THE CASE OF THE BLACK STAR CRIME MYSTERY
MILLS AND BOONS received a lot of publicity for the launch of their Black Star Crime imprint which they state, in their press release, is the first time they have published anything other than romance books. And after reporting this on this blog it has been brought to my attention that the company used to publish the Keyhole Crime series.
Is this an oversight, a re-writing of history, or do the young turks in the publicity department not know their companies history?
THREE PIECES OF EVIDENCE.
TITLE: A Dangerous Funeral (Keyhole Crime No 1)
by Mary McMullen
ISBN 13: 978-0263-73517-8
Publisher: Harlequin Mills & Boon
Publish Date: 1981-05-08
TALES FROM DEADWOOD 1 - MIKE JAMESON
I must say I enjoyed this novel - maybe more so because I've recently watched all three seasons of the brilliant TV series on DVD.
This novel centres on Dan Ryan, formally of Custer's 7th Cavalry and his misadventures in the outlaw town of Deadwood - all the historical characters are here Calamity Jane, Al Swearengen, Wild Bill Hickok.
It's a good easy read that entertains from start to finish.
