Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Bestseller Coel surpasses her own high standard in her 10th whodunit (after 2003's Killing Raven) to feature Arapaho lawyer Vicky Holden and Father John O'Malley. An exhibit of Edward S. Curtis's early 20th-century Plains Indians photographs has attracted a lot of visitors to the museum of St. Francis Mission on the Wind River Reservation. When someone shoots to death a descendant of a tribal chief shown in one of the Curtis pictures and the museum's new curator disappears, there could be a connection to a murder committed in 1907 on the rez. Meanwhile, Father John's assistant is preparing the mission for a visit from Wyoming senator Jaime Evans, who may soon be announcing his presidential candidacy and who proves to have a family link to the tell-tale Curtis photo. Handsome attorney Adam Lone Eagle steps from the shadows and resumes his pursuit of Vicky, who is still trying to come to terms with her fatal attraction to Father John. Stir in a crazed ex-CIA operative, and you have a hint of what awaits you in this action-filled page-turner. Coel draws readers into early Arapaho life as smoothly as she brings them into the sinister goings-on at present-day Wind River, masterfully blending authentic history with an ingenious plot. Agent, Rich Henshaw. (Sept. 7) Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
Library Journal
Coel's latest addition to her Wind River Reservation series featuring Father John O'Malley and Arapaho attorney Vicky Holden offers a fascinating plot as Vicky must deal with two murders. One occurred back in 1907, when a visiting photographer documented Indian life and a chief's daughter was murdered. Now, while the photographs are on display, a modern descendant is killed. Coel lives in Boulder, CO. Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
School Library Journal
Adult/High School-The killing in 1907 of a tribal leader's daughter serves as the background for murders that take place on the present-day Arapaho Reservation. The earlier crime, the recent murder of the wife of the tribal council leader, and the disappearance of the newly appointed curator of the tribal museum all draw a common link from a picture in the museum's exhibit of Edward S. Curtis's early-20th-century photographs of Plains Indians. In this 10th title to feature Father John O'Malley and Arapaho lawyer Vicky Holden, the two investigators work independently at first, but they eventually run into one another. While they are intent on finding the killer, their underlying unrequited love for one another intensifies the emotional atmosphere of the tale. In an action-driven ending, they pull together to solve all the parts of the plot's puzzle except their own troubled love. Idiosyncrasies, personal preferences, and physical attributes of characters seamlessly interweave people and plot in this stand-alone novel.-Pam Johnson, Fairfax County Public Library, VA Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
