Desert Run

(The seventh book in the Bodie the Stalker series)
A Novella by

Bodie was trailing three men who'd escaped from Yuma Pen - three men he'd helped to put there in the first place. But when they shot his horse out from under him, he found himself set afoot in the searing desert.
If he was to turn the tables on the men now hunting him, he needs to reach the life-saving waters at Pinto Wells. But just when he figured he's in the clear, he found another shock awaiting him.
A face from his past. An equally dedicated killer - thought to be dead - who's tracked Bodie down and plans to exact his own vengeance.
Bodie figured he was safe after dealing with the escapees. But now he faces another challenge from the man called Silverbuck.
This time it's a struggle to the death, with no quarter and only one will walk away from the desert run...


Neil Hunter is a pseudonym of the prolific Lancashire-born writer Michael R. Linaker. As Neil Hunter, Mike wrote two classic western series, BODIE THE STALKER and JASON BRAND. Under the name Richard Wyler he produced four stand-alone westerns, INCIDENT AT BUTLER'S STATION, THE SAVAGE JOURNEY, BRIGHAM'S WAY and TRAVIS. Another western, HIGH KILL, was later published in the SUNDANCE series as BOUNTY KILLER. His western output can also be found under the names 'Dan Stewart', 'John C. Danner' and 'Frederick H. Christian', the latter name employed when he ghost-wrote an additional five titles in Frederick Nolan's popular FRANK ANGEL series. Mike has written three 'nasty' horror novels under his own name, but since the late 1980s has become best-known as one of the most popular contributors to Gold Eagle's MACK BOLAN series, chronicling the adventures of PHOENIX FORCE, THE EXECUTIONER and STONY MAN, as well as his own action-adventure series, CADE.
