Gold Dust: A Red River Mystery #7

“Readers nostalgic for this period—songs by the Monkees and Tommy James and the Shondells blast from transistor radios—will find plenty to like.”

Publishers Weekly

“…the unlikely game of polecat-and-mouse that unfolds in a series of developments as preposterous as they are richly enjoyable. The result reads like a stranger-than-strange collaboration between Lee Child, handling the assault on the CIA with baleful directness, and Steven F. Havill, genially reporting on the regulars back home.”

Kirkus Reviews

“Reading the seventh Red River Mystery is like coming home after a vacation: we’re reuniting with old friends, returning to a comfortable place. Wortham’s writing style is easygoing, relying on natural-sounding dialogue and vivid descriptions to give us the feeling that this story could well have taken place. Another fine entry in a mystery series that deserves more attention.”
