Money to burn…

Bounty hunter Bladen Cole rode into Santa Fe with the bodies of two wanted outlaws who decided to try their luck against his Colt .45. But he’s riding out with an even more profitable venture—the capture of four robbers who stole a payroll from the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railway.

Overview

Money to burn…

Bounty hunter Bladen Cole rode into Santa Fe with the bodies of two wanted outlaws who decided to try their luck against his Colt .45. But he’s riding out with an even more profitable venture—the capture of four robbers who stole a payroll from the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railway.

Rather than let word spread about the theft, the railroad men need someone who can get the job done quickly and quietly. This is a job for a bounty hunter.

Following a trail of bodies, Cole soon realizes that the payroll robbery is only the beginning of something much bigger and bloodier on the horizon…

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Praise for Bladen Cole: Bounty Hunter:

"The portrait Yenne draws of early Montana rings very true. So do the characters who populate it—and their relations with the Indians and with one another. The plot has more twists and turns than the Missouri River. On the surface, Bladen Cole is a laconic Joe Friday who just wants to get the job done and collect his money. But beneath Cole's leather hide beats a big heart that values justice, which is what makes him so likeable and fascinating. Yenne plays the women very well, too—the Indian lass and the banker's daughter. They are strong characters, who seem very real in the context of their worlds. Yenne effectively evokes the loneliness and wide open spaces of the Big Sky Country."—Michael Castleman, author of the Ed Rosenberg mystery series

Meet the Author

Bill Yenne is the author of a half dozen novels, as well as numerous works of historical non-fiction. Among the latter are many on Western topics. The New Yorker wrote of Sitting Bull, his biography of the great Lakota leader, that it “excels as a study in leadership.” The Wall Street Journal called his Indian Wars: The Campaign for the American West “splendid” and went on to say that Mr. Yenne writes with “cinematic vividness.” His fiction work has been praised in Publishers Weekly for its attention to realism. Mr. Yenne grew up in Western Montana where his father was a back country trail guide, and the National Park Service’s trails supervisor in Glacier National Park. He graduated from the University of Montana, and has traveled extensively throughout all of the western states. His travels have also taken him along the entire Lewis and Clark Trail. He has appeared in numerous documentaries, and was recently on camera at the Little Bighorn Battlefield for a television program on Sitting Bull.
