Margaret Coel is the New York Times bestselling, award-winning author of the acclaimed novels featuring Father John O'Malley and Vicky Holden, as well as the Catherine McLeod Mystery series and several works of nonfiction. Originally a historian by trade, she is considered an expert on the Arapaho Indians. A native of Colorado, she resides in Boulder.
"In lesser hands, this tale of long-buried hatred, greed, and cowardice might falter, but Coel's mastery at blending the past and present, as well as the blurry lines between fact and fiction, make this a satisfying historical read." --Publishers Weekly "Another spellbinding story of Native American history set in modern times...Coel's characters are well developed, her descriptions, vivid and clear. The plot keeps the story moving quickly and there's a twist at the end readers may not see coming. As usual, Coel's dialogue is crisp and authentic and her experience as a historian and expert on Arapaho Indians shows." --Examiner.com
