Where will the evidence lead... ?

For Sheriff Brad Wood of Double Peak, Arizona, problems start the same day that Sylvia Danning arrives in town looking for work.

Wanting to help, Brad secures her a position as a singer in the local Saloon, where she quickly proves a hit, catching the eye of the recently arrived Hap Hazard.

But Hazard has troubles of his own, with a gang of outlaws hot on his trail and out for his blood.

Meanwhile, ranch owners are being murdered and their backs viciously burned off, as if to hide something.

Are the strangers in town and the murders connected?

And more importantly, what secret is hidden on the backs of the dead?

Can Brad and his trusted manservant-turned-mayor Merridrew solve the case before more bodies pile up?

Merridrew Follows The Trail is a classic murder mystery set in the wild west that will grip readers from the first page until the final, unexpected conclusion.
