Where Law Ends

After a brief prologue describing the tragic fate of a captive American sailor in Tripoli, the story moves ahead almost half a century to the summer of 1850.

“…Foley masterfully invokes the horrific conditions of cave prisons and the dehumanizing toil of enslaved captive passengers and seamen along the early – 19th century Barbary Coast of North Africa…”  Publishers Weekly

What they're saying about Where Law Ends

Book Reviews
  • Kevin Foley's book about the hipocrisy and greed in the old West is fascinating, couldn't put it down. His style of writing is so descriptive with out being verbose, puts you there, you can feel the cold, smell the trees and landscape and be blinded by the gunsmoke. When a writer can capture your attention so completely that you feel moral outrage and revulsion at corruption and injustice, he has done a fine job, worthy of the 5 stars.
  • Foley does an excellent job of ramping up the tension and keeping the reader involved. It's always fun to read a book that you can put a new spin on historical fact and make you think, "What if...?"
  • This well-researched Western gives Plummer a long-delayed day in court and completely drygulches such self serving histories as the ex-vigilante Thomas J. Dimsdale's The Vigilantes of Montana.
