I’m finally getting excited, as Chief of Thieves, the sequel to Where They Bury You is being published in three days—Monday, June 15! I’d like to share one of my favorite excerpts from the book, an October 1868 scene, based on a true event in Laramie, Wyoming on that date. The two main characters in this scene work for Lily and Auggy on the ranch—Lincoln, who had escaped from South Carolina slavery, and Nick, an Irish immigrant orphaned by an earlier Shoshone Indian attack. You can read the excerpt here. I hope you enjoy the scene, and—soon—the entire book.
