Tin Man

(Book 13 in the Jess Williams Western series)
A novel by

Tin Man is the thirteenth in the series of Jess Williams westerns. In Tin Man, Jess rides into the colorful little town of Paradise, Kansas, looking for a wanted man. When he arrives, he finds trouble in the form of Sarah Purtell's hired guns. He helps a small boy, Toby Lambert, by helping his pa, Heath Lambert, who was receiving a beating from three of Sarah Purtell's men.

The mayor of the town tries to hire Jess as the sheriff in town after that, but Jess wants no part of being a lawman, even though he still carries a United States Marshal's badge in his shirt pocket. Jess rides back out of the town of Paradise and returns later to find more trouble brewing in Paradise. Eventually, little Toby Lambert convinces Jess to take the job of sheriff and Jess reluctantly agrees.

Things begin to heat up between Jess and Sarah Purtell's hired guns, and then, Jess is suspiciously fired by the mayor and town council because Sarah Purtell's brother, Randall Purtell, has his own plans for the town. Jess finally leaves Paradise on the hunt for another wanted man, but when he returns, he finds Toby Lambert and his pa dead, their house burned to the ground. Then he finds Sarah Purtell out at her ranch raped and murdered by her own hired guns and when Jess returns back to Paradise with her dead body, he returns as a United States Marshal ready to bring order to the town of Paradise. Jess will bring justice to the men responsible for the deaths of Sarah Purtell and Little Toby Lambert and his pa, and when he does, he'll do it with his own brand of justice.
