"After the breakup of his marriage and his forced relocation to Buenos Aires, Rob Cavenaugh's life was going downhill fast. Until he met Elena. She was smart and beautiful and danced like a dream. But she had a history that she said he would never understand, a history that went back to the Dirty War of the 1970s, when government death squads brought a new word to the world: the Disappeared. Then he learned that the past is never over in Argentina. Beyond the bright lights and the seductive tango music lay the open wounds of kidnapping, torture, and betrayal--and one last chance for redemption."--Page [2] of jacket

"All the virtues of old-fashioned story-telling. . ."--Karen Joy Fowler, author of The Sweetheart Season. Laurie Moss left Texas and headed west, determined to make it big as part of an L.A. rock and a single-minded drive to succeed, Laurie's career takes off-helped along by a leading rock journalist willing to tell her whole story. And what a story it is including everything from the big breaks to the brutality of the music industry. But there's more to Laurie's rise to fame than a colorful chronicle of the contemporary music scene. It's an epic tale of talent, fame, and woman's struggle to make it in a male-dominated business-in short, it's a story you won't soon forget
By bizarre hands : stories by Joe R Lansdale( Book )

2 editions published between 1989 and 2016 in English and held by 52 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Small-town juvenile delinquents, Pentecostal snake-handlers, zombies, psychopaths, and assorted freaks populate these witty and gritty tales of horror by a master of the genre. The suspenseful, action-packed tales range from visions of a post-apocalyptic world ("Tight Little Stitches in a Dead Man's Back," "On the Far Side of the Cadillac Desert with Dead Folks") to alternative histories ("Trains Not Taken," "Letter from the South, Two Moons West of Nacogdoches"). A dozen other stories of gruesome violence and utter depravity include "The Pit," in which car trouble develops into a life-or-death struggle; "Night They Missed the Horror Show," involving an encounter with ornery rednecks; and "Hell Through a Windshield," in which a drive-in movie provides a one-way ticket to another dimension. By Bizarre Hands, Joe R. Lansdale's debut collection of short stories, was nominated for a Bram Stoker Award for Best Fiction, and two of its tales have received Stoker awards. Lansdale's novella Bubba Ho-Tep was adapted into a 2002 film, and his Hap and Leonard detective stories inspired the Sundance Channel television series. This edition features an Introduction by science-fiction novelist Lewis Shiner and an Afterword by horror fiction author Ramsey Campbell. Suggested for mature readers"--Publisher's website

Dave stepped out of Bastrop Federal Prison and into the home of one Margueritte Johnson, aka the Old Lady. The Old Lady passed on and left behind her house and twenty-three cats. The cats need a caretaker, and can pay generously for the service. Dave will be that caretaker, or so he thinks, but there are others with an eye on the Johnson estate. Soon Dave is caught up in a whirlwind of anarchists, golddiggers, skateboard punks, lawyers, hackers and arsonists, a population of dropouts and misfits who will do anything to avoid doing anything.
