From “the reigning royalty of Minnesota murder mysteries” (The Rake) comes a striking new heroine: a young Irish immigrant caught up in a deadly plot in nineteenth-century Deadwood
 Mary Logue will be at Valley Bookseller on Wednesday, December 2 at 4:30 p.m. for a reading and signing of her new book, The Streel: A Deadwood Mystery, as part of their Totally Criminal Cocktail Hour series.

Mary Logue brings her signature brio and nerve to this story of a young Irish woman turned reluctant sleuth as she tries to make her way in a strange and often dangerous new world. Logue’s new thriller conjures the romance and the perils, and the tricky everyday realities, of a young immigrant surviving by her wits and grace in nineteenth-century America.

"Tersely and beautifully, Logue recreates the muddy streets of Deadwood, the haphazard keeping of the peace, and the rugged hearts and souls of those seeking their fortune in the Black Hills gold rush of the late 1800s. The Streel is both a taut mystery and a cautionary tale of the evils of greed. I loved the redoubtable heroine, Brigid Reardon, and I loved every stunning line of this fine story." —William Kent Krueger, author of This Tender Land

"Mary Logue is, hands down, one of my favorite writers. The Streel shows her at the top of her game. The novel is a rich combination of elements—part history, part gripping mystery, and part immigrant saga. Highly recommended!" —Ellen Hart, author of Twisted at the Root
