If you read Girl With Braided Hair I'm sure you liked it, and that makes Blood Memory a must! This mystery is a stand-alone from Ms. Coel's usual series of tales but she hasn't deserted the Native American theme. Catherine McLeod is an investigative reporter. She's working hard on a story about the Arapaho and Cheyenne tribes filing to reclaim twenty-seven million acres of their ancestral land. The elders agreed to speak with her because they consider her one of them. Is her pursuit of this story because she's bent on the truth getting out so the public is aware or does the betrayal at Sand Creek touch something in the Arapaho blood that runs through her veins? And why is someone trying to kill her? Can it be the story -- or is it the serial rapist they are trying to catch? The motive will surprise you and the documents and tales form long ago will touch your heart. The will also make you think!
