    " Pretty good read -- easy, quick, entertaining. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Beth | 2/6/2014

    " Hillerman readalike? Mystery set on the Arapahoe reservation. Very informative for those interested in the Native American way of life. Mystery, kind of light and predictable. "

    " The Arapaho are buying back part of their tribal lands when a tribal leader who opposses the deal is murdered. As Father John O'Malley tries to clear the man's nephew of the murder, other questionable actions come to light. Oil plays a part in what is happening as does land title. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marlene | 1/31/2014

    " Despite the plethora really trite/painful sentences in the first half, I kept going. It was a quick read and I ended up enjoying it. I'll continue to read more of this series. "

    " This is the first in the Father John and Vicky Holden mysteries. Father John was supposed to met tribal chairman Harvey Castle at the Pow Wow instead he finds him dead in his teepee stabbed in the heart. When Harvey's nephew Anthony is suspected of the murder Father John O'Malley, S.J., pastor of St. Francis Mission, and Vicky Holden, Arapaho attorney, do not believe that Anthony Castle - one of the most promising young people on the reservation - is capable of murder. Together they set out to find the real criminal and clear Anthony's name. The trail that Father John and Vicky follow winds across the high plains of the Wind River Reservation into Arapaho homes and community centers and the fraud-infested world of Indian oil and land deals. Eventually it leads to the past - the Old Time - when the Arapahos were forced to leave their homes on the central plains and relocate on the reservation. It is through the horrendous crimes committed then that Father John and Vicky discover the motive for the murder of the tribal chairman a century later. But as they close in on the killer, will they become the next targets. This was a great read though as I continue to learn of the atrocities that we committed on the American Naive people continues to appall me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Colleen Moore | 1/28/2014

    " I have read the whole Wind River Mystery series because I love the sense of place and culture that Coel brings to the stories. As an annual visitor to the Wind River Reservation, I have learned a lot of the history of the rez from these books. Coel spins good stories, but her skill is in bringing the past and present together for the reader in an engaging way. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Debbie | 1/27/2014

    " Father John is caught up in murder on the Arapaho reservation "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Julie | 1/24/2014

    " Interesting story with many inclusions of Arapaho culture. Most inviting understanding of history and hardships along with successes in human relationships and challenges. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Susan Coley | 1/19/2014

    " I just discovered this series and have enjoyed the books. The Arapaho culture is interesting and many of the details are geographically and culturally accurate. i have been listening to the audio version. It doesn't have the slick recording that many other books have. A male reader might be better. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anne | 1/13/2014

    " Another great western mystery series. Interesting characters and dilemmas. Read in order if you can. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carol | 1/10/2014

    " I enjoy books about indians and mysteries and this book contained both! It was set on the Wind River Reservation in Wyoming. The story uncovers the truth about the chairman of the tribal council murder who really did and the really interesting part why. I'll definitely read the next in the series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Samantha | 1/8/2014

    " Good mystery with a nice added element of Arapaho vs Catholic vs Mainstream America culture. A fun read for a weekend away. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kt Thames | 1/6/2014

    " Enjoyable mystery. The story takes place on a Wyoming Indian reservation. While the setting may remind you of a Hillerman book, Coel's point of view is different enough so that you don't feel like you're reading a Hillerman imitator. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 April | 12/4/2013

    " First time reading this author, but not the last. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Teresa | 11/28/2013

    " Read this for my book club at church. I really enjoyed it and I am looking forward to discussing it tomorrow night. I haven't read a mystery in a long time so this was a good intro back into the genre "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jen | 10/25/2013

    " This was a good book! It was an interesting insight into reservation life today. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Barbara Townsend | 10/22/2013

    " The Eagle Catcher is one reason why I adore Margaret Coel's Wind River Mystery series. Fast action, vivid imagery, and endearing characters. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Adrienne | 10/5/2013

    " It was pleasant to be back in Indian territory, although I'm not yet as fond of these characters as I was with Tony Hillerman's. I guessed the culprit early on and never found a reason to change my guess. I'll try a few more to see if her style and characters grow on me. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Trish | 8/15/2013

    " Took my a little while to get used to the slightly odd pairing of the two main characters - a Catholic priest and a female Native American lawyer - but as the book progresses it works reasonably well. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amy | 6/28/2013

    " Nice to find an author with lots of books in a series! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Barb Edwards | 6/8/2013

    " Tony Hillerman recommends it. What more can I say? Great characters with hints given about their pasts, want to read more about them. Didn't waste time getting to the murder and some of it was easy to figure out but with surprises. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Linda Volk | 4/9/2013

    " I loved the first book in this series. I enjoy murder mysteries and this brought the added element of life on the reservation. I look forward the reading the entire series. Kudos to Margaret Coel for showcasing the American Indians. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 June | 3/25/2013

    " I really enjoyed the main characters in this book. The portrayal of Arapaho and Catholic culture and the sympathetic treatment of alcoholics make for interesting reading. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lynette Hall | 3/1/2013

    " Southwest mystery. Good story "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joe O'c | 11/18/2012

    " Excellent; Continuing characters: Father O'Malley and Vicki Holden; priest and attorney work to prove that a young Indian did not kill his uncle and another council elder on the reservation "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kim | 9/10/2012

    " I am a mystery lover, but this author needs a few more novels under her belt before I will read her again. You can tell she's a novice. Her work is amateurish. She does have promise, though. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Betty410 | 9/4/2011

    " The first in a series about the Arapahoe Indians in Wyoming's Wind River Valley reservation. The poetic descriptions by the author set this apart from Tony Hillerman's stlye. The charachers of a Jesuit Priest and an Arapahoe femaly lawyer to solve the mystery are refreshing. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 MJ | 7/19/2011

    " Liked it well-enough to go for the second in series. "
