As, per usual, with the Native American story, the view from the inside is wildly different from the published and bigoted white side. .. and, since publishing something always make it true, It is about time the other side of the "coin of truth" is published!
The mystery is the sprinkle of sugar that draws us into this story and the ongoing relationship between the two major characters is icing on this very delicious cake.
Kudos to Margaret Coel for a delightful read !
The theft of Indian artifacts in the past and the present leads to murder and all sorts of other bad behavior in this book. Father John at the mission gets involved because the Arapahos are outraged, and he always has their interests at heart. Arapaho lawyer Vicki Holden gets involved too, as usual. She always seems to have a client or clients mixed up in the latest trouble at the Wind River Reservation.
The story is enjoyable, but I do feel Coel is falling into something of a formula. The one thing that had changed in the last couple of books is that Father John and Vicki don't totally agree on who's up to what. The suppressed passion between the two of them is losing its ability to add tension.
I was, however, happy to learn about the Wild West Show and the Arapaho Show Indians. I always take something away from these books.
