After more than 120 years, the regalia worn by Arapaho Chief Black Heart in Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show were supposed to be returned to his people. But the cartons containing the relics were empty when they arrived at the Arapaho museum. Rancher and Indian artifact collector Trevor Pratt had them shipped from Germany and believes thieves must have stolen them en route.

Vicki and Father John suspect Trevor knows more about the theft than he's telling a suspicion that's confirmed when they witness a car speeding from his home and he's found murdered inside. To find the killer, they must first uncover the truth about a blood feud between two Arapaho families and the original theft of Black Heart's possessions dating back more than a century
