One hundred years ago the nation reeled at the brutal rape and murder of thirteen-year-old Mary Phagan and the arrest of her accused killer, Leo Frank. Frank's trial and conviction generated fiery emotions in the people of Georgia and across the nation. When John Slaton, governor of Georgia, commuted Frank's sentence from death to life imprisonment, a group of prominent, well-known men broke into the prison. They kidnapped and lynched Leo Frank. The repercussions are still being felt.Now, the great-niece and namesake of Mary Phagan, whose startling resemblance to the murdered girl has haunted her life, breaks the vow of silence imposed on the Phagan family by Fannie Phagan Coleman, mother of little Mary. She discloses for the first time the family's side of the affair. She recounts in ghastly detail Mary Phagan's murder and its grim legacy. She reveals the heretofore private Phagan family records: her grandfather's secret meeting with Jim Conley, whose testimony convicted Leo Frank; her meetings with the Georgia State Board of Pardons and Paroles; and her interview with Alonzo Mann, whose revelations about Jim Conley and Leo Frank in 1982 brought the nation's attention back to the case and led to Leo Frank's posthumous pardon.The Murder of Little Mary Phagan is the definitive account of one of the most famous crimes of the century and its continuing aftermath.

She played a significant role in organizing mining strikes in West Virginia and Colorado, as well as the Pittsburgh steel strike of 1919. She was instrumental in the formation of the United Mine Workers union (UMW) in 1890 and the Industrial Workers of the World (IWW) in 1905.An important addition to feminist literature, the Autobiography of Mother Jones is also «a great piece of working-class literature…probably the most readable book in the whole field of American labor history.» — Clarence Darrow.

Nothing heavy happens there. It's a friendly workingman's bar run by his good friend Rooney, who enjoys gathering eccentric customers.

The man has come there to meet someone and he thinks it's Tim. Tim's wayward sense of humour lets the misconception stand for a moment and that's all it takes: the stranger hands Tim a fat manila envelope, saying, 'Half of it's there; the rest when she's gone,' and then he's out the door.In the envelope Tim finds the photograph of a woman, her name and address written on the back; and several thick packets of hundred-dollar bills.When an intense-looking man sits down where the first stranger sat and glances at the manila envelope, Tim knows he's the one who was supposed to get it. Shaken, thinking fast, Tim says he's had a change of heart. He removes the picture of the woman and then hands the envelope to the stranger. 'Half what we agreed,' he says. 'For doing nothing. Call it a no-kill fee.'Tim is left holding a photo of a pretty woman, but his sense of fun has led him into a very dangerous world from which there is no way back. The company of strangers has cost him his peace of mind, and possibly his life.
