Sierra Mystery, Take Three:


The third book in my mysteries series set in the Sierra Nevada is out! Holes in the Ground pays homage to mining history of the foothills, and brings back Ranger Dan Courtwright and his best friend, Sheriff Cal Healey. As the back cover notes: “The hikers passing through the Emigrant Wilderness on the Pacific Crest Trail may or may not be who they say they are. With trail names, who can tell? But Ranger Dan Courtwright finds himself in the middle of a much bigger story, and it is up to him and Sheriff Cal Healey to get to the bottom of it.”

The books have been getting some nice reviews: “Paul Wagner’s love of the outdoors and his experience hiking and camping takes readers right into the mountains. The zippy writing keeps the story moving along the Sierra trails, through the lineup of interesting, quirky characters, and down the winding mystery path until the satisfying end.”

-- Rick Kushman, best-selling NY Times author and commentator for Capital Public Radio in Sacramento
