Synopsis: Claire Reynier's job is to buy rare books for the Center for Southwest Research at the University of New Mexico library. Claire likes nothing better than to search for valuable western titles, but when a call from a collector takes her to a remote wilderness ranch, her dream job almost becomes a nightmare. In the new wild west that Claire enters when she drives into the Blue, book collecting is not a gentleman's profession. Before she knows it a thief has hijacked the box of books she has carefully selected, and Claire must find the books and the culprit if she is to keep her job and her life. From ranchers who take their property rights in deadly earnest to traveling book collectors who are Internet savvy even if they live in their pickup trucks, the authenticity of this exciting novel will grab any reader who has ever wandered into a used book store.
"An intricate puzzle that kept me guessing until the last piece snapped into place. The Stolen Blue is a terrific mystery with a savvy and thoroughly likeable sleuth."--Margaret Coel, author of The Lost Bird
"Neil Hamel is gone in this one, but Van Gieson's back--and better than ever. Don't miss The Stolen Blue."--Tony Hillerman
"Judith Van Gieson was always a terrific writer, but now she's outdone herself with The Stolen Blue, starting a grand new series featuring Claire Reynier. The Stolen Blue is a captivating and absorbing, highly readable, stay-with-it-till-you're-done mystery."--Fred Harris
