    " 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. "

    " 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. "

  • 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. "

    " 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. "

    " 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.
