Colorado Crossfire

A novel by

It was a vicious robbery, if there ever was one. A bunch of scummy gunsels had ambushed a Northwest and Canadian Railroad car, and left a pile of bodies in their wake. Detective Jim Bigelow figured it had to be Milo Paxton's Gang; no other pack of pistoleros was so downright mean - or so dang slippery-footed. The Pinkerton man needed a pair of crack frontiersmen to capture the outlaws - or kill 'em - and bring back the loot. So he hired two hell-raisin' whippersnappers names of Lefty McNally and the Kiowa Kid ...
Lefty was a U.S. cavalryman's son and the Kid was half-injun, yet they were closer than natural brothers. Together, they'd set out to find adventure. But hunting down twelve of the meanest men in the west not only put Lefty and the Kid on the deadly trail of hidden treasure, but plunged them into a six-gun war that'd leave gunsmoke and splattered blood on every one-horse town and mining camp from Kansas clear to Colorado!


Patrick E. Andrews was born in Oklahoma in 1936 into a family of pioneers who participated in its growth from the Indian Territory and Oklahoma Territory to statehood. His father's family were homesteaders and his mother's cattle ranchers. Consequently, he is among the last generation of American writers who had contacts with those people from the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Patrick's wife Julie says he both speaks and writes with an Oklahoma accent. He is an ex-paratrooper, having served in the 82nd Airborne Division in the active army and the 12th Special Forces Group in the army reserves. Patrick began his writing career after leaving the army. He and his better half presently reside in southern California. He has a son Bill, who is an ex-paratrooper and a probation officer, and two grandchildren.
Over the next few months/years, we will be issuing Patrick's entire western output, including cavalry stories, stories set in Texas (TEXAS TRAILS), stories set in Oklahoma (INDIAN TERRITORY) and more!
Patrick's stand-alone westerns will also appear in our new series of PICCADILLY PUBLISHING WESTERNS, in which we hope to recreate the feel of the classic Gold Medal paperbacks, and bring you the very best in western entertainment!
