Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event that
spotlights upcoming releases that I’m really
looking forward to. Waiting On Wednesday
is the creation of Jill at Breaking the Spine.
This week’s “can’t-wait-to-read” selection is:
Five Days, Five Dead
A China Bohannon Novel #5
Carol Wright Crigger
Five Star, December 2018
From the publisher—
Sepp Amsel, a fabulously successful gambling hall and saloonkeeper entrepreneur, is about to become the bridegroom in the most public wedding ever to take place in wild and woolly Spokane, Washington. He wants to engage China’s detective services when his fiancee’s sister is kidnapped and a substantial ransom demanded. There’s just one problem. The client thinks it’s possible he’s being bamboozled because things don’t quite add up. Only days remain for China to figure out why the sister was snatched and not the bride. But the clock is ticking. Worse, it isn’t long until murder becomes part of the equation. First a bellhop, then a tailor. Who will be next? China had better find out soon, before she, too, becomes a target for murder.
Why am I waiting so eagerly? One of my favorite historical fiction periods is the Gilded Age, the last 30 years or so of the 19th century and I especially enjoy the still-wild atmosphere of the American West. China Bohannon is one of my favorite sleuths of the day and watching her become a private investigator on her own terms has been a real treat. I expect nothing less from this newest episode in her adventures!
