Just happened to find this author, the first book of a series about a investigative journalist, mostly about Indian history but makes a good story.

Being the first book I can't give it more than a 3 star rating and that's because it has way way too much 'running' in it, I mean there are just pages and pages that is nothing but description of how she is running from her killer, no that's not a spoiler I didn't say anything about the story.

About 3/4 into the book I had to skip and skim just to finally get to the reason she was wanted killed. It has a lot of history in it and some of it I just passed over, not that it wasn't interesting but just overdone and some of it kind of boring.

I didn't like the ending, I don't know if it just ends that way or if you have to get book 2 in the series to find out the ending of book 1, I hope not but I didn't like the ending at all.

I'll try more in this series.

Catherine Mc Leod is an investigative reporter in Denver doing a story on the suit filed by the Arapahoe and Cheyenne tribes to recover twenty seven million acres of their ancestral lands. Suddenly she is the target of an assassin who breaks into her house and shoots one of her friends. Catherine can not figure out what she has reported or what she may know that has gotten someone upset enough to kill her. As she probes further she discovers a conspiracy that goes back to the time of the Sand Creek massacre and also the truth of her own background. The assassin is relentless and Catherine fights to save her life and report the shocking details of a terrible betrayal by someone close to her. This is a new character for Margaret Coel that shows potential to be as interesting as Vicky Holden and Father John from her wonderful Wind River Reservation series. A page turner with many interesting facts about the terrible massacre at Sand Creek.

Fun, fast read. I don't usually read mysteries but really enjoyed this one. Especially good if you are from the Denver area and know the locations talked about.
