Hard Law

To move forward he must go back…

When Federal Marshal Jay Elder is called to the town of Stove Pipe to get to the bottom of a number of robberies seizing hold of the County, he has no idea what awaits him.

However, unlike any of Elder’s other assignments, Stove Pipe is the town he grew up in and was cruelly driven out of twenty years earlier.

His memories of the place are bitter and he arrives with the assumption that little will have changed, but he soon finds out that he couldn’t be more wrong.

It soon becomes clear that not everyone is happy to see him back in town and Elder suddenly sees old friends in a new and surprising light.

With more enemies than allies and no one afraid to reach for their gun, does Elder have any hope of solving the spat of robberies and saving Stove Pipe from complete disrepair?

Only one thing’s certain – after an absence of twenty years, the most difficult task lying before him will be facing up to his past…

With tension mounting from the very first page, Hard Law is an action-packed western adventure with an ending that won’t disappoint.
