Synopsis: Hall unveils the sequel to his Ambrose Bierce and the Queen of Spades. Once again, the hero is the historical figure Ambrose Bierce, William Randolph Hearst's star journalist and San Francisco's most celebrated writer. This time Bierce is investigating the disappearance of a Hawaiian princess attached to King Kalakaua's entourage. While the aged king slowly expires in the Palace Hotel's Royal Suite, San Francisco plays host to a throng of Hawaiian royal courtiers and counselors embroiled in a swirl of political intrigue surrounding the successor to the throne. As Bierce and his protege, Tom Redmond, search for the missing princess, Hall weaves a wonderfully tangled narrative of murder and mystery. Intelligent, gripping, and often very funny, Ambrose Bierce and the Death of Kings will appeal to all readers of mysteries, adventure tales, and historical novels.

About the Author: Oakley Hall is the author of more than twenty works of fiction, including Warlock, Separations, and the Ambrose Bierce mystery series. Hall is best known for The Downhill Racer, basis for the 1969 Robert Redford film of the same name. Hall was the Director of Programs in Writing at the University of California at Irvine for twenty years. He is also director of the Squaw Valley Community of Writers and, in 1998, received a PEN Center USA/West Award for lifetime literary achievement. He lives in San Francisco.
