This cryptic message was clearly meant for Father O'Malley.
The unemotional voice on the answering machine--speaking of
revenge against old enemies--wanted O'Malley to visit the
site of the Bates Battle. In 1874, Shoshone warriors led
Captain Alfred Bates's cavalry to Arapaho tribal grounds,
and nearly everyone living there was massacred. As a
nation, the Arapaho were finished, but their people
survived. Now, someone has left three dead Shoshones on the
old battlefield, positioned to mimic the bodies of those
Arapaho killed in the historic slaughter.
Vicky Holden's latest client, Frankie Montana, is a less
than sterling character who's a frequent guest of the
reservation holding cells. After a heated encounter with
the three Shoshones, Frankie has become the number one
suspect in their deaths. Despite his faults, Vicky doesn't
believe he's capable of murder. Someone is trying to stir
up a war between the Arapaho and Shoshone people--and tear
open the painful wounds of the past once more...
