THE SPIDER’S WEB
The latest of this long-lasting series by New York Times bestselling author Coel shows again her expertise about the Arapaho Indians. The book is wonderful, using a blend of history and mystery that draws the reader’s attention and keeps it until the very end, combining well-developed characters and a real mystery.
Father O’Malley and Arapaho attorney Vicky Holden are on opposite sides of an investigation on the Wind River Reservation. When Ned Windsong is shot to death, his fiancée Marcy is the only witness and accuses two troubled men from the reservation of the crime. When the two men are killed, she becomes a suspect. Vicky believes Marcy is innocent and volunteers to defend her, dividing the reservation and leaving Vicky at odds with much of her tribe. (PRIME CRIME, Sep., 304 pp., $24.95)
