One winter evening in 1912, in the woods outside of Boynton, Oklahoma, abusive and drunken Harley Day surprises his son John Lee and the neighbor girl Phoebe Tucker in a lovers' tryst. An hour later, when John Lee walks his beloved home, Phoebe's mother, Alafair Tucker, suspects that something is amiss. How could she know her daughter has been involved in a violent confrontation that will make Phoebe and her beau murder suspects?At supper that evening, over bowls of soupy beans and buttery cornbread, Alafair, her husband Shaw, and their nine lively children, much amused that Phoebe has a boyfriend, discuss the unfortunate Day family. The Days are tormented by their evil father, who beats his wife, mistreats his children, and wastes their money. The mother is helpless, and the eldest daughter, Maggie Ellen, has run away, leaving only 19-year-old John Lee and his 13-year-old sister Naomi to care for the younger children and keep the family from destitution.Then... well, the old buzzard had it coming!This Best Unpublished Mystery of 2004 (The Oklahoma Writers' Federation, Inc.) is the first in a new series. ; An Alafair Tucker Mystery; 0.9 x 8.6 x 5.6 Inches; 226 pages; p; Signed by Author

The Last Sanctuary  (Author Signed), Holden, Craig
9 Holden, Craig The Last Sanctuary (Author Signed)
Delacorte Press 1996 0385312091 / 9780385312097 First Edition; First Printing Hardcover Near Fine in Near Fine dust jacket Signed by Author
Author signed. Dust Jacket now in Mylar Protective Cover. Beautiful scarce collectors grade copy of this book. From the author whose literary debut, The River Sorrow, was hailed by The New York Times as "a haunting, highly original thriller [with] one powerful surprise after another" comes a riveting new novel that could have come from today's headlines--at once a heart-pounding, chillingly realistic thriller and a dark, complex plunge into the human psyche. Rarely has a first novel received the kind of extraordinary critical acclaim garnered by The River Sorrow, Craig Holden's spellbinding tale of an innocent man accused of murder, caught in a nightmare of terror and survival.With The Last Sanctuary, Holden dazzles us once again with a mesmerizing thriller that introduces another good, ordinary man turned fugitive--this time a Gulf War veteran living on the edge of society, falsely accused of murder and plunged into America's dark underworld of armed militias and terrorist cults, running from the cops, federal agents--and from his own tortured soul. The cat and mouse chase across North America's last wilderness--the soaring mountains and glacier-strewn shores of Alaska--is brilliantly cinematic. The complex relationship between the fugitive, Joe Curtis, and his nemesis, a female Native American ATF agent, is superbly rendered and utterly unpredictable. And the novel, at once nerve-shattering and beautifully written, is as topical as Waco and Oklahoma City--and as universal as our own worst nightmares. ; 1.3 x 9.1 x 4.6 Inches; 370 pages; Signed by Author
