Night of the White Buffalo by Margaret Coel, expected publication September 1, 2015; Berkley
"At Wind River Reservation, Arapaho attorney Vicky Holden and Father John O’Malley investigate a mystery overshadowed by a mythological miracle…
A mysterious penitent confesses to murder, and then flees the confessional. Two months later, rancher Dennis Carey is shot dead along Blue Sky Highway. With the tragic news comes an astonishing secret: the most sacred creature in Native American mythology, a white buffalo calf, was recently born on Carey’s ranch.
The miraculous animal draws pilgrims to the reservation, frustrating Vicky and Father John as they try to unravel Carey’s murder and the disappearances of three cowboys from his ranch.
It could be coincidence, but Vicky doesn’t believe in coincidences. And at the back of Father John’s mind is the voice from the man in the confessional. "(goodreads)
