About this Item: BRILLIANCE AUDIO, 2016. CD-Audio. Condition: New. Unabridged. Language: English . Brand New. On a cold January morning in 1973, inside a stately old house in Reykjavik, blood pools around Jacob Kieler Junior from a fatal gunshot wound to his chest. Detective Johann Palsson, an expert in the emerging field of forensics, is called to the scene and soon discovers something more unsettling than the murder itself: the deceased s father, Jacob Kieler Senior, a railroad engineer, was shot to death in the same living room nearly thirty years earlier. The case was officially closed as a botched robbery. Palsson soon uncovers diaries that portray Kieler Senior as an ambitious man dedicated to bringing the railroad to Iceland no matter the cost. Sensing a deeper and darker mystery afoot, the detective and his colleagues piece together through the elder Kieler s diaries a family history rich with deceit. Seller Inventory # BRI9781531881733

Good In Slightly Worn Wrappers. 183 pages. paperback. M-3051. FROM THE PUBLISHER - A curious blonde, a suspicious brunette and a psychopathic killer. A BUM, A BLONDE, and A BRUNETTE. The bum fell or was thrown off a freight. He died. Hardly worth investigating. The blonde reported the loss of two bags. Value: about $75. Small potatoes. The brunette was different. She claimed the bum was her father, that he owned a uranium mine and that he'd been murdered. Then the blonde confessed that the missing baggage had contained $60,000 worth of diamonds. The two cases merged and the railroad dicks found themselves in the middle. When the killer struck again, they knew they'd have to close in fast or have still more corpses to bury. inventory #37145.

About this Item: Createspace Independent Publishing Platform, United States, 2015. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. *Includes pictures *Includes accounts of the murder and trial *Includes online resources and a bibliography for further reading *Includes a table of contents Under the same circumstances, I d kill him tomorrow. - Harry Thaw It reads like a modern day Lifetime movie: two talented, popular and wealthy men both fall in love with the same beautiful but somewhat tarnished girl. One had a long history of mental illness, the other was considered an architectural genius. The inevitable showdown, complete with a very public murder, took place in one of the most fashionable restaurants in the world. Although it reads like a movie or soap opera, it was an all too true story that culminated with the 1907 trial of the century, when railroad tycoon Harry Thaw, the husband of famous model Evelyn Nesbit, was prosecuted for killing renowned architect Stanford White, his wife s former lover. Some say that it was such a shocking event that it actually helped speed the end of the Gilded Age. In the late 19th century, Cornelius The Commodore Vanderbilt sold his stake in Madison Square Garden to J.P. Morgan, who subsequently hired Stanford White to construct a new arena in its place. At the time he was commissioned to draw up plans for the new Garden, White was a partner with McKim, Mead White, a firm that had designed some of New York s most beautiful mansions, including the Fifth Avenue homes of the Vanderbilt s and the Astor s. However, in addition to designing the Garden and other similar spaces, he also designed a secret hideaway in his own home where an aspiring young dancer, 16 year old Evelyn Nesbit, would entertain him during sexually inappropriate meetings. This and other dalliances would later lead to one of the most notorious events in the Garden s history. On a warm evening in late June 1906, millionaire Harry K. Thaw, who had by this time married Nesbit, approached White while he watched the show Mam zelle Champagne in the roof garden theater on top of Madison Square Garden. Pulling out a pistol, he shot White three times in the head at point blank range. At first, those in the theater thought it was a prank, but when the smoke cleared and White s wound became visible, they knew they had just witnessed something horrific. From the beginning, the crime had everything, including lurid sex, a shocking murder, and an insanity plea, and as a result, both Thaw and White were put on trial in the papers and the court. White s son would later complain, On the night of June 25th, 1906, while attending a performance at Madison Square Garden, Stanford White was shot from behind [by] a crazed profligate whose great wealth was used to besmirch his victim s memory during the series of notorious trials that ensued. Eventually, Thaw was declared innocent by reason of insanity and sentenced to time in a mental hospital, and in the meantime, White s reputation was thoroughly disgraced, leading Collier s Richard Harding Davis to counter, Since his death White has been described as a satyr. To answer this by saying that he was a great architect is not to answer at all.what is more important is that he was a most kindhearted, most considerate, gentle and manly man, who could no more have done the things attributed to him than he could have roasted a baby on a spit. Big in mind and in body, he was incapable of little meanness. He admired a beautiful woman as he admired every other beautiful thing God has given us; and his delight over one was as keen, as boyish, as grateful over any others. Despite the murder of White and one of the 20th century s first cases to be billed as the Trial of the Century, the new Madison Square Garden continued to play host to just about every kind of event, and even today Madison Square Garden remains known as The World s Most Famous Arena. The Trial of the Century: Evelyn Nesbit and the Murder of Stanford White chronicles the infamous crime and the notorious trial. Seller Inventory # APC9781517518455

