Can’t-Wait Wednesday: A Death in Eden by Keith McCafferty


Can’t-Wait Wednesday is hosted by Tressa at Wishful Endings. This is a weekly meme to spotlight and discuss the books we’re excited about that we have yet to read. The books I choose aren’t released yet and usually won’t be published for at least two or three months. So I have a while to wait!

I love finding out about books which will publish in future months and I like to share my excitement about the books. I also like to find out about new books on other people’s blogs and hope they’ll sometimes find something to look forward to on my blog.

I’m excited to read . . .

A Death in Eden by Keith McCafferty

Series: Sean Stranahan Mystery#7

Published by Viking

Publishing date: July 3, 2018

Genre: Mystery

320 pages

Synopsis: Scarecrows are appearing in the cliffs above the Smith River in Montana, and state investigator Harold Little Feather, is trying to discover the culprit leaving the hay figures in the cliffs, with signs painted that read “No Smith River Mine–Not on My Watch.” The event is related to a copper mine project that threatens the river, but his investigation takes an ominous turn when a little girl claims that a scarecrow chased her in the night.

At the same time, Sean Stranahan and his friend “Rainbow” Sam Meslik have been contracted as guides to float a party down the river, which includes the manager of the mine project and the president of “Save Our Smith,” a grassroots organization devoted to stopping the project. Both men grew up on the Smith on neighboring ranches. When a dead body is found in the park, it’s revealed that the two have a shared history that runs much deeper and darker than their opposing viewpoints.


I’m several books behind with this mystery series, but I really like Keith McCafferty’s writing and the characters and mysteries in this series. The fly fishing setting in Montana is also a great plus!

What books are you looking forward to reading when they’re available?

I love to read--especially mysteries, science fiction and fantasy. I also love blogging, photography, gardening, playing Mah Jonng, reading with a cat on my lap, throwing a ball for a dog, creating cards to send to family and friends, reading book blogs, using my computer.

  1. These sound like great books. I’m just discovering them so I’ll have to see if my library has them. Stormi and I have similar tastes so if she’s considering them, I should too 😉


  2. This series sounds like so much fun! There are a steady stream of US writers who dish up engaging adventures with a wonderful slice of daily life and this sounds like one of them. I hope you really enjoy this one, Jan:)


  3. Nifty cover, and it sounds like a cool mystery too. Haven’t heard of these, but now I need to check ’em out!
