Now, a skeleton with a bullet hole in the back of the skull has been discovered at the bottom of a ravine on the Wind River Reservation. The body was that of a woman who was murdered sometime in 1973. With the police reluctant to investigate, Arapaho attorney Vicky Holden and Father John O'Malley must unravel the truth-even if it incites the malice of a long-dormant killer.

Bill Houghton, January 3, 2011 (view all comments by Bill Houghton)
One in a series of excellent books set on the Arapaho reservation in Wyoming, this book examines the lasting effects and attitudes of the Arapaho toward the American Indian Movement. This is a murder mystery series, but, like all good murder mysteries, the murder is just a hook on which to hang the examination of relationships and, in the case of this series, the tensions between Arapaho and white culture, and the sometimes uneasy compromises the Arapaho make in living in a white-dominated world while trying to maintain the core of their culture. Way too much sentence there...

If you liked Tony Hillerman's books, you'll like these.
