Bill Brooks lives, works, and writes in Indiana. He has led trips as a wilderness guide, served in the Marine Corps and reported for several newspapers. This is his first novel, though he has gone on to publish nearly 30 subsequent historical novels, including A Bullet for Billy and Winter Kill.From Library Journal:
Veteran Texas Ranger Henry Dollar proves his integrity and competence as an investigator ("Buscadero") in this highly melodramatic novel of the Wild West of the early 1880s, when the gun was law. Charmer Johnny Montana--robber, gambler, and killer--is caught with Katie Swenson, the woman who loves him, and sent on to Hanging Judge Parker in Arkansas for trial and certain hanging for both. Several tough characters give chase to forestall the trial by killing Montana--their motive being revenge. Here, the plot thickens and suspense mounts as Dollar rides to rescue the prisoners and their escort. The climax is violent, bloody, and corpse-strewn. In his first "Evans Novel of the West," the author shows promise with his knack for storytelling. Recommended for public libraries.
