Overview

This is for the Indian priest.



The cryptic message was clearly meant for Father O’Malley. The unemotional voice on the answering machine, speaking of revenge against old enemies, wanted O’Malley to visit the site of the Bates Battle. In 1874, Shoshone warriors led Captain Alfred Bates’s cavalry to Arapaho tribal grounds, and nearly everyone living there was massacred. As a nation, the Arapaho were finished, but their people survived. Now, someone has left three dead Shoshones on the old battlefield, positioned to mimic the bodies of those Arapaho killed in the historic slaughter.



Vicky Holden’s latest client, Frankie Montana, has become the number one suspect in their deaths. Despite his less than sterling background, Vicky doesn’t believe he’s capable of murder. Someone is trying to stir up a war between the Arapaho and Shoshone people—and tear open the painful wounds of the past once more…

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Bestseller Coel's descriptive artistry, as shown in her 11th whodunit (after 2004's Wife of Moon), surely makes her the James Lee Burke of Native American mystery writers. Readers will be immediately entrenched in the solid reality of the Wind River Reservation and Father John O'Malley's alarm on receiving a cryptic voice-mail message that leads him to a century-old battlefield and three newly slain Shoshones. Could these be revenge killings for the bloody battle that took place between the now co-existing Arapahos and Shoshones? When a client of Arapaho attorney Vicky Holden, Frankie Montana, is accused of the murders, Vicky's law partner and lover, Adam Lone Eagle, urges her to pass Montana to the attractive new lawyer in town. Past experience sets off her warning bells, and Vicky begins to wonder about Adam's interest in the beautiful blond newcomer. The wary familiarity between Vicky and Father John continues even as the two are drawn into an expanding circle of death. Delving into the depths of this magnificently crafted volume is like digging into your favorite layer cake-thoroughly delicious. Agent, Rich Henshaw. (Sept.) Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
Ancient quarrels erupt anew between the Arapaho and Shoshone tribes on the Wind River Reservation. The massacre at Bates Battlefield, when Shoshone warriors helped the U.S. Cavalry ambush an Arapaho village, was a turning point in Old Time, marking the end of the Arapahos as a nation. But poor planning and indifference at the Department of Indian Affairs placed the remaining Arapahos in the southeast corner of Wind River, only miles from their Shoshone rivals. Their fragile coexistence is rocked when Father John O'Malley, pastor of St. Francis Mission, gets a strange call about dead bodies at Bates and goes there to find three murdered Shoshones, posed as if killed in battle. O'Malley's worries grow as he meets Edie Bradbury, a student at Central Wyoming College, whose Shoshone boyfriend, Trent Hunter, has disappeared. Detective Andy Burton blames the killings on chronic troublemaker Frankie Montana, who was in a bar fight with Hunter and the Crispin brothers just a few weeks before. But Frankie's lawyer, Vicky Holden, disagrees. Despite her lover Adam Lone Eagle's entreaties to stop defending losers like Frankie and turn her attention to high-profile cases instead, she seeks help from O'Malley and history professor Charles Lambert to prove her client's innocence before tribal war breaks out. Coel's latest Wind River chronicle (Killing Raven, 2003, etc.) offers a skillful blend of history and mystery, with characters whose motives are seldom what they seem.

    Haunted by History

    Once again, in her eleventh mystery, Margaret Coel has written a powerful story of two people whose modern lives intersect with the history of the Arapaho Indians. Father John O'Malley is the Jesuit pastor on Wind River Reservation in Wyoming. Vickie Holden is an Arapaho lawyer. In case after case, the two have worked together to uncover the evil that resonates from the past into life on the modern reservation. Eye of the Wolf tells of the 1874 Bates Battle in which Shoshones led white troops to the Arapaho village in order to destroy the tribe. A century later, the two tribes live on the same reservation, but a phone call to Father O'Malley could disrupt the uneasy truce. When the Shoshone bodies are found posed on the battlefield, O'Malley feels pressure to find the killer before the reservation erupts in warfare. Vickie feels the same pressure because one of her Arapaho clients is the primary suspect. Coel's mystery combines respect for the history and culture of the tribes with the problems of life on the modern reservation. O'Malley and Holden must find the 'evil spirt wanting to stir up trouble and bring us more death' before the Wind River Reservation erupts into open warfare.

    Jaey

    This isn't a part of our territory yet, but this can be the all wolf den. It is twice the size of the delta den. It has three streams running through it. There are lots of dens branching off of it that are small enough to fit two full grown wolves and four pups. There is no bedding, for there are no wolves yet in here. Lichens hang over the entrances of all of the caves.

    Fangpaw

    Fangpaw stalks in, bristling and angry. She lunges at a mouse and bites its throat. Rage pounds through her veins. 'No one wants you,' she thinks furiously. 'Try making friends.' 'How many times are you gonna say that!? It's no use!' She thinks back and forth. Sadness dims her fury. She pads off, looking for a lonely den to call her own. Somewhere safe and quiet, with a hidden beauty. 'Wings waiting to spread.' She thinks. 'I like that.' Her own dark wings are the same blackish-gray as her pelt, but with white streaks that hadn't shown on her fur. "Wings waiting to spread." She says out loud, dropping her mouse. She decides to put it on the fresh-kill pile, then find her own den.

    Eye of the Wolf

    I couldn't put the book down once I started reading it. Coel's knowledge of western history really shines in this one. And I love Vicky Holden's character.
