Reckoning at Rainrockby Wayne D. Dundee
Harriet calls upon Lone McGantry, former Indian scout and tracker, to deliver Roxanne to Rainrock, a town in the northwest corner of Nebraska near the fabled
West central Nebraska, late 1880s: Harriet Munro, a fiery woman lawyer, takes the case of beautiful young Roxanne - a desperate fugitive fleeing a trumped-up murder conviction and a hangman's noose.
Harriet calls upon Lone McGantry, former Indian scout and tracker, to deliver Roxanne to Rainrock, a town in the northwest corner of Nebraska near the fabled Toadstool Badlands, where she will face re-trial.
McGantry delivers the girl. However, town conspirators plot to divert justice yet again. Before it is over, trusts are betrayed, bullets fly, lives are lost, and McGantry rides again to Roxanne's rescue ... until, within the stark, hauntingly empty badlands, scores are settled and a bloody reckoning is finally achieved.
Wayne Dundee lives in the once-notorious old cowtown of Ogallala, on the hinge of Nebraska's panhandle. He relocated there after spending the first fifty years of his life in the state line area of northern Illinois/southern Wisconsin.
A widower, retired from a managerial position in the magnetics industry, Dundee now devotes full time to his writing.
To date, Dundee has had six novels, three novellas, and over two dozen short stories published. All of the novels and most of the short stories have featured his PI protagonist, Joe Hannibal. He also writes in the fantasy, straight crime, and Western genres. His first Western novel, Dismal River, is due out in April 2011 from Oak Tree Press.
Titles in the Hannibal series have been translated into several languages and nominated for an Edgar, an Anthony, and six Shamus Awards. Dundee is also the founder and original editor of Hardboiled Magazine.
