Distinguished author Velda Brotherton took a departure from her comfort zone in 2013 with the publication of her first romantic mystery, The Purloined Skull. Now she returns to the scene of the crime with her second thrilling Twist of Poe mystery, The Tell-Tale Stone. The body had been buried in a shallow grave then dug up, probably by coyotes, and scattered out like a feast for other smaller animals. Crows then fed on the face. Looked like they'd already removed the eyeballs and a couple of them had worked on the tongue until the gaggle of humans arrived. Several of the black birds perched in tree limbs, others circled above, cawing in anger, their wings slapping at the wind. Dallas Starr and Jessie West work to solve a pair of grisly murders while searching for stolen diamonds and pursuing their favorite pastime... finding love in all the unusual places.

Velda Brotherton writes from her home perched on the side of a mountain against the Ozark National Forest. Branded as Sexy, Dark and Gritty, her work embraces the lives of gutsy women and heroes who are strong enough to deserve them. After a stint writing for a New York publisher, she's settled comfortably in with small publishers to produce novels in several genres. While known for her successful series work-the Twist of Poe romantic mysteries, as well as her signature Western Historical Romance Victorians and Montana series-her publishing resume also includes numerous standalone novels like Remembrance, Once There Were Sad Songs, A Savage Grace, Wolf Song, Stoneheart's Woman, and her magnum opus, Beyond the Moon. She enjoys reading mysteries, but it never occurred to her she could write them until Dal Starr and Jessie West emerged from her background in the newspaper business, and the Twist of Poe mysteries were born.
