A variety of short stories with Father John and Vickie called the Arapaho Ten Commandments, as well as some other stories with Vickie. The stories I really enjoyed was with Molly Brown and J.J. A good collection of short stories.

This anthology opens with ten short stories, each based on one of the Ten Commandments. The two protagonists of the Wind River Mystery series, Vicky Holden and Father John O’Malley, grace each one of the stories. And then there is the ironic novella, “Molly Brown and Cleopatra’s Diamond,” describing how a newly rich woman crashes Denver society. Molly was a real-life person, wife of J.J. Brown, who struck it rich finding a mother lode of gold in what everyone thought was only a source for silver, and grew this stake into a larger fortune through business acumen. Additional short stories, under the general heading “Stories from Beyond,” ironic tales basically with a mystery twist, some featuring Vicki and the Father, and one other involving Molly Brown, continue until the anthology concludes with two personal essays. The first, an introspective and informative look at how a story is born: from the germ of an idea or fact developed through an author’s imagination; the other, an interesting look at the author’s approach to writing based in the history and characters of the West and its past. The author’s highly respected, well-written novels in the Wind River series are illustrative of the themes of the two essays, based in the present, mysteries steeped in the past Arapaho culture and history. These stories were written over a long period, from 1997 to2011, and were published in a variety of media. The collection is a valuable addition to anyone’s library, and is highly recommended.
