Overview

While slogging away in the obituary section of her uncle’s San Francisco newspaper, Samantha chafes under the indignity of her unrealized potential. She is convinced that her future is that of a star reporter, if only she can get that one big break.

Then, she reads about the Yukon Gold Rush and the millions of dollars in gold dust passing through the hands of the famously upright North West Mounted Police. Her reporter’s instincts spring to life. Surely there is a chink in the armor of at least some of these staunch red-clad guardians. Surely somebody is skimming a little gold dust for himself and she’s just the reporter to sniff out the scandal. Soon she has included poor, bespeckled photographer Oscar Timits in her plan and they set off for Dawson City.

Once there, Sam runs headlong into Inspector Duncan McLeod, a fifteen year veteran of the Force. Duncan thinks he’s seen it all until he crosses paths with Sam and her wild scheme to sell very much alive miners professionally written obituaries, complete with photograph.

Unknown to him, the scandal of Samantha’s dreams is fomenting right under Duncan’s nose. Two miners who have lost their claims devise a cunning and dangerous scheme to steal a large amount of gold and frame Duncan for the crime. Now, Sam has her scandal and her story but does she have the courage to ruin the life and reputation of a good man, one that has come to love her deeply.

Meet the Author

Kathryn Imbriani's writing career started more than 20 years ago when she developed alternate plot lines and fresh dialogue for Walt Disney classics Snow White and Sleeping Beauty. In her own mind, that is. It was in self defense when her children played the movies over and over and over . . . Since that time she's written eleven novels, books on gardening and sewing and articles on a wide variety of topics that she enjoys immensely. Just as long as there are no singing dwarfs involved. She lives in Raleigh, NC with her husband, dogs, birds and spoiled squirrels.
