Cactus Cavalier

by Norman A. Fox

The big man wore no gun. He stood in the dust of Swayback's main street, full of wild anger. And as Dave Larkin watched from his hotel window, he saw it all happen: the boy playing in the street, the big man picking up a stone, the man at the saloon door moving for his gun. Suddenly a child was dead, and Larkin was about to become the law in a town on its knees. Larkin traveled a thousand miles to return to Swayback and a woman who hadn't waited for him. And he would have ridden out that same night if he hadn't seen the killing and the way saloon owner Nick Diamond laughed it off. Now Larkin can't go anywhere. Not before he takes on Diamond's gang of thieves and killers with a blazing six-gun and his fists. Not before he lives or dies in the place he'd once called home.

Caddy For Life: The Bruce Edwards Story

by John Feinstein

Beyond golf's polished surface there lies a world not often seen by the average fan. The caddy sees everything - the ambition, the strategy, the rivalries, the jealousies - that occurs behind the scenes. Award-winning John Feinstein, America's favourite sportswriter, got one of golf's legendary caddies to reveal the secrets behind the most popular sport of our time. Bruce Edwards was diagnosed with Lou Gehrig's disease in January 2003, a progressive disease that attacks nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord, but he dominated coverage of the 2003 US Open. This is a position not usually bestowed on a caddy, but Edwards was no ordinary caddy. In 1973, after forgoing college, Edwards walked on the course behind a young Tom Watson and never looked back. Watson would go on to win eight major titles with Bruce Edwards by his side. Edwards continued to do the job he had dedicated more than half his life to right up to his death in April 2004, aged 49. This is a moving, dramatic and thoughtful book about a life devoted to sports.

Cadillac Jack

by Larry Mcmurtry

In Cadillac Jack, Larry McMurtry -- Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Lonesome Dove -- proves his unique talent for conjuring up the real, often eccentric people who inhabit the American heartland and for capturing the peculiarly American search for new frontiers and adventure. Cadillac Jack is a rodeo-cowboy-turned-antique-scout whose nomadic, womanizing life -- centered on his classic pearl-colored Cadillac -- rambles between the Texas flatlands of flea markets and small-time auctions and Washington, D.C.'s political-social life of parties, hustlers, vixens, and spies. Along the way he meets a cast of indelibly etched characters: among them, the strikingly beautiful, social-climbing Cindy Sanders; Boog Miller, the tackily-dressing millionaire good ole boy who patronizes Jack's business and who has more political muscle than a litter of lobbyists; Khaki Descartes, the pushy, brain-picking, Washington woman reporter; Freddy Fu, an undercover CIA agent working out of a greasy barbecue joint called The Cover-Up; and Jean Arber, the mother of two and a fledgling antique-store owner who can't quite figure out if she'll marry Jack or not. Wild, touching, and hilariously funny, Cadillac Jack is Larry McMurtry's raucous social satire of sex, politics, and love in the fast lane, peopled with Americans only he could render.

After all, rumors of Ku Klux Klan ties trailed his shiftless family into the Cajun wetlands. Only Dave Robicheaux, "the haunted, all-too-human homicide detective" (The Washington Post Book World) to whom Crown proclaims his innocence, worries Crown is a scapegoat for the collective guilt of a generation. But when the scion of an old Southern family, who played a pivotal role in Crown's arrest, is elected governor, strange things start to happen. Dave is offered a job as head of the state police; a documentary filmmaker seeking to prove Crown's innocence is killed; and the governor's wife--a former flame--once again turns her seductive powers on Dave.

Caduceus Wild

Nothing must encroach on the Public Health. Every facet of life has been measured and made safe. But there are a few escapees, dissidents, deviants. The "Abnormals." This is the story of three of them. . . As the author explains in a note, this book is a substantial expansion and re-write of a 1959 magazine serial of the same name, by Ward Moore, Robert Bradford, and Jean Ariss.
