Four brothers team up to save one of them from the gallows in this Western by the authors of the New York Times–bestselling Smoke Jensen series. The Hangman Cometh . . . When a farmer’s wife is murdered, an innocent man is accused: Patrick O'Brien. The book-loving brother had shared his love of literature with the woman, but her husband claims she spurned Pat’s advances and that's why he killed her. Now it looks like Patrick will swing from the gallows—especially after his lawyer is targeted, too. Pat’s brothers try to track down the real killer, but time is running out. A team of hired guns has come to town, and they’re choking the family ranch like a noose. For the brothers O’Brien, it’s judgment day. And justice will be served—in a hellstorm of blood and bullets . . .

In our own minds, we believe that we are perfect. The reality is: we are. Until we make that one tainted decision against wisdom that moves us from perfection to imperfection. This applies to all of us. Most of us are familiar with the story of that one angel who got in trouble for doing something bad, right? But what about the angel that gets in trouble for doing something good? You’ve been there; your good intentions were mistaken for something totally contrary to what you set out to do? Well, you are not alone. Angels make mistakes too.

The dreams arrive, un-invited. Eli Baker is visited by the dead, and they always have one request of him: find out the truth about their deaths. Melanie Hooper is missing and yet, as an orphan, there is no one missing Melanie Hooper. Her co-workers find it odd that she left, and unsettling for sure, but she is, after all, an adult, and perhaps she simply decided to start a new life somewhere else. With no body or suspicious circumstances to go by, the Seattle police do not consider Melanie's disappearance to be sinister at all. But Eli Baker has dreams, and Melanie Hooper has visited him in one, along with four other orphans who are also missing. The search is on, and Eli Baker is the right man to delve into the case of the missing orphans. However, Eli soon finds that evil acts are not only performed by evil men, but by Evil itself. Eli, his girlfriend Liz, and his deadly friend Striker are about to face off against a foe the likes of which they have never encountered. "Shadows Over A Hangman's Noose" is the third in the "Shadows" series. It will leave you questioning everything you thought you knew about the sinister shadows of life. William D.

Jay Robert Nash knows crime, not speculatively or academically but reportorially, at the level of the most intense and thorough investigative journalism. Some 50,000 entries in six volumes range from biblical times through 1988, and include a dictionary volume and an index volume. The entries present the most notable and important international criminal cases, persons, places, and events, as well as important persons in the fields of law enforcement, criminal justice, the judiciary, criminology, forensic medicine, pathology, penology, and criminal psychiatry and psychology. They also cover works of drama, fiction, film, poetry, and song, explaining the real-life role models for such works. Nash does fall prey to some common and insidious myths: his dictionary, for example, lists anarchism, anarcho-syndicalism, and anarchy, but not capitalism, which is clearly more intimately (i.e. structurally) and extensively connected with crime and criminality. But the areas he knows, he knows better than just about anyone else. Note: this is a continuity series encyclopedia, offering annual editions, the year 1989 to be covered in CrimeBook's 1990 annual.

'Measuring out the rope, testing it, tying the knots--I have learnt to do these things well, because I concentrate on doing them well. I concentrate on them as best as I can, because if I don't my mind will finds its ways to the man about to die, and then I will have no peace.' For over three decades, Janardhan Pillai was the arathar, the hangman, on call by the prison authorities in the kingdom of Travancore and, after Independence, the states of Kerala and Tamil Nadu. After the courts had passed the sentence, it was left to him to put the condemned man to death, expertly, swiftly. Each time he returned from the gallows, he told himself that it would be the last time. But he went back, a hundred and seventeen times. Based on Pillai's life, Hangman's Journal draws from his diaries and the author's interviews with him. A work of rare power written in the first person, it takes us into the mind of a man struggling to come to terms with his dharma, his conscience, and his shame. There are clinical details of the rituals connected with hanging over half a century ago, and startling insights into the nature of crime and the concept of retribution. account of a life of great psychological and moral complexity.

Confident that the American rebellion would be crushed in 1777, Britain devised a bold new strategy. Turning its attention to the frontiers, especially those of western New York, Pennsylvania, and Virginia, Britain enlisted its provincial rangers, Tories, and allied warriors from the Iroquois Confederacy, to wage a brutal backwoods war. Burgoyne's defeat at Saratoga went shock waves through the British command, but the efforts along the frontier appeared to be impairing the American ability to conduct the war. Following massacres at the colonial settlements of Wyoming, Pa., and Cherry Valley, N.Y., the Continental Congress persuaded General Washington to conduct a decisive offensive to end the threat. Brewing for years, the conflict between the Iroquois and colonists would now reach its deadly climax. The campaign ended the political and military influence of the Iroquois and sealed Britain's fateful decision to seek victory in the south.--From publisher description.
