Author Tony Hillerman is a master storyteller in his creation of Navaho tribal policeman Joe Leaphorn and Jim Chee in "A Thief of Time."
An archaelogy dig is the catalyst for doubt, ,
conflict, greed and murder in New Mexico. In
their personal lives both Chee and Leaphorn
battle their own doubts. Chee is conflicted
as his role as a Medicine Man and as a tribal
policeman. Leaphorn has his own doubts about
Chee's belief about dealing with murders.

This is one of Hillerman's best stories.

I really hope that further novels of Tony
Hillerman are again presented on PBS. Sadly,
Tony Hillerman is gone, but his stories will
live on and on. I hope that Robert Redford
will be willing to be the catalyst for more
Hillerman novels brought to life.

The actors in The Thief of Time, Coyote Waits
and Skinwalkers are at the top of their game.
The scenery is spectacular, and the pace of the
stories are magical. I watch all of the DVD's
again and again.

Thank you,
Donna L.Wolfe

I read all of Tony Hillerman's novels and enjoyed them immensely. I was, however, very disappointed in all three PBS movies. While the acting was, in my opinion, superb, the stories just seemed lifeless; and I absolutely hate cursing with the Lord's name, which occurred in these movies. BIG Kudos to Wes Studi who played Leaphorn, and Adam Beach who played Chee; their presence made the movies worth my while to watch.

Missing: All that's important to a Tony Hillerman novel

By Disappointed

Comments about PBS Mystery!: A Thief of Time DVD:

How does a film come to lack the air of mystery that landscape and cultural visage have given to a novel? Do the earlier ones do better?

Really Great and Enjoyable Show !

Comments about PBS Mystery!: A Thief of Time DVD:

Reasonably faithful to Hillerman's book, being Hillerman advised and approved,with very good acting and, along with the companion "Coyote Waits", very much worth watching. I highly recommend these two DVDs to anyone who enjoyed the books - - you won't be disappointed. I was hesitant, as the DVDs often aren't as good as the books, but these are.

Tony Hillman fans,must have.

Comments about PBS Mystery!: A Thief of Time DVD:

Fans of the Hillman books/stories will need these since we have
no new stories now(except hopefully his daughter). And
unfortunately we probably won't have any more of these
movies, certainly not containing these actors. What a loss.

Comments about PBS Mystery!: A Thief of Time DVD:

This was the very first book I read by Tony Hillerman and from then on I was hooked. This story is one of the best and acted well. So glad that Robert Redford took up the torch to make these movies and wish he would make more - there are so many wonderful tales left to see :)
