New York Times bestselling author Margaret Coel returns to Wind River with Arapaho attorney Vicky Holden and Father John O’Malley investigating a lethal link between legendary outlaw Butch Cassidy and a present-day murder… When Robert Walking Bear’s body is found in the Wind River mountains, his death appears to be accidental—except for the fact that he had been hunting for Butch Cassidy’s buried loot with a map he had gotten from his grandfather, a map believed to have been drawn by the leader of the Hole in the Wall gang himself. It isn’t long before rumors circulate that Robert was murdered by his own cousins to get the map and find the treasure themselves. Despite there being no evidence of foul play, the gossip gains credibility when both Vicky and Father John are contacted by an anonymous Arapaho claiming to have witnessed Robert’s killing. When one of Robert’s cousins falls prey to another deadly accident, Vicky and Father John are convinced the victim is the witness who confided in them, and the hunt for the killer is on in earnest—before more die in search of Cassidy’s cache.

Ο αστυνόμος Στίβεν Μόραν περίμενε καιρό να του δοθεί η ευκαιρία να περάσει το κατώφλι του Τμήματος Ανθρωποκτονιών του Δουβλίνου και η επιθυμία του γίνεται πραγματικότητα όταν ένα πρωί η δεκαεξάχρονη Χόλι Μακέι τού φέρνει αυτή τη φωτογραφία. Τη βρήκε αναρτημένη στον Τόπο των Μυστικών, έναν πίνακα όπου τα κορίτσια του ιδιωτικού σχολείου Σεντ Κίλντα μπορούν να αναρτήσουν ανώνυμα τα μυστικά τους. Συνήθως πρόκειται για κουτσομπολιά και κακεντρεχή σχόλια, αλλά σήμερα κάποιος τον χρησιμοποίησε για να πυροδοτήσει εκ νέου την έρευνα για τη δολοφονία του όμορφου και δημοφιλούς Κρις Χάρπερ. Ο Στίβεν θα ενώσει τις δυνάμεις του με τη σκληροτράχηλη αστυνόμο Αντουανέτ Κόνγουεϊ για να βρει τη λύση. Όλα τα στοιχεία οδηγούν τους δύο ντετέκτιβ στην κλίκα της Χόλι και στην κλίκα των αντίζηλών τους καθώς και σε έναν περίπλοκο ιστό σχέσεων και μυστικών που δένουν όλα αυτά τα κορίτσια με τον νεκρό Κρις Χάρπερ. Σε κάθε τους βήμα η πίεση αυξάνεται. Ο κόσμος των έφηβων αυτών κοριτσιών θα αποδειχθεί πολύ πιο επικίνδυνος απ’ ό,τι είχαν ποτέ φανταστεί οι δύο αστυνομικοί…

A Legend Comes To Life The central character in this historical novel is a well educated Indian renegade who also has the blood of both black and white in his veins. His notable size, 68-1/2 tall, general countenance and certain exploits form the orienting track of this story gleaned from books on Idaho history and newspaper accounts of more than 120 years ago. Apparently he did exist. But legend has colored his life almost to Paul Bunyan extremes. This account has been written to tint the character in more believable terms. Starr Wilkinson was born in 1837 near Tahlequah, out in the India Territory (Oklahoma). He was very quiet, even introverted. So the thread that is woven through this story of his life is one of trouble stemming from an inability to communicate well with others. Starr served on the crew of a Mississippi riverboat for several years. He then accompanied a family on the road to Oregon and, as time passed, fell in love with the daughter. This led to the slaying of a young rival by Wilkinson. He then deserted the wagon train and of necessity joined a renegade Indian band that wandered the Snake River country. Before long he became the leader and, largely because of his size, was notorious throughout the area. Here, he again took on his schooldays name of Bigfoot. After years of eluding pursuers and avoiding traps, he was killed via ambush in July, 1868. This story of his life is in accord with his own lengthy statement made as he lay dying on a dry, sage covered hillside near the Snake River. An eyewitness account of that event and Bigfoots last words was published several years later in the Tri-Weekly Statesman, the Boise City newspaper in those days. Legend. . .fable. . . myth. . . fact. . . or history liberally embellished? Take your choice.
