One man's sport is another man's murder....

Private eye Trade Ellis, part cowgirl, part Apache, has her hands full running her Arizona ranch.  But when Victoria Carpenter, the famous romance writer, shows up with gruesome stories about repressed childhood memories, all going back over thirty years, Trade jumps at the chance to take the case.

Victoria's flashbacks include her father's so-called Sporting Club and its not-so-innocent picnics, where the wives talked, the children played...and the husbands made a brutal sport of hate and death. She's convinced that her father and his hunting buddies were racist killers. But how do you investigate decades-old crimes?  Especially with no bodies, no police reports, and the only accuser a woman who makes up stories for a living. When the threatening phone calls begin and a cross is set ablaze on Trade's ranch, it soon appears there will be at least two more bodies they won't have to dig out of the past-Victoria's and Trade's.

BURIED SECRETS

Private eye Trade Ellis, part cowgirl, part Apache, has her hands full running her Arizona ranch.

She's convinced that her father and his hunting buddies were racist killers. But how do you investigate decades-old crimes? Especially with no bodies, no police reports, and the only accuser a woman who makes up stories for a living. When the threatening phone calls begin and a cross is set ablaze on Trade's ranch, it soon appears there will be at least two more bodies they won't have to dig out of the past -- Victoria's...and Trade's.

About the Author:

Sinclair Browning spent her childhood on her belly in dry arroyos hunting sand rubies, converting her propane tank into a stagecoach and exploring the Sonoran desert on her horse. Summers were spent on the family ranch in southern Arizona. 

One of five nominees (the only writer) for the Arizona Arts Award in 2000, Browning's mysteries have been nominated for Shamus and Barry Awards. Publishers Weekly compared her America's Best to the "heroic war fiction of John Toland and Leon Uris." A former writing instructor she has also been a judge for the Edgar, the Shamus and the St. Martin's First awards. 

Her work covers a broad spectrum: mysteries, thrillers, historical fiction and a a metaphysical novel. Her nonfiction includes spiritual books on afterlife gifts, signs we receive from people we have lost who assure us that their spirits are indeed alive and well.
