Sage lay with his cheek against the rough planks, his mind rebelling against the grim reality of his situation. The fading ribbons of light between the wall planks signaled the end of daylight.
-- Dry Rot: A Sage Adair Historical Mystery by S.L. Stoner. Click on the GIVEAWAY post to enter to win one of two copies and an opportunity to host your own giveaway.
Set in 1902 Portland, Oregon, Dry Rot is the third mystery in Stoner's Sage Adair series, but is enough of a story to stand alone.
Sage's adventure involves a losing labor strike, a union leader framed for murder, a ragpicker poet, and collapsing city bridges. The historic details show a wild and wooly Portland of an earlier age -- an age of hobo jungles, lumber camps, brothels, saloons, and corruption.
Dry Rot is coming out on June 1. Ask your local bookstore to order it for you or you can pre-order it on Amazon. You can also sign up here to try to win one of two giveaway copies.
