The fractured Huey fell out of the sky like a greased brick. The untold outcome was unfolding all too fast. Bad shit, boys! Was all he said. No one heard him. They were busy taking their last breath of air and they knew it. There was no time for hope. The Huey had been caught in the dead mans curve. The craft was too low and too slow and all the lift was gone too fast for any type of emergency recovery. They went down hard and fast smashing nose down into the trees. Everything plastic cracked and shattered immediately. The tree branches loudly and unmercifully whipped and peeled at the sides as the resulting self generated wind from the fall blasted in through the open side doors. The rotors joined in by contributing a lot of damage to the hull and the crew. The spinning rotors turned themselves and the trees to splintering shrapnel. The trees did little to break the fall after the initial contact and the Huey plunged to the ground and practically self-disintegrated. The crew and passenger were instantly killed. That fast, they were gone. Some were still in the skeleton of their craft and others tossed out haphazardly. Their body organs crushed as they absorbed the impact of being tossed first against the trees and then the unforgiving ground.

For a hot, bloody week Slade haunted the trail of the vicious outlaw whose senseless cruelties shocked El Paso. One by one he whittled down Juan Covelo’s gang of killers, but always the black-hooded leader escaped his blazing irons. Now Slade knew that he was up against an outlaw every bit as fiendish and elusive as his arch-enemy Veck Sosna. When the Ranger ace fingered his guns and stepped into Coveto’s hillside hideout he was grimly prepared for a deadly duel in the dark that meant either his own death or a killer’s doom!

She lit the joint, and seconds later the harsh-sweet odor of the marijuana was drifting over the trail. “The colors. It makes them so real, you know.” “Maybe we'd better be heading back,” he said. “They'll miss us.” “Miss us?

For 132 years the ghastly and horrific murders committed in London's East End by the infamous 'Jack the Ripper' have gripped and baffled the world. The Ripper commenced his series of atrocities at the end of August and continued freely until the beginning of November 1888 when inexplicably the murders stopped In all, five women were brutally murdered and savagely mutilated in the most unimaginable way. The killing spree centered in and around the impoverished rabbit warren of alleys and rookeries of Whitechapel. The invisible killer was never caught despite the very best intentions of the police and thousands of would be detectives following the grim proceedings. Since those dark days of murders committed by gaslight, the mystery of Jack the Ripper has become the ultimate cold case among crime historians and arm chair researchers worldwide, with a multitude of books, plays and dramas all hoping to solve what London's finest Victorian detectives failed to do Given the space of time much has changed and the crime scene locations and landscape in which the Ripper and his victims would known would be in many parts unrecognizable to them. Equally to the modern day Londoner or visitor the locations would be very much largely unknown until now. True Crime and Social historians, Richard C Cobb and Mark Davis, return to the Whitechapel of 1888 to see what remains from this dark time in London's history and to take the reader on a step-by-step tour of the modern world of Jack the Ripper, giving a detailed history of the victims, the crimes and the police investigation. We also look at other victims (outside the accepted five ) which may have been killed by the same man. Using the original police reports, state of the art photographs, unseen images and diagrams, they present the truth about what actually happened in the autumn of 1888 and what remains of Jack the Ripper's London today. They also focus on the ever changing face of London's End End, giving the reader a real sense of how the past meets the present in arguably London's most vibrant and cultural quarter where the shadow of the Ripper is never too far away.
