Edition Notes: 

In 1994, the Armchair Detective Library, a division of Otto Penzler Books, published three runs of Tony Hillerman's 1978 novel Listening Woman. This edition, with a green striped dust jacket, black cloth covered boards, and with gold embossing on the spine, is an example of the trade edition, replete with a new introduction to the novel written by Hillerman himself. At the center of the front cover of the dust jacket is an inset on-the-bias drawing of Hillerman, and Hillerman's autograph is reproduced in the bottom right corner.
