Gun for Hire

(1996)
(The first book in the Brand series)
A novel by

 
 
Ex-army scout Jason Brand was lured by a wad of banknotes to find the kidnapped daughter of Morgan Dorsey, one of the legendary names in New Mexico. Katherine had vanished from home, leaving no tracks, and there was no indication as to who had been involved - just a ransom note demanding half a million dollars for her release. Brand started out by asking questions in town, and then followed a strong hunch - but many bullets were to fly before he found Katherine.

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.
