APRIL, 1861. As the Confederate cannon opens fire on Fort Sumter and the Civil War begins. A rebel officer on a courier run to the telegraph office, is murdered in a historic Charleston graveyard and his pouch of secret despatches stolen. How did he come to be there? Is it the work of a Union spy? Former Charleston Police Inspector and now Confederate Officer, Major Hugo Legare is assigned to the case. Meanwhile the civilian police arrest a young Jewish soldier, Simon Mendoza, and charge him with murder and espionage. The evidence against Mendoza is dangerously strong and anti-Semitic incitement fills the newspapers, feeding the fires of suspicion and bigotry. But Major Legare is not convinced. There are holes in the police case against Mendoza. Legare and his associate, scapegrace Irish nobleman Captain James Redmond, quickly turn up more than a few skeletons in the dead man's closet as well as a plethora of new suspects including a Boston abolitionist, the beautiful daughter of the city's most wealthy citizen, and one of their own brother officers. But while Legare hunts the killer through the gaslit streets of old Charleston, more bodies start piling up. Legare and Redmond must race against time to stop more murders and recover the vital documents which could change the course of the whole war.

Two years after the serial killer, Nomad, terrorized the fictional city of Glamorgan, N.C., Glamorgan Police Department detectives Maxine Mudd and Jeffrey Pitts find themselves investigating the murder of Bonnie Blue, a '70s porno queen who had spent 30-plus years in prison for a murder committed in 1977. During their investigation, Mudd and Pitts find themselves revisiting the “old” murder files to assist them in solving the “new” murder case. In “Who Slew Bonnie Blue?,” author Elbert Marshall writes a “tale of two cities” — flashing back in Book One to 1977 to explore the underbelly of Glamorgan when drugs, sex and X-rated videotapes were the city's criminal foundation. A new character emerges in John Wesley Parrish, who is the Gazette's crime reporter. Parrish finds himself walking a tightrope with the “wrong crowd” — to include penning a movie script entitled “The Xanhedrin Rhapsody” for porno king, Jackson Brown Black, a.k.a. Blackjack; and writing the novel, “Fallen Angel: The True Story of Bonnie Blue,” after Miss Blue is convicted of murder and sentenced to prison.In Book Two, Marshall flashes forward to 2010. Bonnie Blue has served her prison sentence and returns to Glamorgan seeking redemption for her sinful acts. When she is found murdered at a local motel, the Gazette newsroom is abuzz. The new city editor, Evan Parris, assigns his crime writer, Norma Rae Smithers, to interview John Wesley Parrish, who still resides in Glamorgan County and is a successful sci-fi fantasy writer. Parrish commits to an interview — with one condition: Parrish wants Norma Rae to bring Evan and his mother, Penny, with her for the interview. Meanwhile, Detectives Mudd and Pitts stumble on a possible connection between older police department detectives and the 1977 murder case. They begin piecing the puzzle together — right up to a fatal shootout in a cemetery that will leave readers wondering, “What the Hell!” After nearly two years since publishing “Nomad,” Elbert Marshall continues the “Glamorgan Mystery Series” with another whodunit, “Who Slew Bonnie Blue?.” The series began with the publication of “Plotz” in 2011, which was co-authored with Sandy Bruney. Marshall is a former newspaper sportswriter, reporter and editor; therefore, he relies on his 29 years of experience in the newspaper trade to allow the reader a glimpse at the inner workings of the editorial side of the print business. In 1994, he left newspapering to become the executive director of the Anson County (N.C.) Chamber of Commerce, where he served until his retirement in December 2005. In 2001, he partnered with Chamber co-worker Sandy Bruney to form Marshall Bruney Media Consultants, a website development and multimedia consulting firm, until December 2009. He and his wife, Carla, reside in Concord, N.C.

Murder on a Bad Hair Day It's hard to believe practical, petite ex-schoolteacher Patricia Anne and amiable, ample-bodied, and outrageous Mary Alice are sisters, yet sibling rivalry has survived decades of good-natured disagreement about everything from husbands to hair color. No sooner do the Southern sisters discover a common interest in some local art, when they're arguing the artistic merits of some well-coiffured heads at a gallery opening. A few hours later, one of those pretty ladies ends up dead -- with not a hair out of place. The other shows up on Patricia Anne's doorstep dazed, disheveled, and telling a wild tale of a narrow escape from some deadly cuts. Now the sisters are once again combing for clues to catch a killer with a bizarre style in art -- and murder.

