I was totally drawn into the story. At the time I purchased this book I was in Lander, Wy. at a small book store looking for another book. I was actually in the area where this story took place, so I could feel the spirit of her writing even more so. The suspense of this book had me reading all through the night. I never even guessed who the person was until the end. I enjoyed this and would gladly recommend it to eveyone.

Margaret Coel's series has been running a long time, and I've never been able to get hold of the books to read them through in order, which is how I prefer to read a series. So I've only read a few, but have liked all of them I've read. Coel creates good characters in an interesting plot. Her main characters are Vicky Holden, an Arapaho who has returned to the reservation to work with and for her people, and Father John O'Malley, who is priest for the Catholic church on the reservation.The plot revolves around a cold case. The body of a young girl murdered in the early 70s is found, and the women of the tribe ask Vicky, who is a lawyer. to see that the case isn't just dismissed. They want justice for the dead woman. The case involves the American Indian Movement (AIM) and the turbulence around them in the early 1970s. Very interesting story, and recommended..

I felt for Liz and Luna, Liz's Courage. Danger came too close to Vickey and Father John this time.

The Girl with Braided Hair Margaret Coel Berkley, Sept 2007, $25.95, 320 pp. ISBN 9780425217122 Near the Wind River Reservation where the Arapaho tribe lives, a skeleton is unearthed in an out of the way ravine. At first glance the authorities believe it is an Indian woman because of her long dark braid and the clothing that was from the 1970¿s a time when AIM was stirring up trouble with the whites and against Indians who didn¿t agree with them. Records don¿t show any woman missing from the tribe during that time period. --- Several Indian women asks attorney Vicky Holden to inquire when the police will find out her name so they can release the body and give her a proper burial. Vicky is now in practice with Adam Lone Eagle normally taking on clients with major cases that impact many people and issues. However, this death in which the woman was tied up with all her bones broken and a bullet wound to the head affects her deeply and she starts investigating as does Father John the catholic priest whose mission as on the reservation. Vicky receives threatening notes and is shot at she realizes the killer is hiding on the rez behind people afraid to give him away. --- What Tony Hillman has done for the Navaho, Margaret Coel has done for the Arapaho. There are two storylines running in alternating chapters the first is the woman whose bones were found in the present goes on the run because AIM leaders thought she was an FBI snitch who got another leader killed. The second begins with finding out in the present who killed her. Both tales are exciting and filled with suspense and danger. This is a must read for anyone who loves a great mystery. --- Harriet Klausner

He watches her with worry in his eyes. "You will be fine. Your clanmates are here for you." The smoke clears and the tom's looks are revealed. He is grey, with one grey eye and one black eye. He nods to her and pads off. "I shall be watching your clan closely."
