Hank Prince is a baseball player turned private eye in Atlanta. Literate, flip and often drunk, Prince wakens from a binge to learn that an old friend, Tony Browning, a small-time drug dealer, is missing. Hired to find Tony by his wife, Prince suspects drug-business trouble but he doesn't move quickly enough; first Tony's wife is shot to death, then Tony, too, is gunned down. One twist develops when Prince discovers a jewel-encrusted medieval cross hidden in the victim's house; another comes when the man's boss hires Prince to clear his organization of the murders. While alternating between states of sobriety and inebriation, Prince figures out who has masterminded the killings and frame-ups, and arranges that the kingpin be brought to justice
A distant flame by Philip Lee Williams( Book )

7 editions published between 2004 and 2011 in English and held by 303 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the spring of 1864, the Confederate Army in Georgia is faced with the onrushing storm of General William T. Sherman's troops. A young sharpshooter for the South, Charlie Merrill, who has suffered many losses in his life already, must find a way to endure---and grow---if he is to survive the battles that will culminate in July at the gates of Atlanta. From the opening salvos on Rocky Face Ridge near Dalton, through the trials of Resaca and Kennesaw Mountain, Charlie must face the overwhelming force of the Federal army and a growing uncertainty about his place in the war. Never before has the Atlanta Campaign been rendered---in all its swift and terrible action---with such attention to history or with writing that reaches the level of art. This crucial episode in the Civil War's western theater comes alive with unexcelled power and drama as it unfolds in soldiers' hands and hearts. Throughout the course of the novel, Charlie's life is laid out in powerful detail. The experiences from his childhood, through the war, and into his twilight years are to a great extent on his mind half a century later when he is to give a major speech in the park of his small Georgia town. A Distant Flame is a book about the cost of war and the running conflict that led Sherman's Army to the Battle of Atlanta---and the March to the Sea. It stands as a testament to love, dedication, and growth, from the Civil War's fields of fire to the slow steps of old age. "A powerful work that surely will become a classic of Civil War fiction. A superb book."--Robert K. Krick, author of Stonewall Jackson at Cedar Mountain. "This strikingly fine novel leaves an indelible impression on the reader long after he puts it down. In some ways it reminds me of the wonderful Raintree County. As Stephen Crane once said about Civil War historical writing, 'I want to be there.' In A Distant Flame, Mr. Williams takes us there, and it's a landscape that captures the heart." - Robert J. Mrazek, author of Unholy Fire. "A Distant Flame takes a sultry summer day in 1914 and weaves it into a page-turning tale of Civil War Georgia. This is not 'moonlight and magnolias, ' but Philip Lee Williams's bittersweet story of life, love, and loss in a small Southern town will touch your heart and move you to tears." - David Evans, author of Sherman's Horsemen. "The dramatic wartime events of A Distant Flame are written in the heart of Charlie Merrill---sharpshooter, lover, pilgrim, and friend of General Cleburne. This intense and memorable story of battlefield and hearth tells us that it is high time to assess and treasure the work of Philip Lee Williams." - Marly Youmans, author of The Wolf Pit, winner of the Michael Shaara Award. "A Distant Flame is the best story yet written about the Atlanta campaign and life on the home front in Civil War Georgia. It is also much more. It blends scrupulously researched history with powerful narrative to produce a compelling, multidimensional story of one man's life as shaped by the Civil War over a span of fifty years. It is a story of war, love, and community in a small north Georgia town, brilliantly told, full of insights into the complex impact of the Civil War on everyday Southerners." - Thomas G. Dyer, author of Secret Yankees: The Union Circle in Confederate Atlanta
