Synopses & Reviews
Sally Alder is a couple of ears past her wild youth as the hard-drinking, guitar playing, hell-raising singer known as Mustang Sally. But then she's grown with age, She's wiser and more coolheaded now, and, more important, Sally has learned how to keep a secret. It's a good thing, too, because she's going to need every advantage she's gained in order to handle the job she's just taken.
Imagine having to move from LA to Laramie to get a thrill.
A professor of history at UCLA, Sally has just been offered the hugely endowed and deliciously secretive Dunwoodie Distinguished Chair in American Women's History at the University of Wyoming. Job description: Move into the late Meg Dunwoodie's posh residence in Laramie (the only one of its kind) and, with sole proprietors of her papers, construct the definitive Meg Dunwoodie biography--without telling anyone anything about it.
In this debut of an exciting new mystery series, Professor Sally Alder leaves L.A. and drives home through the Rockies to Laramie. There she revisits the scenes of her misspent youth, finds a cache of priceless diamonds, and discovers secrets hidden deep within this richly imagined Wyoming town.
