations') mythology and culture! However, PEOPLE OF DARKNESS was definitely not among the best of Hillerman's stories. References to mythology seemed more "tacked on" to the story, rather than the intrinsic importance we've seen in the other books. Plot-wise, it seemed a bit clumsy, and we had the actual villain figured out much sooner than we usually do. The ending left several characters' issues unresolved, and was a disappointment. Generally, I remain a Tony Hillerman fan, and will certainly continue with my read-through.... but I'm glad I didn't buy this one in hardback format to add to my permanent collection--it's not one I"ll come back to in 10 years to read again.

I had thought I had read and re-read all (and I mean ALL) of Hillerman's novels until I chanced on this one. It had been my opinion that Wailing Wind was the absolute best of the series; however, I must slightly revise my list. People of Darkness is fantastic and very suspenseful -- Chee at his best. While I had arrived at the identity of the main bad guy about mid-novel, I was not sure how the story would proceed. It just kept building and building to the climax and the climax is pure Hillerman. While the Navajo may not remember Mr. Hillerman as we do, I must believe that he is keeping the Great Spirit hughly entertained.

Beautifully written, very knowledgable about Navajo culture and history, a wonderful series of books. A series of detective stories, detective/ mystery stories set in the huge Navajo reservation, about two Navajo policemen. Read them in order.

The title refers to the members of an underground Native American Church peyote cult whose totem is the mole, "the predator of the nadir." The mystery involves the attempted murder of a dying man, the disappearance of his corpse from the hospital morgue, a uranium mine, a fatal oil-well explosion 30 years earlier, and the theft of a keepsake box filled mostly with black rocks. This novel has the distinction of featuring the scariest, most chilling villain of the series: an emotionless, psychopathic, methodical killer for hire who leaves nothing to chance. The suspense builds as the point of view alternates between the killer's and Navajo policeman Jim Chee's. "People of Darkness" is one of the best in a literate and very entertaining Southwestern series. For other well-written American Indian-related mysteries, try James D. Doss' Shaman series and Margaret Coel's Arapaho series.

I love all of Tony Hillerman's books about Joe Leaphorn and Jim Chee, two Navajo police officers. The characters are fascinating, the beautiful landscape is a part of the story, not to mention Navajo culture. Challenging mysteries, love the plots and all of the characters are interesting.

Interestingly, Chee is presented as having more confidence than in later stories. This is an engaging and cogent first appearance.
