Arapaho attorney Vicky Holden and her friend Father John O'Malley investigate the mysterious death of Ben Holden while dealing with James "Orlando" Sherwood and his followers, who are intent on resurrecting the old Shadow Dance religion.
"James Sherwood claims to have been to the shadow world and back. He claims to know the future. He also claims to have no connection to the disappearance of Dean Little Horse or the murder of Ben Holden ... Father John O'Malley has a lot to worry about. While his mission is in danger of losing its charter and a young man from his parish has disappeared, his old friend Vicky Holden finds out that her ex-husband was murdered--and that she is the prime suspect of the investigation. Father John is willing to do anything he can to clear her name. His hunch is that the murder and the disappearance are somehow connected to James Sherwood, whose followers call him Orlando. As Orlando, Sherwood has resurrected the old Shadow Dance religion, having his followers dance for days at a time for the promise of an Indian paradise. For Orlando and his followers, nothing must delay the coming of the New World. But to get the proof they need, Father John and Vicky must do more than follow Orlando's trail. They must learn his dance. And there's no telling what a man who believes himself to be a prophet might do when he feels threatened ..."--Publisher's description.
