    See full review The Indigo uillA special thank you to NetGalley and Peer Publishing for providing a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review With a title like Stephen Downing is Dead expectations are automatically set high for Dan Goss Anderson's new novel Based in Tuscon at the turn of the 20th century Owen Bartlett is an inexperienced defense attorney who has taken on a case that is too big for him to chew To make matters worse the prosecutor has some time under his belt It is possible they have the wrong man Tie a three strand cord of lives together and you've got Stephen Downing is Dead If his readers weren't already hooked by the mysterious title Anderson grabs a second hold of their attention with the opening line Life changes in a momentHe then proceeds to leave the reader in the dark while describing a situation that we definitely would like some answers to This is a historical mystery novel that will keep you turning pages and asking uestions until the very end Anderson has a sophisticated way of writing that is enjoyable and intriguing This is one of those books that could easily be made into a movie That's what it felt like reading it like watching the story unfold on a filmstrip in front of me The characters are interesting enough to where even the minor characters seem to play a major role and the author is very detailed Not in an overly fluffed overcompensating kind of way but tastefully and effectively May it be noted that the author communicates to the reader that he had every intention of being as historically accurate as possible but also intended to provide the reader with maximum comprehension This is something I can definitely appreciate from the author Having a sense of purism without compromising efficacy is an admirable uality for an author to possess If you're looking for a mystery that is easy to read but still carries rounded content then this is the book for you

    I received my copy of Stephen Downing is Dead in a Good Reads giveaway Stephen Downing is Dead is an engrossing historical fiction set in Arizona territory beginning in the rough and tumble days of the early 1900's This is the story of a young man moving west to find his place in life and discovering much than he had hoped for in some very tense but interesting places You are taken back and forth as the story unfolds peeling away the layers of secret lives and burdens carried by friends and lovers alike I found this an engaging read with a wonderful historical perspective I look forward to reading of Dan Goss Andersons work

    Gripping plot switching between flashback story with history and trial court scenes to the character's real time years later Secrets plot twists tense revelations and twisted relationships all push you through to the culmination which is than a reveal of the killer If you're cognizant of the Trayvon Martin events this mystery set in early 1900s Arizona will ring so true Highly recommendedAnd I'm not just saying all that because I'm NUSL '95

    I received Stephen Downing is Dead through a goodreads giveaway I was impressed that the author sent me a personal note and signed the book but this thoughtful gesture had no influence on my critiue of his novel The story was told in an effortless style that had me entranced despite the fact that it dealt with murder The characters were developed with finesse including sufficient detail to evoke empathy toward their personal circumstances The way in which Dan Goss Anderson set up the telling of his tale alternating between past and present building curiosity as the trial unfolds and intertwines with the final deathbed confession held my interest until the final page I thoroughly enjoyed this novel's uiet sincerity

    I generally stay away from legal thrillers because of the sheer implausibility of the plots but this story was something different The story centers around the murder trial of defendant Miguel Cordero in 1905 I got a good feeling for what a trial might have actually been like in Tucson during that time which was refreshing I loved the historical fiction feel of the book But aside from the main story the author explores several themes such as the wild west and opportunity MexicanAmerican tension religion and guilt the role of women and of course love This book was a much deeper character study than most in the legal genre It had a nice pace Most telling is that I am still left with sadness for some of the characters and a desire to be back in their lives

    I received this as part of the Goodreads First Reads giveway Very enjoyable read with an enticing plot and easy to follow story I love a good mystery novel and this does not disappoint While I saw most of the ending toward the middle of the book it still left me wanting I like how the author wove together the past and the present to tell the story of Owen and Stephen Downing Extremely well written the author gives a detailed account of 20th century Arizona and American life Informative yet interesting Two thumbs up

    Wonderfully moving story The author takes us to turn of the 20th century Arizona and to the lives times and prejudices that existed at this time in history The story is of love loss and life as it existed then and to some extent as it exists today A lovely story
