New Mexico Mystery Novel Writer Remembered
By Gary Worth
Las Cruces, NM – He was consistently a bestselling author for more than 35 years. His mystery novels were unique - set in the four corners region of New Mexico and Arizona, and noted for the cultural details they provided for the main characters of the books - mainly native Americans. As KRWG's Gary Worth reports, the late Tony Hillerman was also a New Mexico resident who did not hesitate to share his experience with would-be writers in this state.
