Shoot-Out in Julesburg

Shoot-Out in Julesburg

(The third book in the Bear Haskell series)
A Novella by


In fact, it's written by a veteran Longarm writer...

Meet Bear Haskell, former union war hero, former Pinkerton agent, and current deputy United States marshal.

Bear's a big man--over six and a half feet tall and as broad as a barn door. He wears a necklace of bear claws taken from the grizzly that almost had him for supper. That's the kind of man bear is. He holds a grudge and he gives no quarter--to grizzly bears or men.

Bear rides for Chief Marshal Henry Dade out of Denver's First District Court. In this third adventure, Dade sends Haskell to Julesburg to catch a killer who has recently broken out of the Colorado State Penitentiary at Trinidad.

The killer is the son of the sheriff of Sedgwick County, Con Lockhart. Dade believes the son, Jamie, will head back to Julesburg to make good on his promise ten years before, after he was convicted of murdering his father's betrothed, to return to Julesburg someday and kill Con himself. Con was the lawman who rode his own son to ground in the Dinosaur Rocks and then dragged him back, wounded, to Julesburg for trial.

Haskell thinks his current assignment will be an easy one. He's ridden killers down before. But he doesn't count on this killer being particularly wily as well as determined. He also doesn't anticipate the poisonous family dynamics that has Jamie Lockhart especially enraged and determined to kill his father.

Haskell finds himself in a race against time as he tries to hunt down Jamie before Jamie can kill the sheriff. He also finds himself entangled in one shoot-out after another in the streets and saloons of the wild and wooly Julesburg, Colorado.

Entangled, as well, in the arms of more than one woman--one of whom, it seems, has stolen the big lawman's heart...
