Product Description

Product Description

This is the second installment in the Henry Wright Mystery series. Henry Wright is a retired Chief of Police from tiny Eagle Lake, Wisconsin. He retired several months after his beloved wife's unexpected death and moved to California. He settled in Palm Springs at the request of his old friend Wayne Johnson, who is a captain in the Palm Springs police department. Henry spends a lot of his time at his computer helping the FBI profile victims of violent crimes. Wayne, and some of his other law enforcement colleagues request his assistance solving the most difficult times. Henry lives with his roommate, retired high school teacher Charles Knightly III. (Please don't call him Chuck.)

One of Henry's numerous ex-colleagues, Sheriff Bill Rustow from Tuolumne County in California's Mother Lode contacts him for help in solving a bizarre mystery.

Bob Sandman is a gold miner in the Sierra Nevada Foothills near Sonora, who is entombed in his gold mine by a large explosion. Henry Wright drives from his home in Palm Springs to to help out his old classmate, Sheriff Bill.

Rustow is shorthanded and needs his help in figuring out who might have wanted Sandman dead. Henry spends a week in Sonora where he discovers that it is more like the Wild West of old than the sleepy little town it appears to be.

He learns about himself as well as he meets someone who will change his life, while he uncovers who sent Sandman to die this horrible death.

I bought this book for my kindle to read while I was on holiday with my family. It is easy to read whilst the family are watching TV or just chatting. A good plot and I have read many of Albert Simon's books. I would recommend this author to anyone who enjoys mystery books.

5.0 out of 5 stars Even better than the first book 19 Sep 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Having read the first book.... For Sale in Palm Springs (Henry Wright Mystery #1).... it was a pleasure to be back in 'Henry's world' again as you feel you are rejoining an old friend. Enjoyed the plot in this one more than the first book. This time a murder involving a miner. Fascinating to learn a little about gold and prospecting. Just a little, enough to explain things but not enough to get you yawning. At last Henry seems to have a real love interest. Although they have promised to keep in touch (who knows) will have to read the next book (already downloaded) which I am looking forward to.Springtime in Sonora (Henry Wright Mystery #2)

Really enjoyed the second Henry Wright mystery. The novels remind me of happy vacations in California (minus the crime) . I just love the leisurely pace of the novels and the really well-defined characters. Looking forward to the next in the series. Highly recommended as so good to read a more traditional detective story.