Emmett Till: The Murder That Shocked the World and Propelled the Civil Rights Movement offers the first, and as of 2018, only comprehensive account of the 1955 murder, the trial, and the 2004-2007 FBI investigation into the case and Mississippi grand jury decision. By all accounts, it is the definitive account of the case. It tells the story of Emmett Till, the fourteen-year-old African American boy from Chicago brutally lynched for a harmless flirtation at a country store in the Mississippi Delta. Anderson utilizes documents that had never been available to previous researchers, such as the trial transcript, long-hidden depositions by key players in the case, and interviews given by Carolyn Bryant to the FBI in 2004 (her first in fifty years), as well as other recently revealed FBI documents. Anderson also interviewed family members of the accused killers, most of whom agreed to talk for the first time, as well as several journalists who covered the murder trial in 1955. Till's murder and the acquittal of his killers by an all-white jury set off a firestorm of protests that reverberated all over the world and spurred on the civil rights movement. Like no other event in modern history, the death of Emmett Till provoked people all over the United States to seek social change. Anderson's exhaustively researched book is also the basis for a forthcoming ABC limited series entitled Women of the Movement, which is being written/executive-produced by Marissa Jo Cerar; directed by Gina Prince-Bythewood, Tina Mabry, Julie Dash, and Kasi Lemmons; and executive-produced by Jay-Z, Jay Brown, Tyran “Ty Ty” Smith, Will Smith, James Lassiter, Aaron Kaplan, Dana Honor, Michael Lohmann, Rosanna Grace, Alex Foster, John Powers Middleton, and David Clark. For over six decades the Till story has continued to haunt the South as the lingering injustice of Till's murder and the aftermath altered many lives. Fifty years after the murder, renewed interest in the case led the Justice Department to open an investigation into identifying and possibly prosecuting accomplices of the two men originally tried. Between 2004 and 2005, the Federal Bureau of Investigation conducted the first real probe into the killing and turned up important information that had been lost for decades. Anderson covers the events that led up to this probe in great detail, as well as the investigation itself. This book will stand as the definitive work on Emmett Till for years to come. Incorporating much new information, the book demonstrates how the Emmett Till murder exemplifies the Jim Crow South at its nadir. The author accessed a wealth of new evidence. Anderson made a dozen trips to Mississippi and Chicago over a ten-year period to conduct research and interview witnesses and reporters who covered the trial. In Emmett Till, Anderson corrects the historical record and presents this critical saga in its entirety.

THE YEAR IS 1422. King Henry the Fifth of England, hero of Agincourt and conqueror of France, is dead. His son and heir is a ten month-old baby. The land is ruled by a council of quarreling nobles, the country is uncertain and the throne is shaky. A mysterious secret society called The Black Flame threatens the very foundations of the law, the Church, and the kingdom itself in a deep and terrible conspiracy of murder, treason, sorcery and devil worship. On the windswept northern coast of England stand Burnstow Abbey and the convent of St. Regula, headquarters for the Black Flame and the setting for deeds of debauchery and depravity of a kind to shock even the hardened fifteenth century. Royal agents sent to investigate vanish or wash up on the shore dead. Graves are opened and bodies taken for blasphemous and terrifying occult rites. Young women enter the convent of St. Regula and never come out. A young novice at the abbey, Arthur Fitzroy, the bastard son of the late King Henry, is found horribly murdered in an obscene parody of the crucifixion. The regents must take action, and so they send in the Middle Ages' most har-boiled detective: Sir Thomas Clave, the Black Knight. Murdering monks, poisoning prioresses, scheming royal uncles, back street assassins, a mad alchemist, a beautiful and dangerous Queen of the Witches, the Black Knight cuts his way through them all to discover the truth and prevent the final horror set for All Hallows' Eve.

Freedom's Sons is the fifth and last in underground cult novelist H.A. Covington's series of Northwest Independence novels. In the first four novels--A Distant Thunder, A Mighty Fortress, The Hill Of The Ravens, and The Brigade--we followed the path of the War of Independence when in the not-so-distant future, the people of the Pacific Northwest fought a five-year guerrilla war against the overbearing tyranny of Washington, D.C., and finally established the Northwest American Republic as an independent nation. Freedom's Sons chronicles the first fifty years of the NAR's existence as a country and a new society, including the struggle against crushing economic sanctions imposed by the outside world, as well as an attempt by the enraged Americans to reconquer the Northwest with a military invasion. The novel follows the fortune of three families, one of former rebel guerrilla fighters from the Northwest Volunteer Army, one Unionist, and one refugee family who flees to the Republic from the collapsing U.S.A. Freedom's Sons is a story of redemption and the triumph of the human spirit over the darkness now engulfing the world.
