Amateur Sleuths Stumped by Startling Shooting and Suspicious Animal Attack in Trapline
Established Colorado Author Mark Stevens Releases Third Allison Coil Mystery this November

DENVER, COLO. — Shady politics mire the stunning landscape of Colorado in Mark Stevens’ latest Allison Coil Mystery, Trapline (November 8, Midnight Ink Books).

In the third installment of the thrilling series, a badly chewed-up, partial corpse is the last thing hunting guide Allison Coil expects to find on a routine trip to the Flat Tops Wilderness Area. Authorities conclude the corpse to be the result of a mountain lion attack, but Allison smells foul play.

Simultaneously, a routine campaign stop for U.S. Senate candidate Tom Lamott—a controversial candidate as a result of his pro-immigration standpoint—ends with a startling shooting that lands Lamott in the hospital. Reporter Duncan Bloom, who was covering the event, now finds himself on the chase for the attacker.

Investigations that begin with the coincidence of occurring on the same day quickly intertwine in a captivating dual narrative that exposes greed, hatred and the dark depths of human indifference.

Trapline also weaves in the hot-button issues of for-profit prisons and immigration to further spark the story.

Mark Stevens will be signing his latest book Trapline at Longmont's Barbed Wire Books, 504 Main Street, on Saturday, Nov. 22 from 3-5 p.m.
