Lost Birds
Joe Leaphorn is back!

Joe Leaphorn is back and doing what he does best: solving mysteries!


Lost Birds is a thrilling and moving chapter in the Leaphorn, Chee & Manuelito series involving several emotionally complex cases that will test the detectives in different ways.

Exploring the issue of the adoption of Indigenous children by non-native parents, Anne Hillerman delivers another thought-provoking, gripping mystery that brings to life the vivid terrain of the American Southwest, its people, and the lore and traditions that make it distinct.

AMC Dark Winds' Bernie, actress Jessica Matten, reads the audiobook.
