Killing Dreams ~An American Victorian Steamp...
A Denver city councilman is found dead, and the Denver Metropolitan Police Department is frustratingly lost on how to proceed. There are no leads, no clear pieces of evidence, and nothing more than a mysterious untimely death. In desperation, the DMPD enlists the help of Dr. William Curtis McDowell, a prominent scientist, former deputy marshal of the Arizona territory, and professor at the Colorado School of Mines.
Along with his fellow ex- deputy marshal and wife, Patience “Patches” McDowell, he works to solve a crime that looks more and more like murder. Each day brings more dangerous complications; more related deaths occur, and several attempts are made to assassinate Dr. Bill, making it clear that someone out there doesn’t want them involved. At the same time, exciting new discoveries in the vital field of forensic science and psychology are being discovered. Dr. Bill and Patches will risk their lives to discover that even in a child’s fairy tale, there can be killing dreams.