About this Item: Forgotten Books, 2017. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Excerpt from The Locomotive, Vol. 23: January, 1902 In the course of time Fury became a little more peaceable and would allow a few favored acquaintances around the place; but no stranger ever got so much as one foot inside the inclosure without hastening to take it out again before the dog could fasten to it. Fury earned his salary. One day a wandering pig came nosing around the inclosure, found a loose place in the fence, and made his way in. Now the West Virginian breed of pig is not the fat, lazy; and inert porker of the farmyard. He is a lean, razor-backed, sinewy animal who has had to make his own way in the world for so long that he is thoroughly equipped to take care Of himself. The only thing he considers it worth while to get out Of the way of is a railroad train, and he sometimes contests the right of way with that, under which circumstances both train and pig commonly leave the track together. Either Fury didn t understand the nature of the invader, or his lordly career had pu? ed him up with an undue sense of his own abilities. With a snarl of concentrated rage he made for the trespasser, and launched his powerful body like a thunderbolt straight at piggy s throat. There was a wild clamor Of grunts, squeals, growls, and howls that brought Mr. Stewart and the rest out in haste. All they could see was a mad whirl of dust and writhing bodies. Then a streak emerged from the whirl. It was Fury. Away he went, yelling murder at every leap, and the pig after him. After two circuits Of the yard, Fury noted the hole in the fence, and with a yelp of mingled joy and shame started through it. It was more of a squeeze for piggy, but he got through, too. There was no doubt about his intentions; he meant murder. Fury realized it. He took to the railroad track and headed eastward. When the curve, half a mile up the road, hid him from view, the pursuer was running head down and tail up, with a vigor which suggested that obstinacy Of pursuit for which his kind is proverbial.

About this Item: Createspace Independent Publishing Platform, 2015. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.The story centers on a country lawyer, Edward Wilkins, and his daughter Ellinor. Edward has an artistic and literary personality, unsuited to his social position as the son of a successful lawyer who takes over his father s practice in the provincial town of Hamley. His legal representation of the local gentry and nobility leads him to try fitting into their social circles, only to be mocked and treated with derision. He develops a drinking problem and spends more money than he can afford to in his attempts to be an equal to his clients. His bad habits lead to problems in his business, and Edward is forced to take on a junior partner named Mr. Dunster. At the same time, Ellinor becomes engaged to a young upcoming country gentleman named Ralph Corbet. Corbet initiates the engagement partly through love of Ellinor and partly because of a promise of money from Edward. Edward continues to drink and overspend, leading to a confrontation with Mr. Dunster. In the heat of the argument, Edward strikes Mr. Dunster, killing him. Ellinor and a family servant named Dixon help Edward to bury the body in their flower garden. Ellinor soon tells Ralph that a possible disgrace hangs over her. Ralph questions Edward about this, and Edward insults him in a drunken tirade. Ralph dissolves his engagement to Ellinor because of this, and because he regrets forming an engagement to someone who offers no opportunity of helping him advance in society. He later marries into the nobility and becomes a judge. Edward drinks himself to death and Ellinor moves to a distant town, East Chester, after the Wilkins s home Ford Bank is rented out in order to provide Ellinor with a living. Dixon remains as a servant to watch over the home and property where the body is buried. The secret goes unknown for about 15 years until the body is dug up during the construction of a railroad. Dixon is arrested for the murder and later convicted by Ralph, who acts as the judge in the case. Ellinor then tells Ralph the truth, and Dixon is pardoned. She returns to East Chester and marries a local clergyman, Canon Livingstone, who she had known in her youth, and has two children with him. Seller Inventory # APC9781517658793

