The Dyea Convicted Felons Club
In this sequel to Nowhere Else to Go, but Dyea, we find transplanted white collar ex-convict Henry Stillwater with his poker-playing fellow “felons” in the middle of a mystery set in the historic ghost town of Dyea (pronounced Di-eee). Stillwater has settled into a new life and love in the valley at the end of Alaska’s Inside Passage, but his peace is disturbed by the discovery of a body, and a treasure of sorts that seemingly eludes all who pursue it, including wild, unruly critters large and small. Complicating Stillwater’s life is a visit by his attorney daughter who sent him away to Alaska, but she too is absorbed by the mystery and where it takes them – to the summit of the Chilkoot Trail. A new novel by Nita Nettleton with cover art by Courtenay Birdsall-Clifford.
