Single DVD

Its title comes from a Navajo proverb, and COYOTE WAITS carries all the supernatural suspense for which Tony Hillerman's novels are famous. Officer Jim Chee is convinced that a drunken Navajo shaman, Ashie Pinto, killed a fellow officer. Pinto won't deny it, but a kinswoman believes he is innocent, and her persistence drives Chee and Lieutenant Leaphorn deeper into puzzling mystery, with each new death. Who--or what--is behind it all?

Beautiful scenery

Comments about PBS Mystery!: Coyote Waits: An American Mystery Special DVD:

Very satisfied with product. Have read all the Hillerman books. Found the movie lived up to the book. Interesting characters and spectacular scenery. Worth watching if only for the views of the Arizona mesas.

Mystery and culture

Comments about PBS Mystery!: Coyote Waits: An American Mystery Special DVD:

For me, the most interesting part of "Coyote Waits" is the allusion to, in this case, the Navajo culture that could be further explored such as the title and to whom one was permitted to speak within the Clan structure. also, the stunning images of this southwestern landscape illustrate what Hillerman has so deftly woven together in the ideas of regard for the Earth and personal ethics.

Excellent Hillerman Story

By Jsquare

Comments about PBS Mystery!: Coyote Waits: An American Mystery Special DVD:

This is an excellent story from Hillerman, a solid who-dunnit that has a sad but appropriate close. Definitely entertaining. The sound occasionally fades so I did a rewind to rehear some parts.

Comments about PBS Mystery!: Coyote Waits: An American Mystery Special DVD:

Love Tony Hillerman's books. He 'paints' such evocative sights and sounds of the ecological area
and weaves a treasured old tale into a modern day mystery. His characters are alive and translate well to the screen and the actors who portray them. Make more!
