Mystery Private Eye
It is the time of the annual Sun Dance on the Wind River
Reservation, the ancient sacred ceremony that unites
Arapahos in prayer and peaceful renewal. Yet when a blond,
beautiful outsider arrives on the rez, murder, suspicion
and recrimination follow in her path. Marcy Morrison claims
to be engaged to Arapaho Ned Windsong, even though Ned
never mentions a fiancé or plans to marry anyone—before he
is found shot to death. Marcy, brutally attacked at the
scene, identifies two Arapaho troublemakers as the men who
burst into Ned's house and shot him. Nothing ties Marcy to
the murder, yet all eyes on the reservation turn to her—the
outsider—and Ned's family is convinced she is responsible.
When Vicky Holden agrees to represent the outsider, she
finds herself at odds with her own people.
Soon Vicky also finds herself at odds with her long-time
friend Father John O'Malley who has glimpsed something in
the beautiful outsider that shakes him to his core and
convinces him that Marcy Morrison may not be the innocent
victim she claims to be. When the men Marcy has accused are
found murdered in an abandoned barn, another suspect
surfaces, Roseanne Birdwoman, Ned's former fiancé. Except
that Father John fears Roseanne may be the killer's next
As Father John and Vicky are drawn into the web of lies and
deceit cast over the reservation, they realize they are up
against a master—a psychopathic killer determined to play
out the game to the deadly end.
