19th-century Anglo-Irish politician and statesman. Equally successful was the Intercepted Letter from Canton (1805), also anonymous, a satire on Dublin society in the guise of a report on the manners of the Chinese at Quang-tchen on the "Li-fee". During this period a rather scathing poem attributed to Croker led to the suicide of actor John Edwin, husband of Elizabeth Rebecca Edwin

Gay PI Declan Colette finds himself in the middle of a gang war between resurgent Japanese mobsters and the black gangsters who expanded operations during World War II. Complicating matters is crime boss Max Harrold. Since then he’s been scratching out a living as a cut-rate PI, drinking too much, and flirting with danger. Bridger's Run.

BRIDGER'S RUN is a great way to get a feel for the countryside of Central Florida, all the way to old St. Petersburg. It's a beautiful, strange part of our nation, and Jon Wilson captures the essence. I wouldn't confine the reading to 12-year-olds. It's a treat for adults, too. A darn good read. Published by Thriftbooks. com User, 18 years ago. First of all, I may not completely objective since Jon Wilson used to be my boss at the St. Petersburg Evening Independent. I don't read much fiction and even fewer westerns. Still I think Bridger's Run is a darn good read.

Cracker Westerns are rip-roarin, action-packed, can't-put-'em-down tales set in the frontier days of Florida. They are full of adventure, real heroes, and vivid, authentic details that bring Florida's history to life.

Tom Bridger, the handsome, cocky son of a wealthy New York businessman, has come down in 1885 to find his long-lost uncle and a hidden treasure. When he arrives in Jacksonville, he finds a rough-and-ready port town where he quickly learns a man is only as good as his fists. Though he's a city slicker who loves a game of chess and looks like an easy mark for the desperate men lurking in the shadows, Tom's also a trained boxer, lightning quick with his hands and afraid of no one. He heads west across Florida's wild frontier on the trail of the treasure, first on a riverboat to Palatka, then on a train to Ocala and Brooksville. His quick temper brings several brushes with death, including gator-filled swamps and a footrace with a stagecoach. There are villains aplenty: the wooden-legged Elijah Dicken, the slick but mysterious Mr. Satin, and the rough DeBell clan. But Bridger also finds friends in Cheese Joseph, Archie Hankins, and the lovely and feisty Miss Lily. And he finds much more than he bargained for on the deserted peninsula west of Tampa. Back in New York, his uncle Mike had trained young Tom in the art of boxing, and it all comes down to a match (London rules, i.e., no gloves) at the Point of Pines between young Tom Bridger and Bongo Jones, the Key West Slasher. The story opens with a spectacular shipwreck, and the ending tops that with the big fistfight, a riot, a death, and a surprise.

Lots of action; main character gets himself in trouble.

I love a good cracker western and this is defiantly in that category. It is like getting a good history lesson and being entertained at the same time. I enjoyed this book and anyone who likes to read about the frontier days either here in Florida or elsewhere for that matter will enjoy it also.

Too many of my trips to Florida have centered around the Orlando airport! BRIDGER'S RUN is a great way to get a feel for the countryside of Central Florida, all the way to old St. Petersburg. It's a beautiful, strange part of our nation, and Jon Wilson captures the essence. I wouldn't confine the reading to 12-year-olds. It's a treat for adults, too.

First of all, I may not completely objective since Jon Wilson used to be my boss at the St. Petersburg Evening Independent. I don't read much fiction and even fewer westerns. Still I think Bridger's Run is a darn good read that kept me guessing till the last page. Jon's shown his versatility as a writer by penning a good old page turning, out of the frying pan and into the fire cracker western. His knowledge and love of Florida history is evident throughout the book. I hope he writes another one soon. Jeff C. Young
