The victim's widow is already out for revenge. In the meantime, Father John's old friend Vicky Holden has just been hired as in-house counsel at the newly-opened Great Plains Casino. But trouble is brewing, as an angry group of protesters known as the Rangers is bent on proving the casino is a house of evil...and shutting it down for good.

But when Vicky stumbles across some troubling evidence, she's suddenly caught in a dangerous game--with her own life at stake...

This mystery stands alone, though is stronger if read in the context of the series. Father John, called to serve the Arapaho, and Vicky, an Arapaho lawyer, spend little time together, but are on the same wave length. In this case, both see the benefits, and problems, a new casino brings to the poverty stricken reservation. Vicky, and her friend, Lakota lawyer Adam, are asked to work for the casino, and hope to keep it "clean." She soon finds financial discrepancies, and that leads her into trouble. Facing it with her usual courage but uncertainty, she finds the truth. One of the stronger entries in the series.
