Editorial Reviews


"Buchanan offers a murder mystery that is set during a formative time in Montana's history. It is an absorbing period, when the laws were unclear and so much rested on their creation and enforcement. ... (Daniel) Stark is a compelling, complicated hero, one of several finely drawn characters who bring the Old West to life." Kirkus Reviews
"...a smooth reading, fast-paced read you will work fast every day to get back to reading in the evening. ... The Ghost is fourth in a series that has garnered some awards attention and deserves more. Lots more." Jacqueline Lichtenberg, Amazon Vine Voice.
"...a masterful and suspenseful addition,... a fine historian as well as novelist ... (who) writes with power, grace, and courage..." Richard S. Wheeler

About the Author

Carol Buchanan writes historical Westerns about the Montana Vigilantes, men forced to make desperate decisions to survive when gold, greed, and a vacuum of law led to ruffians’ rule and a tolerance for murder. Her fascination with these beginnings of Montana's history started when she stood in the Hangman’s Building in Virginia City, Montana, and heard the ropes creak. With a PhD in English & History, she teaches Montana’s Vigilante History at Flathead Valley Community College in Northwest Montana. Her four-book series is The Vigilante Quartet: Book 1: God’s Thunderbolt: The Vigilantes of Montana won the 2009 Spur for Best First Novel from the Western Writers of America. Daniel Stark, a New York attorney, comes west to get enough gold to rescue his family from debt and disgrace. he finds gold, all right, but miners are plagued by robbers and murderers who terrorize the region. He joins the vigilantes and becomes their prosecutor as they rid the gold fields of terror Book 2: The Devil in the Bottle. The gold region is safe for travelers, and the Vigilantes have set up a People’s Court, but Joseph (Jack) Slade on his latest drunken binge flaunts the court’s rule. Dan fears that if Slade prevails, the criminals will be encouraged once again to terrorize people. Without a jail, the Vigilantes must decide how to uphold the court and the rule of law without hanging Slade, who has committed no capital crime. Book 3: Gold Under Ice is a 2011 Spur finalist. Dan Stark returns to New York, but he does not have enough gold to redeem his family. he turns to gold trading. When a friend is murdered, he discovers that his autocratic grandfather has schemed with a representative of the Bank of New York to steal his gold. Book 4: The Ghost at Beaverhead Rock. Throughout 1864, the Montana Vigilantes have ruled Alder Gulch, but as Montana Territory is organized, a new Chief Justice warms the Vigilantes: “No more midnight executions.” At the same time, Dan Stark, the Vigilante prosecutor, is accused of stabbing a man in the back in order to win his wife and his gold claim. If the true killer is not discovered, Dan could be tried for the crime, convicted by a jury, and hanged. If the court acquitted him, he could be tried and hanged by the Vigilante tribunal. Even as he vows to find the murderer and prove himself innocent, the ghost of a hanged man haunts him. Is it a vision of his fate to come? Is it retribution? Dan tells the apparition, I do not believe in ghosts.
