Showdown With Fear
Today’s Free Kindle eBook: Showdown With Fear
When the McVie boys are on the prowl, no one is safe …
Dan Mullen, the former sheriff of Red Rocks, New Mexico, knows that better than anyone.
Dan thought he had it all – the respect of the people he watched over, the love of a good woman, and his hardworking son, Pete.
But when a fever takes Mary from him, and Jimmy McVie comes to town, Sheriff Mullen knows he had to be stopped.
When Jimmy’s brother John seeks revenge for his little brother’s death, Dan fancies his chances in a showdown.
But life doesn’t always work out the way you plan, and when some innocent bystanders die, Dan is blamed.
His reputation in tatters, he finds solace at the bottom of a bottle, sending Pete away to learn an honest trade, as he pines for what once was.
Once the town’s revered sheriff, he quickly ends up becoming the town drunk.
Is it too late for him to redeem himself?
As Dan battles his demons, word comes to town that the McVie brothers are on the loose once again.
And this time no one is safe, especially Pete.
So when the new sheriff of Red Rocks puts together a posse, Dan joins up, newly sober and with a lot to prove.
Filled with shoot outs, kidnappings and desert heat, Showdown with Fear is a tale of redemption, second chances, gun slinging and love.
