Dead Man River

Author: Tyler Hatch

Publisher: Robert Hale Ltd (2015)

It seemed like a wonderful solution to Dave Brent’s troubles: exchange identities with the dead man he found floating in the river and that should be the last he would hear of the Vandemanns, who wanted his blood. But the dead man was more popular than he reckoned – and a lot of men wanted to find the man now using his name: if they caught him, he could choose to die either by torture or a quick bullet. Dave didn’t want to settle for either choice

Strumpet City

Author: James Plunkett

Publisher: Panther books (1800)

This magnificent novel has rightly been compared in its scope and rich humanity to Dr. Zhivago. It tells the vivid and passionate story of Dublin in its angry years. The pages throng with a host of memorable characters - arrogant employers, oppressed workers, brutal police, prostitutes, confused priests and innocent people caught up in a bitter struggle they barely understand. This is a superbly panoramic modern book in the great tradition of the epic novel.

The Seventh Man

Author: Max Brand

Publisher: CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform (2014)

A man under thirty needs neighbors and to stop up the current of his life with a long silence is like obstructing a river—eventually the water either sweeps away the dam or rises over it, and the stronger the dam the more destructive is that final rush to freedom. Vic Gregg was on the danger side of thirty and he lived alone in the mountains all that winter. He wanted to marry Betty Neal, but marriage means money, therefore Vic contracted fifteen hundred dollars' worth of mining for the Duncans, and instead of taking a partner he went after that stake single handed. He is a very rare man who can turn out that amount of labor in a single season, but Gregg furnished that exception which establishes the rule: he did the assessment work on fourteen claims and almost finished the fifteenth, yet he paid the price. Week after week his set of drills was wife and child to him, and for conversation he had only the clangor of the four-pound single-jack on the drill heads, with the crashing of the "shots" now and then as periods to the chatter of iron on iron. He kept at it, and in the end he almost finished the allotted work, but for all of it he paid in full.
