Description du produit

Présentation de l'éditeur

A dying convict’s last request thrusts small-town newspaperman Jefferson Morgan into a deadly maelstrom as he explores a fifty-year-old case of child murder — a wound his town still isn’t ready to scrape open. Under the heaviest deadline of his life, and amid threats from unexpected foes, Morgan must struggle with his own conscience to tell a story no matter the consequences, dig deep into the town’s past, and unveil a killer who’s managed to remain hidden in plain sight for almost 50 years.

Now a true crime bestseller, Ron Franscell began his crime-writing career with crime fiction. THE DEADLINE was his first mystery featuring newspaperman Jefferson Morgan, followed by its sequel, THE OBITUARY.

His writing has been compared to Truman Capote, Robert Olen Butler, Norman McLean, Cormac McCarthy and Charles Frazier. Now, meet the author. Ron grew up in Wyoming. A lifelong journalist, he worked for newspapers in Wyoming, New Mexico and California’s Bay Area before hitting the road in one of American journalism’s best beats, covering the evolution of the American West as a senior writer for the Denver Post. Shortly after 9/11, he was dispatched by the Post to cover the Middle East during the first few months of the Afghan war. In 2004, he became the managing editor for the Beaumont (TX) Enterprise, where he covered the devastation of Hurricane Rita from inside the storm. He now lives in San Antonio, Texas. His book reviews and essays are regularly published in many of America’s biggest and best newspapers, such as the Washington Post, Chicago Sun-Times, San Francisco Chronicle, Denver Post, San Jose Mercury-News, St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel and others.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Excellent story!! 22 mai 2015
Par Vicky Carruth - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
In this book we meet Jefferson Morgan, a reporter who had been working for 18 years at the Chicago Tribune. After the illness & then death of his young son Bridger, Morgan & his wife Claire decide to leave Chicago behind. They move back to Morgan's small hometown of Winchester, Wyoming & purchase the small newspaper business he had worked at as a boy!
Running a business in a small town is never easy, but it seems like running the Bullet has its difficulties meeting it's weekly DEADLINE on time!
Then one day in comes an old convicted & dying man named Newly Gilmartin. Gilmartin had spent most of his life in prison for the murder of a young girl many years ago & was now asking Morgan to clear his name before he dies! ( with the looks of it, there seems to be little time left for Gilmartin)
Will Jefferson take on the challenge? After all..why would Gilmartin have confessed to a murder if he didn't do it? This may be the most important DEADLINE that Jefferson has to beat! Can he do it??
I REALLY enjoyed this Jefferson Morgan story and was happy that the next story The OBITUARY was also full of intrigue & mystery!

Even though I usually read true crime, I really enjoyed this book.Ron has a unique knack for keeping you in suspense....

The characters come alive in this fantastic book....Jefferson and ClMorgan decided to move back to his home town after the death of their son "Bridger. " to try to get a fresh start..Jefferson never imagined that an old man, imprisoned for most of his life, would seek his help in exonerating his name for the crime of murder in 1946 of a little girl they called Aimee Little Spotted Horse.Jefferson didn't believe him at first but after checking out a few things that make him believe Neeley.Anyway I dont want to ruin the story for you.But it's an amazing story.I loved it.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Fresh, Never-a-Dull Moment Mystery, Masterfully Woven! 20 mai 2015
Par Kat - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
Chicago newspaper reporter Jeff Morgan leaves the big city behind to buy the weekly newspaper in his hometown, a premise that holds no hint of the wild, unpredictable journey author Ron Franscell has planned for his reader. Several subplots are deliciously intertwined and masterfully written by Franscell. The protagonist pours his heart into solving a mystery and fulfilling a request made by an ex-con who will succumb to terminal cancer at any time. In the process, old resentments, buried secrets and small-town power plays work to keep Jeff from seeing that justice is done. Just when the reader has identified "the bad guys," the story takes another direction, and Franscell proves again what a gripping story he has cobbled together. His writing lacks the commercialism of many authors; Franscell is head and shoulders above most.

A young newspaper reporter, known for his ability to ferret out the truth returns to the place of his youth to purchase and edit the small town newspaper in which he had worked. Shortly after his arrival he is approached by a very ill recently released state prisoner. The old man has only days to live, and his only request is that the young newspaper man clear his name and find the person responsible for the horrible murder of which he was falsely accused and imprisoned. As the young protagonist delves into the past he meets with serious obstacles, including a threat to him and his wife. Who is trying to keep the truth from surfacing, and just how far will they go to make sure that it never does? The reader will be surprised. Still waters run deep, especially when they are trying to wash away a murder.

A small town newspaper publisher unravels the brutal murder of a young Indian girl while struggling to keep the local hometown weekly sheet he's just purchased from collapsing. The quirky cast of townspeople ground the book and add flavor as Jefferson Morgan pieces together the tragic story that clears the name of a crusty old man imprisoned for the crime 50 years earlier. Really enjoyed the writing style of this author, and his talent of being able to drop you into the thick of it. Dialog really rang true; almost felt like I was eavesdropping on people I'd known for awhile. Good mystery and very enjoyable read.
