Listener Opinions

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Crystal C | 2/19/2014

    " This was by far my least favorite book in the series -- everything about this book was clunky, from the dialogue to the plot line, to the unbelievable twists and turns that the murder investigation took. Because I have loved the previous books so much, I will pick up the next one to see if it is any better. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Helen | 2/18/2014

    " Sacajawea, battered women and murder "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mary | 2/11/2014

    " Margaret Coel's Wind River mysteries are excellent. A blend of Shoshone culture and history, the grit of an ex-alcoholic priest with his own demons, a mystery that needs solving and everyday life that keeps intruding. I highly recommend anything by Margaret Coel. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nancy | 1/26/2014

    " This is another of the Wind River series that pairs Fr. John O'Malley with Arapaho lawyer, VIcky Holden, to solve a murder. This one involves the death of two scholars, twenty years apart, who are on the trail of written memoirs supposedly dictated to an Indian agent's wife by Sacajawea of Lewis and Clark fame. The thread running through the mystery and the female character's lives is that of domestic abuse. Not my favorite in the series, but still a thoughtful page-turner. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Fredrick Danysh | 1/20/2014

    " After eight years with the Arapaho, Father O'Malley receives the long dreaded transfer orders away from the reservation. Meanwhile two historians researching a legend are murdered twenty years apart. Since Father O'Malley fouund the remains of the first, he becomes involved in the investigation. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Corien | 1/16/2014

    " Priester die vervangen wordt (niet heel blij mee), Historians and some journal. "

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

    " As always, a history lesson and a vivid sense of place with strong characters and a compelling mystery. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 joyce | 11/29/2013

    " If you like Tony Hillerman, you'll probably like Margaret Coel. Not as much about Native American beliefs, but more about Arapaho and Shoshone, in particular Sacajawea, history. Also delves into the cultural aspects of Native American society within the larger white American society. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chic | 11/16/2013

    " I found a new author, Margaret Coel, when I purchased tis book at a Library book sale. She has a slew of other books that I can't wait to read. Spirit Woman was beautifully written. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jeff Dickison | 10/2/2013

    " The best Vicky Holden & Father John mystery that I have read yet. Naturally, they're involved in a murder mystery. This time it is two historians who are killed while pursuing the rumored written history of Sacajawea. End of book marks a new beginning for Vicky. Recommended. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gwyn | 9/24/2013

    " Loved the mystery as written by M. Coel. A very good read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Csillitoe | 8/8/2013

    " Good , but the confrontation at the end reminded me a lot of one of the earlier mysteries. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Steve Howes | 7/21/2013

    " see Lost Bird review. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Carolyn | 2/6/2013

    " I love a good mystery, and this is one. Based on enough fact for the mystery to be compelling, the characters realistic, as is the love interest. I wish there were more books were like this. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Victoria | 6/21/2012

    " I like the locations, I like the history, but I'm tired of the old love and actually don't find the writing very fluid, just sort of conscientious. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Barbara | 4/17/2012

    " still good interesting idea on Sacajawea. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lynne | 3/23/2012

    " I liked the fact that it was tied to history of Lewis and Clark (Sacajawea). The book seemed much like Tony Hillerman without the interesting character and setting descriptions. Not sure if I will read more of Ms. Coel's mysteries. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bruce Snell | 12/29/2011

    " Pretty good story - although too similar to some of her other work to really be first rate. The history lessons about Sacajawea made up for any other weaknesses though, and worth a read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 George | 11/11/2011

    " #6 in the Arapaho Wind River Reservation mystery series set in Wyoming and featuring Father John O'Malley and Arapaho lawyer Vicky Holden. The story line revolves the abuse of women while dealing with murder and whether Sacajawea really lived and died on the reservation. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Cyndee | 11/1/2011

    " I did not enjoy this book as much as a previous one in this series. They are all written according to a formula, and maybe I just don't appreciate it. I do appreciate the information on American Indians "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Phil | 10/3/2011

    " Satisfying. Nicely done mystery. This my first foray into the escapades of this dynamic duo, a Jesuit priest at mission in Wyoming and his Arapaho side-kick, a woman who broke out of her tribal expectations and became a lawyer. Ms. Coel captures the atmosphere and relates vividly. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Annie | 10/1/2011

    " The characters and stories keep getting better. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carolyn J. | 3/29/2011

    " Wonderful sense of place (Wind River) and good blending of past and present mysteries. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joanne | 3/16/2011

    " listened to this book. Enjoyed it and will "read" another. Good insights into culture and history. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cindy | 9/28/2010

    " I enjoy this series that features an Arapaho lawyer and an Irish Catholic priest. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ann | 8/26/2010

    " Great story. I loved the silent movie theme with the Indians. I remember seeing Tim McCoy in movies when I was a child. And Father John and Vicky are great, as usual. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Margaret | 7/2/2010

    " The description of Indian life, both today and in the past, seemed accurate. The main characters are engaging and 3-dimensional. The mystery all made sense in the end. Great book "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Julie | 1/4/2010

    " I love how the author incorporates the culture and history with the present story. Great book! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jane | 12/13/2009

    " Love this series. Insight into Tim McCoy, Indians in the movies, and Actual Wind River history make this a real Winner. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Glenna | 11/10/2009

    " This is a series about a priest on an Indian reservation. In this book, a murder took place many years ago when the Indians were part of a silent movie in Hollywood. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 June | 11/9/2009

    " It was very interesting learning about Tim McCoy and native americans in film. I found the present day murder to not be as well developed or as engaging.

    Mystery, Native Americans "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mary | 11/8/2009

    " I always read the new Margaret Coel. This one meets the high standards she sets. A Wind River Mystery. "
