Not a bad whodunit story.... The characters were well developed and it kept my attention even though I am not really a fan of "whodunit"s. Try it out if you like this type of book. The end is.. well... different. I liked it!!

This is the fifteenth novel in the bestselling Wind River Mystery series and, all I can say is, this author keeps getting better and better with each new project she delivers. The characters readers love are back in action; Attorney at law Vicky Holden, and Father John O'Malley, an Irishman from Boston who has been the pastor of St. Francis mission church located on the Wind River Reservation for the last ten years. Father John is just amazed when he receives the call that yet another murder has taken place on the reservation. A young man the Father has known for years, Ned Windsong, has been found inside his home; dead from a gunshot wound. Beside the body, curled up on the floor, the police also discovered Marcy Morrison, an outsider who was supposedly Ned's fiancée. Fr. John rushes to the scene and meets up with the ex-linebacker, opera loving FBI Agent, Gianelli. The good Father tells the agent that the victim had just gotten back into town about two weeks ago and had stopped by the parish. He'd been a little distant and slightly shaky, but no matter how hard Father John had tried to get Ned to confide in him, the young man had remained quiet. The only information the Father did know, was that Ned had returned to the reservation in order to practice for the Sun Dance - a fantastic ritual that would help Ned change his life and find atonement for his sins - whatever those may have been. The only eyewitness to this horrific event, Marcy Morrison, is someone Father John rushes to meet up with. As he gets to know the young woman, he feels as if something is extremely "off" with her story. You see, Marcy is a girl from Jackson Hole that Ned met when he left the reservation for a better job and a better life. The girl claims that Ned had let go of his original girlfriend - a woman by the name of Roseanne Birdsong - who had been Ned's significant other for a long time, and who is now embroiled in this hideous crime. Marcy also claims that two frightening-looking Arapaho Indians busted into the house, shot Ned, and left her for dead; she also identifies these two men from photographs given to her by Agent Gianelli. This is the first time in this series that the attraction between John and Vicky is put on the back-burner. In this tale they're on opposite sides as Vicky tends to believe everything that her client says, and Father John feels that there's far more to the story than the girl is letting on. With two more murders, a burglary ring exposed, and a psychotic stranger who hides it very, very well, this story becomes a complete and utter page-turner that no reader will be able to put down. From the first page, the author introduces us to an Arapaho word: Niatha. This is the word for spider, a creature that is beyond mysterious. (It also happens to be the Arapaho word for 'white person,' a fact which becomes very interesting indeed). Like the creature she mentions, this author weaves her tale of mystery with expert precision. Quill says: Not since the unequaled talent of Agatha Christie, have I read a mystery novel that I really couldn't figure out until the last page. If you're already a fan of the Wind River series, than you will scream with joy when this when this book appears on the shelf. If you've not become a part of this gorgeous world, I suggest you run - not walk - to the nearest book store or library and begin immediately.

In Wyoming on the Wind River Reservation, someone murders Arapaho Ned Windsong with his white fiancée Marcy Morrison as the only alleged witness. Marcy accuses Ned's punk friends Lionel Lookingglass and Dwayne Hawk as his murderers. Suspicion also falls on Ned's former girlfriend, Roseanne Birdwoman. Though he has doubts about her veracity, Father John O'Malley provides a safe location for Marcy and also hides Roseanne. Arapaho attorney Vicky Holden is irate with Father John for doubting Marcy's account as the lawyer assumes her friend would not challenge a Native American's story, but did that of an outsider. Ned's family believes Marcy killed their son; so her televangelist father hires Vicky to protect his daughter's interests. However, both Father John and Vicky are stunned when someone kills Lionel and Dwayne as the case spins out of control with someone behind the scenes twirling The Spider's Web that engulfs everyone else. The fascination with this exciting entry is the usual partners are on opposite sides of the murder investigation. As always in this series, readers obtain a taste of modern day Arapaho life wrapped inside a murder mystery. Fans of the Holden-Father John whodunits will enjoy the latest entry due to the disagreement between the friends that adds freshness to what would otherwise be a fun but familiar Wind River mystery.
