About the Author

Mark Stevens is Senior Archivist at Berkshire Record Office, responsible for looking after the Broadmoor Asylum archives.


"Trapline is more than just an accurate description of the New West, it's also an engaging whodunit. And like all great mysteries, this one will have you guessing and flipping the pages until you reach the end." - Telluride Inside and Out

"Trapline is more than a mystery, it's a political thriller of sorts that resolves around the issue of illegal immigration ... Everything comes together in the end in a chilling tale set against the grandeur of the Colorado mountains." - The Denver Post

"Allison's third adventure (Buried by the Roan, 2011, etc.) combines a loving portrait of a beautiful area with an ugly, all-too-believable conspiracy that could have been ripped from today's headlines." - Kirkus Reviews

"Stevens relishes the opportunity to thoroughly discuss the topic of immigration in the US through his well-defined protagonist's world. While Allison Coil, a hunting guide, refrains from giving a perspective on gun control, the highly-charged subject matter stays at the forefront of the reader's mind as the two investigations build to their inevitable climax ... Readers will enjoy the fast-paced action." - Mystery Scene Magazine

"A well-executed and suspenseful narrative following the self-reliant outdoorswoman and intrepid journalist as they stay a step ahead of the police. The book is a thrilling read for fans of the genre, filled with twists, political intrigue and a dose of wilderness." - The Aspen Times

"This murder mystery has two things I love: a Western setting and two strong plots that coincide. Trapline by Mark Stevens also has two amateur sleuths who fit all of my criteria. They are strong characters who are competent in their fields, hunting guide and reporter, and as such they have license and the means to snoop ... Both are believable as they investigate the two cases and eventually come together to solve the larger puzzle. (Stevens) is as good at writing action sequences as he is when emotions are at work. Stevens has a clean style and keeps the plot moving in this, his third mystery in the Allison Coil series." - The Albuquerque Free Press
