THE MAN WHO FELL FROM THE SKY is book 19 in the Wind River Reservation series and it's also the first book I have read in the series. And, as a newbie must I say that I had no problem whatsoever getting into the book. The only drawback is that there is a lot of history between Arapaho attorney Vicky Holden and Father John O'Malley. They have been through a lot of things since they met years ago. But, reading this book just made me interested in getting the previous books to get to know them better.

READ THE REST OF THE REVIEW OVER AT FRESH FICTION! ( )

A great blend of the past in the legend of money buried money by Butch Cassidy and a death on the Wind River Reservation. Although half way through the book I figured out who was responsible for the death, I enjoyed the story. ( )

More character development and more members of the reservation seen.Simple mystery though. ( )

As one dropping into this series in the middle, I enjoyed the main characters in the story, but felt the plot mostly served to give the characters reasons to interact pending major developments between some of the characters in future books. Oh, and with an excursion into legends around Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. The author dropped unsubtle warning signs about the bad guy almost from the moment of his first appearance in the story, and the outcome wasn't really ever in doubt, just how the plot would get the key characters into danger and then rescue them, and how long-dead Butch Cassidy would fit in. I did like the strong female lead, a Native American attorney recovering from a difficult marriage and building her career in rural Wyoming. ( )

The Man Who Fell From The Sky is the nineteenth book in the A Wind River Mystery series.

The series takes place on and around the Wind River Reservation and deals with the lives of Father John O’Malley and Vicky Holden, an Arapaho lawyer.

Coel does an excellent job of providing a very descriptive setting for her stories, much like an artist painting a landscape. The story is well plotted and wonderfully written. The stories provide an interesting look at life on a reservation and the interaction of the Indians and white people.

This book deals with Robert Running Bear, whose body is found in a lake on the reservation. Running Bear tried to spend every spare moment in the mountains searching for money Butch Cassidy had reportedly buried there, using a map that Cassidy had reportedly drawn. The police believe it was a suicide, but Vicky starts to investigate what might have happened and soon gets an anonymous tip from someone who claims to have been near the lake and saw him killed.

If you’ve not read any of these books, pick one up and give it try. Coel does a very good job of blending information from previous books into the current book, so one can start anywhere in the series.

Will be watching for the next book in this exciting series. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0425280306, Hardcover)

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.
