The Straightshooter

Floyd Westerman’s father was a legendary lawman…

Floyd is determined to live up to his name, but being a straightshooter in Bendix County isn’t easy considering the tough way of life.

Things are even more difficult for deputy sheriff Floyd by the fact that his best friend, Dave Marsden, is in jail for murder.

His loyalties are well and truly tested – stick by his long-time friend, who insists his innocence, or live by the badge and keep Marsden captive?

But Westerman knows that to be a good lawman in the Wild West, you have to be tough.

Not only is Marsden in the jail, but so is one of the infamous Tolliver gang.

When Tolliver and his men bust their outlaw out, they also release Marsden and Floyd’s troubles grow.

The gang have left a trail of destruction in their path, murdering the sheriff and leaving Westerman no choice but to fill the vacancy.

But what does this mean for his future with Pattie, the love of his life?

Floyd insists that as soon as he can, he’ll retire from law work and work on a ranch, but how long can she keep waiting around for him?

Lives are guaranteed to be lost, as Floyd hunts down the ruthless Tolliver gang, attempting to bring the outlaws in one by one.

Floyd Westerman, The Straightshooter, must stick to his principles, honour his father, and bring peace back to Bendix County.
