Overview

Short tales about deadly books, by top mystery authors

In frigid Wyoming lies a mystery that stretches back to Nazi Germany.

Lyle and Juan wait outside the lawyer’s house in ski masks, pistols hidden behind their backs. Shortly after dawn, Paul Parker, an aged lawyer, and his old dog step into the cold. The thugs kill the dog, and take the lawyer hostage. Parker’s day has started badly and is going to get much worse.

Once a fine lawyer, Parker’s enthusiasm has slipped with age, and criminals like Lyle are part of the reason for his disillusionment. Years after they last saw each other in court, Lyle is convinced that Parker owes him something. At gunpoint, Lyle and Juan make Parker lead them to the old Angler ranch, to open up a hidden library whose volumes hold the secret to forgotten riches, and the strangest war profiteering scheme to ever come out of the Great Plains.

Book was all of 21 pages! CJ Box has been one of my favorite authors but this one should have been a free sample! Please come back with a book.

This short novella is based on a picture showing American pronghorns being delivered to Hitler's Germany in 1936.  Box has taken this picture and created a creative fictional story around this true premiss. The actual picture is included with the story. Two men have kidnapped a lawyer during a blizzard.  This lawyer defended against one of these men's grandfather's assertion that he was swindled out of money he should have gotten from his old partner because they both owned the airplane that captured and delivered the pronghorn. The interplay of the growing storm, good and evil, and an attitude of 'deserving something' because of past events is made into a fast passed story in the deft hands of C J Box.  Short, but definitely worth the read!!

Is this some kind of a Joke? I got a teaser on my “NOOK” for a bargain book and loaded the sample of 27 pages. It seemed to be a really good read, so I bought it along with a few others. I never could get more than the 27 page sample loaded, so I took it to the customer service desk of my B&N store.  They tried but could not get the book to load on my reader. Finally they gave in and called a special number that stores have to pass complaints on to the great B&N HQ. The local store could not get them to help. They want to give me my money back but I want the book that B&N hooked me on.
