Candace J Carter, a former park ranger, gives us an exciting outdoor mystery featuring a new sleuth. Handy with a six-shooter, Henry “Whispering” Smith is a range detective for the Colorado Plateau Cattlemen’s Association. The action begins when he apprehends an old acquaintance moving cows that belong to someone else. Shots ring out from the bushes and bullets fly. In the aftermath Henry is faced with arresting an old friend who’d just saved his life. We travel with Whispering Smith from Colorado Plateau to the North Carolina mountains in this fresh, new mystery from an “author of great promise.”
Carter’s MUDDY WATERS is an exceptional first mystery. It is well plotted, suspenseful, and rich in detail and imagery. Her protagonist, Henry “Whispering” Smith is more than just likable. He’s smart, dogged, and unusually talented at following the dangerous trail that leads him through this excellent novel.-Sasscer Hill, multiple award winning author of FLAMINGO ROAD
