OUTRAGE AT BLANCO

It’s True Grit meets Gran Torino in a blazingly original crime novel from Bill Crider, an Edgar and Shamus finalist and a two-time winner of the Anthony Award

On a bloody day in 1887, death came to Blanco, Texas.

Before the sun went down, the livery stable was torched, an outlaw gang robbed the bank, two men were killed, and young newlywed Ellie Taine was raped. One of the dead was the man who planned the robbery – the son of dying, legendary Texas Ranger Jonathan Crossland – the other was Ellie’s husband, an innocent bystander.

The dead don’t know fear.

Ellie is dead inside. She takes a gun and rides out after the desperadoes, cold-blooded and fearless, determined to kill the men who ruined her life. She’s joined by Jonathan Crossland, who only has days left to live… but would rather die in his saddle making amends for his son than rot in his bed. Together, Ellie and Jonathan set out on a mission of vengeance and justice, one that neither of them expects nor hopes to survive.

DESCRIPTION:

Lake Caywood is a place where magic happens, and magic is exactly what the three women in Like A Flip Turn need.

Jenny, having just relocated from the west coast to the east, holds the hope that this new town will result in a new start: one that will allow her to forget a broken relationship and the emotional abuse that went with it. She finds a friend in happy-go-lucky Petey Goode, a quirky young man who seems always to know what a person needs most, whether it be a lift on his tandem bicycle or a song played on his cello. With his help, and the kind words of a few important kids, Jenny takes the steps to get back on her feet.

But Jenny’s not the only one in Lake Caywood struggling to create a new start. Twelve-year-old Lydia exists in a world of denial, unable to face the hand she’s been dealt, and until she’s willing to acknowledge the loss that has been given her, she cannot begin to learn to cope. Fortunately, there is a Ria. A foul-mouthed therapist who knows how to reach the heart of the matter, Lydia is lucky to…

DESCRIPTION:

Meet Kick Lannigan. She’s twenty-one. She can pick any lock. She knows five ways to kill you with a jacket. Get ready to fall in love.

From the author of the critically acclaimed New York Times bestselling Archie Sheridan/Gretchen Lowell thrillers: The first in a nail-biting new series featuring Kick Lannigan, a young woman whose complicated past has given her a very special skill set.

Famously kidnapped at age six, Kick captured America’s hearts when she was rescued five years later. Now, twenty-one, she finds herself unexpectedly entangled in a missing child case that will put her talents to the test.

Trained as a marksman, lock picker, escape artist and bomb maker by her abductor, Kick could not return to the life of the average young girl after her release. So, in lieu of therapy, she mastered martial arts, boxing, and knife throwing; learned how to escape from the trunk of a car, jimmy a pair of handcuffs, and walk without making a sound—all before she was thirteen.

Kick has trained herself to be safe. But then two children go missing in three weeks, and an enigmatic and wealthy former weapons dealer approaches her with a proposition. John Bishop uses his…

DESCRIPTION:

An estimated 5 million Americans have Alzheimer’s disease. That number continues to grow – by 2050 the number of individuals with Alzheimer’s could range from 11.3 million to 16 million.
