Hired to find a killer, a drifter rides into a deadly family feud, in this action-packed novel from an award-winning storyteller of the West.
For $10,000, Tip Woodring must ride into a frontier town full of murderers and find one particular killer. The deal—offered by Rig Holman, a saloon owner who liked the way Woodring knocked out a nasty drunk in front of his bar—could make him a fortune . . . or cost him his life.
Last spring, a prospector named Blackie Mayfell walked into Holman’s office with $15,000 in gold and a strange proposition. He asked Holman to keep the money and get it to his daughter if he died, handing over a little extra for insurance. Then Mayfell was slain by someone who wanted a piece of his claim. Holman wants to know who pulled the trigger, and Woodring will find out—or die trying.
Filled with stunning action scenes, memorable characters, and authentic historical atmosphere, Bounty Guns is a suspenseful tale: part mystery, part western, all Luke Short.
