Stolen Gods

Jake Page
This is the first in a series of three mysteries featuring Mo Bowdre, a blind sculpture who lives in Santa Fe with his Anlo-Hopi girlfriend Connie Barnes. This book involves the theft of some Hopi artifacts from a upscale art gallery and the murder of the galleries owner. The murder gets Mo and Connie involved and leads to a great look at Santa Fe and it's art scene, and it also gives a peek at Hopi culture and rituals. I liked this series very much and was sad to see it end at only three book, if you like Tony Hillerman this would be a good read alike.
