An Act Of Murder

Fatal Blaze? "The Bride Who Cried." That was the title of the dinner-theater murder mystery presented at Maryland's luxurious Harbourtowne resort on Valentine's Day weekend, 1998. But no tears were being shed by Kimberly Hricko at 3 a.m. when she reported a fire in the room she shared with her husband, Stephen. Rescuers found him dead, badly burned around the upper body. It seemed that he'd fallen asleep while smoking a cigar, sparking off an inferno. Staged Murder But Kimberly's efforts to play the part of an innocent widow quickly began to unravel. Sleuths learned that she had been having an affair with a man ten years her junior. She also stood to inherit $400,000 on her husband's death--and had tried to bribe a coworker to kill Stephen for $50,000. In the courtroom, prosecutors argued that Kimberly injected her sleeping spouse with a lethal dose of muscle relaxant and set the fire to cover her tracks. For a cold-blooded killer who acted without remorse, there could only be one verdict. . . Linda Rosencrance has fifteen years experience as a reporter, writing for both the Boston Globe and the Boston Herald, as well as many community papers in the Boston metropolitan area. She is the author of Murder at Morses Pond and has also written an anthology examining various crimes on college campuses. She lives in the Boston area.

The Strategy of Defeat at the Little Big Horn

A Military and Timing Analysis of the Battle

Author: Frederic C. Wagner III

Publisher: McFarland

ISBN: 147661881X

Category: History

Page: 296

View: 1386

The battle that unfolded at the Little Big Horn River on June 25, 1876, marked a watershed in the history of the Plains Indians. While a stunning victory for the Sioux and Cheyenne peoples, it initiated a new and vigorous effort by the U.S. government to rid the west of marauding tribes and to realize the ideal of “Manifest Destiny.” While thousands of books and articles have covered different aspects of the battle, few if any have analyzed the tactics and chronology to arrive at a satisfactory explanation of what befell George Armstrong Custer and the 209 men who died alongside him. This volume seeks to explain the circumstances culminating in the near-destruction of the 7th Cavalry Regiment by a close examination of timing, setting every event to a specific moment based on accounts of the battle’s participants.
