The Americans are Coming

Sabotage turns deadly when an assassin tries to stop the wild west show from going to England.

Seventeen-year-old Winona aka Winnie Applegate is a trick rider and archer in Colonel Bill Dexter’s Wild West Extravaganza traveling show. Her first act was throwing knives with her younger brother, Riley, who likes to invent things. He especially likes things that go boom.

When a mysterious benefactor offers to bring their show to England, a series of sabotages turns deadly, and Riley becomes a suspect. To protect her brother, Winnie teams up with a lady Pinkerton agent and Harry McDonald, the young man she believes she is destined to marry.

Secrets and sins come to light as it becomes apparent it isn’t just the show they are trying to stop. Someone doesn’t want the Applegates to reach England.

The Americans are Coming is An Applegate Mystery, the first in a new Victorian Era Mystery Series.

Winnie is more comfortable throwing knives than knowing which fork to use. She prefers boots and britches to ballgowns and dancing slippers. Will England be prepared for the arrival of the Applegate family?

"Accidents and intrigue at a Wild West show figure highly in Hollister’s new Victorian-era mystery, The Americans are Coming. Rich in period details, as well as an inside look into life of a perpetually moving roadshow, the story focuses on the Applegate family and especially trick rider and ace archer Winnie. Pinkerton spies who are intent on stopping a murder are a part of the mix, with a bit of romance thrown in. When an offer to bring the show to England surfaces, sabotage looms and Winnie must separate the foes from those she can trust, while protecting her younger brother. A complex plot with realistic dialogue and unexpected twists makes this a page turner not to be missed!"
