Point of Contact

(The seventh book in the Rockabye County series)
A novel by

"Even with a psycho there's a point of contact in the killings," Sheriff Jack Tragg told Deputies Fayde and Counter as they went to investigate the third apparently unconnected murder in which the same gun had been used. "Find it and at least you'll have his motive."
Yet there seemed no point of contact between the victims - and old moonshiner, a visiting theatrical producer and the bust-out man of a crooked floating crap game. So the depuities searched and at last found the point of contact. But finding it gave them the name of another possible victim ... Woman Deputy Alice Fayde herself!

J.T. Edson was a former British Army dog-handler who wrote more than 130 Western novels, accounting for some 27 million sales in paperback. Edson's works - produced on a word processor in an Edwardian semi at Melton Mowbray - contain clear, crisp action in the traditions of B-movies and Western television series. What they lack in psychological depth is made up for by at least twelve good fights per volume. Each portrays a vivid, idealized "West That Never Was", at a pace that rarely slackens.
