Stockwhip Sheriff

A fight to the bitter end…

Steve M’Cord is the brave, law-upholding Sheriff of Big Rock, Arizona.

But when he accidentally shoots dead his fiancée in an attempt to capture her brother, a wanted outlaw, he is banished from the town.

The tragedy changes his life forever.

He resolves to hang up his guns and never again lay his hands on a deadly weapon again.

But in the Wild West, going without your guns is as good as committing suicide.

Instead, Steve learns how to use his stockwhip, wielding it with deadly effect.

When he at last returns to Big Rock, he finds a town in the grips of terror.

A ghost-rider is causing havoc, leaving murder and destruction in his wake.

Steve believes that the ghost-rider is playing on the imaginations of the superstitious ranchers, trying to make them believe they’re being haunted by a supernatural terror.

He thinks the person behind all of this is aiming to scare away the ranchers and claim their land for himself.

Steve is convinced that someone in his midst knows the deadly secret behind it all.

But who?

Confronted with lies, deception, arson and murder, can Steve get to the bottom of the mystery and put an end to the bloodshed, for once and for all?

Stockwhip Sheriff is a gripping western mystery that you won’t be able to put down.
