The Sheriff and the Widow

A novel by

As dangerous as unstable dynamite . . . that was Sheriff Ross Kemp's assessment of Jessica Blackwood. She was darkly beautiful, and she was married to the richest rancher around. Mysterious notes, a bizarre accusation and the bushwhack murder of her madly jealous husband shoved Kemp into the biggest trouble of his life.Tried and convicted on a trumped-up charge, Kemp was sentenced to ten years of living hell in the state pen.His only hope was Jessica's lovely stepdaughter, Ellen, but as Ellen began to uncover the truth she fell into deadly danger from Orson Rymer, gambler and blackmailer, and Snake McClay, evil-minded gunslick. It looked as if justice would never be done!
David Cranmer, aka author Edward A. Grainger and editor of Beat To A Pulp, writes: "There's nothing about this I didn't enjoy ... I have two O'Keefe novels on the way and this has whetted my appetite for them.... I'm loving this western. I was travelling today and The Sheriff and the Widow was my book for the trip."
James Reasoner, author of many a Longarm and Trailsman book, writes: "If reprinting Chap O'Keefe's book goes over well (and I can't see how it wouldn't!), maybe you can do some more classic Black Horse Westerns in the future."
