Kevan T. Hunt Mystery Series Novels
Set in northern California’s Amador County, evil waits for opportunity among the quaint Gold Country mining towns, rolling vineyards, and wilderness of the Sierra Nevada mountain range.
TRAGEDY SPRING, the second novel in the UPCOUNTRY MYSTERY SERIES, draws former Sheriff Matt Dunleavy into a complex investigation when a renowned archaeologist is found brutally murdered on a lonely riverbank in Amador County. While Matt looks into whether the murder has anything to do with the proposed construction of a new casino in the county, attorneys Sidney Dietrich and her godfather Jack McGlynn are hired to try to stop the casino from being built. But Sidney is sidetracked by local Native American Billy Vega’s old family claims of tribal sovereignty. As she digs deeper into Billy’s family history, ancient feuds and modern greed reveal a hundred years of deceit and tragedy that complicates Sidney’s relationship with Matt and endangers her life.
