Crossover Cover: Beyond the Grave


In April 1894, John Quincannon, Sabina Carpenter’s partner in the San Francisco-based firm Carpenter and Quincannon, Professional Detective Services, is hired by Felipe Velasquez to find a treasure chest containing valuable religious icons that Velasquez’ father had a priest bury in 1846, during the Bear Flag Revolution. Unfortunately, he fails in his task. In 1986, Elena Oliverez, director of the Museum of Mexican Art in Santa Barbara, wins a marriage coffer in an auction that contains Quincannon’s notes on the case. Elena faces danger as she tries to find the treasure herself. Elena Oliverez previously appeared in Muller’s novels The Tree of Death and The Legend of the Slain Soldiers, as well as the short story “The Sanchez Sacraments.” Muller and Pronzini’s Carpenter and Quincannon mysteries are in the CU through a crossover with Sherlock Holmes, so this novel brings in Elena Oliverez.

This crossover is one of hundreds covered in my book Crossovers Expanded: A Secret Chronology of the World Volume 3! Like the first two volumes, this one is an AUTHORIZED companion to Win Scott Eckert's astounding Crossovers: A Secret Chronology of the World Volumes 1 and 2 and will be published by Meteor House!
