Overview

A rodeo producer dead in the bull pen. Accident or Murder?

From the deadly tip of the rodeo queen's tiara to toxic "agricultural byproducts" ground into the arena dust, TV reporter Elizabeth, E.M., Danniher receives a murderous introduction to the world of rodeo.

The exiled big-time TV journalist hasn't yet adjusted to her demotion to KWMT-TV, a tiny station in Sherman, Wyoming, where cattle ranches, cowboys, and the wide open range set the stage for their own unique brand of crime.

This time she's investigating the apparently accidental death-under the hooves of rodeo bulls-of a rodeo producer preparing for the region's biggest event-Sherman's annual Fourth of July Rodeo. When her station's egocentric anchorman bungles the story outrageously, Elizabeth and KWMT-TV colleague Michael Paycik start digging on their own.

Area rancher Thomas Burrell, whose interest in Elizabeth is more than casual, helps out with background on the rodeo and suspects-and there are plenty, because the victim had many enemies. But Tom has loyalties to some suspects as well as to the rodeo, so can he be trusted to help her lasso the truth no matter what?

Patricia McLinn spent more than 20 years as an editor at the Washington Post after stints as a sports writer (Rockford, Ill.) and assistant sports editor (Charlotte, N.C.). McLinn received BA and MSJ degrees from Northwestern University.

McLinn is the author of more than 25 published novels, past president of the international writers group Novelists, Inc., and instigator of AWritersWork.com. Her books-cited by reviewers for wit and vivid characterization-have topped bestseller lists and won numerous awards. McLinn has spoken about writing from Honolulu to Washington, D.C., including being a guest-speaker at the Smithsonian Institute.

    This is becoming a series I look forward to following

    Solid storytelling, interesting characters, intriguing mystery without being gory. This second book was as enjoyable as the first. I liked the mystery, as well as the revisiting of characters I am enjoying getting to know, particularly Diana, Aunt Gee, Mrs. Parens, Shadow the dog, and Wyoming's scariest little girl, Tamantha Burrell. I am not a fan of love triangle story-lines and am hoping this one gets wrapped up quickly. I am more interested in the mysteries than that part of the story, although I do like the characters of both Tom and Mike. I like the character development of Elizabeth as she puts her life back together after her divorce, despite the culture shock. I also feel that the reaction of rural westerners to perceived easterners' arrogance was spot-on. I am looking forward to reading the next book in this series and hope there are many more to come.
