THE CLINCHER
Coming 2018
The Clincher is the first in a series of horseshoer mysteries featuring the irrepressible, irreverent, and irresistible Rainy Dale and her loveable and unlikely side-kick, the culinarily-inclined Guy. Clinching is the technique used to bend a driven horseshoe nail to hold the shoe to a hoof. Rainy Dale is The Clincher, a twenty-something high school-dropout turned farrier (horseshoer) who is haunted by a secret she carries. Estranged from her California d-list actress momma and her ranch hand Texas daddy, she tracked down her childhood horse in small-town Oregon― read more
"The Clincher runs at full gallop from first page to last with sharp-eyed Rainy Dale leading the charge. Lisa Preston's writing is so vivid you'll think you're sitting in the saddle and you'll finish knowing you need to see Rainy Dale ride again." Mark Stevens, Rocky Mt. Fiction Writers “Writer of the Year and author of Lake of Fire  
"Rainy Dale—an engaging character with a unique voice who can shoe horses like nobody’s business!"  J.A. Jance, NYT best-selling author of Clawback
“Fast-paced, absorbing and fun to boot, The  Clincher grabs your attention from the first paragraph and never loosens its grip. Rainy Dale—horseshoer with sass—is one of the freshest and most original sleuths to come along in mystery fiction. May she live on and on!” Margaret Coel, NYT bestselling author of Winter's Child
“The Clincher by Lisa Preston is the perfect contemporary western.”  Reavis Wortham, author of the Sonny Hawke and Red River series
“Lisa Preston’s The Clincher hits like a nailing hammer and won’t let go—her horseshoeing sleuth, Rainy Dale, is a new and distinctive voice in crime fiction.” Craig Johnson, NYT bestselling author of the Longmire series
“A rousing novel. The mystery leaves plenty of open questions for the tough but needy heroine while immersing the reader in all things equine.” Kirkus Book Reviews
“…this exuberantly quirky series opener…will leave readers breathless and eagerly awaiting Rainy’s next adventure.”  Publishers Weekly, starred review
“A great plot and compelling cast of characters round out The Clincher. This one is a winner.”  James W. Ziskin, award winning author of the Ellie Stone mysteries
