Mortal Music

A Silver Rush Mystery

2020 INDIES Winner
Bronze, Historical (Adult Fiction)

San Francisco music-store owner Inez Stannert has a past that doesn’t bear close inspection, including running a saloon in the wide-open silver boomtown of Leadville, Colorado. When prima donna Theia Carrington Drake hears Inez play and demands she replace her accompanist, Inez hesitates, then accepts—and trouble begins. “Impeccably detailed historical setting (San Francisco after the Gold Rush) with sharply drawn characters and a suspenseful story.” David Pitt – Booklist
