Bullets at Sunset

A fight to the bitter end…

Steve Jory inherits the Broken J cattle ranch from his uncle not soon after his old job as a gun for hire comes to an abrupt end.

He rides into Bowie County to take over the ranch, hoping to leave his grim past behind him and find some sort of future for himself.

But Jory soon discovers that taking over his uncle’s path is no easy assignment.

Land grabbing greed has overwhelmed the local ranchers, and Bowie County is rife with trouble.

Jory’s arrival brings things to a head and in no time at all, he finds himself up against Ben Sharkey – an expansionist rancher who is used to getting what he wants.

But while the townsfolk lay the blame for recent troubles on Sharkey’s doorstep, Jory has suspicions about deeper undercurrents to the range war that threatens to erupt.

Jory must get to the bottom of the mess amidst a quickly growing body count and in the face of mounting mortal perils.

If Jory proves quick on the draw, he stands to find himself a sizeable homestead and a beautiful wife.

But who amongst his friends can he depend upon?

Will he end up losing everything that he holds dear?
