About the Author

Ann Parker, a science writer by day, is the author of the Silver Rush historical mystery series, the first book of which, Silver Lies, was the winner of the Willa Cather Award for Historical Fiction and the Colorado Gold Award for Best Mystery. She is a member of Mystery Writers of America and of Women Writing the West and resides with her family in the San Francisco Bay area.


"Set in 1881, Parker's exuberant sixth Silver Rush mystery brims with fascinating period details, flamboyant characters, and surprising plot twists." - Publishers Weekly
"Parker, whose grandparents lived in Leadville, has a real knack for making us feel as though we have been transported to another time and place, and her characters breathe life into the vividly evoked landscape. A fine entry in a series that deserves more attention.
" - Booklist
"The San Francisco setting is richly described, giving the reader a fascinating glimpse of the period. This is not a fast-paced story, but one that provides clues to the crimes committed, along with a surprising conclusion." - Historical Novel Society
"By far the best of the mysteries featuring Parker's clever heroine. In addition to its historical interest, it provides a more complex problem to solve and leaves open a future in which her crime solver works with a mysterious new partner." - Kirkus Reviews
