A Spotlight from The 131 Preview Review

Title: Frontier Justice:  Bass Reeves, Deputy U.S. Marshal

Author +Charles Ray  



Book Blurb:

When the Civil War ended, runaway slave Bass Reeves returned to Arkansas, married his sweetheart, and started raising a family. Unable to read or write English, but proficient in six Indian languages and an expert with firearms, he was often hired by deputy U.S. Marshals to scout when they sought fugitives in Indian Territory. When President U.S. Grant appointed Isaac Parker federal judge for Arkansas and the Indian Territory, Parker decided to hire African-Americans as deputies because inhabitants of the Indian Territory didn’t trust whites. Reeves was one of several blacks among the 200 deputies Parker deputized, and became the most famous. In a 32-year career, this amazing man captured over 3,000 fugitives and only had to kill 14.

Frontier Justice is a fictionalized account of Reeves’ first two years as a deputy marshal.

#MondayBlogs #131PreviewReview Welcomes Death By Haggis #Author Jay Cutts @shannonihayes @jaycuttsbooks

The 131 Preview Review Welcomes Jay Cutts



Bio:  I've been writing educational and marketing materials over the past 30 years, as well as performing and writing comedy. My published works include the (hopefully) non-fiction Barron's MCAT Prep Book (October 2011), Barron's LSAT Prep Book (August 2013), and Barron’s MCAT Flash cards (2015). My second novel is Annie Gomez and the Gigantic Foot of Doom, involving evil bullies, spaces rhinos, teensy fairies who may or may not be good or evil,  cupcake bombs, and the secret to faster-than-light travel.

I've been known to play haunting folk tunes on the accordion in the streets of Warsaw, Prague, Bratislava, Budapest, and various towns in Romania. Sometimes I get chased away. Sometimes people bring me food. Occasionally someone actually stops and listens, which makes me smile.

The 131 Preview Review Presents


An Amazon Breakthrough Novel Quarterfinalist, Death by Haggis is a tongue in cheek detective novel inspired by the Bulwer-Lytton Fiction Contest for the "opening sentence to the worst of all possible novels." Until the day Jane Hamchester walked into his squalid office, the highlight of Detective Sam Barlow's life had been a particularly good tuna sandwich. Now he is charged with trying to save the life of the only woman he ever, uhm, thought was really swell. His only problem is that there are no clues, other than the nonsensical utterances of a dying man. Barlow's desperate search takes him first to Scotland and then to the Aegean. But time is running out. Not only for Jane but for the human race. Barlow's only possible hope lies at the bottom of an ancient cavern, a remnant from the time when a different kind of human populated the Earth, a kind of human that could have saved mankind. Alas, they are long extinct. Or are they?



This book is certainly a fun turn of events, that keeps you wondering when the next piano is going to drop. Read on for more weirdly profound craziness...
