An old flame is back. Will Nickerson wants nothing to do with her after having been jilted in favor of a multimillionaire. But now Mr. Moneybags is dead. Killed when he lost control of his small plane and slammed into a mountain somewhere in western Montana. Was it murder? Did someone tamper with the plane? The now-wealthy young widow Alison insists that it was indeed murder and that none other than Will must help her investigate it. Does she simply want to clear her name, as many locals believe she did it herself? Or does she have an ulterior motive? Does she want to rekindle that old flame with Will? Or what? Out of the blue, the North Dakotan receives a check from her for $50K and reluctantly heads west for his first paid job as a private eye and by far his most dangerous assignment yet. Mystery Under Montana Skies is a complex whodunit packed with adventure, romance, suspense and a bit of humor now and then, with the ambiance of a modern day Western set against the breathtaking beauty of Big Sky
Country. The reader will see that the West is still very wild indeed.

About the Author

I am currently living in my home state of Ohio, but have spent considerable time in the western states, including having owned a North Dakota cattle ranch, which was a major inspiration for my first novel, Ranch Park. I have also traveled extensively in Montana; so of course I had to set a novel in Big Sky Country. Many authors are in love with their hometowns and write about the places they call home; however I find it much more fun to write about places where I have had great vacations. It makes writing a kind of virtual vacation for me. I like rural and outdoors settings best, so you'll find Will Nickerson doing his sleuthing in the company of small town folk, farmers and modern day cowboys. In addition to writing, I am a small businessman myself, like my fictional character Will Nickerson. I plan to get back into cattle ranching with the eventual goal of opening an agritourism operation, as well as writing more novels. I enjoy a wide variety of activities, including hiking, cycling, horseback riding, sailing, skiing, swimming, photography, reading, gourmet cooking, gardening, foreign language studies and travel. I have traveled extensively in the US and Canada and have visited Australia, New Zealand and six European countries. Mystery Under Montana Skies is the sixth volume in the Will Nickerson Mysteries series, following Ranch Park, It's A Place For Trees, Viking It Is, Let's Make It Merry Christmas and What's Up In Wyoming. I also have a ghost story, Mrs. Treaster's Bed & Breakfast, which is not a part of the series, but I have an idea for a sequel to it, so it could be the starting point for a new series in a different genre.
