For Tito Pacheco, a few hands of poker seems a good way to pass the time—until he is forced to kill one man to save another. Then he finds the body on the trail, and has a second gunfight in a town called Ivory Flats. About the time things seem as if they can’t get any worse, Tito is hitched up to a team of kids and running for the sanctuary of Broken Spoke.
Baxter Puggot loved his kid brother. He vowed to see his brother’s killer dead, by any means necessary, and he had a half-dozen men who could get the job done. Tito could run far and dig himself a deep hole, but Baxter swore he would root him out and see him dead.
Luke Mallory and the other men in Broken Spoke intend to stand by Tito, but it could mean a war against up to a dozen hardened bounty hunters. War meant bullets flying and some being hurt or killed and none of the people in the valley wanted that. Regardless, Luke knew they would stand by Tito. If Baxter Puggot’s gang came looking for a fight, he figured they would meet their Destiny at Broken Spoke!
About the Author
Terrell L. Bowers sometimes thinks he was born with boots and spurs. His father was his inspiration. He provided Terrell with his own horse and cows to ride and rope. Whether on small acre lots or fair-sized farms, he always had a horse and rope handy. Terrell shared his father's enthusiasm for Westerns and grew up rooting for Bob Steele, Johnny Mack Brown, Roy Rogers, and John Wayne. Western blood is in his veins, and he loves to create a new story, new characters, and then let his imagination run wild. "Fortunately," Terrell writes, "I have a beautiful, loving wife and two angelic girls, who understand and accept my endless hours at a typewriter. My principal desire is that somewhere there are Western lovers who find my stories entertaining."
