Spokane Clock Tower Mysteries

Spokane Clock Tower Mysteries

Butcher, Baker, Candlestick Taker, Book 1

“A vivid and intense historical thriller featuring murder and mystery, mayhem and madness in 1901 Spokane.”

— New York Times bestselling author William H Keith

This first book in the Spokane Clock Tower Mysteries is a Murdoch Mysteries meets Agatha Christie historical mystery with a cast of rich, quirky characters from inventors to thieves that must work together to solve a murder. Misdirection and slight-of-hand will keep the reader guessing whodunnit until the very end.

Archie Prescot has traveled across the country to design the now-iconic Spokane clock tower for the new Great Northern Railroad Depot. When his talent for creating unique clock chimes connects him with a local patroness, he is thrilled, until she is discovered dead in the workshop of his new colleague. Her grand home on the South Hill provides ample suspects, as Archie works with his landlords, Detective Carew and his twin brother, to prove his fellow inventor, a blind Japanese man, and himself innocent of the crime. While on the hunt for the murderer, romance crops up when a young lady crosses his path with a mysterious past of her own. Six intersecting storylines create a cohesive look at a convoluted murder that will require all points of view to discover the truth…

Butcher, Baker, Candlestick Taker is the first in the Spokane Clock Tower Mysteries set in Gilded Age Spokane.

Cupboards All Bared, Book 2

“Murder, con games, and assassination in 1901 Washington state with the President’s life on the line. Ms. Meredith writes another taut and tightly plotted thriller in the Spokane Clock Tower series, one not to be missed!”

New York Times bestselling author William H Keith

In this sequel to Butcher, Baker, Candlestick Taker, we’re once again transported to Spokane, 1901. A body discovered in Hangman Creek looks to be the result of an accidental fall, but what begins as a “simple” mystery for Thomas Carew and his twin brother Bernard quickly becomes a lot more complicated, including implications that tie in with the bombings at the Idaho mines, and perhaps even President McKinley’s planned visit.

It’s been one month since the events of the first book, and readers will enjoy engaging once again with the full cast of quirky characters, from Marian and Archie to Thomas and Bernard, with a couple new faces thrown in. Those familiar with Spokane will love the entangled web that takes them from Hangman Creek to the Campbell House and the Montvale, ensuring that this story couldn’t be set anywhere but our beloved Spokane.

Cupboards All Bared is Book 2 in the Spokane Clock Tower Mysteries.
