South of Rising Sun

South of Rising Sun McCall WebU. S. Marshal, Alistair Taggart, has spent almost seven years protecting the citizens of Bleeding Kansas from the lawlessness surrounding its push to achieve statehood. Now, Kansas has entered the Union as a free state, but the violence threatens to continue when the Civil War erupts only three months later.

During one of Taggart's regular visits to the former Kansas territorial capital of Lecompton, local rancher, James Harper, enlists the marshal's help to catch the cattle rustlers intent on stealing his livelihood. But Kansas is just beginning its reign as the wildest state in the Union, and Taggart must also deal with Jayhawkers, highwaymen, unpredictable weather and those hell-bent on revenge. Taggart finds his job further complicated by a runaway slave and animals gone delinquent, along with his own concerns that age may finally be catching up with him.

Solving the case will prove harder than Taggart ever imagined, and its resolution will cost him dearly. Sometimes, justice only comes with a price.

Twin Rivers

Twin RiversWhen Clay Westbrook stakes his own claim in the rugged Wyoming Territory, he hopes to run few cattle on it while he continues to work as a cowhand. But when a Mexican sheepherder, Tony Campos, is bullied by local land baron Theodore Sutton and his hired thug, Clay is fired from his job for defending Campos.

Though Clay thinks that he’s seen the worst of things, he quickly discovers that Sutton is behind a corrupt land grab and irrigation scheme—and he means to take Clay’s homestead as part of his plan.

Halfbreed Law: A Havelock Novel

Halfbreed Law by Chuck TyrellWhen Barnabas Donovan, the captain of a band of Yankee raiders, shoots seventeen-year-old Garet Havelock, he only makes one mistake—he doesn’t kill him.

Years pass, determination burns, and Havelock, a Cherokee halfbreed, marshal of Vulture City, must now retrieve $100,000 in bullion that has been stolen. Havelock sets out to catch the thieves and recover the gold across the unforgiving Mojave Desert. But before long, he realizes Fate has served up justice, and the outlaw kingpin he’s after is none other than Donovan, the man who shot him years earlier.

Garet Havelock is older, wiser, and stronger now. He understands that Barnabas Donovan is pure evil and will stop at nothing to get what he wants—even if it means gunning down his own brother. Havelock is determined to retrieve that gold and save Donovan’s sister, Laura—though it may mean his own life. It’s past time for Donovan to face the consequences with a taste of Halfbreed Law
