An unholy union exists between a racist U.S. senator and the candidate poised to become South Carolina’s first black congressman since the Civil War.
The year is 1959, the setting, rural South Carolina. Poor, black teenager Ike Washington stumbles on a Klan lynching led by a white judge. Caught, he must choose: join the dead man or begin hustling black support the ambitious judge needs to advance. In trade, Ike is handed a life of comfort and power.
Decades later, as he is poised to become the first black SC congressman since Reconstruction, guiltwracked Ike winds up alone in the same forest, a long rope in his fist. Rookie reporter Dan Patragno uncovers the truth just before Election Day.

With a mind for crime solving and headstrong about protecting her family – Liv Bergen finds herself trailing a vengeful killer with a crooked sense of justice The third Liv Bergen mystery picks up right where the second one left off: the murder of Liv’s future sister-in-law has been solved, but an older rancher has been bludgeoned
to death in a style eerily reminiscent of a long-inactive killer known only as the Crooked Man. FBI agent Streeter Pierce, still on assignment in Sturgis, South Dakota, must now turn his sights on tracking down the killer—his nemesis from ten years earlier.
Pierce doesn’t complain, though; he’s falling in love with Liv and sets in motion an
unconventional plan to recruit her for the FBI’s training camp in Quantico as they work
the case together. But is Liv falling for the brilliant, exotic agent Jack Linwood instead?
Once again, Liv’s vast knowledge of the Black Hills of South Dakota—territory made
famous by the gold rush that followed General George Custer’s expedition—and the
novel folk who live there leads her to unearth critical clues about the Crooked Man. But
are facts enough to safeguard Liv’s sister Elizabeth and her friend, an elderly woman
battling cancer who was attacked just days after her husband was murdered?
Will the frail yet feisty widow recover her strength in time to help Liv thwart the Crooked Man’s
murderous plans and fatal blows?

A debut novel about a man and his romantic quest to find the woman he loved and lost years before.
Like Nicholas Sparks and Robert James Waller, first-time novelist Peter Golden knows how to write the kind of nostalgic fiction that men and women alike fall for. In Comeback Love, a
universal story about lost love, he offers an evocative debut that begins in the tumultuous 1960s and ends in the feverish thrill of present-day New York City. Over thirty-five years ago, Gordon Meyers, an aspiring writer with a low number in the draft
lottery, packed his belongings and reluctantly drove away, leaving Glenna Rising, the sexy, sharp-witted med student he couldn’t imagine living without.
Now, decades later, Gordon is a former globetrotting consultant with a grown son, an exwife,
and an overwhelming desire to see Glenna again. Stunned when Gordon walks into her
Manhattan office, Glenna agrees to accompany him for a drink. As the two head out into the
snow-swept city, they become caught up in the passions that drew them together before tearing
them apart. And as the evening unfolds, Gordon finally reveals the true reason for his return.
Comeback Love is a bracing journey into the hearts of two lovers who came of age in the 1960s.
Plumbing the depths of youth, regret, and desire, Peter Golden deftly illuminates the bonds that
mysteriously endure in the face of momentous change.
