In the grinding death mill of the trenches of Petersburg, Virginia, in the closing days of the Civil War, a Union sharpshooter - a "long-shooter" named Ballou - emerges as the best sniper in a war where wholesale slaughter became the norm. Ballou perfected the art of the judicious killer. His ability with his cherished Stephens target rifle is legendary, making a nearly miraculous shot that no one else - North or South - could accomplish. After the war, he disappears...

Samuel Roark is a small-time rancher and part-time lawyer. One personal tragedy after another leaves Samuel gripped by periodic bouts of depression. When a hidden marksman of uncommon skill murders his son, the death leaves Samuel on the brink of total madness.

Roark's wife Sarah, a woman of strength, grace and startling beauty is now both emotionally and physically exhausted by the tragic circumstances that have beset her family. After discovering her husband's quest for revenge, she does everything in her power to prevent what she fears will ultimately destroy him.

Matthew Shaw is a known manhunter and soldier of fortune that people call on when they're willing to pay someone else to deal with obstacles in their lives. When required, Shaw reluctantly uses his considerable marksmanship to achieve those ends. Now Shaw finds himself caught between a job he truly believes in, and a very good reason to walk away when he realizes he's falling in love with Sarah, the wife of the man who hired him.

    The Long Shooters - Can't go wrong with this one

    A great read > a Western + Manhunt + a Mystery + a little Romance (aw shucks)

    +bonus > if you like Robert Parker’s “Spenser” novels you will enjoy the protagonist’s personal code of conduct.

    Well written and yet this is the only novel by the author - you've got to be kidding me!

    Don’t shy away from this one - you won’t be sorry.
