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....

Hangman S Journal. They say that the hangman's job is an art. Positioning the knot under the prisoner's ear is the most important part of the job; get it exactly right and there's not a quiver from the rope except for that little jerk at the drop, when his neck breaks. A few millimetres off, and the man's neck does not break; he dies of strangulation, slowly painfully. Written with rare power and unflinching directness, this is a compelling, often unsettling account of a life of great psychological and moral complexity. The real life story of the Hangman working for the king of Travancore, a small pre-independence South Indian kingdom unfolds in full detail. Each time he returned from the gallows, he told himself that it would be the last time. But he went back, a hundred and seventeen times. He did what he was ordered to do and shut out difficult memories, till an encounter with a writer almost a quarter century after his last hanging forced him to confront his past. This Book takes us into the mind of a Man struggling to come to terms with his Dharma, his conscience, and his shame.

The Hangman. Julia Vargas is a cop with a mission. When she’s not chasing down bad guys, Julia dedicates her time to investigating the Hangman serial killer…the same unsolved case that her father, Jim Vargas, was working on when he supposedly shot and killed himself three decades before. While rumors continue to swirl around her father’s death, Julia attempts to hunt down the truth. The case once again hits dangerously close, however, when a woman’s bones are discovered in a historic downtown home, together with a photograph of Jim and Julia as a young girl. As horrifying as this discovery is, it may just be the break Julia has waited for. Working alongside Tobias Novak, a homicide detective with whom she shares a complicated—and steamy—history, she’s forced to confront her own past even as the Hangman looms in the shadows. But as the mysterious killer circles closer, Julia can feel her own noose begin to tighten…
