"Butte was our mythical touchstone and standard of authenticity....When anyone in the family did something heroic, criminal or just plain self-destructive, my Aunt Marcia would credit 'the Butte in him [or her].' It wasn't a place, this Butte that lived on inside all its children, it was a condition of permanent defiance." ~ Barbara Ehrenreich in Living with a Wild God.
"I've been all over the world and done things that most don't have the guts to try. I've met and talked with people from every place on the planet and when it comes down to the best character on earth, you never have to go any farther than Butte. Those are the best people on Earth." -Evel Knievel
Nobody in Butte has been killed on St. Patrick's Day in recent memory, though many have felt half alive the next morning after a few too many the day before. And who would think an ad in the Mining City Messenger would lead to someone's death?
Mesa and Chance Dawson need more that the luck o' the Irish to solve a 30-year old death in order to track down the rogue responsible for the St. Patrick's Day murder. Most of the former hospital staff and patients they talk to including a nurse whose prescription drug hat led to a change in careers, and a Cuban psychiatrist/a Castro revolution émigré -want to forget the secrets of the past - especially the killer.
Grave Madness, the second in the Mining City Mystery Series, is an uncommonly smart mystery set in Butte, Montana, that explores the stigma of mental illness, the bonds of enduring friendship and old secrets coming to light.
