Easy Mark

Acclaimed author Shannon Baker returns with Easy Mark, the fourth novel in the Kate Fox Mystery Series.


"...Baker’s writing is crisp and delightfully descriptive, her plots intricate, and—best of all—Kate Fox is a wonderful mix of boot-leather toughness and latent vulnerability..." —James Chandler, author of Misjudged


With her ex-husband, Ted, working nearby in an adjoining county, Kate Fox is eager to prove she’s the better sheriff. And when the less-than-popular ex-foreman of a local ranch is found dead, Kate gets the opportunity she’s been looking for.


But as it turns out, the case hits a little too close to home. The dead man’s body is discovered in Kate’s brother Jeremy’s truck—and her brother is missing. Evidence left at the crime scene leads Ted to suspect the ranch’s new foreman, but Kate isn’t convinced he’s responsible for the crime.


Kate dives into her own investigation. But the mystery only deepens when a herd of horses disappears and threatening strangers are seen in the Sandhills. It seems like everyone close to the ex-foreman has secrets to hide and reasons to kill—including Jeremy.


As Kate races to eliminate suspects, a shocking realization leads her to the truth. But is she too late to prevent the next murder?
