Product description

Product Description


The line between history and mythology is razor thin—and the American Southwest often erases the line altogether. We might never disentangle crime-fact from fiction, but this book will transport you to Billy the Kid’s real-life stomping grounds, legendary Tombstone, the childhood home of one of the worst al Qaeda terrorists, and the scenes of dozens of crimes throughout Arizona and New Mexico’s history.

OUTLAW SOUTHWEST continues the series that critics, true-crime fans, historians, and travelers have hailed as “thorough and unflinching” and “the best damn crime travel series ever published!” Dozens of fascinating stories in OUTLAW SOUTHWEST are told in the same fast-paced, enthralling voice that’s made Ron Franscell one of America’s most beloved crime writers … and the Crime Buff’s Guides a three-time winner of the Book of the Year!

“It’s a breezy, guilty-pleasure read—perfect for summer vacations because you can put it down and pick it up without losing your place (but you won’t want to put it down). For those of who week true-crime stories, it’s a fascinating look at the dark side.”—TUCSON (AZ) SENTINEL

“Well researched … Armchair detectives will enjoy the tales, but the book’s purpose is to take the reader to the scene of the crime.”—ALBUQUERQUE JOURNAL

About the author: Ron Franscell’s bestselling true crime THE DARKEST NIGHT has been praised as one of the genre’s modern classics. In addition to this popular Crime Buff’s Guide series, he has written the Edgar-nominated “Morgue: A Life in Death,” “Delivered from Evil,” and “Sourtoe Cocktail Club.” His debut novel “Angel Fire," a USA Today bestseller, was listed by the San Francisco Chronicle as one of the 100 Best Novels of the 20th Century West.

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't Travel the Southwest Without It! 24 May 2017

I live in Tucson, and I wish I had this book sooner! My husband and I like to take weekend road trips, and this gem of a book will join us on our future adventures. We just recently took a drive to Tombstone, and it would have been a much better trip if we had Franscell's book. It is packed with so much information, and even a GPS guide to get you there! What an awesome addition! There are so many interesting stories and facts to absorb yourself in, and Franscell has done an amazing job of bringing them all together! Bravo!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fast-paced and compelling 20 April 2017
By Peter Eichstaedt - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
I'm a fan of Ron Franscell. His new book compiles some of the most outrageous and little known crimes and characters across the Southwest. The descriptions and details are entertaining and unforgettable. Best of all, if you want to go see these locales up close and personal, he tells you how! Pack up the RV! They range from Billy the Kid to Anwar al-Awlaki, the radical Islamic imam who was born and lived in Las Cruces, New Mexico. Ron is a former journalist turned novelist turned top-notch true crime writer. He carries an abiding fascination for little-known details of people, places and events in recent history and the distant past. This book is fast-paced, built for road warriors and armchair bandits alike. Cast aside any fears of "alternate facts." This is the real deal.

5.0 out of 5 stars great outlaw past 29 April 2017
By deha - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Ron Franscell’s research in this book is simply amazing! HE has basically re-mapped the west, specifically pinpointing where all of our most notorious outlaws lived, performed their gruesome deeds, and died. On top of that, he's uncovered riveting stories about outlaws in faraway corners of the states that very few even knew about. For everyone interested in Arizona’s' great outlaw past, this is the guide to get. Thank you for sharing this grand walk-about of the outlaws of the South-West.I was given this book to read from Story Cartel for my honest review. Thank you, I loved it, Highly recommend this book for those who enjoy History.
5.0 out of 5 stars Great history book on the darker side, with GPS coordinates 6 June 2017
By Montzalee Wittmann - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Crime Buff's Guide To OUTLAW SOUTHWEST (Crime Buff's Guides Book 1) by Ron Franscell is a great book I was allowed to read from NetGalley. It is filled with crimes and exact GPS locations of those crimes or significant things related to those crimes of the southwest from about mid 1800's to about present day. The crimes varied greatly and so did some of the punishments. Plenty of photos. I guess if you were an avid traveler and liked to look these things up, you would certainly have the exact coordinates to do so. Some of the more recent ones, ones I should know more about, I did learn more interesting tidbits. I enjoyed this book. A good history book even if it was on the darker side.
