Overview

Roamer: One man's quest to lose himself in the West.

First in the gritty, all-action Western series by Spur Award-nominated author Matthew P. Mayo, featuring Roamer, the loner with a face everyone fears.

Roamer is having a bad day--he is savaged by a grizzly, robbed by bandits, and attacked by wolves. So by the time he makes it to the little Rocky Mountain town of Tall Pine all he wants is a cup of coffee, a hot meal, and a soft bed. The sheriff jails him for murder instead. A seething mob marks Roamer's homely face as guilty and seeks twisted justice with his blood. Can he stop the townsfolk from destroying themselves or will they kill him first? It's a brutal race against time for Roamer as the mob rips apart its little town, leaving innocent people dead and the wrong people in charge. Welcome to Wrong Town.

Editorial Reviews

Peter Brandvold
I loved ROAMER: WRONG TOWN, and can’t wait for the next one in the series. This is fiction writing at it’s best, and some of the best writing you’ll find in the western field. If you’re a fan of well-written westerns, you won’t regret adding this one to your collection, and you’ll have a damn good time doing it.

From the first person narrative, to the clean, crisp, prose, and Roamer himself, this book promises to upend the genre–in a good way.... This novel has everything readers and fans have come to expect from Westerns, and more; heart-pounding action, gritty prose, and sentimental storytelling, all without being sappy, or offering up any episodes of navel-gazing. Mayo delivers on all accounts–and I for one, can’t wait to read the next installment in Roamer’s adventures.
Raymond Foster
WRONG TOWN left me stunned and has to be ranked in my own personal top 10 of Westerns that I have read.... The opening chapter has Roamer fighting for his life against a grizzly bear—the read has an authentic feel to it as though the writer had lived through such an ordeal.... This book reads like a movie and is gripping from start to finish.... [WRONG TOWN] is one of those books that lingers in the mind, and should be ranked up there amongst the best.

[Mayo's] westerns are steeped in authenticity and boiled in action....

Mayo is a breezy yarn-spinner, the kind you’d like to sit around a spot-bellied stove with on a cold night.
