The Bounty Man

Everything’s got a price…

As a hardened bounty hunter, all Tom M’Grea wants is the $500 for the heads of his catches – the simple Dutch Geroge and the cunning King Rattler.

But while escorting his prisoners through the still wild frontier, they accidently run into a fleeing tribe of Apaches.

What could make the hardened and merciless Apaches fear for their own lives?

It seems the even more dreaded Comanche tribe is on the warpath.

And their intended targets? The white settlers in the valley below and the town of Dead End.

Dead End is aptly named. At least, it was for poor old Prospector Silver Sam Hayday.

Shot down by the Jed ‘Loco’ Louen, his attempts at getting the law into Dead End came down with him.

His granddaughter, Bonnie Hayday, wants to avenge him but with Loco Louen elected Sheriff by the greedy Laramie brothers and their mob, there’s nothing she can do.

Loco didn’t earn his nickname for nothing, after all.

So when a mysterious stranger comes to Dead Town, speaking of an incoming army of Indians, Louen and the rest of the townsfolk don’t give him a second thought.

And when the stranger admits to being a bounty hunter, Louen decides to have himself some fun.

But M’Grea guessed his play and knocked him out senseless.

Bonnie sees her chance. If she can help M’Grea escape from the Laramie mob, maybe he’ll help her to avenge her poor grandfather?

And just maybe under that gruff and hardened exterior, M’Grea might be the no-nonsense Sheriff that Dead End needs.

If, of course, the town isn’t wiped out by the Comanches in the meantime…

In a twist on the classic Cowboys and Indians western, The Bounty Man is a thrilling tale of loyalty and love in a lawless land.
