A Spider for Loco Shoat: A Novel by Douglas C. Jones

Preeminent Western Writer Douglas C. Jones has long been regarded as writing at the top of his genre. Three-time recipient of the Golden Spur Award for Best Western Historical Novel, Jones never fails to deliver a rollicking tale, rich with the texture of the American frontier.<P>In his new book, Jones takes us back to the year 1907, just as summer is beginning to settle on western Arkansas. Seven-year-old Jay Bird Joey Schwartz, resident orphan of the Fort Smith bordello, has taken to spending his evenings in the National Cemetery, listening to the frogs and eating stolen pie. But when he sees a fairy prince napping between the graves, and when the murdered body of one of Fort Smiths most powerful citizens is discovered by the cemetery caretaker, Joey quickly becomes the sole witness.<P>Crusty investigator Oscar Schiller, a former Deputy U.S. Marshall, finds it odd that the sheriffs office is so quick to close the case. His search for answers will introduce him to one of the strangest torture techniques hes ever seen.
