"Fast-paced, intelligent, and as cunningly woven as a spider's web, Deadly Descent is a mystery-lover's dream."
-W. Michael Gear and Kathleen O'Neal Gear
New York Times bestselling authors

Layers of deadly intrigue bind generations of families in historian Lottie Albright's Western Kansas community. When false accusations threaten senatorial candidate Brian Hadley's political career, secrets whispered to Lottie as editor of the county history books spur a personal search for his aunt's murderer.
Ignoring warnings from her twin, clinical psychologist Josie Albright, Lottie dons a badge to gain access to information. She delves into a horrifying cold case to prove her merits as a deputy and impresses Sheriff Sam Abbot with her ability to combine historical research methods and police procedure. Soon Josie and her sister add their helpful expertise in untangling the web of families bound by a lethal legacy of prideful secrets.
Charlotte Hinger is a Western Kansas historian who edited more than 500 family submissions for county history books. Her historical novel Come Spring won the Western Writers of America Medicine Pipe Award. Deadly Descent was her first mystery, followed by Lethal Lineage.
