Synopses & Reviews
In Land Sharks, two union organizers have disappeared and so Sage Adair begins a desperate search that takes him into the blackness of Portland's underground to confront mercenary shanghaiers, the pain of a lost friendship and his own fears.
"A riveting mystery.... Land Sharks is an exciting piece of historical fiction." Midwest Reviews
It's 1902 and two men have disappeared, sending Sage Adair on a desperate search that leads him into the stygian blackness of Portland's underground to confront murderous shanghaiers, a lost friendship, and his own dark fears.
The Sage Adair Mysteries are set in 1902 Portland, Oregon and the Pacific Northwest. Authentic and well-researched, these historical mysteries show a colorful and corrupt city full of complex and shady characters. Sage Adair is a secret operative who works on behalf of the growing labor movement, pursuing his mission into hobo jungles, lumber camps, seedy saloons, and the drawing rooms of the rich.
Using authentic historical details, the books show readers a different Portland--a time when houses of prostitution flourished, illegal votes bought judges, and employer opposition to unions took the form of murder. The reader follows Adair out of the seedy saloons and into Portland’s extensive underground.
