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
