I readily agreed and wrote Bullets for a Ballot, and greatly enjoyed the experience. It was the fifth in the series.
Since then I have written a second adventure, Coffin for Cash, which became the twelfth in the series.
At present, I’m writing a third adventure, whose title will follow the alliterative format already established…
Here is the blurb for Coffin for Cash:
Cash Laramie has been in plenty of tight spots, but this – being buried alive – may be his last!
It all started innocently enough, as a favour for his boss, accompanying a rich woman in her search for her brother. The trail leads to The Bells, a strange hotel run by a brother and sister team, which just happens to be adjacent to the funeral parlour and cemetery...
His friend Miles is nearby, intent on escorting a suspected murderer to Cheyenne for trial. Yet Miles discovers that his charge might be not guilty, after all, and lingers to ask questions. And those inquiries mean upsetting some people, which leads to an ambush, and a final reckoning at the outlandish casino complex constructed by a wealthy bigoted German baron.
Throw into the mix the attractive Berenice, a schizophrenic bank manager, irate miners, Chinese workers, a boisterous slot machine salesman, and a devious lawyer and you have another explosive adventure for the Outlaw Marshal.
I’ll return to this book again, to outline the strong influences affecting its story and characters.
Coffin for Cash available as a paperback and an e-book from Amazon sites here
