The Last Hangman. Advanced Strategic Energy Inc are no longer welcome in the Niger Delta after the company was responsible for causing an environmental disaster on a massive scale. Local tribal affairs and pleas to stop polluting the region were senselessly ignored and now the top executives are in deep trouble. When an innocent lawsuit for racial discrimination is filed against the company by a former employee, Desmon Haynes, the plot takes a brilliant twist to connect the legal wrangle with the top oilmen to unravel the treacherous and murderous dealings undertaken during their ill-fated Nigeria operation. Sensationally, it also reveals another savage past in the most bizarre way; the details of such savagery would stun the whole of America and beyond! The reader is taken through a web of lies, deceit, murder and racial hatred as the oilmen try to cover up their past wrongdoings. Contract murders are in place and it's a race against time, for some it's a battle for life or death....

The Hangman S Song. [headline] A DETECTIVE INSPECTOR McLEAN NOVEL “Crime fiction’s next big thing . . . Combines old-fashioned sleuthing with supernatural intuition.” — Sunday Telegraph The body of a man is found hanging in an empty house. To the Edinburgh police force, this appears to be a simple suicide case. But something about the scene strikes Detective Inspector Tony McLean as off. Days later another body is found hanging from an identical rope, with a noose tied in the identical way. McLean is convinced that these people are either being murdered or somehow coerced into suicide. Then a third body is found. Under pressure from his superiors to wrap the case up quickly and neatly, McLean must also deal with the fallout of his last big investigation and complications in his personal life. But the deeper he digs, the more he comes to believe that something dark and sinister is stalking Edinburgh’s streets. Will he be able to stop it before someone else succumbs to the hangman’s song? “Engrossing.” — Publishers Weekly [AU PHOTO] JAMES OSWALD is the author of the Detective Inspector McLean series of crime novels. A crime writer by night, during the day he runs a 350-acre livestock farm in North East Fife, Scotland, where he raises Highland cattle and sheep.

The Hangman S Hymn. When homeless and jobless, Simon Cotterill joins a hangman's crew replacing a man who was himself sent to the gibbet, he feels rejected even by the desperate men he now works with. Until he learns the secret of how a hanged man can walk away from his own grave. Meanwhile from the forest paths around Gloucester, young women are disappearing. When a disfigured corpse is found, the mayor suspects a coven of witches is preying on vulnerable souls, and arrests three hideous hags. Afraid the town's prosperity could suffer from a reputation for witchcraft, he holds a midnight trial that condemns the women. They are taken to be hanged. But the unearthly sounds of the forest at night frighten even the hangmen, and a violent storm drives them to seek shelter, leaving the witches swinging from the gibbet tree. The next morning their bodies are gone. Then, one by one, every person who took part in the trial is found dead, and Simon is forced into hiding to save his own life...

Hangman S Holiday. Short stories featuring sleuths Peter Wimsey and Montague Egg, confronting menaces from purloined pearls to poisoned port. In the annals of mystery writing, Lord Peter Wimsey and Montague Egg are among the most memorable detectives. Lord Peter—noble by birth, brilliant by nature—is a fly in the ointment of criminals across Britain, turning up whenever the police ask him to lend his quick wit and keen eye to an investigation. Montague Egg is a free-spirited figure, a traveling wine salesman with an unfortunate habit of stumbling over murder scenes. Both are inimitably charming, and neither has ever failed to catch his man. In this collection of stories featuring the two detectives, plus a couple of bonus tales, the mystery maven’s evocation of England between the wars—and her chilling puzzles—remain as engaging as ever. Hangman’s Holiday is the 9th book in the Lord Peter Wimsey Mysteries, but you may enjoy the series by reading the books in any order. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Dorothy L. Sayers including rare images from the Marion E. Wade Center at Wheaton College.
