Product Description

“Ron Franscell’s THE OBITUARY is gorgeously written, complex and satisfying
— a damn near perfect mystery.” --JOHN LESCROART, NYTimes bestselling author

When a world-renowned forensic anthropologist journeys to Winchester, Wyoming, to examine the long-dead remains of a woman who claimed to be Etta Place — the Old West’s most mysterious and legendary female outlaw — he’s not expecting to find a man’s headless corpse in her crypt. The grisly discovery plunges him and Jefferson Morgan — the editor of the weekly Winchester Bullet — into a shadowy and deadly world of satellite-savvy highway pirates, rural meth labs, computer hackers and old-fashioned corruption. And they might not survive the fall. In this sequel to his dynamic first novel, THE DEADLINE, bestselling author Franscell takes readers on another wild ride with protagonist Jefferson Morgan.

A great job with a fresh, original idea. THE OBITUARY weaves elements of the best forensics writers at work today, as well as the best detective writers — a great mix. ” –MICHAEL PALMER, NYTimes bestselling author

“Ron Franscell takes us on a journey like a leaf in a stream — flowing from scene to scene, always something new around every corner, picking up speed as it heads to its inevitable conclusion. His skills as one of the country’s top narrative non-fiction writers and journalists makes his fiction realistic and edgy, while his flair for suspense and drama keeps us turning the pages, then wanting more when finished.” –STEVE JACKSON, NYTimes bestselling author of MONSTER and NO STONE UNTURNED

Wonderful read! A beautifully written mystery, full of small-town charm that I can well appreciate, exciting twists and compelling characters.

I loved how easily the author kindled investment in the lives and happenings of these fictional characters. Although it started off a tiny bit slow for me, it felt like one minute I was at 25% and then I looked again and it was 86%. The storyline seriously ramped up at that point. Enough that I actually uttered aloud "WHOA!" - totally forgetting where I was and that no-one else knew what all the excitement was about. Once that happened it was pretty much impossible to put down.

Even though this is the second in the series, I believe it can be read as a stand-alone. I didn't read the first one and didn't find I was lost at all. That said, I will be adding the first one in the series to my To-Be-Read list/mountain and following the author's future work.

5.0 out of 5 stars An unexpected hero with no super powers Feb. 21 2017
By Alice C. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Gingerly I walked through this book but it was great... not a blood at any cost like of story, OK some blood and at great cost to some of the bad guys and a couple of good guys. Why kill off the college students? Not sure. Or the poor truck driver at the beginning. Not sure. Just finished up last night and I'm not going on any road trips for a while. Yes, it was that good.

I'm probably the only person of my generation who hasn't seen Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid , but now I plan to watch it. I'm sure the history in this book is more accurate than the movie! I liked the main character and the story and will probably read others in the series.
