The fourth in Delany''s Klondike Mystery series is a madcap romp through the mud of 1898 Dawson City.

Book Four of the Klondike Mystery Series by Vicky Delany!

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.

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Patrick O'Brian of the 21st Century! Cheryl Cooper has crafted a compelling sequel to her debut novel Come Looking for Me, and the years she must have spent on detailed research have certainly paid off. Having waited four years for Second Summer of War, I was captured at once by her narrative and the smooth transition into the events following Come Looking for Me. She has woven her fictional story into the fabric of history in a most authentic manner, presenting well defined and consistent characters and as real a portrayal of life, both on land and aboard ship, as is likely to be found anywhere. Mrs Cooper had me on the edge of my seat with her timely shifts of scene, always keeping her characters in the same time frame despite their geographical separation. Her character development has been superb, their actions and words are not always predictable, but are always in keeping with how I imagine them to be, and this is my test of a great novel – I do imagine them to be, and I feel like I’m there with them watching and cheering them on. My only lament is that I must now wait perhaps another four years before I can rejoin my friends Emily, Fly, Leander, Gus and Magpie and share in their trials and triumphs once more. Bravo Cheryl!