About this Item: Createspace Independent Publishing Platform, United States, 2017. Paperback. Condition: New. Large Print. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.*Includes pictures *Includes accounts of the murder and trial *Includes online resources and a bibliography for further reading *Includes a table of contents Under the same circumstances, I d kill him tomorrow. - Harry Thaw It reads like a modern day Lifetime movie: two talented, popular and wealthy men both fall in love with the same beautiful but somewhat tarnished girl. One had a long history of mental illness, the other was considered an architectural genius. The inevitable showdown, complete with a very public murder, took place in one of the most fashionable restaurants in the world. Although it reads like a movie or soap opera, it was an all too true story that culminated with the 1907 trial of the century, when railroad tycoon Harry Thaw, the husband of famous model Evelyn Nesbit, was prosecuted for killing renowned architect Stanford White, his wife s former lover. Some say that it was such a shocking event that it actually helped speed the end of the Gilded Age. In the late 19th century, Cornelius The Commodore Vanderbilt sold his stake in Madison Square Garden to J.P. Morgan, who subsequently hired Stanford White to construct a new arena in its place. At the time he was commissioned to draw up plans for the new Garden, White was a partner with McKim, Mead White, a firm that had designed some of New York s most beautiful mansions, including the Fifth Avenue homes of the Vanderbilt s and the Astor s. However, in addition to designing the Garden and other similar spaces, he also designed a secret hideaway in his own home where an aspiring young dancer, 16 year old Evelyn Nesbit, would entertain him during sexually inappropriate meetings. This and other dalliances would later lead to one of the most notorious events in the Garden s history. On a warm evening in late June 1906, millionaire Harry K. Thaw, who had by this time married Nesbit, approached White while he watched the show Mam zelle Champagne in the roof garden theater on top of Madison Square Garden. Pulling out a pistol, he shot White three times in the head at point blank range. At first, those in the theater thought it was a prank, but when the smoke cleared and White s wound became visible, they knew they had just witnessed something horrific. From the beginning, the crime had everything, including lurid sex, a shocking murder, and an insanity plea, and as a result, both Thaw and White were put on trial in the papers and the court. White s son would later complain, On the night of June 25th, 1906, while attending a performance at Madison Square Garden, Stanford White was shot from behind [by] a crazed profligate whose great wealth was used to besmirch his victim s memory during the series of notorious trials that ensued. Eventually, Thaw was declared innocent by reason of insanity and sentenced to time in a mental hospital, and in the meantime, White s reputation was thoroughly disgraced, leading Collier s Richard Harding Davis to counter, Since his death White has been described as a satyr. To answer this by saying that he was a great architect is not to answer at all.what is more important is that he was a most kindhearted, most considerate, gentle and manly man, who could no more have done the things attributed to him than he could have roasted a baby on a spit. Big in mind and in body, he was incapable of little meanness. He admired a beautiful woman as he admired every other beautiful thing God has given us; and his delight over one was as keen, as boyish, as grateful over any others. Despite the murder of White and one of the 20th century s first cases to be billed as the Trial of the Century, the new Madison Square Garden continued to play host to just about every kind of event, and even today Madison Square Garden remains known as The World s Most Famous Arena. The Trial of the Century: Evelyn Nesbit and the Murder of Stanford White chronicles the infamous crime and the notorious trial. Seller Inventory # APC9781543001839

About this Item: Createspace Independent Publishing Platform, 2015. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. The story centers on a country lawyer, Edward Wilkins, and his daughter Ellinor. Edward has an artistic and literary personality, unsuited to his social position as the son of a successful lawyer who takes over his father s practice in the provincial town of Hamley. His legal representation of the local gentry and nobility leads him to try fitting into their social circles, only to be mocked and treated with derision. He develops a drinking problem and spends more money than he can afford to in his attempts to be an equal to his clients. His bad habits lead to problems in his business, and Edward is forced to take on a junior partner named Mr. Dunster. At the same time, Ellinor becomes engaged to a young upcoming country gentleman named Ralph Corbet. Corbet initiates the engagement partly through love of Ellinor and partly because of a promise of money from Edward. Edward continues to drink and overspend, leading to a confrontation with Mr. Dunster. In the heat of the argument, Edward strikes Mr. Dunster, killing him. Ellinor and a family servant named Dixon help Edward to bury the body in their flower garden. Ellinor soon tells Ralph that a possible disgrace hangs over her. Ralph questions Edward about this, and Edward insults him in a drunken tirade. Ralph dissolves his engagement to Ellinor because of this, and because he regrets forming an engagement to someone who offers no opportunity of helping him advance in society. He later marries into the nobility and becomes a judge. Edward drinks himself to death and Ellinor moves to a distant town, East Chester, after the Wilkins s home Ford Bank is rented out in order to provide Ellinor with a living. Dixon remains as a servant to watch over the home and property where the body is buried. The secret goes unknown for about 15 years until the body is dug up during the construction of a railroad. Dixon is arrested for the murder and later convicted by Ralph, who acts as the judge in the case. Ellinor then tells Ralph the truth, and Dixon is pardoned. She returns to East Chester and marries a local clergyman, Canon Livingstone, who she had known in her youth, and has two children with him. Seller Inventory # APC9781517658793

