On the windswept plains of Wyoming's Wind River Reservation, Arapahos have gathered for the Ethete powwow, a time to reaffirm the balance and harmony in life. But balance and harmony quickly give way to fear and confusion when respected tribal chairman Harvey Castle is found murdered at the powwow camp, and the evidence points to the chairman's nephew. Father John O'Malley, S.J., pastor of St. Francis Mission, and Vicky Holden, Arapaho attorney, do not believe that Anthony Castle - one of the most promising young people on the reservation - is capable of murder. Together they set out to find the real criminal and clear Anthony's name.
The trail that Father John and Vicky follow winds across the high plains of the Wind River Reservation into Arapaho homes and community centers and the fraud-infested world of Indian oil and land deals. Eventually it leads to the past - the Old Time - when the Arapahos were forced to leave their homes on the central plains and relocate on the reservation. It is through the horrendous crimes committed then that Father John and Vicky discover the motive for the murder of the tribal chairman a century later. But as they close in on the killer, they become the next targets ...

The first in the mystery series by Margaret Coel is set on the Wyoming Wind River Reservation of the Arapahos. Father John O'Malley, a mission priest, and Arapaho attorney Vicky Holden labor to discover who killed a tribal chairman. The imperfect sound quality in this recording detracts from Stephanie Brush's poised and lively narration of issues of modern Indian life and tradition, fraud and murder. Nonetheless, Brush dexterously blends details of the vivid countryside, culture, history and conspiracy. B.J.L. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
