The brand new Sean Stranahan mystery is here!
I have been a fan of Keith McCafferty’s since his first book, The Royal Wulff Murders (each mystery in the series is named after a fly fishing tie), so it is a huge thrill for me to have him on the show. We had a great chat about Montana, six-toed cats, mountain lions, book research and more.
If you haven’t read Keith’s Sean Stranahan books, you’re in for a treat! The Bangtail Ghost is book eight in the series and is released on 18 August 2020. The books are all beautifully written, with rich, compelling characters, interesting settings and mysteries.
In the interview, Keith and I mention his son Tom who is a painter and who inspired Sean Stranahan’s work as an artist. You can see Tom’s incredible paintings here on his website and also here at the Cole Gallery in Seattle.
