The BookBitch

By Lesa Holstine

The second book in Parker’s Silver Rush mystery series is just as intriguing as the award-winning debut, Silver Lies. Inez Stannert, owner of the Silver Queen Saloon in Leadville, CO, is uneasy during the summer of 1880. The city is already in turmoil following a miners’ strike. Now, the railroad is coming to town, causing further disruptions. Lot jumpers, eager to make a profit on land, are even threatening the local hospital. When Inez’ friend, Susan, a photographer, witnesses an act of sabotage against the railroad, she’s knocked unconscious by an avalanche, and doesn’t remember exactly what she overheard. To make things worse, General Ulysses S. Grant is planning to arrive on the first train to Leadville. Only fifteen years after the Civil War, feelings are still stirred up in the community. Murder and intrigue are all wrapped up in the historical events of the time period, and Inez soon finds herself at the heart of it. Historical mystery fans will definitely learn about the 1870s and 1880s in this appealing series.
