Cyanide Wells

Marcia Muller: Cyanide Wells (USA 2004)

From the Publisher:
He moved to the next window. Living room: hearth with fire burning, white cat sleeping on the area rug in front of it, black leather furniture. Gwen sat at the end of the sofa, her feet propped on a coffee table, her head bowed as she went over some papers, probably manuscript pages. A half-full wineglass sat on the table beside her; she reached for it and sipped, looking up at the window. Involuntarily Matt stepped back, even though he knew she couldn't possible see him. She set the glass down, turned her head, and spoke to someone outside his range of vision. Appeared to be waiting for an answer.
Still pretty, Gwennie, even after fourteen years. You've taken good care of yourself. Of course, with money, that's easy.
He began to snap photographs.

In a riveting departure from her award-winning series starring San Francisco P.I. Sharon McCone, Muller presents a new mystery set on the wild and rugged coast of northern California where people and passions twist, turn, and kills CYANIDE WELLS

Fourteen years after his wife's disappearance branded him a murderer and ruined his life, Matthew Lindstrom receives an anonymous phone call revealing that Gwen is alive... and well aware of the wreckage she left behind. Seeking answers and revenge, he comes to the isolated town of Cyanide Wells. Here, where the surrounding thick forest conceals twisted paths and old sins, Matt begins to learn the details of Gwen's new life. But before he can confront her, his ex vanishes once more. Now Matt must join forces with Carly McGuire, a local woman with secrets of her own, and begin a desperate hunt for the truth about past crimes and Gwen's fate. For hovering over him are suspicions that can destroy him once again.

Cyanide Wells

Marcia Muller: Cyanide Wells (USA 2003)

From the Publisher:
A hard, four-hour drive north of San Francisco leads to sparsely populated Soledad County, a combination of spectacular seashore, inland forests, and small towns steeped in gold-mining history. One of those towns is Cyanide Wells, now an artsy community, whose name comes from the miners' use of cyanide to refine ore and the time the area's water supply was tragically poisoned.

To Matthew Lindstrom, that sinister legacy is ironically appropriate for the place he finally expects to find his ex-wife, Gwen. Fourteen years earlier, her baffling disappearance branded him a murderer and destroyed his reputation and career as a photographer. Suddenly, after all this time, an anonymous phone caller tells him that Gwen is alive - and well aware of what she has done. Matt comes to Cyanide Wells looking for answers... and revenge.

Here, where the surrounding thick forest conceals twisted paths and old sins, Matt works to uncover the details of Gwen's new life. But before he can confront her, his ex vanishes once more. With his future again threatened by suspicion, Matt must join forces with Carly McGuire - a local woman with secrets of her own - and begin a hunt through Soledad's untamed landscape and an interior geography of betrayal and darkness. There perhaps lies the truth about past crimes and Gwen's fate... as well as Matt's own.
