Example text

Cecil suddenly began shaking. Leaphorn put his hand on the boy's shoulder. He was overcome with a wild surge of anger. "He got the horse yesterday evening," Cecil said. His voice was very small. "It was about dark, after I talked to you. " Cecil was still staring straight ahead, his hands gripping the tin box so hard that his knuckles whitened. " Cecil fell silent, the catalog completed. " "The note's in here with my stuff," Cecil said. He unlatched the box and sorted through the papers. "I thought I put it in here," he said.

So did Cecil," Leaphorn said. "It's different when they're drunks, I think," Susanne said. "That's like your father being sick. He can't really help it. " She paused. Her eyes were wet again, but she ignored it. "Now he doesn't have anything. " "He has a brother," Leaphorn said. "An eleven-year-old brother named Cecil. " "I didn't know he had a brother," Susanne said. "Not until you mentioned it. " She said it as if she found it incredible, as if she suddenly didn't quite understand George Bowlegs.

Leaphorn decided he would tell Susanne of the note, and then talk to Isaacs about it, hoping for some forgotten crumb of information which might point in the direction Bowlegs had taken. The knobby rubber of his mud tires produced a spray of gravel on the county road and then a rooster tail of dust as he jolted down the wagon track toward the commune. He was thinking that while Bowlegs was hunting his kachina, something was almost certainly hunting Bowlegs. Joe Leaphorn, who almost never hurried, was hurrying now.
