Winterland

by Alan Glynn, release date 2010-02-02, Winterland Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Winterland books, "Timely, topical, and thrilling."-- John Connolly "A terrific read...completely involving."-- George Pelecanos "WINTERLAND sets a dramatically high benchmark for emerald noir. With all the operatic inevitability of Greek tragedy, it anatomises what greed has done to Ireland. A resonant, memorable and uncomfortable read."-- Val McDermid "This is the colossus of Irish crime fiction, what Mystic River did for Dennis Lehane, WINTERLAND should do for Alan Glynn, it is a noir masterpiece, the bar against which all future works will be judged." -- Ken Bruen Winterland is a blistering unputdownable novel about power, lies and the corrupting influence of money. It is the first in a series on the dark and clandestine underside of globalization and announces a compelling new voice in contemporary crime writing. The worlds of business, politics and crime collide when two men with the same name, from the same family, die on the same night—one death is a gangland murder, the other, apparently, a road accident. Was it a coincidence? That's the official version of events. But when a family member, Gina Rafferty, starts asking questions, this notion quickly unravels. Devastated by her loss, Gina's grief is tempered, and increasingly fuelled, by anger—because the more she's told that it was all a coincidence, that gangland violence is commonplace, that people die on our roads every day of the week, the less she's prepared to accept it. Told repeatedly that she should stop asking questions, Gina becomes more determined than ever to find out the truth, to establish a connection between the two deaths—but in doing so she embarks on a path that will push certain powerful people to their limits...

by Rob Conery, release date 2015-05-31, Winterland Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Winterland books, "Winterland is a no-holds-barred tale of a young man who stops at nothing to save a small ski town from falling into the hands of corporate America. If you've ever lived in a ski town this is a must read." -Todd Jones, filmmaker, Teton Gravity Research For Easy Ed Stallings, the past few years have been one long party. Now he's dead broke, and has to flee his home - a decrepit trailer near, but not quite in, Key West. But on his last night in town, he suddenly strikes it rich. While he's out fishing in the mangroves, drug smugglers give him $60,000 worth of marijuana for pointing out where the cops are. It's a pittance to them - a king's ransom to him. Soon Ed finds himself the owner of Trappers, the only real bar in run-down, ramshackle Winterland, Colorado, a town on the verge of going under and fading into the collective memory of the West. In Winterland, the cattle yard has closed. Nearly everyone is out of work. The town has nothing going for it, except one thing. It gets 400 inches of snow a year. The local ski area - nearly bankrupt itself - attracts a growing stream of twentysomething ski bums, vagabonds, dope smokers and freaks. As the ski season approaches, they navigate the high mountain passes and into town; traveling in old cars, VW buses and camper vans. They come not so much because the skiing is exceptional, but because the rents are cheap. They can ski all winter without sleeping in their cars, without begging on the sidewalks, and without making meals out of saltine crackers and free condiment packets. Texas oil magnate Nut Richards wants to change all that. Richards is going to buy the ski area and half the town at distress sale prices, then subdivide the whole place and turn it into a second-rate Aspen or Vail. Part of his plan includes driving the ski bums, and people like Ed Stallings, out of town. Ed and his friends - bartender Danny Stewart, rabblerousing ex-hippie reporter Kent Jennings, and three young women who run the local burrito joint and call themselves Tres Hermanas - band together in a desperate battle against the Big Money that wants to take away their town, and erase a way of life. "A carved up mogul run of money and drugs, big deals, bad decisions, high stakes and higher times." -Charles Graeber, New York Times bestselling author of The Good Nurse "A bright, funny and brilliant novel." - John Ennis, actor, Mr. Show
