1920s Lucas Hallam Mystery Series
by L.J. Washburn

Hallam is the first appearance of Lucas Hallam, a cowboy who has outlived the days of the old west to become a gun-toting private eye and stuntman in the early days of motion pictures in California. Originally published in The Eye's Have It, 1984.

In The Blue Burro, Hallam's search for a kidnapping victim leads him to a shady bordertown nightclub and plunges him into a deadly tangle of international intrigue with high stakes. Originally published in Lone Star Law in 2005.

Ladysmith, an adventure from Hallam's days as a Pinkerton agent that was originally published in Guns of the West in 2002, finds him delivering a legacy for an old friend who has passed away, a chore that has him riding right into unexpected danger.

Hollywood Flesh, published in The Book of all Flesh 2001. It's a good thing Lucas Hallam is a hard-headed old cowboy and doesn't believe in such nonsense as Zombies, or this case might give him nightmares.

Under the names Livia J. Washburn and L.J. Washburn, Livia Reasoner has been writing award-winning, critically acclaimed mystery, western, romance, and historical novels for almost thirty years. She began to write in collaboration with her husband, author James Reasoner, and soon branched out into telling her own stories.

In addition to writing, Livia enjoys photography, arts, crafts, and cooking, but she also loves having a pile of lumber, a circular saw, and a building project. An accomplished carpenter, she has framed houses and built more sets of bookshelves than she can remember, some of which have been filled with the books she's written. A good day for her includes having time to create something new in the kitchen, on a story, and in the garage.

Livia lives in the Texas countryside with her husband, and her dogs.

  1. Livia, I know they're not really "western" but your peach mysteries are set in Texas, so I think you should mention them. I love the hometown atmosphere you create. Of course, I also love westerns! Thanks for the free book.
