You can check out anytime you like...but you can never leave!

Yes, he will be greatly missed by his fans.

PHOENIX (AP) Tony Hillerman, author of the acclaimed Navajo Tribal Police mystery novels and creator of two of the unlikeliest of literary heroes Navajo police officers Joe Leaphorn and Jim Chee has died. He was 83.

Hillerman's daughter, Anne Hillerman, said her father's health had been declining in the last couple years and that he was at Presbyterian Hospital in Albuquerque when he died of pulmonary failure Sunday.

Hillerman lived through two heart attacks and surgeries for prostate and bladder cancer. He kept tapping at his keyboard even as his eyes began to dim, as his hearing faded, as rheumatoid arthritis turned his hands into claws.

"I'm getting old," he declared in 2002, "but I still like to write."

Tony Hillerman wrote novels featuring Lt. Joe Leaphorn and Jim Chee of the Navajo Tribal Police. The area they patrol is bounded in nothern Arizona, what was the large famous hole in the ground.

Like many of you, I badly missed my Tony Hillerman novels after Mr. Hillerman died. Just before he died he and I communicated and he reviewed a book I was writing, a legal thriller, entitled Wages of Greed, which was very much in the vein of his Leaphorn/Chee series. He liked it well enough to gave me written permission to invoke his name in the book's promotion.

Wages of Greed has now been published (Apr. 2015) and is available on Amazon/Kindle. I invite you to preview it on that service or on my website,
