In Pale Horse Coming the unforgettable Earl Swagger returns in a searing follow-up to Hot Springs, Stephen Hunter’s New York Times bestselling novel. It once again demonstrates why Hunter has been called “the only modern writer who can lay claim to being Dashiell Hammett’s immediate successor.”

It’s 1951, and the last place in America any sane man wishes to visit is Thebes State Penal Farm (Colored) in Thebes, Mississippi. Up a dark river, surrounded by swamps and impenetrable piney woods, it’s the Old South at its most brutal — a place of violence, racial terror, and even more horrific rumors. Of the few who make the journey, black or white, even fewer return.

But in that year, two men will come to Thebes. The first is Sam Vincent, the former prosecuting attorney of Polk County, Arkansas. With great misgivings, Sam accepts a job from a smooth-talking Chicago lawyer to investigate a disappearance. Sam has heard of Thebes and knows that in the Negro culture he only imperfectly understands, the place has a special resonance of horror.

Sam is a careful man. Before he leaves on this dangerous trip, he confesses his fears to his former investigator Earl Swagger, a Marine hero on Iwo Jima, veteran of the mob wars in Hot Springs, and now a sergeant of the Arkansas State Police.

Earl pledges that if Sam is not back by a certain time, he will come looking for him. Sam will bring his knowledge of the law, his compassion, and his sense of the rational to Thebes, but Earl will bring only his guns.

What they encounter there is something beyond their wildest imaginations for evil. The dying black town is ruled by white deputies on horseback who are more like an occupying army than a police force. Each citizen of the town is in debt to the Store, the one remaining civic institution, and the only escape is over the wild currents of the dark river that drowns as many people as it liberates.

But nothing in the town can prepare Earl for the prison itself where he becomes the first white inmate. It is a site of fear: Run by an aging madman with insane theories of racial purity, it is administered by a brutally efficient Stalin of a guard sergeant known as Bigboy. The convicts call him The Whip Man — he can take a man’s soul with his nine feet of braided catgut.

Both Sam and Earl will be challenged to the limits of their strength by this place and will struggle not only for their own survival, but with deeper questions: What does a man do when confronted with such evil? Can it be remedied? Can it be rectified, redirected, reformed?

Or must it just be destroyed? And if so, where would you find the men to destroy it?

“This plot moves along at a pace that will keep you intrigued.” -Patsy P.

Following the sudden death of a co-worker, psychotherapist Letty Whittaker learns she has “inherited” her colleague’s case load. As professional executor, Letty assumes responsibility for Regina’s clients, including those from Devlin House, the local domestic abuse shelter where Regina had worked . . . and died.

As Letty takes up her duties, she makes some disturbing discoveries: a set of files that Regina had stolen from the shelter; an AWOL resident, missing since the morning after Regina’s death; an ethics complaint Regina had made against an unnamed peer.

Are the files—or the abused women they represented—connected with Regina’s death? Is the missing client on the run from her abusive husband or somebody even scarier? Who was Regina reporting to the state licensing board, and why? And, more importantly, just what kind of trouble has Letty really inherited?

The Whiskey Tide

At the height of Prohibition three sisters in a proper Massachusetts family begin smuggling whiskey from Canada in a desperate bid to keep their newly widowed mother and invalid brother in the family home. The novice rum-runners use the only vessel available to them, the family pleasure schooner.

Kate, the bookworm, hatches the plan, sacrificing her last year at Wellesley to make every grueling and dangerous trip. Rosalie risks her engagement to a clergyman to help on the home front – and tends Kate’s gunshot wound from rum-pirates. Aggie, a dazzling flapper hungry for adventure, uses the undertaking to catch the eye of a man she doesn’t realize is a vicious killer.

Kate’s courage in the face of storms, crooks on both sides of the law, and the treacherous tides of the Bay of Fundy changes her view of the world. It also changes the lives of those around her.

Joe, the teasing Portuguese-Irish fisherman she hires to captain Pa’s Folly earns money enough to provide previously unimagined help to his poor but close-knit family — but must bear the secret burden of falling in love with Kate.

A wealthy old woman dying of loneliness in her cliff-top mansion finds reasons to live. Even Kate’s cousin, shattered in body and spirit by his service in The Great War, is caught in the ripples.

Kate and Aggie’s every success makes their enemies more determined to ruin them. Their gentle cousin becomes an unwitting pawn in a deadly game. The meeting of minds between Kate and Joe, and the mutual attraction they try to deny, forces each to confront the social chasm between them, and the cost of a romance they dare not begin.
