I'Da Danced at His Hanging
ISBN: 0738807788

Xlibris Corp. 2000

I'da Danced at his Hanging, an 115,000 word novel, is timely because of the public being made aware of men who claim religious associations for the purpose of gaining political advantage. The novel is set in Kalispell, Montana in the 1890's. It tracks the life of a young Texas man, Ron Hammer Neil, and brings him into conflict with a powerful political figure who attracts women and in spite of his religious pretensions, uses his position to enjoy their favors repeatedly. He also uses his church affiliations as a mask for his other more deadly activities.
