Our lovely publishers, Crooked Cat, are launching a new mystery today. It is The Hanging Murders by Rex Carothers. It sounds a fascinating thriller and I grabbed a copy straight away. Here is the blurb….
Between 1932 and 1942, five unidentified white males between 25 and 45 were murdered in gruesome circumstances known as the Hanging Murders. At the time, during the Depression, many men wandered the country looking for work, food, and a new beginning. No one missed them.
Their murders were never solved. They became cold cases – until now, 1957.
When a man is found hanging upside down, cut up like butcher’s meat in a slaughterhouse, Jim Cobb, Sheriff of Inyo County, begins to investigate. What follows is a gruesome, dark journey into the heart of America.
The Hanging Murderer has returned. I love cold cases, am addicted to them on TV. It’s not going to help that the current sherrif is a hopeless drunk who has let his life slide following personal grief.
