Pretty Like an Ugly Girl

(The third book in the Baer Creighton series)
A novel by


Baer bleeds. Everyone bleeds.

A moonshiner with a surreal gift
A country strongman
And a talking dog


    Luke Graves turned the family butcher business into an empire by cutting fat off the ledger as well as he cut meat off the bone.

    He also learned many men sold beef, but few sold girls and boys. Demand was high—especially for the ones with brown skin—and supply, small.

    Ten years later the family business included three sons and a distribution chain that delivered kids for any purpose throughout the western United States.

    One evening, returning to Williams, Arizona from a pickup in Sierra Vista, the tire blows out. A chavo bolts the truck and runs for the plain. Cephus Graves takes him down with a deer rifle, then fires at a stray pit bull that catches his eye.

    In the woods two hundred yards away, Baer Creighton looks up from his fire. He has a nose for evil men and he’s found a clan of them. But he’s met his match in Luke Graves.

    Baer bleeds in Pretty Like an Ugly Girl.

    Everyone bleeds.
