A Kate Fox Mystery
Coming September 2016
“Oh, what a joy to discover Kate Baer, a protagonist who won’t take manure from nobody. But she’s only one of the stars of this debut novel in what promises to be an outstanding series. The other is the Nebraska Sandhills, a landscape of desolate beauty and endless intrigue. With Stripped Baer, Shannon Baker offers readers a protagonist and a place they will love coming back to visit book after book.” ~ William Kent Krueger, NY Times Bestselling author of the Cork O’Conner series and Ordinary Grace.
“A gem! Shannon Baker’s wryly authentic voice will have you laughing out loud. Move over Longmire–there’s a new detective in town–and you’re going to love her!. With its irresistible cast of characters and flat-out brilliant rural setting, this clever mystery will keep you surprised, delighted, and turning pages as fast as you can.” ~ Hank Phillippi Ryan Agatha Award winner for Truth Be Told
Shannon Baker expertly uses the mystique of the Nebraska Sandhills to ramp up the tension and add an atmosphere so realistically captivating that you’ll smell the fresh-cut hay and feel the muddy dirt-path roads. Even her protagonist, Kate Baer, is as spirited and isolated as the landscape she inhabits. Complicated relationships, surprising twists and a touch of humor make “Stripped Baer” a must read.
~ Alex Kava, New York Times bestselling author of “Silent Creed.”
Shannon Baker’s Stripped Bare hooked me from page one. Heroine Kate Baer is endearingly human and laugh-out-loud funny. But don’t underestimate Kate. Beneath all that girl-next-door warmth and good humor is a determined and capable woman who will stop at nothing to find a killer—including putting herself at risk. With Stripped Bare, Shannon Baker has penned a compulsive, white-knuckle read peppered with interesting characters, a stunning setting, and a mystery that will keep you turning the pages late into the night. The backdrop of the Nebraska Sandhills adds a fascinating and beautiful backdrop to the first installment of what promises to be a thrilling new mystery series. ~Linda Castillo New York Times Bestselling author of the Kate Burkholder mystery series
