Spider Latham is back!

Spider is back! And he’s driving the Yugo again!

I’m announcing the launch of my newest book and fourth in the Spider Latham series. TROUBLE AT THE RED PUEBLO is set in the Kanab UT/Fredonia AZ area.

Here’s Amazon’s intro:

When Deputy Sheriff turned private investigator Spider Latham is sent to help the Red Pueblo Museum, he doesn’t suspect it will cause a rift between his wife, Laurie, and himself. 

Museum Director Martin Taylor is desperate, and his son Matt is angry. Some unknown person is bent on destroying the museum financially and is about to succeed. Things turn violent. It ends with someone’s skull bashed in with an Anasazi ax, and everyone has motive for the murder. 

Can Spider untangle the web of secrecy and lies surrounding the museum before the Taylors lose it all? And in the process, can he save his own marriage?

The book is available at Amazon in paperback and Kindle, at the Nook store on Barnes and Noble, and on Kobo.

My launch party will be at the Red Pueblo Museum in Fredonia AZ on July 30. If you’re in the Kanab UT / Fredonia AZ area, come by at 7 in the evening (AZ time—it’s 8 PM Utah time) and see the museum that is the setting for the book.


I hope you’ll enjoy meeting Spider again. For me, it was like seeing an old friend I hadn’t seen in years and picking up the threads again.

Good luck with your new book. Sorry to say that I have not read any of your other books as I usually only read non-fiction. I miss the area too. Studied geology there and have been to Freedonia and Best Friends Animal Society up the road a piece plus all the national parks and the Coral Pink Sand Dunes. Beautiful! 1 Unfortunately left Utah and moved East. A mistake. Suggestion: How about a mystery concerning stolen Quarter Horses from the local ranchers and the quest to get them back. Maybe make it into a Western? Best of health to you...Christopher..

Thanks for your comment, Christopher. I've already started blocking a mystery that involves the Best Friends sanctuary, but the idea of stolen quarter horses is intriguing, too.

Thank you, thank you for bringing Spider back! I loved Trouble at the Red Pueblo. The characters were bouncing around in my head for a couple of days after I finished the book--I didn't want to let them go. I very much enjoyed the humor. What a gift you have!

Thanks. My weekend was made so special by this book. Spider and Laurie are such good friends and it is great to be able to visit with them again through your wonderful storytelling. I look forward to learning how they do in their new home. Did Jade and his wife have their baby? Karam opened my eyes to greater understanding. I am glad he will be reunited with them next summer.

Thank you again, Zona Gale Sweeney

Liz, We just finished up with Write Here In Ephraim. Wish you could have been here. I'd like to put my bid in to be one of the presenters at KWC. Please email me. I don't see anything on the website that instructs you how to go about that. I've been teaching two classes, one on writing mystery/thrillers/suspense, and the other on the realities of self-publishing.
