Winters’ War
Being an Account from the Lost Papers of The Winters Family Ranch

For eight years the Winters family has worked hard to live down the nightmare of a bloody range war. Theirs is now a promising ranch on hard-won land in Wyoming’s rugged Rockies. But on the eve of the season’s first snowstorm a stranger slips in, ripping open old wounds, and devolving their lives into a brutal struggle for survival. Niall Winters returns from selling his fall herd to find his ranch a burned ruin, his Uncle Drift dead, his wife missing, and the blizzard covering any clues with a whole lot of snow. He heads into the raging maw of the storm determined to confront this demon from his past and salvage the remains of their shattered lives–or die trying. But he has no idea of the horrors that await him.

Editorial Reviews

Larry D. Sweazy
This novel is pure Mayo: Well-written, gritty, and peppered with enough fierce and spunky characters to populate two novels.
The Tainted Archive
Winter’s War ... is a superb western adventure that could serve as a textbook of how it’s done.
Raymond Foster
Well drawn characters move through an icy snowstorm to one of the best finales that I have ever read. A tense Western written with a fine pace, descriptive and with a good sense of time … like watching a film—I could see it all and feel it. It’s one of those books that gets you so involved with the characters that you don’t want it to end—I’d love to find out what happened next. It’s just the right way to end a book.

Mayo is a breezy yarn-spinner, the kind you'd like to sit around a pot-bellied stove with on a cold night.
Laurie Lee Powers
Fantastic. The characters are so vivid, and I find their actions totally believable but at the same time, refreshing and spellbinding. I laughed out loud...
