An intriguing, historical novel from the heart of the Wyoming Frontier.
"When he looked up from a heap, most angry, it was to see my finger tapping atop a colt .45. My being a stranger, he might have taken me for a hard case desperado. I made no attempt to dispel such an illusion."
Young and very green-novice, cowboy detective Ben Lowery charges into the lawless frontier of Wyoming to rescue a ten-year-old Jason, grandson of miner Jack Gannett. Jason had been kidnapped by cattle baron Sars Melstrom, just to show where the real power in Wyoming lay and to "get even."
Facing indescribable odds the experienced wouldn't dare buck, Benjamin, through grit and wit, finds a way to succeed and curry the fancy of Carrie, the school teacher from Lander.
Benjamin Lowery is hard-hitting, delightful and intriguing.
