A reunion for murder in Haines Tavern

Sheila agrees to soothe Clara’s nervousness by accompanying her friend to the 20-year class reunion for North Bend County High. Nostalgia, good memories, old friendships – this should be fun, right?

Ah, but grudges, old rivalries, and long-buried secrets also arise.

And before the festivities wrap up, there’s one old classmate dead, another being questioned, and enough suspicion to cover several more.

Sheila and Clara have their hands full making sure the wrong person isn’t accused and the right one doesn’t get away. Especially with Sheila also wondering about her relationship with ex-policeman Teague O'Donnell, her fledgling attempts to write fiction, and – of course – the well-being of the canine crew of Gracie, LuLu, and Murphy.

Readers react to Death on Carrion Lane:
"The mystery is cleverly written and the characters will make you remember your high school days. McLinn's books are elevated cozys; they are written with a great deal of intelligence and wit. Can't wait for the next one!"

"Grown up entertainment full of wit and charm that should satisfy the most discerning readers."

"Top shelf reading! ... engaging and filled with humor."

What readers have to say about the Secret Sleuth series:
"I always love a good mystery and both of the published (so far) books in this series meet my criteria for twists, turns, and who-done-its easily. Patricia McLinn does not disappoint with her sharp characters and enough secrets to cover everything. If you like a good, clean mystery, do yourself a favor and read these two books."

"McLinn has created a fabulous new murder mystery series with this book being the second installment. Wonderful characters, both human and canine, with an interesting backdrop. I highly recommend."

"McLinn's Secret Sleuth series has the same winning components of her Caught Dead in Wyoming series: a likeable central character, well-developed setting, fun supporting cast, and a great story."
