As always in this series you have strong characters and nasty villains. Ms Jeppsen knows her way around research and pacing, giving us a very fine tale of good versus evil set in the northwest. This is no cowboy and Indian novel. This is filled with dirty dealing and out-right murder. Mathew and his son Chance are brought in after a dear friend was attacked by mysterious strangers and the tale moves forward.
This fast paced and intense novel is a hallmark of this writer's style. She puts in deep research to make sure that the feel of the novel and the details are correct. If you haven't read the other four stories in this series, go, pick them up. You will be lucky enough to be dragged deep into a wild west different from the run of the mill and filled with characters that make you root for the good guys and boo/hiss the bad.
From the Author
Welcome to the fifth book in this highly-acclaimed western series! The story is moving forward in time now, taking place in 1908. This is the Wilcox and Son Detective Agency's second case file and the "bad guys" are worse than ever!
This was an interesting time period to research. American society, as a whole, is advancing rapidly~ there is electricity now, and phone-lines. Automobiles wind their way through horse-drawn wagons and buggies and, there are a lot more people... both good and bad!
I hope you enjoy this latest installment of the DEADMAN series and remember, if you haven't read the rest yet, go and find DEADMAN'S LAMENT, DEADMAN'S FURY, DEADMAN'S REVENGE and LUCKY CHANCE!
