A Deadly Affair at Bobtail Ridge

A Samuel Craddock Mystery

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


Someone is trying to kill Jenny Sandstone and she might know who it is. But how can Samuel Craddock protect her when she seems hell-bent on protecting the attempted killer's identity?

Craddock has learned to accept that his neighbor and friend Jenny's personal life is strictly secret. But when her dying mother tells him that Jenny is in danger, Craddock is confronted with a dilemma. He wants to respect Jenny's privacy, but he is haunted by the urgency in the dying woman's voice.

Then when Jenny is the victim of a suspicious car accident, Craddock has no choice but to get involved. He demands that she tell him what he needs to know to protect her and to solve the mysteries surrounding the strange events that began taking place as soon as Jenny’s mother passed away.

Forced to confront the past, Jenny plunges into a downward spiral of rage and despair. She is drinking heavily and seems bent on self-destruction. Craddock must tread lightly as he tries to find out who is behind the threats to her. But only by getting to the bottom of the secrets buried in Jenny’s past can he hope to save her both from herself and from whoever is out to harm her.

From Publishers Weekly

Feb 09, 2015 – In Shames's winning fourth Samuel Craddock mystery (after 2014's Dead Broke in Jarrett Creek), the laconic Texas lawman takes up a case based on the incoherent mutterings of a dying woman, Vera Sandstone. It's not really a case as such, since Vera cautioned that her daughter, Samuel's longtime neighbor and county prosecutor Jenny Sandstone, might be in some kind of mortal danger. At first, he doesn't take Vera's warning very seriously, and neither does Jenny, but when attacks are made on Jenny's beloved horses and then on her, he's inclined to keep a closer eye on things. However, the more he presses Jenny for details especially about her mysteriously estranged brother, Eddie, whom he suspects might be a person of interest the more she withdraws. Craddock moseys among the locals, following his keen instincts and sorting clues, until reaching a satisfying resolution.
