9781590585993: The Drop Edge of Yonder (Alafair Tucker Mysteries)

Who killed Uncle Bill? Alafair Tucker is desperate to find out. One August evening in 1914, a bushwhacker ended a pleasant outing by blowing a hole in Bill McBride, kidnapping and ravaging Bill's fiancée, and wounding Alafair's daughter Mary. Does Mary know who did the low-down deed? If she does, the bullet that grazed her knocked that information right out of her head. All she remembers is that it has something to do with the Fourth of July.


Several malicious acts testify to the fact that Bill's killer is still around and attempting to cover his tracks. The question is, can Mary remember before the murderer manages to eliminate everyone who could identify him?


The law is hot on the bushwhacker's trail. There is little Alafair can do to help the sheriff, but that will never stop her from trying. If there's a chance she can protect Mary from further harm or help her remember, she'll do anything she can. Even confront a vicious killer.

About the Author:

Donis Casey is the author of ten Alafair Tucker Mysteries: The Old Buzzard Had It Coming, Hornswoggled, The Drop Edge of Yonder, The Sky Took Him, Crying Blood, The Wrong Hill to Die On, Hell With the Lid Blown Off, All Men Fear Me, The Return of the Raven Mocker, and Forty Dead Men. This award-winning series, featuring the sleuthing mother of ten children, is set in Oklahoma during the booming 1910s. Donis has twice won the Arizona Book Award for her series, and been a finalist for the Willa Award and a seven-time finalist for the Oklahoma Book Award. Her first novel, The Old Buzzard Had It Coming, was named an Oklahoma Centennial Book in 2008. Donis is a former teacher, academic librarian, and entrepreneur. She lives in Tempe, Arizona.

From AudioFile:

In 1914 Oklahoma, Alafair TuckerÕs daughter, Mary, is chaperoning her uncle and his beloved as they go for a pleasant ride. When the party is attacked, a bullet grazes MaryÕs temple, and her uncle is killed. Later his fiancŽe is found Òbeat up but alive.Ó After a suspicious fire, Alafair, fears for MaryÕs safety and joins the hunt for the culprit. Pam Ward reads the Oklahoma voices with a hint of a twang and a heaping dose of AlafairÕs motherly concern. Ward even gets to sing in character as Alafair comforts Mary and rides herd on her brood. CaseyÕs novel is satisfying both for its mystery and for its glimpses of early-twentieth-century Oklahoma, which include recipes and facts about the era at the end.
