To Ride the Savage Hills

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

Marshal Ed Pruitt had been bringing Sam Trask to justice when the coach they were riding in was wrecked. Trask escaped, murdered the driver and took one of the coach's horses.
Now Pruitt wants Bodie to bring Trask in before the wanted man can ride out of the Dakotas and cross the line into Canada.
Where Pruitt couldn't easily cross the border into Canada, Bodie has no problems. But what should be a straightforward pursuit soon turns into something far more puzzling.
Trask is a killer, many times over. Yet people are willing to cover for him. Beaten and shot, Bodie continues to risk his life to uncover what hides in the shadows. As he rides the savage hills, facing bullets and treacherous weather, Bodie is at his best, fighting the odds and proving that he's the toughest manhunter the West will ever see.


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.
