Summaries and Reviews description: Product Description:

Local boy Joe Bain has been elected County Sheriff, after his success with the murders in Fox Valley.

He’s just settling into the job when someone kills the Pleasant Grove mail carrier with a hammer. One of the wealthy families along Madrone Way must be involved, but the circumstances are peculiar – and a break in the case is slow to come.

The hammer strikes again, and again…

The Pleasant Grove Murders is Volume 22 of the Spatterlight Press Signature Series. Released in the centenary of the author's birth, this handsome new collection is based upon the prestigious Vance Integral Edition. Select volumes enjoy up-to-date maps, and many are graced with freshly-written forewords contributed by a distinguished group of authors. Each book bears a facsimile of the author's signature and a previously-unpublished photograph, chosen from family archives for the period the book was written. These unique features will be appreciated by all, from seasoned Vance collector to new reader sampling the spectrum of this author's influential work for the first time. – John Vance II
