Tony Hillermanís breakthrough Navajo police novel, Skinwalkers, comes to PBS in a two-hour American MYSTERY! Special executive-produced by long-time Hillerman fan Robert Redford. Independent filmmaker Chris Eyre (Smoke Signals) directs co-stars Adam Beach (Windtalkers, Smoke Signals) and Wes Studi (The Last of the Mohicans, Dances with Wolves) as officers Chee and Leaphorn.  The broadcast premieres Sunday, November 24, 2002 at 9pm on PBS.

Skinwalkers is the first in a projected series of Hillerman stories on MYSTERY! and represents a new crime beat for the traditionally British-oriented series.

Features on the SKINWALKERS Web site include: 

· Navajoland: As MYSTERY! fans know, the setting of  the crime is everything. We replaced the British countryside with Navajolandóbut what does that really mean? Learn more about this corner of America and its people.  Tony Hillerman himself takes you on a guided tour through his favorite spots, with photos taken by his brother.
