This novel, the newest in the widely acclaimed Wind River Mystery series, is a little different from its predecessors. While still featuring Vicki and Father John, the thrust of the book is well in the past: the late 19th century, to be exact, when Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Show toured Europe featuring various Indian groups, including Arapahos like Chief Black Heart. It appears that the regalia worn by the Chief went missing when the tour came to an end, only to be discovered when the building in which it was hidden was being demolished. The items were purchased by a local rancher and donated to the museum at the St. Francis mission. However, en route from Germany the shipment is hijacked, and Vicki and Father John, as usual, have to come to the rescue. The mystery includes the murder of the donor, who might have known more about the stolen goods. Complicating the investigation is a feud between two Arapaho families with lineage back to the principal players way back when. Intertwined in the tale are descriptions of what it is like living on a reservation, now and in the distant past, and the effect on the lives of Native Americans. The plot is well-presented, with the requisite suspense to keep the reader wondering what comes next. The real question, always present, is the relationship between Vicki and Father John and what, if anything, will ever develop. Recommended.

Again Father John and Vicky get to the heart of the mystery and solve it. Very interesting historical about Buffalo Bill and the Wild West shows, telling about how the Indians were treated. Will be interesting to see how Margaret Coel will go with Father John and Vicky's relationship. Just wait and see.

I enjoyed Buffalo Bill's Dead Now, especially with the twists and turns that occurred. Margaret Coel has a real knack for keeping her characters alive and interesting. Super story.

If you've read any of Margaret Coel's Wind River series you have to read this book. It adds even more reality, info and excitement to the other stories in the series. If you've never read any of them this book is just as good as any to get started with. Although it's a series you don't have to read them in any specific order. I know I didn't and never got lost in any of them as they all stand individually even though many characters remain the same. One thing I do think needs to have some kind of change of direction is the relationship between Vickie and Father John. It's starting to get old. I can't wait for the next book in either of her series to come out. Wish I could afford/find some of the books Margaret Coel has written. Some can't seem to be found and a few of them are only offered for $100.00. Sorry, but no matter how good a book is I'm not about to pay that kind of money to read it. Maybe if I was a collector but not just as a read. Try her books....they're awesome, you won't be disappointed!
