Book Description: Mainstream Publishing, United Kingdom, 2002. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. 198 x 129 mm. Brand New Book. In the 1960s Jimmy Evans was one of Britain s leading safe-blowers, his own boss in an era when London s underworld was dominated by parasitical gangs such as the Krays and Richardsons. He had no gang affiliations, yet the Kray Twins respected him and treated him as an equal. To Jimmy they were just Mickey Mouse Mobsters . In 1964 Jimmy s world fell apart. He discovered that his wife was having an affair with George Foreman, brother of the notorious gangland killer, Freddie Foreman. Caring nothing for Brown Bread Fred s lethal reputation, Jimmy shotgunned George at his front door, depriving him of his manhood. Among the criminal fraternity this should have been accepted as a crime passionelle , but instead Freddie Foreman embarked on a bloody 10 year vendetta that embraced murder, assassination and arson. Foreman exploited his corrupt relationship with two leading Scotland Yard detectives who were his handlers, protectors and friends. As a result Jimmy was falsely branded Jack The Stripper , the perpetuator of the infamous Nude Murders . Bookseller Inventory # AB99781840186741

Book Description: University of North Texas Press,U.S., United States, 2012. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 229 x 152 mm. Brand New Book. In the early 1900s, two families in Scurry and Kent counties in West Texas united in a marriage of fourteen-year-old Gladys Johnson to twenty-one-year-old Ed Sims. Billy Johnson, the father, set up Gladys and Ed on a ranch, and the young couple had two daughters. But Gladys was headstrong and willful, and Ed drank too much, and both sought affection outside their marriage. A nasty divorce ensued, and Gladys moved with her girls to her father s luxurious ranch house, where she soon fell in love with famed Texas Ranger Frank Hamer. When Ed tried to take his daughters for a prearranged Christmas visit in 1916, Gladys and her brother Sid shot him dead on the Snyder square teeming with shoppers. One of the best lawyers in West Texas, Judge Cullen Higgins (son of the old feudist Pink Higgins) managed to win acquittal for both Gladys and Sid. In the tradition of Texas feudists since the 1840s, the Sims family sought revenge. Sims son-in-law, Gee McMeans, led an attack in Sweetwater and shot Billy Johnson s bodyguard, Frank Hamer, twice, while Gladys--by now Mrs. Hamer--fired at another assassin. Hamer shot back, killed McMeans, and was no-billed on the spot by a grand jury watching the shootout through a window. An attempt against Billy Johnson failed, but a three-man team shotgunned the widely respected Cullen Higgins. Texas Rangers and other lawmen caught one of the assassins, extracted a confession, and then prompted his suicide in a Sweetwater jail cell. Number Nine: A.C. Greene Series.

Book Description: Bantam, 1994. MM. Book Condition: Very Good. 055356532X 055356532X From Publishers Weekly In Cook's 11th novel (among them Edgar nominees Blood Innocents and Sacrificial Ground ), the violence is all in the past (save for a car crash) but the level of terror is daunting. Fortyish narrator Steve Farris is an architect who lives with his wife and son in the suburbs. For him architecture "is a world which has no room for chance," but one that changes drastically when he is contacted by Rebecca Soltero, who wants to interview him for a book she's writing about men who murdered their families. For in 1959 Steve's father fatally shotgunned his wife and their teenage daughter and son, then vanished. Nine-year-old Stevie, desperately missing his gifted 16-year-old sister, managed to block out all thoughts about the deaths. Now Rebecca lures him into talking, and he is forced to acknowledge the questions that have haunted his subconscious mind: Did his father mean to kill him, too? What secret did his father and his sister share? The novel keeps shifting back and forth in time, from the present to "that last year" to the years before Steve's birth to the immediate aftermath of the deaths, but always comes back to the horrible deed--the excruciating how and the unanswerable why. The deceptively simple writing is harrowing as Steve allows his mind to probe more deeply, examining remembered looks, words and nuances. Terror builds and the ending to this chilling study in psychological suspense is a dizzying jolt. Copyright 1993 Reed Business Information, Inc. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title. From Kirkus Reviews On November 19, 1959, William Patrick Farris, age 44, picked up a rifle, walked into his surly son Jamie's room and shot him, walked down the corridor and killed his much-loved daughter Laura, a pretty teenager, then tracked his wife Dottie as she ran frantically from room to room and murdered her as she cowered in the basement. He then got in his car and drove away, never to be seen again. Nine-year-old Stevie, playing at a friend's house, was the sole family member to escape the slaughter; and for over 30 years now he's been repressing the details of it, and the horror, as he's carved out a niche for himself in the architectural offices of Simpson and Lowe, gotten married, and himself become the father of a son who's now nine years old. At this point author Rebecca Soltero contacts him: his father's case is one of five she is including in her work on men who kill their families. In interview after interview, she and Stephen Farris piece together what his father did and why, and in each memory that surfaces, the present Farris family situation appears grimmer, darker, more troubled, inexorably leading to the dissolution of Stephen's family and his shattering search for and confrontation with his father in Spain. Cook (The City When it Rains, Evidence of Blood, etc.), often given to literary theatrics, here displays an impressive narrative simplicity and a therapist's insightfulness, producing a finely crafted psychological crime-fare. -- Copyright ?1993, Kirkus Associates, LP.

