With her gritty mysteries steeped in authentic Native
American culture, New York Times bestselling author Margaret
Coel is “widely considered the most accomplished heir to
Tony Hillerman’s legacy,” (Scripps Howard News Service). In
the latest Wind River novel, Arapaho attorney Vicky Holden
and Father John O’Malley confront a ruthless killer in the
wake of a miraculous event.
A mysterious penitent confesses to murder, and then flees
the confessional before Father John can identify him. Two
months later, Vicky discovers rancher Dennis Carey shot dead
in his truck along Blue Sky Highway. With the tragic news
comes the exposure of an astonishing secret: the most sacred
creature in Native American mythology, a white buffalo calf,
was recently born on Carey’s ranch.
Making national headlines, the miraculous animal draws a
flood of pilgrims to the reservation, frustrating an already
difficult investigation. As visitors throw the reservation
into turmoil, Vicky and Father John try to unravel the
strange events surrounding both Carey’s murder and the
recent disappearances of three cowboys from his ranch.
It could be coincidence, given the nomadic life of the
cowboy trade, but when one of them fails to appear in court
to testify on an assault charge, Vicky wonders if Arnie
Walkfast and his Arapaho buddies are guilty of more than
just assault. And at the back of Father John’s mind is the
voice from the man in the confessional: I killed a man…

Both books have their own merits, and sound like they're
going to be great reads!! I found the story about Custer
especially interesting, because I wasn't aware of all of the
facts pertaining to him. I love the perspective you used to
write these books, and I'm looking forward to reading both
