Even Long Memories Fade, but Murder Never Dies
Elizabeth “E.M.” Danniher has been among TV journalism’s elite. But divorcing her network exec husband ends not only her marriage but her career, and she’sbanished to tiny KWMT-TV in Sherman, Wyoming, to finish out her contract. Now she’s exploring out what comes next -– in her career, her life, and her relationships with family, friends, and those who’d like to be more than friends.
But she’s not being left in peace to wrestle with these issues because she keeps being drawn in to murder investigations. Now Elizabeth, and handsome KWMT colleague Mike Paycik, rugged rancher Thomas Burrell, and her colorful cast of collaborators, plunge into mysteries from the past that threaten the present. To succeed, they must untangle characters and plotlines from a long-hidden Back Story.

"Colorful characters, intriguing, intelligent mystery, plus the state of Wyoming leaping off every page." — Emilie Richards, USA Today bestselling author
What readers are saying about the Caught Dead in Wyoming series:
“McLinn has created in E.M. a female protagonist who is flawed but likable, never silly or cartoonish, and definitely not made of cardboard.”
"I love the whole series Caught Dead in Wyoming. The writing is witty and sharp; the story is gripping; and the characters are so realistic. Even the supporting characters are fully defined and interesting. What I didn’t expect was a renewed appreciation given by this “inside” view of the world of journalism. With all the current focus on Fake News, I loved being reminded of how vital news people are to our society. E.M. Danniher changes her community and certain individuals – for the better – due to her dogged pursuit of truth and justice."
"I confess to being addicted to this series and characters. I LIKE them. I wish they were real."
“E.M.’s internal monologues are sharp, snappy and often hilarious.”
"A terrific series with a western flair. . . . Great characters that you would want as your friends. Smart, funny, but not perfect."
“Hoping this series lasts forever!”

Back Story by Patricia McLinn
I love this and every book that I have read in this series. The characters are fully developed with virtues a d flaws. They are very realistic. Mrs P. Is a hoot. I have known educators who were very similar to her. I recommend this series to everyone.
This is another fast paced mystery that leaves the reader turning from one suspect to another as the clues gather. Justice is rendered in an unusual twist.

Can it get any better? Patricia McLinn and especially me hope to see a lot more of Wyoming. Very concise and crisp writing makes her books delightful.
