Vicky Holden and Father John O'Malley find themselves on opposite sides of an investigation.

When Arapaho Ned Windsong is shot to death, his fiancée Marcy is the only witness. Even though she identifies two Arapaho troublemakers, Ned's family clings to the belief that Marcy herself was responsible. Convinced of Marcy's innocence, Vicki agrees to represent the outsider- and finds herself at odds with her own people.

She also finds herself at odds with Father John, because the mission priest has glimpsed something in the beautiful girl that shakes him to his core. And when the men Marcy has accused of murdering her fiancé are found dead in an abandoned barn, Vicky and Father John realize they are caught in a web of lies and deceit woven by a master.

I enjoyed reading this book, it was a real page turner. A great, light mystery if you're looking for one.

Ned Windsong returns from Jackson Hole, wanting to set his life straight and dance the Sun Dance. Fr. John, who's known him since childhood, thinks Ned's troubled, but Ned doesn't seem to want to talk. Two women, one Arapaho, one white, learn that Ned's been seeing both. Ned's shot, with the white woman the only witness, making the case harder to solve. Eventually, though, both Vicky & John realize that a "big boss" must have been involved in a theft ring. Not the best in the series, but all are atmospheric and good reading.
