Overview

A ROLLICKING RIDE THROUGH THE SOUTHWEST’S UNRULY PAST—WITH GPS COORDINATES, PHOTOS AND MORE!



The line between history and mythology is razor thin—and the American Southwest often erases the line altogether. We might never disentangle crime-fact from fiction, but this book will transport you to Billy the Kid’s real-life stomping grounds, legendary Tombstone, the childhood home of one of the worst al Qaeda terrorists, and the scenes of dozens of crimes throughout Arizona and New Mexico’s history.



OUTLAW SOUTHWEST continues the series that critics, true-crime fans, historians, and travelers have hailed as “thorough and unflinching” and “the best damn crime travel series ever published!” Dozens of fascinating stories in OUTLAW SOUTHWEST are told in the same fast-paced, enthralling voice that’s made Ron Franscell one of America’s most beloved crime writers … and the Crime Buff’s Guides a three-time winner of the TrueCrimeZine.com Book of the Year!

“It’s a breezy, guilty-pleasure read—perfect for summer vacations because you can put it down and pick it up without losing your place (but you won’t want to put it down). For those of who week true-crime stories, it’s a fascinating look at the dark side.”—TUCSON (AZ) SENTINEL



“Well researched … Armchair detectives will enjoy the tales, but the book’s purpose is to take the reader to the scene of the crime.”—ALBUQUERQUE JOURNAL

About the Author

Ron Franscell's writing has been compared to Truman Capote, Charles Frazier and Robert Olen Butler--diverse, poetic, evocative and muscular. This lifelong newspaperman burst onto the literary scene in 1998 with his first novel ANGEL FIRE, a poignant, mythic tale of two brothers wrestling with personal ghosts in the small town where they grew up. ANGEL FIRE was subsequently named among the San Francisco Chronicle's 100 Best Novels of the 20th Century West. He was a senior writer for the Denver Post. He has written true crime, mystery/thrillers and quirky travel guides, and his books have won rave reviews from true-crime legends Ann Rule, Vincent Bugliosi and Gerry Spence.
