Overview

After spending twenty years hunting and bringing to justice devious, and deliberate murderers with the Criminal Investigation Division of the Army, Major Lynne Fhaolain had decided to retire to the high, quiet mountains in Colorado. Early retirement and the unexpected death of her partner leave Lynne trying to hang on and build a new life by moving to Leadville, Colorado. She wants to stay busy and focused on the opening of a small bookshop and getting her secondary career as a travel book writer off to a running start. As she makes her way to her new home in the old mining town, a killer emerges from the community to prey on unsuspecting tourists and locals alike. Befriended by two old town cronies, Lynne finds herself privy to more information about the murders than she wanted to know. Against her better judgment, Lynne finds herself teased and taunted by the mystery posed as the force of old habits return. Unfortunately, the murderer notices Lynne’s habits of curiosity. Murder in Cloud City goes into high gear as hunter and hunted circle in for the kill.

    Writing What I Know

    Janet McClellan is a former police chief with over twenty-five years of investigative experience and currently a college professor of criminal justice writes what she knows. Murder in Cloud City, although her first book with iUniverse, it is her sixth published book. Murder in Cloud City continues with her penchant for murder but provides an interesting and exciting break with her previous approach by introducing the unique and exciting person in the character of Major Lynne Fhaolain. Lynne is newly retired from the Army¿s Criminal Investigation Division and has recently survived the tragedy of her partner¿s death. Caught between the pain of the past and an uncertainty of the future, Lynne decides to move to Leadville, Colorado, open a bookstore and write travel books. Unfortunately for Lynne the otherwise quiet town of Leadville, nestled in the clouds of the Rockies has been the site of gruesome murders. Unable to tame her curiosity and at the urging of two old town cronies, Lynne searches for clues to the killers¿ identity. As a frequent visitor to Colorado in general and Leadville, in particular I have attempted to fairly portray the climate, landscape and possibilities of mystery represented in the area. The story unfolds in the chill of early spring of the mountains and winds its way through the opening of high summer in the Rockies. The characters, central and supportive are drawn full-bodied lending depth and tautness to the unfolding story. Police procedure, process, and practical or problematical issues are lucidly presented lending both a sense of realism and frustration faced by investigators. In this fast paced thriller, the hunter becomes the prey and the circle narrows in a desperate game of cat and mouse. Murder in Cloud City is the first of the Lynne Fhaolain mystery series.
