Tommy Garth just lost his shirt playing poker at the Red Elk Saloon. As soon as he exited in a huff, a stranger took his seat. A few locals were at the table along with Oren Perley, a shoe-in for Colorado governor. This is until someone at the table shoots him. The locals point fingers at Tommy, a safer choice than a stranger threatening their lives.
Set in Colorado during 1876, The Fifth Ace by Loretta Jackson and Vickie Britton is a classic western murder mystery with gilded cages, wooden sidewalks, and gold mines. The story centers around Drew Woodson, Garth's partner, as he follows clues through twists and turns while unraveling a mess of murders that could take his partner's life and threaten his own.
The Fifth Ace is a marvelous read for any reader of westerns, mysteries, or a person who loves a good book.
