Vicky Holden and Father John O'Malley find themselves on opposite sides of an investigation.
When Arapaho Ned Windsong is shot to death, his fiancée Marcy is the only witness. Even though she identifies two Arapaho troublemakers, Ned's family clings to the belief that Marcy herself was responsible. Convinced of Marcy's innocence, Vicki agrees to represent the outsider- and finds herself at odds with her own people.
She also finds herself at odds with Father John, because the mission priest has glimpsed something in the beautiful girl that shakes him to his core. And when the men Marcy has accused of murdering her fiancé are found dead in an abandoned barn, Vicky and Father John realize they are caught in a web of lies and deceit woven by a master.

When Ned Windsong, an Arapaho who recently returned to the Wind River Reservation, is murdered, the beautiful outsider Marcy Morrison, his fiancée, identifies two Arapaho troublemakers as the killers. But despite that, Marcy feels she is a suspect herself and hires Arapaho attorney Vicky Holden. In addition, Father John O’Malley agrees to let Marcy stay at the mission. Father John senses something off about Marcy, but there is no shortage of suspects, including Lionel and Dwayne, the troublemakers, and Ned’s old girlfriend, Roseanne Birdwoman. Father John and Vicky soon find that Ned was involved in a series of burglaries, and the two discover lies piled upon deceit as they try to find out who killed Ned. Coel’s fifteenth mystery set on the Wind River Reservation stands on its own, with enough background information about Father John and Vicky Holden to help new readers keep up. Coel also subtly works in Arapaho customs as well the social troubles facing those on the reservation, making for a meaty mystery. --Kat Kan
