The Spider's Web, by Margaret Coel

I love this series about Father John O'Malley and Vicky Holden on the Wind River reservation in Wyoming. This time, we have a very unstable young white woman who gets caught up in the midst of a burglary ring gone wrong. Vicky agrees to represent her so she doesn't get railroaded as an outsider on the rez, but in the meantime other people are much more likely to be guilty of everything from lying about what they know to murder.

I like the series because there's not one person who is perfect; everyone makes poor choices over the course of the series, all of the characters are flawed, and sometimes in pretty damaging ways. But there is a spirit of forgiveness and acceptance that runs through it. Nice.
