I am just a few pages away from finishing a book I started a few days ago. This is by far the most critical time for me in book reading. I just have a few pages and I am sure the planets are working against me to make sure I don’t read those last few pages. It always seems to happen that way for me when I get to the end of a book. Something or someone always distracts me and next thing I know a month has gone by and I still hadn’t finished the book. When and if I do finally finish it, it no longer has the impact it once would have. This time I have the brilliant plan of hiding in the bathroom. Yes, yes… I know it’s obvious, but it works.

Spider Silk: A Murder Mystery on the High Desert (Sheriff Bud Blair Oregon Mystery Series Book 1)
by Rod Collins
4.5 Stars (32 Reviews)
Genre: Mystery, Thriller & Suspense | Crime Fiction | Mystery

FREE for a limited time

A GLOBAL EBOOK AWARD NOMINEE, this is the first book in the Sheriff Bud Blair Oregon mystery series…
A suspicious death leads to an investigation, a manhunt, and the capture of the self-confessed killer. But when Sheriff Henry “Bud” Blair reads the autopsy report, he begins to suspect that someone other than his prisoner is the actual murderer.

Set in Oregon’s high desert country, Spider Silk introduces you to a compelling cast of characters and sets you on a fast-paced, page-turning adventure to find out who is behind a string of (seemingly) unrelated murders.

Moving from the backdrop story of a remote ranch and a lonely widower to the dark and pervasive reach of organized crime, Spider Silk is not only intriguing… it’s an entirely believable saga.

Surprising forensic evidence and sharp detective work keep your interest level high and the suspense palpable in this police procedural cliffhanger.

Spider Silk is also a love story.

Badly burned by divorce, Bud Blair steers shy of women. But his work makes it almost impossible to avoid contact with Nancy Sixkiller, the beautiful Yakima Indian woman who manages the Emergency Services Center in Lake County, Oregon.

That contact is intensified when Bud is injured and Nancy takes on the role of caregiver.

When you dive into this gripping western fiction tale, you’ll enter the sparsely settled, high desert landscape blessed with the hot springs, big lakes, and timbered mountains Collins knows and loves.

Thirty years after her mother’s death, Alice Ashcroft is drawn back to the coastal English town of Curridge. Somebody in Curridge has been reviewing Alice’s novels online, and in those reviews there have been tantalizing hints at a hidden truth. A truth that seems to be linked to her dead mother.

THE SOUL AUCTION is the story of a woman’s search to discover the truth about her mother’s death, and of an evil force that once came to visit a sleepy English town.
