In 1940, Leland Langtry ran off with his redheaded secretary and $10,000 in company funds... Or so everyone believed... Forty years later, Langtry's remains are found in a boarded-up silver mine tunnel. And as the knife still jammed between his ribs had belonged to his partner in Lang-Star Mining, Tom Starbuck - also long since dead - a jury decided that Tom had killed Langtry. But Tom's widow, Delia, resists that verdict and persuades that very private investigator Conan Flagg to find the real murderer - an impossible job made tougher by the curious reticence of nearly everyone in town whenever Leland Langtry is mentioned...

I am an avid audio book listener, having at least two books on the go at any one time and getting through two or so a week.
A gentle detective story well read, not challenging but one for a long journey. Ending slightly abrupt. But nonetheless I would recommend the book
