Linda Roberts weaves national conspiracy and murder into a mystery as chilling as the Montana mine shafts that are rapidly filling with bodies.”
“Curiosity Kills is a gripping mystery/suspense tale unraveled by reporter Maddie McKenzie. On vacation in Butte, Montana, she stumbles onto information which leads her to believe the abandoned Annabelle Mine is hiding a terrible secret. People who venture too close disappear or are found dead. She suspects the mine is being used to illegally store nuclear waste until Yucca Mountain in Nevada is ready, but she discovers the truth is even worse. Author Linda Roberts’ tale raises the question: How far will the government go in the name of patriotism and national security? Her skillful writing gives us a glimpse into what could happen in the future—or even now.”
The author was born and raised in Butte, Montana, which is the setting for Curiosity Kills. She is intimately familiar with the area and the people. It wasn’t that long ago that her relatives and friends worked the mines there to remove precious metals. Now the underground mines are closed and one, in this fictional work, has become the center of a conspiracy of international proportions.
Linda is a retired bureaucrat who is living the good life in the southwest, where she devotes her time to travel and writing. Curiosity Kills is her first novel. Misguided Patriotism is in the works.
