Overview

The last time anyone in Cottonwood County, Wyoming saw Sheriff’s Deputy Foster Redus, he was bloody, cussing, and driving his pimped-out pickup into the November darkness.

Banished to a small-town Wyoming news station to fulfill the remainder of her contract, Elizabeth “E.M.” Danniher is trying to put her messy divorce behind her and make the transition from investigating high profile crimes to investigating faulty toasters. When a young girl begs for E.M.’s help in proving her father innocent of a murder, E.M. finds herself back on the crime beat and in the crosshairs of a killer.

Arrested for the murder and released for insufficient evidence, rancher Thomas David Burrell is living a nightmare. Without a body or a crime scene, he’s got no way to prove his innocence. His ex-wife has refused to let his daughter visit. The entire county still suspects him of the crime.

E.M. may be his only hope. Unfortunately, going “Live at Five” with the truth may see her dead before eleven.

Patricia McLinn, after spending twenty-plus years as an editor for the Washington Post, now writes full-time. Her books have topped bestseller lists, including the USA Today Bestseller List, and been translated into more than twenty languages.

    Good, easy read.

    McLinn always does a great job developing characters you want to like, and I was pleased to meet EM Danniher. Told from Danniher's point of view, the story provided interesting and often humorous insight into the harried life of a journalist. Throw in a couple of possible love interests, a phantom dog, and a cast of small-town caracatures, and you have a fun read!

    I liked Sign Off by Patricia McLinn.  Ms. McLinn has written a solid, complex story with characters that have depth
    and complexity of their own. The big city girl reporter exiled to the small town in Wyoming is just the jump off to this
    intriguing tales of work politics, corruption, and love of a child for her father. EM Danniher is a wonderful protagonist
     who has amusing talks with herself while picking up her divorced battled self and doing what she does best; investigating.
     I loved how the sport caster, Mike Paycik, got involved with the investigation. That was just one of several little details
     I though made this story so interesting. In some ways, it reminded me of the Agatha Christie’s stories I read many,
     many years ago. Not too dark and the romance is barely there but the suspense is in spades. Truly a fine read.

    A page-turner
    Started a bit slowly, but quickly became a page-turner that kept me up well past my bedtime. Just the kind of heroine I like: smart, funny, and not too perfect. Having personal experience with both small-town western life, and small-town tv news stations, I was intrigued to read a story like this and see how it compared to my own experiences, and was not disappointed. An interesting mystery, likeable characters, and a tale well-told; highly recommended.

    Patricia McLinn in her newest series: Caught Dead in Wyoming has captured the essence of a rural town in the boondocks of that state. The plot is interestingly different, the characters have a 'real' feel to them. I like everything about this book. The fast pace, the 'no holds barred' conversations, the up-front revelations of what is happening. There are many stories out there, but the

    trick is in the telling...the expertise of the teller...the inherent pulse beat of a truly professional writer and that is what we have here.

    The unwinding (tick-tock) of the plot is done in such a way as to make the reader feel as though they themselves are right there and McLinn serves us well in that it is not a rushed conclusion; all our questions are answered and the case is wrapped up with style and acuity.

    What we have here is a clear case of writing brilliance and as Book 1 in this new series, I predict a home run for P. A. McLinn and I will follow the game every step of the way
    .

    Review:

    "Sign Off" by P.A. McLinn was a good mystery and the first in a new series by this author. Being a former reporter the author really knows the in and outs of hunting for a story and you will find her stories very interesting and engaging. This novel really held on the the mystery until the very end of the read where you will be kept guessing making this a 'Hallmark' of a good mystery from Sherman, WY. There were several characters in "Sign Off" but one that stood out for me was E.M. Danniher (Elizabeth) sold the show...for she was a wonderful ...being so "smart, witty, dedicated to the truth and sardonic." Now, what was "Sign Off" about... we find Elizabeth Danniher with Mike Paycik(another reporter) are looking into the disappearance of Deputy Foster Redus...Where was he when he disappeared? Was foul play in this picture? This is where I will say you must pick up "Sign Off" to see what all comes out of the "investigation that exposes corruption, dirty politics, and secrets that might drive a person to kill to keep them hidden." Be prepared for lots of twist and turns so say tuned because it call comes out in the end.

    "Sign Off" was not only a entertaining story with a good storyline and group of well developed characters but a story with a good intriguing mystery and if that is what you are looking for I would recommend this book to you.
