About the Author

Ann Parker is the author of the award-winning Silver Rush historical mystery series set in 1880s, featuring saloon owner Inez Stannert. A science writer by day, Ann lives in the San Francisco Bay Area and is a member of Mystery Writers of America and Women Writing the West.


"Parker's deft evocation of a lost era in Western American history--the life of the mining boom town--and her complex characterization make Leaden Skies an absorbing read. Her final, cliff-hanging sentence will make every reader desperate for the next installment in Inez Stannert's epic tale. A riveting historical mystery." -- Stephanie Barron, national bestselling author
"A dazzling amount of historical detail is woven in yet never overpowers this story of deceit and greed. Laden with intrigue, this will also appeal to readers of historical Westerns. Parker's depth of knowledge coupled with an all-too-human cast leaves us eager to see what Inez will do next. Encore!" -- Library Journal
"Parker smoothly mixes the personal dramas and the detection in an installment that's an easy jumping-on point for newcomers. Fans of independent female sleuths like Rhys Bowen's Molly Murphy and Laurie King's Mary Russell will be satisfied." -- Publishers Weekly
"Featuring new characters and an intriguing variation in setting, this is an excellent addition to a steadily improving series." -- Booklist
"Parker remains worth reading for the historical detail and the descriptions of a stunning area of Colorado." -- Kirkus Reviews
