HUNTING THE SATURDAY NIGHT STRANGLER  by C.M.  Wendelboe
FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: Oct. 8, 2018

"Strictly routine, with perfunctory characters, little mystery or suspense—despite many superfluous chapters from the killer's point of view—and a particularly underwhelming windup."
A second case for Arn Anderson, who retired from Denver Homicide to move back to Cheyenne, finds him settled in more deeply and ready to look just as deeply into the relatively shallow locals' backgrounds when they start getting murdered. Read full book review >
THE MARSHAL AND THE MOONSHINER by C.M.  Wendelboe
FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: Jan. 17, 2018

"Lots of violent action tempered with hints of romance and cultural clashes and a climactic surprise, though much of it comes across as serviceable exposition in search of a strong throughline."
Wendelboe turns from the contemporary American West (Hunting the Five Point Killer, 2017, etc.) to the Depression era to kick off a new series that packs the U.S. Marshal for Wyoming off to Oklahoma in pursuit of a murder suspect. Read full book review >

FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: Oct. 8, 2017

"A slow-burning cold case with copious clues, conscientious detection, a high body count, periodic interruptions from the killer's viewpoint, and all the pages and pages of unraveling you'd expect from such a generously plotted mystery."
The chronicler of FBI agent Manny Tanno (Death on the Greasy Grass, 2013, etc.) launches a new series that brings a retired Denver cop back to his roots, and a lot of other people's, in Cheyenne. Read full book review >
