Sheriff Ben Stillman knows that every lawman could face sudden death. But that doesn't ease his anger over Marshal Charlie Boomhauer's brutal murder. And ol’ Charlie's shoes have already been filled by his brash, young deputy--who isn't exactly out shaking the bushes to find Charlie's killer or killers.

The new marshal is blaming the murder on a band of Gypsies who moved north--or was it south? It's becoming clear that the town of Lone Pine has something to hide--and that Stillman is outside his jurisdiction. But the lawman's code says that you take care of your own. Ben isn't going home until he's served up some justice--whether it's by the rules or not.

Once Upon a Dead Man is the seventh novel in the fast-moving, western classic Sheriff Ben Stillman Series.

Peter Brandvold puts familiar plots in his lively Westerns, but adds his own signature in a unique and endearing way. The scheming town banker and dominating rancher with their host of enforcers stacked against homesteaders and gypsies provides a familiar western theme. But Brandvold has a special knack for making his story come alive. This, his latest, paints a colorful picture of his protagonist lawman Ben Stillman. You can depend on Brandvold to etch an indelible image of the lawman in realistic (meaning very human) terms. As Stillman gets caught in a deadly battle in Lone Pine, something he didn¿t ask for but never backs away from, you see the lawman¿s limits along with his sterling character. Author Brandvold brings out parts of the real west (thunder mugs, for example) along with the very human Stillman (struggling with love and devotion to his wife Fay when faced with unexpected temptation from Nell). Through it all shines a fast-paced, well-structured, more than traditional Western that would make Louis L¿Amour proud. That¿s now become standard fare for Peter Brandvold.

Ben Stillman was on the trail of two rustlers. After closing in on the rustlers, he was surprised by a third rustler. When the gun smoke had cleared, Ben had dispensed justice. Now he has three bodies in tow and the nearest town is Lone Pine. Ben rides in Lone Pine to deposit the bodies. While in town he finds that the marshall has been murdered and no one wants to help. Not even the newly elected marshall who was the deputy before the marshall's murder. Now Ben delves in to the murder of the marshall and twelve gypsies. When all the hot lead quites flying, Ben will have his answer and the town of Lone Pine can return to normal. ONCE UPON A DEAD MAN is THE BEST in what is fastly becoming a very well crafted series by one of the best western authors of today-Peter Brandvold.
