Editorial Reviews


5 Star Review

As I've read and reviewed previous books in theSeagate and Miner series I'm always struck by how good these characters are.Karen Seagate, a recovering alcoholic with lots of life experience (and morethan her share of past mistakes to live down) stands in perfect contrast to herpartner, Ryan Miner, a goody two-shoes, Mormon family man. They could easilyclash, but instead form a perfect partnership with their differences making theteam that much stronger. It seems I can't rave about them enough . . .
Markel has another winner on his hands.

From the Author

The Detectives Seagate and Miner Mystery series comprises six books:
  1. Big Sick Heart
  2. Deviations
  3. The Broken Saint
  4. Three-Ways
  5. Fractures
  6. The Reveal
Like the four previous books, Fractures is narrated by Detective Karen Seagate. She is 42, a recoveringalcoholic who is trying to figure out how to deal with her disease, aby-the-book chief, and a world that, in general, makes little sense. She wants to dislike her young partner, Ryan Miner, a cheerful Mormon with a wifeand 2.5 kids, but with this, as with most of her life goals, she fails.

I got the idea for Fractureswhen I saw a video of a disgruntled rancher who had leased his property to a fracking operation. The image of him igniting the methane that came out of his kitchen faucet stuck with me. Since I set my series in central Montana, I had to determine whether the Bakken oil fields extend into Montana. Luckily, they do.

The title of the book refers to hydraulic fracturing, of course, but because I like my titles to pull their weight, you can count on seeing some other fractures in the book.

Detective KarenSeagate remains foul-mouthed, cynical, rude, depressed, and insubordinate.She lies constantly and assumes that most of what people say is untrue.She expects nothing good to happen to her and is rarely surprised. She's too high-maintenance for most men and for all bosses. Really, therewould be no good reason for anyone to want to have anything to do withher--that is, if she were not extremely good at figuring out which liaris also a killer.

I want to thank the many readers of the previous four books in the series who have gotten in touch with me. I appreciate all your comments. And I hope you're willing to give Fractures a try.
