“Spiritualism,Temperance, and Medicine are involved in this mystery set Seneca Falls, New York in 1857. As librarian Glynis Tryon attempts to save a Native American from hanging for murder, a dark, decade-old secret emerges as more deaths are uncovered.”

This is a good series to read! I really enjoy how the author puts the story into the historical facts and works around them with a great cast of characters, great plot and just plain interesting read! At the end of the story I really like how she
Another tension-filled Glynis Tryon read. I want more Jacques Sundown!
An excess of Native American lore and romantic complications blunt the impact of Monfredo's third historical mystery featuring Glynis Tryon, librarian in Seneca Falls, N.Y., in the mid-18th century. Glynis and the newly arrived doctor, a young Jewish woman from New York City, overhear a farmer voice fears for his life to Constable Cullen Stuart.

Third in a series of light murder mysteries, set during the 1848 Woman’s Rights Convention in Seneca Falls, NY. The main character is a small-town librarian, Glynis Tryon. In this book Jacques Sundown, the half-Iroquois deputy, is accused of murder, and his trial shines a spotlight on the fear and prejudice of Native Americans. The main characters are fictional but the setting, the sexism and racism of the 19th century are real. I enjoyed this book and intend to search out the rest in the series ...more

Another great mystery with twists and turns. The history reminds us of the absurd treatment of women. The passion Glynis has for Cullen and Jacques continues to simmer and makes me wonder if the protagonist has time for love.
The wolf is a bit over the top, but otherwise a solid series. Will be passing through New York state soon. The road signs will call the locations and characters to mind.
Extremely well-written and fascinating historical novel. Concise and interesting characters.
I love all Miriam Grace Monfredo books; after all Glynis Tryon is a librarian!
Interesting mystery based in Genesee Valley area.
