February Reading: Books #5-8

5. William T. Close, M.D, Ebola: A Documentary Novel Of Its First Explosion, 404 pages, Africa, Paperback, 1991. Very interesting, not at all what I expected; a novelization of the people involved and their reactions, made even more fascinating since I have had family do medical missionary work in Zaire before this time. 4/5

6. Tony Hillerman, The Sinister Pig, 318 pages, Mystery, Paperback, 2003 (Navajo Mysteries, Book 16). Bernie Manuelito working the Mexican border patrol with a case that ties to her friends in the Navajo Police up north. 4/5

7. Tony Hillerman, Skeleton Man, 241 pages, Mystery, Hardback, 2004 (Navajo Mysteries, Book 17). Cowboy Dashee enlists the help of his friends to clear his cousin of jewel theft by searching for the man who gave him a diamond from the wreckage of a plane at the bottom of the Grand Canyon. 3.5/5.

8. Tony Hillerman, The Shape Shifter, 276 pages, Mystery, Hardback, 2006 (Navajo Mysteries, Book 18). The final book of the series, with Joe Leaphorn solving a mystery he thought solved from his days as a rookie. 3/5.
