Inhaltsangabe: In 1832, an 18-year-old girl was charged with murdering her young husband. In 1833, Frankie Silver became the first woman in the state of North Carolina to be hanged for murder. But was she guilty? More than one hundred years later, Tennessee Sheriff Spencer Arrowood is determined to reveal the truth behind unanswered questions. Obsessed by the story of Frankie Silver, Arrowood is investigating a case that has many parallels to the long ago murder. Lafayette Fate Harkryder, convicted of murdering a young couple hiking the Appalachian Trail, is scheduled to be executed, and Sheriff Arrowood has been summoned to be his witness. But is an innocent man about to die? The time is near and the executioner may yet carry out his solemn duty before Arrowood finds answers from the past that can save Fate Harkryder from Frankie Silver's tragic end.

Sharyn McCrumb's two previous novels, The Rosewood Casket and She Walks These Hills, were New York Times bestsellers.
Among her honors are the Edgar, Agatha, Macavity, Anthony, Nero, and Outstanding Contribution to Appalachian Literature awards; she is the two-time winner of the award for the Best Appalachian Novel.
Her novels have also been named Notable Books of the Year by both The New York Times and the Los Angeles Times.

Rezension: Sharyn McCrumb is one of the major wonders of the mystery world. Her books about forensic anthropologist Elizabeth MacPherson (including Highland Laddie Gone) are strong, meaty contemporary stories; her comic novels ( Bimbos of the Death Sun, Zombies of the Gene Pool) are delightful satires. And then there's the jewel in her crown, the series known as the Ballad novels (including The Hangman's Beautiful Daughter and The Rosewood Casket) where the third-generation Appalachian resident McCrumb sews together what she calls "colored scraps of legends, ballads and fragments of rural life and local tragedy" into books that are like Appalachian quilts. The Ballad of Frankie Silver is the fifth in the Ballad series, and it might well be the best. The blend between the old story and the new is perfect, as Sheriff Spencer Arrowood digs into the 1832 case of the first woman ever hanged for murder in North Carolina--18-year-old Frankie Silver, charged with dismembering her husband--while some disturbing new evidence is surfacing about another, much more recent capital crime. If you have friends who don't read mysteries but liked Cold Mountain, pointing them toward McCrumb might be the start of something big. --Dick Adler
