9780030509360: Winding Stair

Fort Smith, Arkansas, in 1890, is a haven of justice presiding over thousands of square miles known as the Indian Nation, a land that harbors the most hardened criminals in the country. When a woman is found murdered, young attorney Eben Pay, newly arrived to the territory, is pulled into a posse that follows a trail of blood and destruction. Among the dead he discovers a survivor, the beautiful, traumatized Jennie Thrasher, and the question of what she witnessed hangs like a storm cloud over the investigation. From the trial to the courtroom, Winding Stair is a classic historical novel that brings to vivid life a bygone era.

Review:

" Winding Stair is True Grit for grown-ups... Jones relies on none of the usual Western trappings; he eschews stereotypes... The historical research is seamless-the story never slows down to admit dull exposition. Winding Stair convinces, utterly, that this is how life must have been in that place at that time... a significant and highly entertaining contribution to the popular literature of the American West." (- The New York Times )

"Stunning...excellent...superb...You'll not forget it very soon." (- Chicago Sun-Times )

"A classic Western novel in the finest sense of that often abused term... spare, tough and honest." (- Houston Post )

"Jones is a meticulous craftsman whose dialects, dialogues, settings, and sayings seem so 'right' and natural that one has the satisfying feeling of having read a novel without one 'false note.'" (- San Francisco Sunday Examiner )
