April 7

All We Buried, A Sheriff Bet Rivers Mystery launches.

“Well-crafted…Taylor skillfully sets the scene, describing the distinctive local landscape [while] the introspective, conflicted Bet proves her mettle. Readers will look forward to her next outing.”
Publishers Weekly

“A wonderful protagonist [and] a stellar mystery with a current of tension and suspicion powerful enough to quicken your pulse.”
—Allen Eskens, USA Today bestselling author of The Life We Bury and Nothing More Dangerous

“There’s a new sheriff in town…And as the facts of an old mining tragedy emerge, alongside all-too-modern secrets of adultery, betrayal, and abandonment, Bet realizes that this crime is as personal as it gets. For there are things more valuable than the gold in Collier’s caves that must be uncovered—and Elena Taylor’s gutsy new heroine is just the one to do it. Let’s hope this is the start of a long-lived series!
—Jenny Milchman, USA Today bestselling author of Cover of Snow and Wicked River

“At the forefront of this haunting, impeccably plotted mystery by Elena Taylor is a sharp new heroine, Sheriff Bet Rivers, that crime fiction fans are sure to fall in love with. Dark and atmospheric, this novel will keep you reading all night!”
—Sheena Kamal, author of The Lost Ones
