The Fallen is David Baldacci at his very best. ―The Real Book Spy. "Amos Decker novels just keep getting better and better, and it's partly due to the careful in-depth characterization Baldacci gives his main character. ―New York Journal of Books. Bottom line is if you enjoyed the previous books of the series you will enjoy this one, also.

Nate Grisham, Black Mountain Man (Co-Authored with Grady Clark). There were also some doubts a man would cry over the death of his dog and then viciously maim a man for life during an interrogation. I happen to be a man that loves my dogs dearly, which I cannot say about many people I've met. I strongly suspect, when the end comes, folks will love their pets even more than now, because animals give us unconditional love and ask nothing in return and love will be hard to find.

The photograph functioned as a study of doomed verticality, a fantasia of straight lines, with a human being slivered at the center, like a spike. In truth, however, the Falling Man fell with neither the precision of an arrow nor the grace of an Olympic diver. He fell like everyone else, like all the other jumpers-trying to hold on to the life he was leaving, which is to say that he fell desperately, inelegantly.

The Fallen Man. by Tony Hillerman.

Comments: (7)
Ship rock, an extravagance of volcanic rock in the New Mexico desert, rises abruptly from the valley floor and soars far enough that a certain variety of humans have a compulsion to scale its cliffs. In this particular adventure, the problem encountered by the various law enforcement /mystery solvers is a skeleton on the rock, obviously in place a long while.
As a member of a series, this book has an unfair advantage: the characters haver been around the block a time or two, and they know each other. They behave in their usual fashion. The individuals imported just for this book behave as they should, to stay within the plot, but the plot has enough twists to keep you guessing as to, not so much "who done it", as " what will our heroes do about what was done" because justice is not always a thing within the law, and the law doesn't always create justice.
I would really love to give this five stars because I love the Navajo Mysteries books by Tony Hillerman. This is my second time reading the book and I had forgotten how slow the action took place. Hillerman' s knowledge of the land encompassing the Navajo reservation, the Navajo people, their customs and the other people who live on the land is enthralling. The reader becomes a part of the culture and can smell the air, the trees and the other plants; can feel the heat and see in the eye of the mind the landscape.

I have read all but a couple of the Navajo Mysteries and have read several at least twice. I regret there won't be more to enjoy. Hillerman draws his characters so completely that you know Joe Leaphorn, Jim Chew and Bernadette Manuelito when you pick up a book and begin reading.
Just like the previous entry in Tony Hillerman's "Leaphorn & Chee" series ("Sacred Clowns"), I'm really rating "The Fallen Man" at 3-1/2 stars instead of the Very Good 4 stars out of 5 showing here. For the positives, once again Hillerman's got Leaphorn and Chee each pulling on their own threads until they finally meet up in the middle, wonderful settings, nice descriptions, bad guys getting what's coming to them, etc.. For the negatives, again, just like the previous book, Hillerman has given us just too much of Jim Chee's personal pain. At least in this book, it appears that Chee has finally received enough blows to the head with blunt instruments to actually notice that his love life is not going as he expects it to be going. If we're lucky, in the next book, Chee will figure out on which side of the fence he should actually be sowing his oats. But, I guess, just like in the last book, it makes for good philosophy.

I'd also like to mention that this book seems to have a few minor inconsistencies in actions, personalities, and settings that bothered me. They're very minor: one example is in the first chapter where Hillerman's describing the sunset from Ship Rock. Essentially, he's got the Fall sun setting in the northwest when it should be setting in the southwest part of the sky.

Leaphorn has just retired, but he's still investigating. Now he's a consultant to a Washington DC law firm. Chee has been promoted to Acting Lieutenant, doing Leaphorn's old job, but he hates being an administrator.

The two men end up working on the same puzzle: was the death of rich young man eleven years earlier a climbing accident or murder?

Climbers will enjoy reading about the challenges of climbing Ship Rock, a formidable sacred mountain of the Navajos. So should any reader who likes adventure writing.

There are no ritual dances or healing sings in this book, but there's a lot about cultural differences. We see the contrast between the rich man's appetite for toys and the Navajo's preference for having just what he needs. We watch Jim Chee try to deal with his half-Navajo girlfriend's attraction to the white life in the fast lane.

There's also a very fun new cop introduced in this book: Officer Bernadette Manuelito, who's young, pretty, and even smarter than Chee.

And in addition to several murders and shootings, we follow a very interesting cattle rustling case.

The Fallen Man is yet another terrific book in the Leaphorn and Chee series.
I don't give good book reviews like some people, so I don't even attempt to. But I am addicted to this writer and his stories. As soon as I finish one book in the series, I buy and start on the next. I have learned so much about anthropology, ethnology, history, etc. I love good mysteries and detective stories, and these books never fail to satisfy. You really don't have to read them in order because Hillerman fills in the spots you might miss if you read out of order. The sexual content is implied rather than factual so the stories are tasteful, but you don't miss out on the human aspect of relationships. I haven't been disappointed with one of the books so far - I am on number 13 now.
