1977) A novel by Hugh Pentecost. A psychotic girl had shot and killed Mac Crenshaw. Seconds after, she had been bludgeoned to death by the victim's frantic brother. August 1997 : UK Paperback.

Hugh Pentecost's "The Day the Children Vanished" (1958) is an impressive impossible crime story, but this sort of story is apparently an isolated event in its author's literary career, which generally focuses more on characterization than on fair play puzzle plots. Pentecost is also known for his 1960's treatments of the era's liberal social protest and civil rights movements. Pentecost was clearly sympathetic to these movements, and his fiction shows a life long devotion to liberal causes. Three of them appeared in the American Magazine during 1945-1946, and were collected in book form in 1947 as Memory of Murder. I've never seen this rare book. Ellery Queen reprinted "Volcano in the Mind" (1945) from it in his anthology Champions of Mystery (1977).

Hugh Pentecost was a penname of mystery author Judson Philips (1903–1989). In 1939, his crime story Cancelled in Red won the Red Badge prize, launching his career as a novelist. Philips went on to write nearly one hundred books over the next five decades

Did not read this but want to clear it from the list. It might be good. I lost interest in older Westerns.
Generic packaged cover. It doesn't even have page numbers. Smallest type-face I've seen -- maybe a 7?
I have read 8 books by this author. The stories flow, the characters are believable, and usually more than one plot involved.
I am a big fan of Raine. I like his writing even better than Zane Gray, L'Amour and Larry McMurtry, and I like them just fine. Even though Raine was born in London he was a true product of the old west. He served in the Arizona Rangers, and was friends with Captain Bucky O'Neil, the Arizona Ranger and Deputy Sheriff, who died at San Juan Hill, serving with Col Teddy Roosevelt. In fact one of the characters in a few of his novels was Bucky O'Connor, a thinly veiled copy of the real Bucky O'Neil.
For the true connoisseur of old west novels I highly recommend William McCleod Raine.