About this Item: Createspace, United States, 2012. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. This high-quality volume includes the complete text of Louis Tracy s vintage mystery tale in a freshly edited and newly typeset edition. With a generous 6 x9 page size, this Summit Classic edition is printed on heavyweight bright white paper with a fully laminated cover featuring an original full color design. Page headers and footers and modern design and page layout exemplify the attention to detail given this volume. Sir Alan Hume-Frazer lay dead thirty feet from the door of his own country manor, murdered on the night of his New Year s Ball with a curious little knife from his own collection. Accused of the murder, his cousin, David Hume-Frazer, stood trial and was acquitted by the jury on the strength of doubt about the circumstantial evidence against him. But doubt now casts a shadow over David s good name, his reputation stained by doubt about his innocence and doubt about what really happened that night. Desperate to clear his name and find the truth about the murder, David turns to Reginald Brett, the barrister detective, to look into the case. With his own doubts about the case - what motive could David have had for killing Alan? - Brett takes up the cold trail and follows the clues where they lead, discovering family secrets, exposing hidden identities and racing against time - and a shadowy assassin - to unravel the mystery before another Hume-Frazer is murdered. Louis Tracy (1863-1928) was a prolific British writer of both fiction and nonfiction. Despite his large body of work, comparatively little is known about Tracy s life. The author of numerous mysteries, Tracy s works are characterized by a straightforward narrative style, well-developed background stories, interesting characters and complex plots. Around 1884 Tracy sent a letter to a local paper opposing a railroad planned for a beautiful Yorkshire valley. Offered a job as a reporter, Tracy became a newspaperman, first at Darlington, and later as editor of the English-language Morning Post in Allahabad, India. Returning to England in 1892, Tracy helped found The Sun, then, with Arthur Harmsworth, the future Lord Northcliffe, purchased The Evening News and Post. Tracy became editor of the renamed Evening News but shortly thereafter sold his shares to Harmsworth, missing out on a huge fortune when the value of the paper subsequently skyrocketed. But it was the money from this sale that allowed Tracy to carry out what he considered his finest accomplishment. During the brutal winter of 1894, with England in the grip of a depression, Tracy personally set-up, ran and funded a network of 23 soup kitchens, which fed an estimated three and a half million of London s starving poor. Between 1885 and 1895 Tracy wrote and edited a series of nonfiction books and short stories, based for the most part on his experiences in India. In 1895 he outlined his first novel, about a European conflict in which America would come to the aid of Britain in a great war which would be the end of all war, was published as a serial in Pearson s Weekly and later in book form. The Final War was quite successful and is a pioneering example of the Future War or Future History sub-genre of science fiction and fantasy literature. Tracy actually wrote this novel in separate episodes as they became due, rather than submitting portions of a finished work. By 1900 Tracy was producing straightforward mystery novels on a regular basis, and with the exception of 1917-1919, when he was rousing support for the war effort in America, he continued to publish an average two or three novels per year through the 1920 s, and a collection of his works was reissued after his death. A few of his novels are still fairly well-known, and many of his mysteries, especially those featuring Reginald Brett and Winter Furneaux, are still read and enjoyed by mystery fans today.

About this Item: Createspace, United States, 2013. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. This high-quality volume includes the complete text of Louis Tracy s vintage mystery tale in a freshly edited and newly typeset edition. With a generous 6 x9 page size, this Summit Classic Press edition is printed on heavyweight bright white paper with a fully laminated cover featuring an original full color design. Page headers and footers, an original biographical sketch of the enigmatic Louis Tracy, and original annotations exemplify the attention to detail given this volume. Mortimer Fenley, London financier and banker, lay dead at the very doorstep of his country home, shot from ambush while lighting his morning cigar. The local constable, by mere coincidence, arrived quickly at the scene and organized a search of the surrounding area, concluding that the shot could only have come from one vantage point, a high rocky crag opposite the house. The only clue turned up by the search, a clear set of footprints found in a shady wet area near the rocks, is carefully preserved when the constable closes the area and puts it under police guard. It falls to the famed Scotland Yard duo of Winter and Furneaux to unravel a mystery that begins with the realization that had the shot actually come from the only possible spot the marksman would have been clearly visible from the house, that the Fenley mansion hides ugly secrets in stark contrast to its idyllic setting, and that the only person who could have committed the murder could not have fired the shot. Louis Tracy (1863-1928) was a prolific British writer of both fiction and nonfiction. Despite his large body of work, comparatively little is known about Tracy s life.

