Erin Lindsey's third historical mystery The Silver Shooter follows Rose Gallagher as she tracks a monster and searches for treasure in the wilds of the Dakota Territory.
It's the spring of 1887, and Rose Gallagher is finally coming into her own. She's the proud owner of a lovely little home near Washington Square, where she lives with her mother and friend Pietro, and she's making a name for herself as a Pinkerton agent with a specialty in things...otherworldly. She and her partner Thomas are working together better than ever, and mostly managing to push aside romantic feelings for one another. Mostly.
Things are almost too good to be true - so Rose is hardly surprised when Theodore Roosevelt descends on them like a storm cloud, hiring them for a mysterious job out west. A series of strange occurrences in the Badlands surrounding his ranch has Roosevelt convinced something supernatural is afoot.
It began with livestock disappearing from the range, their bodies later discovered torn apart by something monstrously powerful. Now people are dying, too. Meanwhile, a successful prospector has gone missing, and rumors about his lost stash of gold have attracted treasure hunters from far and wide - but they keep disappearing, too. To top it all off, this past winter, a mysterious weather phenomenon devastated the land, leaving the locals hungry, broke, and looking for someone to blame.
With tensions mounting and the body count rising, Roosevelt fears a single spark will be all it takes to set the Badlands aflame. It’s up to Rose and Thomas to get to the bottom of it, but they’re against the clock and an unknown enemy, and the west will prove wilder than they could possibly imagine....

"Exceptional....Lindsey keeps the suspense at a high pitch throughout. Fans of Preston and Child’s Pendergast series will be enthralled." (Publishers Weekly, starred review)
"Superbly characterized....Based on historical characters and filled with high adventure, romance and scares, Rose’s newest adventure is a winner." (Kirkus)

Another Great Addition
This was another great entry in the Rose Gallagher cozy mystery series. I was wondering how Rose and Thomas would do outside of New York but I have to save I greatly enjoyed their sojourn to wild west. I continue to enjoy the mix of historical cozy mystery with the supernatural. The mystery was very well written and the other characters were intriguing. In the final chapters the author decided to break up the partnership between Rose and Thomas and I can't say I was really upset about it. Don't get me wrong I like them as partners and as a potential couple but at the same time they didn't seem to have a lot of chemistry. When we meet Rose she is already in "love" with Thomas but I never really bought it, because she honestly didn't know Thomas, not really, and although she has grown to know him as the books have continued Thomas is so closed off she still really doesn't know him that well. So to me their relationship always felt stilted and uneven. To be completely honest I think Rose has more chemistry with Pietro and Burrows then she did with Thomas not that I think the author will go there but it's interesting to think about. I hope the author intends to write more in this series.
I really enjoyed these books, but I was disappointed with ending. I hope there is going to be a book 4.
