    Sheriff Bo Tully is the kind of western lawman who's as good with the ladies as he is with his guns, and he never lets a death threat get in the way of a good barbecue. He's a man with a sense of humor, which comes in handy when trying to establish order in Blight County.In this latest tale, Tully pursues a seventy-five-year-old missing persons case in which a pair of gold miners (a two-man drilling team known as a double-jack) mysteriously disappeared just as they hit the mother lode in a remote part of Blight County. Meanwhile, a second, more threatening case looms large. After serving only two months of a life sentence, a mentally unstable murderer named Kincaid—a nasty piece of work if there ever was one—manages to escape prison, setting his sights on killing the man who put him behind bars: one Sheriff Bo Tully. In an effort to lead his would-be killer into the open, and also to do a little gold prospecting and fishing while he's at it, Tully heads north with his ex-sheriff father, Pap, and his friend and expert tracker, Dave.As the two cases play themselves out, Sheriff Tully finds himself hunting down one murderer who's probably long dead, and being hunted by another who's very much alive.

    The first illustrated monograph on writer, journalist, and director Nora Ephron, the visionary behind When Harry 
    Met Sally, Sleepless in Seattle, and You’ve Got Mail 
    With her singular voice, Nora Ephron flourished as a dominant force in the entertainment industry, focusing on 
    the idiosyncrasies of romance that were universally relatable. The women in her stories paralleled reality—the 
    veil was lifted, the glossy sheen removed. Her protagonists share an unwavering sense of humor about life’s 
    mishaps, and they never take themselves too seriously—like Julie trying to master the art of cooking lobsters 
    in Julie & Julia, Sally’s theatrical fake orgasm in Katz’s deli in When Harry Met Sally, or Rachel perfecting a key 
    kime pie only to throw it in her cheating husband’s face in Heartburn. 
    Through her keenly self-aware humor and semi-autobiographical stories, Ephron left behind a groundbreaking 
    legacy as a beloved journalist, essayist, screenwriter, author, producer, director, and feminist who delivered 
    stories of resilience embedded in sharp wit and upper-crust landscapes. Through that lens, she became 
    emblematic of rom-coms, shifting and redefining conversations around the complexities of relationships and 
    the women who have them. Nora Ephron at the Movies offers an unfiltered look at Ephron as a champion of the 
    rom-com and as a feminist Hollywood trailblazer. It explores her life and work by pairing detailed criticism with 
    exclusive interviews with Ephron’s key collaborators, including Andie MacDowell and Jenn Kaytin Robinson, 
    to add color and nuance to her life and legacy.
