Overview

The railroad is coming west, all the way to Leadville and its rich Rocky Mountain mines, not to mention millionaires. And who is coming to celebrate the arrival of the Denver&Rio Grande but Ulysses S. Grant, 18th President of the United States and former commander of the Union armies. Like other residents in the Colorado boom town this summer of 1880, Inez Stannert regards the news as mixed. With her business partnership in the Silver Queen Saloon shaky and the bonds of family tightening (her husband is still missing and her baby is still back East), Inez doesn’t need the lawlessness of Leadville to turn, once again, into murder. But Inez isn’t the only one with iron ties to the past. Some folks have wicked memories of the war, others a stake in the competing railroad lines. And Inez’s friend, photographer Susan Carothers, gets caught in the crossfire. . . .

Editorial Reviews

Booklist - Wes Lukowsky
".. This sequel to the critically acclaimed Silver Ties (2003) will not disappoint Parker's fans. The characters have depth, their motivations are subtle, and their pain very human. Add carefully researched and fascinating period detail, and one has a carefully crafted novel that will appeal to readers of mysteries, historical fiction, and genre westerns."

Meet the Author

Ann Parker’s award-winning Silver Rush mystery series features saloon-owner Inez Stannert in the 1880s silver boomtown of Leadville, Colorado. The series includes SILVER LIES, IRON TIES, LEADEN SKIES, and the upcoming MERCURY’S RISE. Ann’s ancestors include a Leadville blacksmith, a Colorado School of Mines professor, and a gandy dancer. Ann and her family live in the San Francisco Bay Area (although she’d really really love to move to Colorado), where she slings scientific and corporate verbiage by day to pay the bills and writes historical mysteries at night to satisfy her soul.
