Publisher's Summary

The sixth novel in the acclaimed Sean Stranahan mystery series

Sheriff Martha Ettinger reunites with once-again lover and sometime private detective Sean Stranahan to investigate the death of a woman who was stranded in a spring snowstorm. When a fly wallet is found in a pannier on the saddle of the woman's horse, the leather engraved with the initials EH, Stranahan shows the wallet to Patrick Willoughby, the president of the Madison River Liars and Fly Tiers Club. Only a few days before, Willoughby was approached by a man selling fishing gear that had belonged to a famous outdoorsman and writer. All the clues point to an obsession with Ernest Hemingway, and Sean soon finds himself on the trail of a missing steamer trunk rumored to contain not only the writer's valuable fly fishing gear but perhaps even priceless samples of his unpublished work.

The investigation leads Sean into the salacious world of Chinese traditional medicines and through one extraordinary chapter in Hemingway's life to another. From a trout river in Michigan where a woman grapples with the cold in her hands and heart to the ruins of Havana and finally to a cabin in Wyoming under the Froze to Death Plateau, Keith McCafferty's latest novel in the Sean Stranahan mystery series is a thrilling tale.

    "4"

    If a mystery involves mountains, horses, fly fishing, Ernest Hemingway and a leisurely read of Literary Import...set in today's cell phone and high tech world...
    well, I'll listen to it twice. I had trouble stopping for any interruption. Perfect for bored redtless minds on a hot, humid summer day.

    "Interesting Premise"

    I seldom write reviews but thought this book was worth one. The premise of the story was interesting but felt like a cumbersome stretch. Having just discovered Keith McCafferty and listened to the first two books I've become hooked. I live in the Sierras, hunt, fly fish and know a lot of diverse people. The characters he has created are true and consistent. But this was my least favorite of the three. Rick Holmes has improved as a narrator and brings these diverse characters to life whether male, female, educated or not. Now off to the next book in the series.....

    "Very very good book"

    Great character development, interesting content, mystery is seen through thick opaque glass, and the overall feeling from the narratives one of lighthearted joy that all will be well. Conversational dialogue is excellent and real, perhaps the highlight of the book. The narration was simply excellent. Get the book and enjoy yourself. Mike Dunn
