  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cindy | 2/12/2014

    " A compelling mystery with insights into the Navajo culture. This is the latest in the Wind River Reservation Mysteries. A great series! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Joanne | 1/29/2014

    " Meh. Reporter is shot at / stalked by serial assassin while she uncovers scandal involving Arapaho/Cheyenne lands and a possible casino. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ken | 1/29/2014

    " 1st in new series by Coel; Denver investigative reporter, Catherine McLeod, learns more about her heritage while delving into the impact of the Sand Creek massacre on the plans for a new Arapahoe-Cheyenne casino "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mary Havlovic | 1/29/2014

    " Blood Memory is a book that our Sisters-in-Crime Group chose as their book to read for the month of September. I picked up the book and just could not put it down. Had to keep reading until I finished it. I found the book to be well written and intriguing. I found myself looking over my shoulder every now and then and jumping when I heard a noise. Began to wonder if the assasin was in my house. The story centers around a Journalist who is writing about the Arapaho and Cheyenne massacres in Colorado. Will they kill her before she is able to expose the bad guy? I am not telling...read the book. It is well worth the read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Skye | 1/24/2014

    " This book is a fictional account of a real controversy in Denver a couple of years ago and involves a project I helped stop for a client. It's interesting to read the author's observations and (seriously) dramatized version of events with which I had first hand experience. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cindy S | 1/8/2014

    " A fast paced mystery with a likable heroine. With a controversial topic (casino) and a mix of Indian history, this story keeps you turning the pages. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ron | 1/3/2014

    " A very good and easy reading that keeps you involved to the end. Coel at her best. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Allison Zieger | 12/7/2013

    " This was a fun read especially because it takes place in the Denver metro area! It describes many local places and roads which help us natives get a better visual of things! The ending was good, but slightly abrupt! A fun, easy to read mystery! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Betty410 | 11/20/2013

    " Coel introduces a new character and the scene is Denver. Vicki makes a cameo appearance and the story follows the tribe's claim to a large piece of land near the airport on which a casino may be built. The intrigue is about who is behind the scheme and is attempting to kill our new heroine. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Susan | 11/13/2013

    " Pretty good crime novel with a little Native American lore thrown in. A journalist is being stalked by a serial killer for hire because of something she is writing. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Judith Mollner | 11/12/2013

    " This author's books, with Native American characters, are always excellent. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cyndee | 10/23/2013

    " Suspenseful but something missing. Certainly cannot compare with Tony Hillerman's masterful mysteries. Last one I read by Coel only got 2 stars from me. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ashley | 10/22/2013

    " I would say a good 3.5. A quick read, good story, keeps your turning pages to find out what happens next, but predictable and not a "deep" read... quick fun mystery. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Robin Hemmer | 4/12/2013

    " Even though I like reading books that take place around Denver I just could not get through this one. Very slow and repetitive. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sarah | 2/28/2013

    " really interesting and well-done twists and turns in the mystery, but sorry to see the gal becoming an alcoholic in the midst of her distress. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sherri Vigil | 12/31/2012

    " Native Denverite! Caught my attention enough to veer to a new character from this author. I really enjoy her books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sandy | 12/17/2012

    " Set in Denver and is not a story of the Reservation in Wyoming. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 June | 10/5/2012

    " I enjoyed this as much and even more than some of the Wind River mysteries. I found Catherine McLeod a very believeable and sympathetic character. I found a number of the ideas interesting - having your identity stripped away... I also did not know about the Sand Creek Massacre. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Barb | 8/10/2012

    " mystery much like tony hillerman's with a female viewpoint "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nancy Ellis | 4/6/2012

    " Enjoyable reading as Catherine McLeod delves into the history of the Sand Creek Massacre and land deals/frauds in the following century up to the present time. Colorful characters and interesting background info to go along with a good story. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Toni | 2/29/2012

    " New character; should be a good addition, but I miss Father John and Vicky Holden although Vicky makes a small appearence. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Janel | 2/17/2012

    " I enjoy learning something new, i.e. regional history, occupations, but this one was too heavy on history. All the details took away from the excitement of "who done it." I won't be reading anymore novels by this author. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ksafford | 1/12/2012

    " Good murder mystery set in and around Denver. Had never read anything by this author, but will certainly consider others by her. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ellen | 8/16/2011

    " Margaret Coel has another winner. This one takes place in Denver and involves an investigative reporter. Arapaho history takes center stage, specifically the Sand Creek Massacre. It seems that Coel is starting a new series, but I have to hope that Father John and Vicki are going to be back as well. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Phyllis | 7/12/2011

    " I didn't like this book as well as her series ones. "

    " The plot had many twists. It was a great read! I read longer than I should have at night just getting to a spot where the character got through a dangerous situation. "
