 December 1818

Captain Lacey is drawn into affairs of the highest in the land when his friend Grenville is asked by the Prince Regent to look into odd happenings in his lavish abode of Carlton House. Objects of value have gone missing, paintings and sculpture have been mysteriously moved, and the Regent suspects ghosts or other malign spirits.

The Bow Street Runners have a more human suspect for these doings, and Captain Lacey is asked by a Runner to help him prepare a case against the man they’ve already arrested.

But the suspect is under the protection of James Denis, a leader of crime, which brings Lacey head-to-head with him once more. Opposing Denis can be dangerous, and so can dividing the loyalties of the men who work for him.

Meanwhile Lacey has his family to worry about—his daughter, his wife, and new members who have joined. In addition, he’s not convinced that either Denis or the Runners have the right idea in this matter. He must produce the correct answer before Denis loses his patience or one malevolent Runner in particular makes Lacey answer for the crimes.

Book 12 in the Captain Lacey Regency Mysteries series. This is a full-length novel.

 A rodeo producer, dead in the bull pen. Accident or murder? 

Elizabeth "E.M." Danniher, until recently a top-flight national TV journalist, is regaining her footing after a dizzying demotion to tiny—and entirely foreign to her—Sherman, Wyoming. But her equilibrium faces a major challenge.

The apparently accidental death — under the hooves of bucking bulls — of a rodeo producer preparing for Sherman’s annual Fourth of July Rodeo catches the attention of Elizabeth and her KWMT-TV colleague Mike Paycik. Not only is it a major story about the region’s biggest event, but it’s being outrageously mishandled by the station’s egocentric anchor.

As Elizabeth and Mike dig, area rancher Thomas Burrell joins the investigation, providing background on suspects — and there are plenty because the victim had many enemies. But Tom has divided loyalties, so Elizabeth doubts his commitment to finding the truth no matter what. Not to mention that both Mike and Tom show an interest in her ... they might be okay with working together in a peculiar triangle, but the points of this geometry is starting to get under her skin.

… From the tip of the rodeo queen’s tiara, to “agricultural byproducts” ground into the arena dust, Elizabeth receives a murderous introduction to the world of rodeo.

What people are saying about LEFT HANGING:

 “I started laughing on the first page and continued laughing until the end.”

 “Loving the world of Cottonwood County, Wyoming!”

 “The dialogue was so well written that I could easily imagine the innuendo, tone of voice and facial expression of each character.”

 

What people are saying about the CAUGHT DEAD IN WYOMING series:

“McLinn's mysteries set in Wyoming are addictive. The writing is excellent, the twists and turns keep the brain engaged, and Elizabeth's wry commentary keeps a smile on my face.”

"She writes a little like Janet Evanovich only better.”

“E.M.’s internal monologues are sharp, snappy and often hilarious.”

“Hoping this series lasts forever!”

“McLinn has created in E.M. a female protagonist who is flawed but likable, never silly or cartoonish, and definitely not made of cardboard.”

“While the mystery itself is twisty-turny and thoroughly engaging, it's the smart and witty writing that I loved the best.” – Diane Chamberlain, bestselling author

 Welcome back to the world of Shifters Unbound! Collared and controlled, bear, wolf, and big cat Shifters live in Shiftertowns, following rules meant to subdue their violent and animalistic natures. Humans believe they’re tamed, rendered harmless . . . but are they?

Lion Eyes

Bree has just decided to give up trying to be a Shifter groupie when a lion Shifter slams into her truck and tells her to drive. Seamus is on the run from hunters, other Shifters, and who knows who else. All Bree knows is that he’s compelling, needs her help, and most intriguing of all, wears no Collar …

Bad Wolf

Wolf Shifter Broderick is stuck looking after his three younger brothers and a Collar-less Shifter who is driving him crazy, but he’s putting up with them for Joanne, the human woman he, for some reason, wants to impress. Joanne Greene, while grateful to Broderick for rescuing her sister, doesn’t know what to make of him. She’s been a loner most of her life, better able to relate to computers and coding than to people, until Broderick desperately needs her help.

Wild Things 

Lupine Shifter Mason McNaughton has had enough of the feral Shifter living in the bedroom down the hall from his. Nothing is working to heal the guy, so Mason volunteers to go in search of an elusive Shifter healer. Jasmine Samuelson, a psychic from New Orleans, is the best bet to help him, but can he convince Jasmine, who vows to have nothing to do with Shifters, to accompany him on his perilous mission?

Events take place after Mate Bond (Book 7) and White Tiger (Book 8).
