The Serpents Trail
From an author whose "twists and turns keep you turning the pages" (Denver Post) comes a brand-new mystery series starring Maxie McNabb-an independent retiree whose adventures across the country in her motor home are destined for murderous roadblocks.
At 63, Maxie is cruising down the Alaska Highway in her brand-new Winnebago. She's always been a gypsy at heart-and with her mini-dachshund at her side, and the open road ahead, she's never been happier. But before her exploration of the Lower Forty-eight gets underway, Maxie needs to figure out who burglarized her friend's Colorado home-and why. But the closer Maxie gets to solving the puzzle, the more it becomes chillingly clear that her friend's life isn't the only one on the line...

At sixty-three, Maxie isn't sure that leaving everything behind for life on the road is the best move. But once her belongings are packed and she begins cruising down the Alaska Highway in her Winnebago, she has no doubt she's done the right thing. After all, she's always been a gypsy at heart. With her mini-dachshund, Stretch, at her side and the open road ahead, she's never been happier.
Before her exploration of the Lower Forty-eight gets under way, Maxie is called to the side of her dear old friend Sarah Nunamaker. Terminally ill, Sarah made it clear she has a secret she needs to reveal to Maxie in person. But by the time Maxie pulls into Grand Junction, Colorado, her friend is in the hospital, barely conscious. And someone has broken in to Sarah's Victorian home, leaving her bedroom in shambles. While the police have no insight into who burgled Sarah's house - or why - Maxie is convinced it must have something to do with Sarah's delusionary ramblings. Now, as Maxie seeks an answer to this puzzle, it becomes chillingly clear that Sarah's life isn't the only one on the line.
