The Replacement Child


Christine Barber


   I found this novel, published in 2008,  to be an extremely entertaining novel. It is basically a murder mystery that takes place in Santa Fe and Toas. The book is a "who- done-it" to the end and the novel was a winner of the Tony Hillerman prize.

   The author has the credentials and eye to capture the nuance of the Angelo and Hispanic culture of northern New Mexico. In 2008 she was living in Albuquerque perusing a career in medicine.. She also had been an editor at TheSanta Fe New Mexican and a journalist for the Albuquerque Journal and the Gallup Independent.
