Carleton, Susan:The La Chance Mine Mystery v 1 10 November 2008

This mystery western that could be described as an adventure romance, too, bites hard. Listen how it begins:
Quote:
Hungry, dog-tired, cross with the crossness of a man in authority whose orders have been forgotten or disregarded, I drove Billy Jones's old canoe across Lac Tremblant on my way home to Dudley Wilbraham's gold mine at La Chance, after an absence of months. It was halfway to dark, and the bitter November wind blew dead in my teeth. Slaps of spray from flying wave-crests blinded me with gouts of lake water, that was oddly warm till the cutting wind froze it to a coating of solid ice on my bare hands and stinging face, that I had to keep dabbing on my paddling shoulder to get my eyes clear in order that I might stare in front of my leaky, borrowed canoe.
Doesn't that entice you to continue reading?

html source comes from PG, cover from manybooks, a little formatting by me

I can't recommend this enough. I read it in two days and it's quite a biggie.
