Lighthorse Creek

(1988)
A novel by

 
 
When Martin Blazer established his newspaper in Lighthorse Creek, he believed the pen was mightier than the sword. But Culhane Riley and his gang of cutthroats didn't take kindly to Blazer's editorials about law and order. The young editor was horsewhipped, his printing office wrecked, and it looked like Riley's bunch would continue running things their way.
Until Tom Deacon came to town ...
Deacon was pure hell with a gun, but he used it sparingly and only in what he considered a good cause. And he hadn't found a better cause than Martin Blazer's crusade for justice. The two banded together to take on the outlaw gang, and once the battle started there was no stopping the slaughter. Good men had to win, or else the devil would dance over their corpses on the streets of ... Lighthorse Creek.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

"My mother's family the Terrals and Kennedys (Scot Presbyterians) fought for the south in the Civil War and went to the Indian and Oklahoma Territories to escape the oppression of Northern "reconstruction" of the southern states. They became cattle ranchers. The town of Terral, Oklahoma is named after my great-grandfather. My father's family were farmers who served in the Union Army in a Pennsylvania regiment. They moved into the area to get free land as per the homestead act."

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.