"to Sheldon thanks for for much help. all best" Neil McMahon.McMahon (Revolution No. 9 and three other thrillers starring Dr. Carroll Monks) delivers his finest achievement to date with this beautifully written stand-alone set in contemporary Montana. Hugh Davoren, a former journalist and ex-boxer now doing construction near where he grew up outside Helena, is working on the building of a massive residence on the old Pettyjohn homestead, recently purchased by an East Coast businessman, Wesley Balcomb. Davoren keeps his head low and does his job, until he comes across two thoroughbred horses unceremoniously shotgunned and buried in the site trash dump. Next thing he knows, Davoren's thrown in jail overnight on a trumped-up charge. What kind of shady operation is Balcomb running, and why is he suddenly so determined to ruin Davoren's life? Aided by his co-worker and friend, "Madbird," a hardcase Blackfoot Indian and Vietnam vet, Davoren grapples with a host of antagonists, including Kirk Pettyjohn, old man Pettyjohn's crack-addict son, and an assassin known as John Doe. A natural storyteller, McMahon is sure to appeal to fans of James Crumley and Jim Harrison. Bookseller Inventory #005686. Signed by Author(s). Bookseller Inventory # 005686

Book Description: Coach House Books. PAPER. Book Condition: NEW. This collection of 1600 pseudohaikus goes down like potato chips. What's a pseudohaiku? It's a poem of pure indulgence, a three-liner without the constraint, the pretension or the 5/7/5 syllable form. The subject matter? Relationships, cats, insecurities - themes that recur and build into a pulsing non-linear narrative. Easily digestible yet remarkably acute, The World is a Heartbreaker is a catalogue of shotgunned emotions and pointed bite-sized observations. Sometimes sexy, sometimes scandalous, but always three lines long. There are no pleasures like the guilty ones. 160pp. Bookseller Inventory # _1552451534

Roberts is a confident writer who knows his character well and who has made him complex enough to be interesting. -- Mostly MurderRoberts certainly creates a sense of place. Cleveland rings true--and hes especially skillful in creating real moral and ethical choices for his characters. -- The Plain DealerHotshot young Cleveland lawyer Joel Kerner is shotgunned to death on a lonely beach on the Caribbean island of San Carlos. The local police are inept, and the Cleveland cops cant operate outside their jurisdiction, so Kerners sister Patrice comes to private eye Milan Jacovich (its pronounced MY-lan YOCK-ovich) to discover the truth about her brothers murder. Milan flies to San Carlos to investigate--a pleasant three-day working vacation that doesnt keep him from getting stabbed in an alley and rousted by a high-level international cop. Back in Cleveland, he asks his best friend, homicide lieutenant Marko Meglich, for some unofficial help. But he runs up against Kerners angry father, a world-famous labor attorney, along with the bevy of beautiful women Joel Kerner left behind and a powerful union leader known around town as The Irish. Milan marches forward to solve the case, though it will eventually cause him a tragic and insupportable personal loss. This item ships from multiple locations.

Book Description: Paperback. Book Condition: New. Paperback. In the early 1900s, two families in Scurry and Kent counties in West Texas united in a marriage of fourteen-year-old Gladys Johnson to twenty-one-year-old Ed Sims. Billy Johnson, the father, set up Gladys and Ed on a ranch, and the young couple had two daughters. But Gladys was headstrong and willful, and Ed drank too much, and both sought affection outside their marriage. A nasty divorce ensued, and Gladys moved with her girls to her fathers luxurious ranch house, where she soon fell in love with famed Texas Ranger Frank Hamer. When Ed tried to take his daughters for a prearranged Christmas visit in 1916, Gladys and her brother Sid shot him dead on the Snyder square teeming with shoppers. One of the best lawyers in West Texas, Judge Cullen Higgins (son of the old feudist Pink Higgins) managed to win acquittal for both Gladys and Sid. In the tradition of Texas feudists since the 1840s, the Sims family sought revenge. Sims son-in-law, Gee McMeans, led an attack in Sweetwater and shot Billy Johnsons bodyguard, Frank Hamer, twice, while Gladysby now Mrs. Hamerfired at another assassin. Hamer shot back, killed McMeans, and was no-billed on the spot by a grand jury watching the shootout through a window. An attempt against Billy Johnson failed, but a three-man team shotgunned the widely respected Cullen Higgins. Texas Rangers and other lawmen caught one of the assassins, extracted a confession, and then prompted his suicide in a Sweetwater jail cell. Number Nine: A. C.

Book Description: Paperback. Book Condition: New. This item is printed on demand. Paperback. The Vampire Kitty-cat Chronicles turns vampire mythology on its head when Patch, a calico tomcat, is turned into breakfast--and a vampire kitty-cat--by a starving vampire. Narrated by Patch in a deliciously snarky cat take on the world, Patch struggles to find a new life, as it were. In the process, hes almost skewered with a stake by a mob with blazing torches, tried for murder, nearly crunched by a seven-foot undead guy, just about shotgunned into undead pieces, comes inches from having his tail cut off and seconds from being fried by the sun, and kidnapped twice. Oh, yeah, and turned into a (shudder) politician. On the other paw, he does hook up with that sweet Siamese, and it looks like hes on the way to winning that election . . .
