I really enjoy all Margaret Coel's books and this one was special for the history. I have been to the area and really appreciated it more as I always had trouble remembering the details of the events.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Killing Custer had more twists and turns, but Vicky and Father John go with their guts and it falls in place as usual. Excellent story line and Margaret Coel tells it so well. Look forward to her next one.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Book number 15 in the Wind River series by Margaret Coel - 5 stars. During a parade to celebrate the opening of the rodeo season the reenactor portraying General Custer is murdered - both Father John and Vicky Holden become involved in the investigation. Father John is mostly attempting to reassure the families of the Indians involved that the police will seek justice and find those who actually committed the crime, not simply arrest the closest Indian. Vicky is drawn into the investigation by the wife of the Custer reenactor, and thus hindered in her desire to help the two braves who are wrongly accused.
This story is told predominately from Vicky's point of view and is, therefore, a bit more emotionally introspective than I prefer, but that does not reduce my appreciation of this story at all. If I had any complaint at all it would be that the cops are relatively lazy, simply jumping on the "guilty Indians" bandwagon - my 30 years in the criminal justice system does not support that characterization. However, in the end, I was able to suspend my disbelief sufficiently to love this story.
