The Bounty Hunters

Trouble is brewing in Wellhead town…

Michael ‘Tidy’ Callaghan isn’t your average bounty hunter – those no-good rattlers who are as ruthless as the bandits they chase.

No, Tidy is a stand-up fella whose job is to catch those filthy varmints so he can get just a bit of gold dust in return.

On arriving at Wellhead, Tidy’s well-trained nose picks up that there might be some trouble brewing around these parts, and decides that he may as well stick around the one-horse town a bit longer.

Soon enough, his cousin-cum-ex-partner Scully arrives on the scene, disguised as a priest and clearly up to no good.

But it’s clear that Scully doesn’t want Tidy sniffing about.

Then Tidy encounters Brett Maverick, a fake name if ever he saw one, casing the bank and alarms bells start ringing.

With the cattle market coming to down in just two days, the bank will be brimming with cash.

With the clock ticking, Tidy only has a small window to discover what Scully’s up to and investigate the true identity of Maverick before all hell breaks loose.

Just who is Brett Maverick and what is he planning?

Can Scully and Tidy forget their troubled past and join forces, or is Scully mixed up in the same business as Maverick?

Packed with gun-slinging cowboys and snake-eyed bandits, The Bounty Hunters is a thrilling western, which evokes the style of Louis L’Amour and Zane Grey.
