📒Hanging Judge ✍ Fred Harvey Harrington
✏Hanging Judge Book Summary : Isaac C. Parker, the stern U.S. judge for Indian Territory from 1875 to 1896, brought law and order to a lawless frontier region. He held court in the border city of Fort Smith, Arkansas, but his jurisdiction extended over the Indian tribal lands to the west. Pressing juries for convictions, Parker sent seventy-nine convicted criminals to the gallows - as many as six at a time. More often than not, however, he passed sentences on thousands of liquor dealers, rapists, and cattle and horse thieves - even throwing Belle Starr in the penitentiary for stealing a horse from a crippled boy. Credit is due to this "hanging judge" and the men who rode for Parker and restored order - two hundred deputy marshals, sixty-five of whom died in the line of duty. This new edition includes a foreword by Larry D. Ball, who situates Parker's court within the context of unrest and rising crime in Indian Territory.

📒The Hanging Judge ✍ Michael Ponsor
✏The Hanging Judge Book Summary : From the author of The One-Eyed Judge: A New York Times–bestselling novel about a federal death penalty trial from the perspective of the presiding judge. When a drive-by shooting in Holyoke, Massachusetts, claims the lives of a drug dealer and a hockey mom volunteering at an inner-city clinic, the police arrest a rival gang member. With no death penalty in Massachusetts, the US attorney shifts the double homicide out of state jurisdiction into federal court so he can seek a death sentence. The Honorable David S. Norcross, a federal judge with only two years on the bench, now presides over the first death penalty case in the state in decades. He must referee the clash between an ambitious female prosecutor and a brilliant veteran defense attorney in a high-stress environment of community outrage, media pressure, vengeful gang members, and a romantic entanglement that threatens to capsize his trial—not to mention the most dangerous force of all: the unexpected. Written by judge Michael Ponsor, who presided over Massachusetts’s first capital case in over fifty years, The Hanging Judge explores the controversial issue of capital punishment in a dramatic and thought-provoking way that will keep you on the edge of your seat. It is “a crackling court procedural” (Anita Shreve) and “gripping legal thriller” (Booklist) perfect for fans of Scott Turow.

📒Justice From Hell Aka The Hanging Judge ✍ J.R. Roberts
✏Justice from Hell aka The Hanging Judge Book Summary : JUSTICE FROM HELL aka The Hanging Judge Clint Adams is looking forward to quiet times in Trickle Creek. Instead, he's met with a twitching body, hanging high and left for vultures. But in this town, there's no vulture hungrier than Judge Krueger. The judge's specialty isn't imposing old-fashioned justice on wrongdoers, though. This is outright lynching, and only the latest in a string of strung-ups. What's more, the suckers that Krueger and his Four Horsemen railroad all the way to the noose are innocent. It's time the Gunsmith cuts the ropes on these goons and stops the power-mad judge. And he'd better do it fast—because there's some tight twine and a high branch just waiting to snap the interloper's neck...
📒 Let No Guilty Man Escape ✍ Roger Harold Tuller
✏ Let No Guilty Man Escape Book Summary : ""Let No Guilty Man Escape," the first new Parker biography in four decades, corrects this simplistic image by presenting Parker's unique brand of frontier justice within the legal and political context of his time. Using primary documents from the National Archives, Missouri court records, and other sources not included by previous biographers, Roger H. Tuller demonstrates that Parker was an ambitious attorney who used the law to advance his own career. Parker rose from a frontier Missouri lawyer to become a congressional representative, and when Reconstructionist-era politics denied him continued progress, he sought the judicial appointment for which he is most remembered."--BOOK JACKET.
