Riassunto: Crider?s prose slices through conventions and expectations,? ?Booklist
OUTRAGE AT BLANCO
It?s True Grit meets Gran Torino in a blazingly original crime novel from Bill Crider, an Edgar and Shamus finalist and a two-time winner of the Anthony Award
On a bloody day in 1887, death came to Blanco, Texas.
Before the sun went down, the livery stable was torched, an outlaw gang robbed the bank, two men were killed, and young newlywed Ellie Taine was raped. One of the dead was the man who planned the robbery ? the son of dying, legendary Texas Ranger Jonathan Crossland ? the other was Ellie?s husband, an innocent bystander.
The dead don?t know fear.
Ellie is dead inside. She takes a gun and rides out after the desperadoes, cold-blooded and fearless, determined to kill the men who ruined her life. She?s joined by Jonathan Crossland, who only has days left to live? but would rather die in his saddle making amends for his son than rot in his bed. Together, Ellie and Jonathan set out on a mission of vengeance and justice, one that neither of them expects nor hopes to survive.
?In the hands of Bill Crider, noir seems as atmospheric and doomful as ever,? Publisher?s Weekly
"Bill Crider is one of the most unpretentious and versatile pure entertainers in the mystery field." Ellery Queen's Mystery Magazine
Dal risvolto interno: On the day the bloodthirsty gang rode into Blanco, Texas, the bank was robbed, Ellie Taine was brutally assaulted, and her husband and another man were shot dead. Something within Ellie also died that day, and she would never be the same. Shotgun at her side, she rode out after the desperadoes and gave Texas one more outlaw--a woman bent on bloody revenge.
