HANGMAN'S NIGHTS Picture this: a Mississippi jail cell with two odd prisoners-one a British dandy, complete with monocle; and the other a Chinaman, clad in traditional Chinese laundryman's garb. As the gallows for them is erected outside, the two are calm and detached-thanks to the drug samarin given to them by their jailer. They're so calm, they take the time to re-tell their life stories to their final visitor, none other than the governor of the state-the only man with the power to commute their sentences and save them from certain death. Join them in their death-cell as their stories unfurl in one of the wildest webwork mysteries ever written by Harry Stephen Keeler.
