Pressestimmen

"Ron Franscell has undeniably hit his mark. His masterful storytelling strikes hard at the heart. It leaves his readers stunned one moment and tenderly moved the next. ... a brilliant and engaging blend of fast-paced suspense, painstaking prose and characters so real they could drive down southbound I-25." -- Denver Post "An impressive debut that will keep you on the edge of your seat!" -- San Francisco Chronicle "Full of well-drawn human relationships that make the reader care about Morgan and the people who cross his path, but Franscell's second book has healthy doses of crime, death, destruction, violence, sex and page-turning action to go along with its terrific characterizations." -- Rapid City (SD) Journal "What separates Franscell from the rest of a large pack of mystery writers is the sheer quality of his writing. ... When you add writing that flows smooth and runs deep, like a proud old river, you have something different: A mystery novel that transcends and separates itself from all the others." --Publisher's Auxiliary "The Deadline is a masterfully woven mystery, filled with colorful characters." -- Charlotte Austin Review "[Franscell] makes us entirely forget that we've been down this road many times. As a bonus, he packs the novel with plenty of fascinating details about the newspaper business. A nice little sleeper of a mystery that deserves a wide audience." -- Booklist

Kurzbeschreibung

A dying convict’s last request thrusts small-town newspaperman Jefferson Morgan into a deadly maelstrom as he explores a fifty-year-old case of child murder — a wound his town still isn’t ready to scrape open. Under the heaviest deadline of his life, and amid threats from unexpected foes, Morgan must struggle with his own conscience to tell a story no matter the consequences, dig deep into the town’s past, and unveil a killer who’s managed to remain hidden in plain sight for almost 50 years.

Now a true crime bestseller, Ron Franscell began his crime-writing career with crime fiction. THE DEADLINE was his first mystery featuring newspaperman Jefferson Morgan, followed by its sequel, THE OBITUARY.

Jefferson Morgan thinks that he has seen it all, having been a crime reporter in the Windy City for most of his career. The lure of the countryside calls though, and he returns to his hometown of Winchester, Wyoming, with his wife, to settle down in the relative quiet of rural life in a small town. It's anything BUT quiet, he quickly finds out. He purchases the towns only newspaper, The Bullet, and is quickly and unwittingly submersed in the politicking and squabbles that his once- peaceful town dumps in his lap. But the most disturbing is a 50-year-old murder case that rears its spectral head...bringing nothing but grief and headaches for Morgan and his wife, both of whom are still dealing with the untimely death of their only son. When Morgan is approached by a recently released convict, the man who had confessed to the murder in question 50 years prior, Morgan is suddenly caught up in a tangled web of deceit and deception. Franscell deftly portrays life in a small town, and the quirky nature that life there can take...especially when murder and cover-up are involved. His descriptive narrative and strong characters make the story jump from the page, impressing itself indelibly on the brain. It has been a long time since I have found a page-turner such as this with people so vividly imagined and given life. I heartily recommend this to everyone who likes a good read on a dark night!

I'm not much of a mystery fan these days, but I decided to read Ron Franscell's "The Deadline" on the strength of my admiration for his beautiful literary novel, "Angel Fire." And I'm sure glad I did!
"The Deadline" is a cunning and capable who-done-it, full of intriguing plot-twists and hidden peril for the hero, small town newspaper editor Jefferson Davis. Confronted with a decades-old murder and little more than an dying ex-convict's word that justice has not been served, Davis struggles with his own cynicism and a host of menacing adversaries who would rather leave the past dead and buried. His investigation into the long-forgotten crime stirs the town's passions and Davis soon finds himself under attack from all sides (including a right-wing survivalist cult leader, local bankers and business owners, and even his former school friend, now the town's ambitious sheriff). As he races to uncover the truth the attacks turn personal; soon he is fighting not only for principle but for his livelihood, his family, and his own life.
I recommend this page-turner to all mystery fans seeking the thrills and chills of a fast-paced and intricately crafted puzzle. More than that, however, I commend Mr. Franscell's beautiful writing, his delightfully colorful characters, and his rich portrayal of small town life to the attention of all who appreciate the finest literature of any genre.

In August of 1948, a drunken fisherman named Pic Sandefur found the body of a 9-year-old girl in the Black Thunder River. The little girl had been missing for ten days. Her name was Aimee. A mean drunk named Neely Gilmartin was arrested and convicted, but he did not do it.
In late July of 1996, Neely Gilmartin is released because he has only weeks to live. Before he dies he wants to clear his name. This is where the action begins. Gilmartin goes to the newspaper office, "The Bullet," to talk to the new owner and editor Jeff Morgan. Morgan doesn't know what he'll do to help the dying man, he's not even sure he believes Gilmartin. Trey Kerrigan who is an old school friend of Morgan's is also the sheriff. Morgan consults with him. Kerrigan is positive that the killer was caught 50 years ago and for Morgan to leave things alone. Morgan also gets threats from the bank officers who gave him the loan for the paper and the advertisers of the paper to leave the case alone. Morgan must struggle with himself and try to do the right thing even no one wants him to.
Mr. Franscell's second novel is a solid hit as far as I'm concerned. I felt as if I was actually there, watching it all come to life. Having lived in small towns, I could identify with what was happening as the story progressed. I really enjoyed reading it and being taken to the edge. THE DEADLINE is a well-plotted mystery, packed with twists, turns and a lot of surprises.
