- from The Rap Sheet: Pierce's Picks for September/October 2003 by J. Kingston Pierce

SILVER LIES (Poisoned Pen Press), by Ann Parker. Leadville, Colorado, could be a violent place back in 1879, when local silver mining was in operation. So the demise of precious-metals assayer "Honest" Joe Rose doesn't strike most residents as especially odd. However, saloon owner Inez Stannert can't help wondering why the happily married decedent had in his pocket an admission token to a Denver brothel. Asked by Rose's widow to help her settle the assayer's affairs, Stannert discovers phony greenbacks and a blackmail scheme that might have contributed to Rose's death -- if he wasn't killed for more personal reasons.
