Edition Notes: 

This is the hardcover, limited first edition copy of Talking God, the ninth book in Tony Hillerman's Navajo Mystery Series. This edition comes with a multicolor slipcase designed by Peter Thorpe which pictures a Navajo country scene of sandstone formations enclosed by the pictorial representation of Rainbow God on the front and a Washington D.C. scene enclosed by a red and blue border on the back. Unlike many Hillerman novels, most of the book takes place in Washington DC rather than in the Southwest. The book was designed by Alma Orenstein and published by Harper & Row.
