From Publishers Weekly
Starred Review. Bestseller Coel's descriptive artistry, as shown in her 11th whodunit (after 2004's Wife of Moon), surely makes her the James Lee Burke of Native American mystery writers. Readers will be immediately entrenched in the solid reality of the Wind River Reservation and Father John O'Malley's alarm on receiving a cryptic voice-mail message that leads him to a century-old battlefield and three newly slain Shoshones. Could these be revenge killings for the bloody battle that took place between the now co-existing Arapahos and Shoshones? When a client of Arapaho attorney Vicky Holden, Frankie Montana, is accused of the murders, Vicky's law partner and lover, Adam Lone Eagle, urges her to pass Montana to the attractive new lawyer in town. Past experience sets off her warning bells, and Vicky begins to wonder about Adam's interest in the beautiful blond newcomer. The wary familiarity between Vicky and Father John continues even as the two are drawn into an expanding circle of death. Delving into the depths of this magnificently crafted volume is like digging into your favorite layer cake;thoroughly delicious.

Father John O'Malley from the St. Francis Mission and Arapaho lawyer Vicki Holden are as usual in the thick of the action. Father John found the bodies, and Vicki is defending the chief suspect, a young Arapaho ne'er-do-well.
The story is quite gripping with several interesting subplots. Father John is dealing with the active alcoholism of his new assistant while struggling to maintain his own sobriety. Vicki is trying to make a go of new relationship, and it's not easy. A young girl, considered white trash by almost everybody, is faced with hard decisions about her pregnancy. One of the murdered Indians is the baby's father.
In the midst of all this Father John and Vicki get involved in life-threatening situations. I enjoy watching these two in action. In this book Father John exercises his fighting skills, and Vicki shows herself to be quick with a gun. The suppressed attraction between the two of them adds a certain tension to a plot already full of tensions.
The Wind River mysteries are always entertaining. Eye of the Wolf is particularly good.
