The Wicked West is a compilation of Books 1-5 (plus the Introduction to the main series character) in the Capital City Murders series of novellas. The series begins in Olympia, Washington, then to Salem, Oregon, Sacramento, California, Carson City, Nevada, and Boise, Idaho.
In each story, Nick O’Flannigan is on a one-year assignment to visit each state capital and submit photographs of the capitol building and surrounding areas to a major magazine. There’s been a murder, and Nick’s keen eye for details pulls him onto the case.
Will this involvement impact his assignment or his relationships?
Targeted Age Group:: 25-65
What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
After reading some of Sue Grafton's "Alphabet" mysteries, I wondered if I could craft a series of books set in the U.S. state capitals. Knowing what it takes to write full-length novels, I settled on writing novellas. With my co-author Troy Lambert we are underway on the fifty stories, starting in the Pacific Northwest state of Washington, working our way east, then finishing in Alaska and Hawai'i.
