Jancy Dewhurst, nosy newspaper reporter and amateur sleuth through THE RIBBON MURDERS, continues her meddling in this one––MURDER ABOARD THE CHOCTAW GAMBLER––the second in the three-book Jancy Dewhurst series.
This time Jancy leads us into the heart of the Mullendore Murder, a true crime that took place in Osage County, Oklahoma in 1969. A little romance adds sizzle to the plot.
The actual murder case remains “unsolved,” although, in GAMBLER, Jancy and her professional investigator cohorts find the truth that satisfied law enforcement people, but which they could never prove to a jury. When juries hung, the case, like the victim, got buried. But in GAMBLER readers will know the truth.
