Klappentext The regalia worn by Arapaho Chief Black Heart in Buffalo Bill's Wild West more than 120 years ago have disappeared en route to collector Trevor Pratt. Arapaho attorney Vicki Holden and Father John O'Malley suspect Trevor knows more about the theft than he's tellingNa suspicion that's confirmed when they find him murdered in his home. 1 The pickup rumbling past the administration building sent a tremor through the old walls. Father John O'Malley set his pen down and pushed the notes he'd been making into a neat stack. Topics for next month's sermons, ideas for the men's club he'd started this fall, agenda for the social committee meeting this week. Five parishioners in the hospital, six new mothers who needed help with diapers, blankets, and baby food, a dozen elders who might run short of food this winter. Plus notes he'd written on the budget, never his strong point. What was it the provincial said? He ran St. Francis Mission on a hope and a prayer? Some truth in it. His business plan was to make lists of what the mission needed and pray for miracles. The donations always arrived, checks for five, ten, even a hundred dollars from people he had never heard of.

Still a surprise, when he thought about it. A Boston Irishman, a Jesuit priest on the fast track to an academic career teaching American history at Boston College or Marquette University, at home in the middle of Wyoming on an Indian reservation with a Plains Indian tribe he had only read about in the footnotes of history texts. One day he would be assigned somewhere else, but he was here today. The driver's door swung open just as he reached the pickup in front of the old gray stone building, the mission school once. The school had closed decades ago, with not enough Jesuits or money to keep it going. A few years ago he had turned the building into a museum of Arapaho history and culture. The wind whistled in the banner stretched over the front porch. Printed in black on a red background were the words: Arapaho Artifacts from Buffalo Bill's Wild West. September 21 to January 10.
