Gold Web: A Klondike Mystery - A Klondike Mystery 4 (Paperback)Vicki Delany (author)
- Publisher out of stock
The fourth in Delany's Klondike Mystery series is a madcap romp through the mud of 1898 Dawson City.
Book Four of the Klondike Mystery Series by Vicky Delany!
The year is 1898. The place is Dawson City, Yukon. A man staggers out of the dusk to collapse at the feet of a startled Fiona MacGillivray, shattering the peaceful calm of a warm July night. Before breathing his last, he gasps two words: "MacGillivray, Culloden." Fiona doesn't know the man and she would prefer not to find out why he linked her name with the "bloodiest of all battles."
As international intrigue abounds and handsome Corporal Richard Sterling of the NWMP searches for the murderer, Fiona's son Angus takes a job as a photographer's assistant, a new dancer almost causes a riot, and Fiona tells herself she is not at all bothered by the amount of attention Richard Sterling is paying to the pretty and charming photographer, Miss Eleanor Jennings.
This is the latest installment of the Klondike Mysteries, starring Fiona MacGillvary. The first three books of the Klondike Mystery series are Gold Web, Gold Fever, and Gold Mountain.

The most interesting mystery that gets more fully revealed than in Delany's previous Klondike gold novels has to do with Fiona's own history: some of the events, decisions and relationships that have made her one of the most vivid, brave, and glamorous protagonists in Canadian crime fiction. * London Free Press *
Delany's history-turned-fiction is well checked against fact. Better yet, she's a storyteller who deftly pulls together the plusses and minuses of women's independence, Yukon tradition, and of course the Mounties. Fiona MacGillivray is already a classic character, and her gutsy participation in Gold Rush life makes a great winter read. * Kingdom Books Blog *
If like me, you wish to read serially, Gold Web will have you scattering to the library looking for more. * Sun Times *
