Howard Henley is not a killer. That seems obvious to lawyer Janet Moodie when she's called in to work his appeal. Her new client was convicted of arranging the shooting of a drug dealer, but the man who pulled the trigger has always said Henley had nothing to do with it. So why is Henley the one on death row?
Janet's new case takes her from the desperate world of prison gangs, where men are murdered as an initiation rite, to the courtroom, where a mental illness might mean the difference between life and death. Can she convince a judge of her client's innocence before it's too late?

"The murder investigation allows Loewenstein to probe into the lives of proud people who would never expose their troubles to strangers. People like John Hodge, the town's most respected lawyer, who knocks his wife around, and kindhearted Etha Jennings, who surreptitiously delivers home-cooked meals to the hobo camp outside town because one of the young Civilian Conservation Corps workers reminds her of her dead son. Loewenstein's sensitive treatment of these dark days in the Dust Bowl era offers little humor but a whole lot of compassion."
--New York Times Book Review
"This richly detailed historical mystery brings the Dust Bowl to life, with the hardscrabble farms and semirural community barely coping with the losses of farms and local businesses. This evocative first volume in a new series should appeal to readers of Larry D. Sweazy's Marjorie Trumaine mysteries or Donis Casey's Oklahoma-set Alafair Tucker books. Fans of narrative nonfiction, including Timothy Egan's The Worst Hard Time, the book that inspired this work, may also want to give it a try."
--Library Journal, STARRED review
"Death of a Rainmaker is far more than a murder mystery set in the Dust Bowl of the 1930s. It is a poignant recollection of the desperation of farmers whose land, livestock, and household are in foreclosure, a stunning description of a dust storm that leaves imaginary specks of dirt on the reader's neck, a sensitive rendering of tough times and their toll on the psyche. Some books have such fine character detail--McCance's choice of a Common Sense Traveler's Notebook, suitable for a professional lawman, not a 'CCC pity case,' for example--and complex, nuanced storyline that the reader naturally slows down to savor the experience. This is one of them."
--Historical Novel Society
"Set in Vermillion, Okla., in 1935, this superb series launch from Loewenstein...beautifully captures the devastation of the land and people in the Dust Bowl."
--Publishers Weekly, STARRED review, Pick of the Week for October 8, 2018
"Loewenstein movingly describes the events and the people, from farm eviction auctions and hobo villages to Dish Nights at the movies. She vividly brings to life a town filled with believable characters, from a young woman learning her own worth to the deputy sheriff figuring out where his loyalties lie. This warm and evocative novel captures a time and place, with well-researched details shown through the lives and circumstances of one American town."
When a rainmaker is bludgeoned to death in the pitch-blackness of a colossal dust storm, small-town sheriff Temple Jennings shoulders yet another burden in the hard times of the 1930s Dust Bowl. The killing only magnifies Temple's ongoing troubles: a formidable opponent in the upcoming election, the repugnant burden of enforcing farm foreclosures, and his wife's lingering grief over the loss of their eight-year-old son.
As the sheriff and his young deputy investigate the murder, their suspicions focus on a teenager, Carmine, serving with the Civilian Conservation Corps. The deputy, himself a former CCCer, struggles with remaining loyal to the corps while pursuing his own aspirations as a lawman.
When the investigation closes in on Carmine, Temple's wife, Etha, quickly becomes convinced of his innocence and sets out to prove it. But Etha's own probe soon reveals a darker web of secrets, which imperil Temple's chances of reelection and cause the husband and wife to confront their long-standing differences about the nature of grief.

For more than twenty years, management expert Bruce Tulgan hasbeen asking, “What are the most difficult challenges youface when it comes to managing people?”
Regardless of industry or job title, managers cite the same coreissues—27 recurring challenges: the superstar whom themanager is afraid of losing, the slacker whom the manager cannotfigure out how to motivate, the one with an attitude problem, andthe two who cannot get along, to name just a few.
It turns out that when things are going wrong in a managementrelationship, the common denominator is almost always unstructured,low substance, hit-or-miss communication.
The real problem is that most managers are “managing onautopilot” without even realizing it—until somethinggoes wrong. And if you are managing on autopilot, then somethingalmost always does.
The 27 Challenges Managers Face shows exactly how tobreak the vicious cycle and gain control of managementrelationships. No matter what the issue, Tulgan shows that thefundamentals are all you need. The very best managers hold ongoingone-on-one conversations that make expectations clear, trackperformance, offer feedback, and hold people accountable.
For every workplace problem—even the most awkward anddifficult—The 27 Challenges Managers Face shows how totailor conversations to solve situations familiar to every manager.Tulgan offers clear approaches for turning around bad attitudes,reducing friction and conflict, improving low performers, retainingtop performers, and even addressing your own personal burnout.
The 27 Challenges Managers Face is an indispensableresource for managers at all levels, one anyone managing anyonewill want to keep on hand. One challenge at a time, you’llsee how the most effective managers use the fundamentals ofmanagement to proactively resolve (nearly) any problem a managercould face.

On the right side of the law—sort of—Sebastian Rudd is not your typical street lawyer. His office is a customized bulletproof van, complete with Wi-Fi, a bar, a small fridge, and fine leather chairs. He has no firm, no partners, and only one employee: his heavily armed driver, who also so happens to be his bodyguard, law clerk, confidant, and golf caddie. Sebastian drinks small-batch bourbon and carries a gun. He defends people other lawyers won’t go near: a drug-addled, tattooed kid rumored to be in a satanic cult; a vicious crime lord on death row; a homeowner arrested for shooting at a SWAT team that mistakenly invaded his house. Why these clients? Because Sebastian believes everyone is entitled to a fair trial—even if he has to bend the law to secure one.
