A novel by

From - The Rainbow Reader -- Salem West (
"Being the Steel Drummer is one of the very best whodunits to hit the bookshelves this year. It's well written, well plotted, intricate, and inventive ... ... manages to create a central crime that is the literary equivalent of an M.C. Escher drawing ... ... can arguably be described as one of the most well written bondage scenes in all of lesbian literature ... ...Beyond the classic whodunit, Ms. Bradbury also treats readers to a gripping and sensual love story between two women in post Civil War America."

Detective Maggie Gale is back and she's on the verge of saying - I love you - to her beautiful live-in "inamorata", college professor Kathryn Anthony, but first Maggie has to solve a murder in the local civil war era cemetery.
When Maggie finds an old journal detailing a hot romance between two 19th century women who lived right in her neighborhood, she works to find the connection between what's happening in the present to the tragedy that drove the two women apart 140 years ago. A ghostly figure, secret passages, valuable treasure, and trying to find the intimate key to trust and commitment in their relationship all challenge P.I. Maggie Gale and Dr. Kathryn Anthony in this exciting second book in the Maggie Gale Mystery Series. Don't miss this sexy new novel by critically acclaimed author Liz Bradbury, it's sure to entertain lovers of both mystery and romance!

and smoldering bedroom scenes of the present, will leave no
one unsatisfied. Don't miss this exciting new novel!
