Deadwood (late 1876) ... A rowdy and reckless undertaker’s delight. What better place for a killer to blend in?
Enter undertaker Clementine Johanssen, tall and deadly with a hot temper and short fuse, hired to clean up Deadwood’s dead … and the “other” problem. She’s hell-bent on poking, sticking, or stabbing anyone that steps out of line.
But when a couple Santa Fe sidewinders ride into town searching for their missing uncle, they land neck deep in lethal gunplay, nasty cutthroats, and endless stinkin’ snow. Their search leads them to throw in with Clementine to hunt for a common enemy.
What they find chills them all to the bone and sends them on an adventure they’ll never forget.
From the bestselling, multiple award-winning, humorous Deadwood Mystery series comes a new herd of tales set in the same Deadwood stomping grounds, only back in the days when the Old West town was young.

Great series starter. I started with the Deadwood series!!!
Fun, fast and fantastic!
Woohoo, an all-new series from Ann Charles, author of the award-winning Deadwood Mystery series, and this time she has help from Sam Lucky, (AKA Hubby :-) )
These two have conspired, Um, collaborated, to take us back to the beginning, back when Deadwood was new and slaying ghosties and ghouls was just beginning in the Old West.
With the backdrop of the old west, they created some great characters, like Clementine Johanssen, a tall short fuse and hot-tempered undertaker hired to clean up this new town. Oh, and let's not forget a couple of Santa Fe sidewinders, Rabbit and Boone, a couple of cowboys you are going to fall instantly in love with who will have you in stitches as they fall in with Clementine to find out exactly what happened to their uncle.
Add to this mix of unlikely characters, Hank Varney, Clemintine's helper, a man who is a lot more then he seems.
This story is peppered with some historical facts and a lot of fantastic fiction and will have you glued to your seat as you flip through the pages!
Five Stars Ann and Sam, and I can't wait for more!
