Wild Night

(The first book in the Lucas Hallam Mystery series)
A novel by

Shamus Awards Best Paperback original
In the 1920's Lucas Hallam was something of a legend: a Texas Ranger turned Pinkerton agent turned Hollywood P.I. And when the occasion arose, Hallam mounted up again and rode with Tom Mix, William S. Hart, and the other famous movie cowboys of the silent era. He didn't think of his past often, and it was the furthest thing from his mind when he went into Chuckwalla, California, hoping to turn the ghost town into a movie set . . . even when the two men started shooting at him. So he dealt with them and got on with business.

This time, business was protecting Elton Forbes, founder of the Holiness Temple of Faith. Forbes denied the meeting had anything to do with blackmail. Later, he denied that he had killed the men lying on the floor while he stood over them with a gun in his hand. Lucas Hallam was the only one who believed Forbes. The only question in his mind was whether he'd survive long enough to find the real killer.
