Book Description

Book Four of the Klondike Mystery Series by Vicki Delaney!

The year is 1898. The place is Dawson City, Yukon. A man staggers out of the dusk to collapse at the feet of a startled Fiona MacGillivray, shattering the peaceful calm of a warm July night. Before breathing his last, he gasps two words: "MacGillivray, Culloden." Fiona doesn't know the man and she would prefer not to find out why he linked her name with the "bloodiest of all battles."

As international intrigue abounds and handsome Corporal Richard Sterling of the NWMP searches for the murderer, Fiona's son Angus takes a job as a photographer's assistant, a new dancer almost causes a riot, and Fiona tells herself she is not at all bothered by the amount of attention Richard Sterling is paying to the pretty and charming photographer, Miss Eleanor Jennings.

This is the latest installment of the Klondike Mysteries, starring Fiona MacGillvary. The first three books of the Klondike Mystery series are "Gold Web," "Gold Fever, " and "Gold Mountain."

About the Author

“It’s a crime not to read Delany,” so says the London Free Press.

Vicki Delany is one of Canada’s most varied and prolific crime writers. Her popular Constable Molly Smith series (including In the Shadow of the Glacier and Among the Departed) have been optioned for TV by Brightlight Pictures.

She writes standalone novels of modern gothic suspense such as Burden of Memory and More than Sorrow, as well as a light-hearted historical series, (Gold Digger, Gold Mountain), set in the raucous heyday of the Klondike Gold Rush. She is also the author of a novel for reluctant readers, titled A Winter Kill.

Having taken early retirement from her job as a systems analyst in the high-pressure financial world, Vicki is settling down to the rural life in bucolic, Prince Edward County, Ontario where she rarely wears a watch.

My Review

I am a huge fan of Canadian mystery author Vicky Delany. This is the first Klondike mystery that I've had the pleasure of reading.

This series is fairly unique as there are not a lot of mystery series set in Canada to begin with and this one is set in the past. I studied history, particularly Canadian, in university and I am very impressed with the Delany's historical research.

Great story with mystery and intrigue. Wonderful way to learn about Klondike Yukon history as Delany is able to bring this time in history to life for her readers.

The kindle edition is only $ sure to snap one up soon!
