Summer of the dead by Julia Keller( Book )

"High summer in Acker's Gap, West Virginia--but no one's enjoying the rugged natural landscape. Not while a killer stalks the small town and its hard-luck inhabitants. County prosecutor Bell Elkins and Sheriff Nick Fogelsong are stymied by a murderer who seems to come and go like smoke on the mountain. At the same time, Bell must deal with the return from prison of her sister, Shirley--who, like Bell, carries the indelible scars of a savage past. In the third mystery chronicling the journey of Bell Elkins and her return to her Appalachian hometown, we also meet Lindy Crabtree--a coal miner's daughter with dark secrets of her own, secrets that threaten to explode into even more violence. Acker's Gap is a place of loveliness and brutality, of isolation and fierce attachments--a place where the dead rub shoulders with the living, and demand their due"--
Mr. Gatling's terrible marvel : the gun that changed everything and the misunderstood genius who invented it by Julia Keller( Book )
7 editions published between 2008 and 2014 in English and held by 957 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Although little used during the American Civil War--the time in which it was invented--the Gatling gun soon changed the nature of warfare and the course of history. Discharging 200 shots per minute with alarming accuracy, the world's first machine gun became vitally important to protecting and expanding America's overseas interests. Its inventor, Richard Gatling, was famous in his own time for creating and improving many industrial designs, from bicycles and steamship propellers to flush toilets. Gatling actually proposed his gun as a way of saving lives, thinking it would decrease the size of armies. Cultural critic Julia Keller's account of the invention, its misunderstood creator, and its tremendous impact on world events also shows how its combination of ingenuity, idealism, and destructive power, perfectly exemplified the paradox of America's rise as a world superpower.--From publisher description

Packend und authentisch: das gefeierte Romandebüt der Pulitzerpreisträgerin Julia Keller Seit vier Jahren arbeitet Bell Elkins - neununddreissig, geschieden, alleinerziehende Mutter einer siebzehnjährigen Tochter - als Bezirksstaatsanwältin von Raythune County, West Virginia. Doch als drei alte Männer durch gezielte Kopfschüsse getötet werden, ist es nicht ihr Berufsethos, das die engagierte Juristin sofort zum Tatort eilen lässt, sondern ihr Mutterinstinkt. Denn die Bluttat ereignete sich in dem Fast Food Restaurant, in dem Bell mit ihrer Tochter Carla verabredet war. Carla löst sich nur langsam aus ihrem Schockzustand - doch in ihrem tiefsten Inneren weiss sie, dass sie den Täter erkannt hat. Und dieses Wissen bringt Mutter und Tochter in höchste Gefahr ... Die mit dem Pulitzerpreis ausgezeichnete Journalistin Julia Keller wuchs in den Bergen West Virginias auf, kennt also die Menschen und die Landschaft, die die Kulisse für ihr gefeiertes Romandebüt bieten. Heute lebt die Autorin in Chicago und Ohio und arbeitet an dem nächsten Fall für die engagierte Bezirksstaatsanwältin Bell Elkins
