Dead End Street, first published in 1936 as part of the Red Badge Mystery Series, features private detective Peter Clancy, assisted by his valet Wiggars. Author Emma Redington Lee Thayer (1874-1973) published 60 novels during her long career, all but one featuring detective Peter Clancy. Synopsis from the original edition: Albert Madison picked up a strange valet in an even more peculiar way. But the haunted look on his face remained. Sally Howard’s inordinate curiosity seemed harmless enough but it was to lead to something ... Then Patrolman Duffy was found murdered by a knife, his body having been dragged some distance and dumped into Spuyten Duyvil Creek. It was the cold-bloodedness of this crime and the total absence of clues that first aroused the suspicions of Peter Clancy. It was too slick, too harmless. The only conclusion was that poor Michael Duffy was “a pawn—that had to be taken—off the board.” Dead End Street is a thriller of the first order. In it the reader will find a twisting, complex plot, moving with lightning speed and gathering suspense as the astonishing denouement draws closer ... Peter Clancy is at his quick-witted best and the other characters, odd assortment though they be, are not likely to be soon forgotten.

When a prominent doctor with political connections is viciously bludgeoned to death in Dublin in 1963, for Detective Inspector Harry Wall, the case awakens dark memories of a horrific experience during World War Two. As he begings to dig, the detective methodically uncovers a web of corruption, greed and barbarity, and exposes humanity's darkest underbelly. Wall's investigation ultimately forces him to return to Germany, where he follows a shocking trail of Nazi brutality that leads him back to the heart of government in Ireland.

Deserves five stars, as for its genre, it really is that good. - Goodreads.com 'Gripping from beginning to end.' - New Books UK Magazine

Detective Harry Mason has rejoined the South African Police Service after a two-year leave of absence, and moved over to the specialised Serious and Violent Crimes unit, headed by the tough and fiery veteran commander Superintendent Carl ‘Blackie’ Swarts. Soon afterwards, Harry is assigned to investigate the slaying of a minor politician and his family, in a township west of Johannesburg. The case, at first seemingly unsolvable, is abruptly saved by an enigmatic grassroots anarchist whom Harry befriended during the apartheid riots of the ’80s, and soon the SVC is hot on the heels of one of the country’s most secretive and violent vigilante groups, known as ‘The Guardians’, headed up by two brothers whose brutality is legendary amongst the poor inhabitants of Johannesburg’s squatter camps. As the investigation slices away at the layers of secrecy surrounding this group, other secrets surface – truths that ultimately pose a threat to Harry’s unit, and to the city at large. When Harry is abruptly gunned down by unseen assassins during a dawn raid on a remote village, and a bomb is detonated in the judicial heartland of Johannesburg, his former police partner and long-time friend, Detective Jacob Tshabalala, is forced to take matters into his own hands, and expose a splinter faction of vigilantes operating within the police service itself – a faction whose connections stretch all the way into parliament itself.

As a result of the American families having to endure the Great Depression of the 1930's followed, shortly thereafter, by World War II in the 1940's, the American people pulled together, like never before, in loving their family, friends and, above all, their United States of America. This book is about the Author growing up in the 1940's, 50's and 60's in the small town of Alliance, Ohio. Alliance was written up in Ripley's Believe It Or Not "as the only city in the United States who's Main Street was Dead End at both ends." It was a time that children were growing up learning to love their families, friends, nature's outdoor, religion and good moral codes and the value of hard work. This is a lighthearted reminiscence of the Author's life with, his sister, brother and their many friends during this most important time in American History. There are many silly tales of events in the Author's childhood and a few sad ones, that helped shape his approach to life.

Also, there are several stories, about how unbelievably small this world is at times, which will astound you. By the end of this book, there will no doubt that growing up in America, at that time, was the greatest time and Greatest Country in which to grow up. This book was initially written for the Author's 7 wonderful grandchildren and thus it can be read easily by youthful readers, as well as adults.

When they were ten years old, the Dead End Boys—Ben, Rob, Mike, and Brian—witnessed a triple murder attempt by a notorious gangster known as “Slim Jimmy” near their home in Southern New Jersey. In the face of police questioning and fear of consequences from the Mafia, they learned at an early age that in order to protect themselves and their families, sometimes big secrets need to be kept. What’s more, the incident cemented the boys’ deep, lifelong bond. Now in their twenties, the Dead End Boys decide to vacation in Miami, Florida, to get relief from the brutally cold winter in the northeast, maybe party a bit, and possibly meet some girls. But one morning, Ben awakes alone in an abandoned field with no recollection of what happened. He knows he must find his friends. The clues lead him to the Florida Keys, where the Dead End Boys have been set up to run drugs for the Cuban mafia that has its grip on Miami. This group of young men, who learned to trust only each other at a young age, are about to put those lessons of loyalty to the test once more.

Dead End in Norvelt is the winner of the 2012 Newbery Medal for the year's best contribution to children's literature and the Scott O'Dell Award for Historical Fiction! Melding the entirely true and the wildly fictional, Dead End in Norvelt is a novel about an incredible two months for a kid named Jack Gantos, whose plans for vacation excitement are shot down when he is "grounded for life" by his feuding parents, and whose nose spews bad blood at every little shock he gets. But plenty of excitement (and shocks) are coming Jack's way once his mom loans him out to help a fiesty old neighbor with a most unusual chore—typewriting obituaries filled with stories about the people who founded his utopian town. As one obituary leads to another, Jack is launced on a strange adventure involving molten wax, Eleanor Roosevelt, twisted promises, a homemade airplane, Girl Scout cookies, a man on a trike, a dancing plague, voices from the past, Hells Angels . . . and possibly murder. Endlessly surprising, this sly, sharp-edged narrative is the author at his very best, making readers laugh out loud at the most unexpected things in a dead-funny depiction of growing up in a slightly off-kilter place where the past is present, the present is confusing, and the future is completely up in the air.
