The Girl with Braided Hair

Margaret Coel, Author . Berkley Prime Crime $23.95 (293p) ISBN 978-0-425-21712-2

Coel’s 13th Wind River mystery (after 2006’s The Drowning Man ) is far more engaging than its bland title might suggest. The discovery of skeletal remains still bearing a long dark braid of hair opens deep wounds among the Native Americans who live on Wyoming’s Wind River reservation. Arapaho attorney Vicky Holden’s efforts to identify the woman, apparently a murder victim, cause tension with her love interest and law partner, Adam Lone Eagle, driving her to enlist the aid of their friend Fr. John O’Malley. A rash of threats and the murder of a woman Vicky questioned confirms her suspicions that members of a 1970s activist group, the American Indian Movement, are still on the rez and somehow involved in all the happenings. Bringing her trademark western flair to nonstop action, Coel keeps danger hanging over Vicky’s head as she follows a trail of clues to their startling conclusion. (Sept.)
