On Wyoming's Wind
River Reservation, police discover the skeletal remains of a young woman. Arapaho attorney Vicky Holden learns that the woman was Liz Plenty Horses, a member of the 1970s militant organization known as AIM, the American Indian Movement. As Vicky continues to uncover the truth behind Liz's murder, someone seems to be following her every move -- leaving her cryptic notes and breaking into her apartment.
Vicky is aided by Father John O'Malley, a mission priest who shares a special bond with her. As Vicky gets closer to the truth behind Liz's murder, she believes that AIM members may have thought Liz a traitor, and her real killer may be ready to strike again.
