Death in Trout Fork front cover.jpg




She should have known when she fished that Pink Floyd T-shirt out of the creek that it belonged to that waitress, the one who disappeared...

Kathryn "Ryn" Lowell has escaped the stifling confines of her office at the New York travel magazine she writes for and pulls into Trout Fork, a tiny fishing hamlet in the Colorado Rockies, to write an article about the town. She hasn't been there long, when along with her orange tabby cat, Jack Kerouac, she discovers a T-shirt in the local creek that belonged to the missing waitress. Now foul play is suspected, and Ryn, who has fallen for the quaint mountain town, is determined to find the killer and give her new friends closure. Teaming up with the local police detective, who seems to want more than Ryn can give him, she puts it all on the line--her heart, her job, and her life.

From Amazon Reviewers

This was the first introduction to this author and it won't be the last. The characters are multidimensional, engaging and believable. This was a well thought out plotted book and once I started I got to the end so fast that it took a few minutes to realize I had finished it. 

“What impressed me most were the beautifully written descriptions of nature in Colorado. It is obvious that O'Byrne loves this territory as much as her fictional protagonist, Ryn.” 

"DM O’Byrne knows how to capture an audience."
