An Easy Death by Charlaine Harris

An alternate early 20th Century American history has the country broken into several territories. The Russian Royal Family through advantageous marriages arranged by Tsar Nicholas II now rules what was formerly California and Oregon. The area is now the Holy Russian Empire. 
Lizbeth (Gunnie) Rose has been hired to guide and guard two grigoris (magicians), Eli & Paulina in their search for Oleg Karkarov, a wizard. While Lizbeth agrees to undertake the job, she soon realizes that she has a secret that must remain hidden from the grigoris. The story is fast paced, fraught with multiple dangers, betrayals, and intrigue. While magic is part of the story, it is not the driving force behind it. That is all Lizbeth, who is strong, smart, resourceful, and a remarkable shot with an 1873 Winchester or a Colt 1911. Here’s hoping there will be much more in the tale of Gunnie Rose to come.  - Christine

Description


“Immersive, involving, suspenseful, and intriguing, with a main character you’ll love.” —Lee Child, #1 internationally bestselling author of the Jack Reacher novels

“When a master of her craft offers to tell you a story, let her. The results are dazzling.” —Seanan McGuire, New York Times bestselling author of the Alex, Hugo, Nebula, and Locus Award-winning Wayward Children series.

The beloved #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Sookie Stackhouse series, the inspiration for HBO’s True Blood, and the Midnight Crossroad trilogy adapted for NBC’s Midnight, Texas, has written a taut new thriller—the first in the Gunnie Rose series—centered on a young gunslinging mercenary, Lizbeth Rose.

Set in a fractured United States, in the southwestern country now known as Texoma. A world where magic is acknowledged but mistrusted, especially by a young gunslinger named Lizbeth Rose. Battered by a run across the border to Mexico Lizbeth Rose takes a job offer from a pair of Russian wizards to be their local guide and gunnie. For the wizards, Gunnie Rose has already acquired a fearsome reputation and they’re at a desperate crossroad, even if they won’t admit it. They’re searching through the small border towns near Mexico, trying to locate a low-level magic practitioner, Oleg Karkarov. The wizards believe Oleg is a direct descendant of Grigori Rasputin, and that Oleg’s blood can save the young tsar’s life.

As the trio journey through an altered America, shattered into several countries by the assassination of Franklin Roosevelt and the Great Depression, they’re set on by enemies. It’s clear that a powerful force does not want them to succeed in their mission. Lizbeth Rose is a gunnie who has never failed a client, but her oath will test all of her skills and resolve to get them all out alive.
