When the Arapaho tribal chairman is found murdered in his tepee at the Ethete powwow, the evidence points to the chairman's nephew, Anthony Castle. In Margaret Coel's latest Wind River Reservation mystery, Arapaho attorney Vicky Holden and Father John O'Malley find themselves immersed in the dark underbelly of the illegal market for Indian relics.

When the Arapaho tribal chairman is found murdered in his tepee at the Ethete powwow, the evidence points to the chairman's nephew, Anthony Castle. But Father John O'Malley, pastor of St. Francis Mission, and Vicky Holden, the Arapaho lawyer, do not believe the young man capable of murder. Together they set out to find the real murderer 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 into the fraud-infested world of Indian oil and land deals. Eventually it leads to the past—the Old Time—when the Arapahos were forced from their homes on the Great Plains and sent to the reservation. There in the Old Time, Father John and Vicky discover a crime so heinous that someone was willing to commit murder more than a hundred years later to keep it hidden. As they close in a killer who does not hesitate to kill again, they discover they have become the next targets... Critics have praised The Eagle Catcher as a tightly crafted mystery that blends Native American culture and history with contemporary issues and fast-paced action. It introduced two intelligent, compassionate sleuths: Father John O'Malley, S.J., a history scholar and recovering alcoholic, exiled to an Indian mission on the Great Plains, and Vicky Holden, an attorney who, after ten years in the outside world, has returned to the reservation to help her people.

I happened upon through one of my daily Kindle e-mails, and being a huge fan of Tony Hillerman, I thought it might be interesting. Margaret Coel does a great job painting the culture of the Arapaho People and the reservation they call home, and the mystery surrounding the deaths of two tribal leaders was intriguing enough to keep me reading. Admittedly, I did find Father John to be a bit clinched, and perhaps too flawed - a recovering alcoholic Irish Catholic priest from Boston who is also clearly attracted to the Arapaho lawyer, Vicky (herself a victim of domestic abuse), and seldom dresses like a priest except when absolutely necessary. Her other characters are somewhat formulary as well: The rich bigoted rancher with political ambitions; as mentioned before, the Native lawyer, divorced from her abusive husband and estranged from her children; the brilliant and ambitious Arapaho college student as the prime murder suspect; a clueless FBI agent. But I did enjoy this book enough to give the second one a try.

After reading one of her later books, I decided to go back to the beginning of this series and read Coel's debut novel. If you enjoy reading Tony or Anne Hillerman or C.J. Box you will enjoy Margaret Coel's Wind River series set on the Wind River Reservation in contemporary Wyoming.

Father John O'Malley is a Jesuit priest on the reservation working with the Arapaho and Shoshone tribes at the mission. When Father John discovers his friend and tribal councilman murdered in his teepee as the powwow is beginning, he becomes involved in helping solve his friend's murder. The primary suspect according to the FBI agent from Lander is one of the reservation's most promising young men, Anthony. Vicki Holden is an attorney working in Lander hoping to help her Arapahoe tribesmen. She becomes Anthony's attorney. Many other factors, twists and turns leave the reader guessing and hypothesizing as to the motive and murderer.

Coel brings the beauty of the American West and the culture of the Arapahoe tribe to the reader in an entertaining way. You will learn from this book and you will reflect on the history of European settlers and the Native American tribes of this diverse continent.

This is a quick read and an enjoyable read. Check it out!

This is the first book I have read by this author. I have read all of TonyHillerman’s books and R. Allen Chappell’s Navajo mystery series – all of which I have loved, and I am always looking for books in the same vein.

I liked Eagle Catcher very much. It is a little “black and white” in terms of good characters and bad characters, which is not particularly unusual, but the characters are well developed and you grow fond of the heroes. The story develops well and keeps the reader is suspense for the most part.

Any complaints I have about the book are pretty minor. I thought it was unrealistic to have Vicki the lawyer tell her client Anthony to tell all he knew to the authorities who were ready to question him. She had just showed up and had not even talked with him herself. I also thought she was a little quick to assume his innocence given the case against him.

But I thoroughly enjoyed the book and look forward to reading more of the series.

This is the first book in Margaret Coel's 'Wind River" series. It is an excellent look at another culture within the general US culture. It goes past he usual 'why?' questions to introduce us to a society within our society, one of many Native American societies which had a profound effect on making Americans different from their European ancestors. In this one, we see what the eagle means to these Native Americans of the Northern plains of what we tend to think of as The West. And why the eagle could be such a powerful symbol to those tribes- and to us. The North American Native Americans are definitely part of our society and its thinking. Here is an opportuinty to look at it thru their Point of View and Life.
There is a sexual tension/ attraction between Vicki and Father John. One which does not cross the line between possibility and fact.
One thing I really like about Margaret Coel's characters is that they are never too good to be true; they are real and flawed people. Perfection is predictable, even boring. Ms Coel's characters are never boring.

This was the beginning of the series on Father John O'Malley and a lawyer, Vicki Holden, who live in and work with the people on an Arapaho reservation. It was a pretty good beginning mystery, dealing with how original settlers and others involved in dealing with Native Americans often lied and cheated these people. We still, as a nation haven't dealt rightly by all the Native Americans in the United States, and I think it is long past due. But though the book did well in descriptions and I thought the plot was fine, as other reviewers mentioned, the writing wasn't the best. I will see in reading others of these series, if the writing gets better as the author goes on.

I really enjoyed the information about the Arapaho nation. I'm not as familiar with their background as I am of other tribes. The use of imagery and the descriptions of the characters were pretty good. A good quick summer read.

This is the first book by this author that I have read. I was slower getting into it figuring out the overall storyline and the "who's who". Once I got into the rhythm of the book I was there.

I think it's a well written story supported by good editing. The characters are well defined and interesting.

A lot is put into painting a well defined picture of the landscape of the reservation and the people who live there, as well as what their lives are like.

It's a good read.
