Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Another small-town murder, this one at the state fish hatchery, sets Alpine Advocate editor and publisher Emma Lord on the penultimate addition to this popular series.” Library Journal
“Daheim injects enough wit and color to make her tale more entertaining than the standard small-town mystery.” Kirkus Reviews

Author Bio: Mary Daheim

Author Bio: Mary Daheim

Mary Daheim started spinning stories before she could spell. She has been a journalist, an editor, a public relations consultant, and a freelance writer, but fiction was always her medium of choice. In 1982 she launched a career that is now distinguished by sixty novels. In 2000 she won the Literary Achievement Award from the Pacific Northwest Writers Association. In October 2008 she was inducted into the University of Washington’s Communication Alumni Hall of Fame. Daheim lives in her hometown of Seattle and is a direct descendant of former residents of the real Alpine, which existed as a logging town from 1910 to 1929, when it was abandoned after the mill was closed. The Alpine/Emma Lord series has created interest in the site, which was named a Washington State ghost town in July 2011. An organization called the Alpine Advocates has been formed to preserve what remains of the town as a historic site.
