Mystery Private Eye
In the fifth adventure involving Arapaho attorney Vicky
Holden and her friend and confidant Father John O'Malley,
mysteries of the past bring shocking events into the
present—with far-reaching consequences for the future of
There aren't many priests vying for an assignment on a
reservation in the middle of Wyoming, so when a frail
Father Joseph Keenan returns to the St. Francis Mission
after a thirty-five-year absence, Father John O'Malley can
hardly refuse his help. But when Keenan is murdered, the
community is shocked. What reason would anyone have to kill
an elderly, ailing priest? Unless the reason dates back to
1964, the year Father Keenan abruptly left his post—and the
year dozens of Arapaho parents were told their newborns had
died from contaminated water.
That same year, Hollywood star Sharon David was born and
adopted into a white family. When the celebrity shows up in
Vicky Holden's office with clues suggesting she was born in
the area, it's clear that the glamorous actress is a lost
bird—and there may be a flock behind her. As Vicky searches
for the woman's origins, Father John discovers that Keenan
was a priest with a crushing secret. Soon, both paths lead
to a cover-up that may forever change the face of the
Arapaho tribe. But they must find proof before more lives
are lost—or the age-old seal of the confessional may keep
the truth forever hidden...
