    2. So excited to be back in 1880's Colorado with Inez and all of the other colorful characters from this series! edited to add review: This is #5 in the Silver Rush historical mystery series and it did not disappoint! What a colorful cast of characters in 1880 Leadville, Colorado. And an engaging mystery also. Inez is a one of a kind heroine who is torn between her romance with Rev Sands and her husband who deserted her and their son over a year ago. I won't give away any spoilers with the mystery [...]

    3. I feel like I've been waiting forever for this book! I really enjoyed the first four books in this series, and I was worried that the author had abandoned it since it has been 5 years since the last book, and never before did she wait so long in between the books in this series. I was so excited to see this new one was out, and I snatched it up immediately.Coincidentally, I read the first four books in this series while living in England, but since then have wound up living in Colorado, not far [...]

    4. edited to add: Gifted this to Mom for Christmas and she loved it! This is #5 in the Silver Rush historical mystery series and it did not disappoint! What a colorful cast of characters in 1880 Leadville, Colorado. And an engaging mystery also. Inez is a one of a kind heroine who is torn between her romance with Rev Sands and her husband who deserted her and their son over a year ago. I won't give away any spoilers with the mystery other then to say that it looks like there will be another book in [...]

    5. Another excellent entry in this series. The only thing I didn't care for was the final twist at the end, setting up the next book, but then I don't care for first chapter previews at the end of books, either.

    6. Autumn, 1880 in the Rocky Mountains' Leadville, CO is the idyllic setting for this excellent murder mystery. Amid winter's approaching chill and ever-present danger on the streets, the high stakes for great wins and losses abound everywhere in the Silver Rush community. Fascinating characters inhabit the nooks and crannies of the town, primarily Inez Stannert, operator and part-owner of the Silver Queen Saloon, along with part-owner African-American Abe Jackson, and part-owner Mark Stannert, Ine [...]

    7. The best of the series (so far). Great characters, great historical detail, great plotting. So many mysteries start strong but get tiresome through the middle but you slog through for the chance of a payoff. That's not the case with What Gold Buys. The story sizzles from the first chapters right through the climax and keeps you turning pages through the denouement. Parker is not afraid to put her characters in realistically messy relationships and situations. She really brings them alive, and yo [...]

    8. I found this book too Predictable and at times, difficult to stay interested in. The story had good bones, but too many ideas were explored: mining, frontier living, prostitution, orphans, spiritualism, yellow journalism, and anatomists-- the act of dissecting bodies gained illegally. Add in women's rights under the law and mixed race children and the book is all over the place. Sad, really, because this has been a good series.

    9. Wow, what a book - although we have to wait a while for each book in this series, Ann Parker does a great job weaving the continued fictional story of Inez, et al. with the true history of the place. I love it and highly recommend this series to anyone who loves good historical fiction from the late 1880s, especially set in Leadville, Colorado. And this one left us hanging, so I can't wait until the next one comes out!

    10. I really enjoyed this murder-mystery set in boomtown Leadville, CO, days. As with most good mysteries, I thought I had it figured out, but didn't see the twist at the end. Parker's characters are interesting and the leads are well-developed. Her female characters are strong and smart. I really enjoyed this book.

    11. Ann Parker's Leadville stories delight the reader with her well-drawn characters and twisting plots. What Gold Buys is no exception. As usual, I was pulled right into the world of saloons, mystery, and the machinations of the men and women who people her books. I can hardly wait for the next one! I highly recommend the whole series of Silver Rush books!

    12. It's not easy to get hold of this book over here in Germany. But friends bought it for me in the US and brought it back after their trip. And finally, finally I could read this book. And I wasn't disappointed. I was thoroughly enjoying getting back to the Leadville of the 1880s and meeting Inez Stannert again, together with some of the characters of the first four books of the series and some new ones, of course.

    13. Loved this book! the author dies a brilliant job recreating late 19th century Leadville and the colorful characters who roamed it's teeming streets. Inez is a strong female protagonist, spunky, good-hearted, smartd able to make her way through some rough territory, both domestically with the men in and out of her life and in the rough-and-tumble neighborhood around the ominously-named Stillborn Alley. I'm afraid I've read two of Parker's five novels out of order, but What Gold Buys makes me want [...]

    14. First Sentence: It was hard to find somewhere close by the crowded silver mining boomtown to practice killing a man, but Antonia was nothing if not determined Inez Stannert and her husband, Mark, are back in Leadville. The wife of their friend and partner in the Silver Queen Saloon is due to deliver their first child but is distressed by the words of fortune-teller Drina Gizzi. Drina’s child, Antonia, has been posing as a boy, Tony, to get work but Inez isn’t fooled. When Drina’s mother is [...]

    15. This is Book #5 in Ann Parker's "Silver Rush Mysteries." And a whole lot happens in this novel, over the space of a week!Inez Stannert has returned to Leadville, CO, with her wayward husband, Mark. They have a tentative "truce": Inez will refrain from pursuing a divorce for one year, allowing Mark to show her he has reformed and still loves her. However, this leaves Inez's relationship with the Reverend Justice Sands somewhat ambiguous as well as Inez's financial dealings with Mrs. "Frisco Flo" [...]

    16. I've enjoyed Ann Parker's Silver Rush mysteries since the very first one, Silver Lies. Parker brings a mining boomtown to boisterous life-- to the point where you can picture yourself amazed at the noise while dodging horse-drawn freight wagons and trying not to lose one of your boots in the mud. Parker has created a main character with a very unconventional lifestyle. Inez Stannert owns a saloon. She's trying to get a divorce from her charming con man husband who abandoned her for almost two ye [...]

    17. Inez Stannert and her husband Mark return to Leadville with an agreement: they will run the Silver Queen saloon together, with their partner Abe Jackson, and Inez will stop the divorce proceedings she had initiated after Mark's disappearance. But things change quickly, starting with the murder and disappearance of a soothsayer, Drina Gizzi. More deaths follow, and Inez is concerned about the safety of Drina's daughter, Antonia, who has been working as a newsboy. Together Inez and Tony put togeth [...]

    18. This book hit a lot of my favorite topics: historical mysteries, characters I care about, an intricate plot. It wasn't fast moving at first - until the murder and then it had a relentless pace. I liked the taut suspense. It didn't matter that it was the fifth book in a series I hadn't read before, I felt right at home. I am looking forward to the next in the series.

    19. Solidly plotted, cleanly written, heavily researched. Could use the tiniest extra bit of attention to proof-reading. Characters are likable and diversity is addressed well.
