No one suspects murder when astronaut Pete O'Kelley dies a hit-run accident—until his widow, Marlow, learns he had deposited a quarter of a million bucks in a bank account and spent it all in four months. Then Pete's executor, a NASA administrator, is found dead on a picnic table at the Johnson Space Center, a meat cleaver planted in his back. Not wanting to tell anyone about the money, but knowing the deaths are connected, Marlow turns sleuth to track down a bold killer who leaves no clues. Despite painful revelations, she must dig out the truth about her brief, turbulent marriage and about Pete's death. In this first of a mystery series, Marlow O'Kelley, an irreverent structural engineer who renovates homes for rich Texans, battles police and NASA poobahs as she untangles the intrigue surrounding the players who would kill to win a multimillion-dollar government contract. Fast paced and tightly plotted, Till Murder Do Us Part is a riveting, brain-teasing murder mystery.

It is easy to forget that the death penalty was an accepted aspect of Canadian culture and criminal justice until 1976. The Practice of Execution in Canada is not about what led some to the gallows and others to escape it. Rather, it examines how the routine rituals and practices of execution can be seen as a crucial social institution. Drawing on hundreds of case files, Ken Leyton-Brown shows that from trial to interment, the practice of execution was constrained by law and tradition. Despite this, however, the institution was not rigid. Criticism and reform pushed executions out of the public eye, and in so doing, stripped them of meaningful ritual and made them more vulnerable to criticism.
