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.
