Battle Mountain: A Classic Western Series (Bloody Joe Mannion Book #8)
“Bloody” Joe Mannion is back, battling bullets and burying secrets, in Peter Brandvold’s latest action-packed western series installment.
As Bloody Joe Mannion transports the notorious prisoner Buzzard Lee through the rugged mountains of the New Mexico Territory, a chance encounter with a young woman shrouded in mystery thrusts him into a whirlwind of danger and intrigue. The woman has no recollection of her past, only vague memories of a harrowing escape through wind and rain.
When Mannion delivers Buzzard Lee to the aging, alcoholic marshal of Battle Mountain—who claims he doesn’t recognize the girl, either—he vows to embark on a quest to unravel the mystery behind the woman’s origins, certain she might unknowingly hold all the answers they’re searching for.
But as the noose tightens around Mannion’s bloody neck and bullets draw nearer, he stumbles upon a devastating secret that could spell doom not only for himself, but also for the woman and those she cares for.
Battle Mountain is a heart-pounding saga of Western intrigue, danger, and discovery that will leave you on the edge of your seat until the very last page.
