Overview

Arapaho attorney Vicky Holden and Father John O’Malley are caught between two cultures that won’t let go of the past—and a killer who won’t leave any witnesses…

On the anniversary of the Battle of the Little Bighorn, Colonel Edward Garrett, a well- known Custer impersonator, leads a troop of reenactors in a cavalry parade down Main Street in Lander, Wyoming. But a group of Arapaho youth disrupts the parade by riding their horses around the column, just to remind everyone who actually won the battle. Then history repeats itself when, in the confusion, Garrett is shot dead.

Father John O’Malley knows in his heart the Arapaho are not guilty. And Vicky Holden finds herself professionally and personally compromised from getting involved. But what begins as a murder soon reveals itself as a conspiracy that neither Father John nor Vicky could have foreseen. And someone wants to ensure that the truth they discover will die with them…

Praise

“In lesser hands, this tale of long-buried hatred, greed, and cowardice might falter, but Coel’s mastery at blending the past and present, as well as the blurry lines between fact and fiction, make this a satisfying historical read.” —Publishers Weekly

“Another spellbinding story of Native American history set in modern times…Coel’s characters are well developed, her descriptions, vivid and clear. The plot keeps the story moving quickly and there’s a twist at the end readers may not see coming. As usual, Coel’s dialogue is crisp and authentic and her experience as a historian and expert on Arapaho Indians shows.” —Examiner.com
