This captivating thriller employs a play within a play theme in a singularly exciting manner. At first, it seems to be the usual "Agatha Christie" type play two couples lured to a remote Italian villa to be murdered one by one. It is only when this play is well advanced that we learn we are watching actors rehearsing their own murder mystery. It is shortly after this, when two of these actors have been murdered in the same manner as the characters in their own play, that the twists and turns begin to tease the audience.3 women, 3 men
Have you seen the dark, strange corners of this big ol' stretch'a land called the West? Sure, you've heard the stories of gunfights and gold rushes, but that ain't the half of it. Not by far. Have you met Dr. Mirablis and his miraculous elixir re-vitae? Or heard the real story of the Ghost Dance and the man they call Walking Wolf? How about Sam Hell, the Dark Ranger with a taste for blood? Looks like you need yourself an education, and there ain't no teacher better than Nancy A. Collins. Dead Man's Hand collects her acclaimed novellas "Walking Wolf" and "Lynch," the short stories "Calaverada" and "The Tortuga Hill Gang's Last Ride," and completes the five-card draw with the all-new vampire Western novella "Hell Come Sundown." The West has never been wilder ... or weirder. Book jacket.

Maxwell.The twitchy, middle-aged guy has bad luck written all over him.

Next, Marvin's former girlfriend and her new boyfriend are found chopped to death. All clues point to Amos's old nemesis, Lester Dowd, the Fireman, who is rumored to be back in town with an ax to grind.When Amos finds five playing cards shoved under his office door, he knows the Dead Man's Hand is a not-so subtle warning that he may be the Fireman's next victim. However, Dowd has waited a decade for his revenge and isn't about to put all his cards on the table yet. But even the psychotic Fireman is unprepared for what little Marvin has hidden up his sleeve.Dead Man's Hand is an ace of a mystery in which the pace is brisk, the chapters short, and where there's more than one joker in the deck.
It’s All Just a Show...Right? “This is an authentic old west ghost town, son. Around these parts the dead don’t stay dead.” Nick Caden’s vacation at Deadwood Canyon Ghost Town takes a deadly turn toward trouble when the fifteen-year-old finds himself trapped in a livery stable with the infamous outlaw Jesse James. The shooter whirls, aims and... vanishes. Great theatrics, Nick thinks, except now he’s alone in the hayloft with the bullet-riddled body of Billy the Kid. And by the time the sheriff arrives, the body disappears. Soon Nick is caught in a deadly chase—from an abandoned gold mine, through forbidden buffalo hunting grounds, and across Rattlesnake Gulch. Around every turn he finds another suspect. Will Nick solve the murder? Will his parents have him committed? Or will the town's infatuation with Hollywood theatrics conceal the real truth about souls, spirits and the destiny that awaits those who die.
