Before they can break their boots in, gunshots explode in the middle of the night, and Jane discovers the body of the campground host. Since the club members are packing revolvers to practice at the firing range, her friends become prime murder suspects. Heading into dangerous terrain, Jane explores the dead man’s reckless past to solve the crime before their wilderness adventure goes up in smoke.
Take an inside look at No Grater Evil. Read this sizzling excerpt from the book.
The three friends soon emerged from the piney woods and paused at a rock outcropping near a bend in the trail. Jane’s chest expanded as she took in a deep breath of the crisp mountain air. “Someone lives over there.” She shielded her eyes with one hand and pointed with the other across the narrow box canyon to a log cabin nestled in a fluttering aspen grove.
Smoke puffed in white clouds out of the short chimney stack and sailed to the east. A lone man with a German Shepherd lumbered out the door.
She waved both arms above her head in greeting, but the man was staring the other way, down into the short ravine.
“What’s he looking at?” Jane’s gaze fell to the bottom of the gully just a few more steps down the path. Next to the shallow, winding creek, an amphitheater with rows of gray, splintered wooden benches encircled a smoldering fire pit.
That’s when she saw the campground host lying with his head near the pit and his legs crumpled underneath his body.
Jane’s heart went into her throat as she screamed out, “Are you okay?” and raced down the steep trail with her friends on her heels.
She came up sharp. Libby drew in an audible breath and Wes mumbled, “What the heck?”
Dark red blood stained the man’s light jacket and pooled out from under his back. Several large animal prints were tracked in the blood.
