Listener Opinions

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

    " The Lost Bird is a terrific mystery and a sad story of the deaths of at least 15 Arapaho newborns on the Wind River Reservation in 1964. I have read a number of Coel's other mysteries and this is one of my favorites, though a very sad story. I hesitate to say more about the storyline which the next readers should discover themselves. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Crystal | 2/6/2014

    " Finally, a book that reflects accurately the true way of Native American life..... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Laura | 1/30/2014

    " Excellent mystery as well as learning of native american traditions. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Susan | 1/23/2014

    " IMNSHO the best of the series "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dorothy | 1/16/2014

    " I really enjoy mysteries and Indian culture. Margaret Coel mixes the two together in her books. She is similar to Tony Hillerman, but better, I think. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Judy | 1/13/2014

    " I have been a fan of Margaret Coel's books. This novel revealed a relationship adjustment which, in my opinion, was long overdue. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Peg | 11/11/2013

    " I think this was the best Margaret Coel I've read so far. Same characters (Vicky the lawyer, John the priest) but an intriguing mystery about a murdered priest, hostile race relations, environmental degradation and a possibly conspiracy in black market baby-trafficking/adoptions decades before. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Betty410 | 10/26/2013

    " I'm glad Nancy recommended Coel. This the mystery of the murdered priest and nurse and all the sick children's deaths. It all comes together in a harrowing climax. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gwyn | 10/16/2013

    " A great mystery involving Arapaho lawyer Vicky Holden and Father John in a murder of another priest at St. Francis Mission. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Csillitoe | 10/10/2013

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jehret | 10/10/2013

    " Excellent story... In this adventure involving Arapaho attorney Vicky Holden and her friend and confidant Father John O'Malley, mysteries of the past bring shocking events into the present --with far reaching consequences for the future of the people. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Linda Branham Greenwell | 9/16/2013

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Allison | 8/23/2011

    " I read this for my mystery book group. I have read most of Coel's books and I really enjoy the relationship between Father John and Vicky Holden. Coel does a ton of research for each of her books and you can tell when you read about the history and events surrounding the Wind River Reservation. "
