Along with this blessing, there seems to be a lot of trouble surrounding the ranch, reservation and nearby highways. Someone has been taking shots at cowboys on the highway but when Dennis Carey, owner of the Broken Buffalo ranch ends up being a victim of this, his wife Sheila has to take on the responsibility for the ranch as well as the white buffalo calf. Although Sheila is a tough woman she still seems to be coming apart. Soon a local Arapaho lawyer, Vicki Holden and a mission priest, Father John find links between missing ranch hands and the shots taken at vehicles on the highway.
After some digging and asking to many questions they find that all the trouble they have been having in their small but fragile community can be led back to one place, the one place that is now serving as the communities centre, the Broken Buffalo ranch.
I really enjoyed this story, I loved how you were given multiple story lines and they soon started to converge on each other. This is the first Wind River Mystery I have read. I know there has been quite a few books written before and sometimes I can feel reluctant to start a series so late in its inception due to all the history formed with the story and characters but Ms. Coel did a great job of reintroducing her characters, it's a book that could be read as a stand alone and you wouldn't feel lost by all the history that is built up.
Father John and Vicki Holden, the two main characters of the book are good wholesome people. We need more of them in our world. I enjoyed reading about them and how much they cared and what they did for the community around them. I look forward to reading the next book in the series, The Man Who Fell From The Sky. Please look for my review tomorrow.
