Publisher's Summary

A rodeo producer dead in the bull pen. Accident or murder?

From the deadly tip of the rodeo queen's tiara to toxic "agricultural byproducts" ground into the arena dust, TV reporter Elizabeth, EM, Danniher receives a murderous introduction to the world of rodeo.

The exiled big-time TV journalist hasn't yet adjusted to her demotion to KWMT-TV, a tiny station in Sherman, Wyoming, where cattle ranches, cowboys, and the wide open range set the stage for their own unique brand of crime.

This time she's investigating the apparently accidental death - under the hooves of rodeo bulls - of a rodeo producer preparing for the region's biggest event, Sherman's annual Fourth of July rodeo. When her station's egocentric anchorman bungles the story outrageously, Elizabeth and KWMT-TV colleague Michael Paycik start digging on their own.

Area rancher Thomas Burrell, whose interest in Elizabeth is more than casual, helps out with background on the rodeo and suspects-and there are plenty, because the victim had many enemies. But Tom has loyalties to some suspects as well as to the rodeo, so can he be trusted to help her lasso the truth no matter what?

Patricia McLinn spent more than 20 years as an editor at the Washington Post after stints as a sports writer (Rockford, IL) and assistant sports editor (Charlotte, NC). McLinn received BA and MSJ degrees from Northwestern University.

    "I'm really enjoying this series"

    Patricia McLinn has created an original series that keeps getting better. The characters are well developed and continue to grow. Jane McLaughlin does an outstanding job of bringing it all together. I highly recommend this series.

    Story
    "A true mystery: a long list of plausible suspects"
    Would you listen to Left Hanging again? Why?

    Yes, I'd listen again. Every character presented a taste of today's cowboy culture in a place that seemed very true to life, and each presented his or her own puzzle to be solved. The narrator made every character interesting and distinct, and together, the author and the narrator made Left Hanging feel like a real picture of Wyoming.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    This is the second book about a TV reporter removed from her familiar world of big time news and deposited somewhat reluctantly into an environment very far away, both culturally and geographically. Especially in this second story, her curiosity, her desire to do her job well even for a small, remote population, and her ability to adapt to new surroundings and entirely new challenges makes her especially appealing.


    What about Jane McLaughlin’s performance did you like?

    The tone and pace of the narration made the story easy to listen to. She moved smoothly through a long list of characters, all very different, and made it easy to distinguish one from another. Many had their own accent and peculiarities, as would be expected in a Wyoming rodeo setting, and each one seemed authentic.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    A small town fights to keep its real West rodeo and doesn't shy away from murder.