But it was the money from this sale that allowed Tracy to carry out what he considered his finest accomplishment. In 1894, with England in the grip of a depression, Tracy personally set-up, ran and funded a network of 23 soup kitchens, which fed an estimated three and a half million of London s starving poor. Between 1885 and 1895 Tracy wrote and edited a series of nonfiction books and short stories, based for the most part on his experiences in India. In 1895 his first novel, about a European conflict in which America would come to the aid of Britain in a great war which would be the end of all war, was published as a serial in Pearson s Weekly and later in book form. The Final War was quite successful and is a pioneering example of the Future War or Future History sub-genre of science fiction and fantasy literature. Tracy actually wrote this novel in separate episodes as they became due, rather than submitting portions of a finished work. By 1900 Tracy was producing straightforward mystery novels on a regular basis, and with the exception of 1917-1919, when he was rousing support for the war effort in America, he continued to publish an average two or three novels per year through the 1920 s, and a collection of his works was reissued after his death. A few of his novels are still fairly well-known, and many of his mysteries, especially those featuring Reginald Brett and Winter Furneaux, are still read and enjoyed by mystery fans today.

About this Item: Createspace, United States, 2012. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.This high-quality volume includes the complete text of Louis Tracy s vintage mystery tale in a freshly edited and newly typeset edition. With a generous 6 x9 page size, this Summit Classic edition is printed on heavyweight bright white paper with a fully laminated cover featuring an original full color design. Page headers and footers and modern design and page layout exemplify the attention to detail given this volume. Sir Alan Hume-Frazer lay dead thirty feet from the door of his own country manor, murdered on the night of his New Year s Ball with a curious little knife from his own collection. Accused of the murder, his cousin, David Hume-Frazer, stood trial and was acquitted by the jury on the strength of doubt about the circumstantial evidence against him. But doubt now casts a shadow over David s good name, his reputation stained by doubt about his innocence and doubt about what really happened that night. Desperate to clear his name and find the truth about the murder, David turns to Reginald Brett, the barrister detective, to look into the case. With his own doubts about the case - what motive could David have had for killing Alan? - Brett takes up the cold trail and follows the clues where they lead, discovering family secrets, exposing hidden identities and racing against time - and a shadowy assassin - to unravel the mystery before another Hume-Frazer is murdered. Louis Tracy (1863-1928) was a prolific British writer of both fiction and nonfiction. Despite his large body of work, comparatively little is known about Tracy s life. The author of numerous mysteries, Tracy s works are characterized by a straightforward narrative style, well-developed background stories, interesting characters and complex plots. Around 1884 Tracy sent a letter to a local paper opposing a railroad planned for a beautiful Yorkshire valley. Offered a job as a reporter, Tracy became a newspaperman, first at Darlington, and later as editor of the English-language Morning Post in Allahabad, India. Returning to England in 1892, Tracy helped found The Sun, then, with Arthur Harmsworth, the future Lord Northcliffe, purchased The Evening News and Post. Tracy became editor of the renamed Evening News but shortly thereafter sold his shares to Harmsworth, missing out on a huge fortune when the value of the paper subsequently skyrocketed. But it was the money from this sale that allowed Tracy to carry out what he considered his finest accomplishment. During the brutal winter of 1894, with England in the grip of a depression, Tracy personally set-up, ran and funded a network of 23 soup kitchens, which fed an estimated three and a half million of London s starving poor. Between 1885 and 1895 Tracy wrote and edited a series of nonfiction books and short stories, based for the most part on his experiences in India. In 1895 he outlined his first novel, about a European conflict in which America would come to the aid of Britain in a great war which would be the end of all war, was published as a serial in Pearson s Weekly and later in book form.

With a generous 6 x9 page size, this Summit Classic Press edition is printed on heavyweight bright white paper with a fully laminated cover featuring an original full color design. Page headers and footers, an original biographical sketch of the enigmatic Louis Tracy, and original annotations exemplify the attention to detail given this volume. Mortimer Fenley, London financier and banker, lay dead at the very doorstep of his country home, shot from ambush while lighting his morning cigar. The local constable, by mere coincidence, arrived quickly at the scene and organized a search of the surrounding area, concluding that the shot could only have come from one vantage point, a high rocky crag opposite the house. The only clue turned up by the search, a clear set of footprints found in a shady wet area near the rocks, is carefully preserved when the constable closes the area and puts it under police guard. It falls to the famed Scotland Yard duo of Winter and Furneaux to unravel a mystery that begins with the realization that had the shot actually come from the only possible spot the marksman would have been clearly visible from the house, that the Fenley mansion hides ugly secrets in stark contrast to its idyllic setting, and that the only person who could have committed the murder could not have fired the shot.
