Baker & Taylor
While investigating a supposed suicide of a young Arapaho on the Wind River Reservation and a hit-and-run accident in Denver, Arapaho attorney Vicky Holden and Father John O'Malley discover that both of the deaths may have been murders and set out to expose the dark secrets over which someone is willing to kill.

Blackwell North Amer
The Arapahos of the Wind River Reservation are stunned by the apparent suicide of Duncan Grover, who came to Bear Lake Valley from Denver on a vision quest. Why would someone undertake a spiritual journey in such a revered area in order to die?
A stranger's chilling confession to Father O'Malley reveals that Grover was in fact murdered, and that more deaths are sure to follow. Unable to break the confessional seal, the priest looks into the matter himself. The medicine man who prepared Grover for his quest believes that evil spirits sent by the Thunder beings ended the young man's life. But the police, unable to find a more earthbound suspect, have closed the case.
Then in Denver, Vicky Holden receives a mysterious phone call about an urgent matter involving the reservation. But a hit-and-run "accident" kills the caller before she has a chance to talk with him. Now, Vicky and Father O'Malley must uncover what it is about the reservation that people are willing to kill for.

Vicky has moved back to the city, again, to escape the rez since she is respected by white lawyers in Denver and not by her own people. Despite the distance, she and Father John still get tangled up in a murder mystery. Father John's new assistant looks so promising and is so well liked by the locals, that it is a dead give away that something bad is about to happen with him. The moccasin telegraph, while very effective, has passed an easy to misinterpret message into the city, and an old "love" comes back into Vicky's life. There is a LOT of story packed into the installment! Please start the series from the beginning or you won't be able to follow some of this.
