The Spider's Web by Margaret Coel
Once again, Coel has stirred up the issues that arise in the Native American communities. With this book, I found myself feeling sorry for the Elders. They watch their young people leave the reservation, and return, troubled, and in trouble. Along with Father John, they've seen too many of their young people murdered in recent years. Ned Windsong is the latest victim, caught up in problems that returned with him to the Wind River Reservation. And, those problems continue to spread. The story started with an unsettled atmosphere, and, unlike previous novels in the series, The Spider's Web ends with a feeling of foreboding. Let's hope the recent past doesn't come back to haunt Father John and Vicky.
