It’s been a privilege and a pleasure to share travel and other stories with you. Now I’m excited to share some writing news as well! I’m happy to announce today’s re-release of my critically-acclaimed Pinnacle Peak mystery series by Virage Press.

Four titles–Family Claims, Spurred Ambition, Heir Apparent, and False Fortune—are available in ebook and paperback. Set in the imaginary town of Pinnacle Peak, Arizona, the series features lawyers and extreme sports enthusiasts Hannah Dain and Joe McGuinness.

It’s a mystery series meant to be read in order; the first book is FAMILY CLAIMS. Each of the books is also available in paperback.

Those who buy the ebook versions will also receive bonus content: articles from Mystery Scene magazine on how I researched each of the sports (long-distance cycling, rock climbing, team roping, kayak paddling) featured in the books.

Here are some of the nice things fellow writers and reviewers had to say about the Pinnacle Peak series:

“This book sizzles and it’s not just the Arizona heat!”
Sue Grafton

“Twist Phelan knows of what she writes. Family Claims is as full as a lawyer’s briefcase with character and good storytelling. Phelan is on her way!”
Michael Connelly Books

“Another winner! …Phelan expertly combines the legal, the physical, and the emotional for a completely satisfying drama.” 
Margaret Maron

“Phelan…vividly evokes the Arizona desert and thrills with convincing legal detail…Hannah [Dain] makes a sympathetic and appealing heroine likely to have an interesting future.”
Publishers Weekly

“Fans of extreme sports will admire Phelan’s protagonist, lawyer and athlete Hannah Dain, but even those more at home on the couch will still enjoy the brainy heroine…The sports angle makes an intriguing frame, but it’s not really necessary to the success of this series, which boasts a nice mix of desert atmosphere and appealing characters.”

“Hannah Dain could probably whip any wimpy lawyer hero created by the likes of John Grisham or Lisa Scottoline with one arm tied behind her back…[Phelan] keeps us a few breaths short of hyperventilation once again.”
Chicago Tribune
