Kicked Out With A Cold Shovel: A Classic Western Series (Bloody Joe Mannion Book #6)
Mean Pete Brandvold brings back hardened lawman Marshal Bloody Joe Mannion for another kick-you-in-the-face tale full of hot lead and cold corpses!
Town Marshal “Bloody” Joe Mannion and his close friend, Wells Fargo detective Flint Henry, are on the trail of some of the most vicious killers Mannion has ever faced. Flint is killed so it’s up to Bloody Joe to single-handedly retrieve the loot the gang stole from a train. He manages to take down the gang and secure the loot only to find himself facing yet another band of vicious killers who want to lay their own grubby hands on the cash. Bloody Joe, however, has other ideas…and this ain’t his first rodeo.
He manages to hold onto the loot but while fleeing the gang, he’s wounded and falls into a ravine. He’s ushered to safety by a sister and brother pair of orphans. When the gang tracks Joe to the ranch of Sam and Ilsa McDowell, he finds himself on the run again, with both McDowells as well as the loot. The only thing harder than trying to hold onto the loot is getting Sam and Ilsa to safety—especially when a neighboring rancher sets his lusty sights on the girl. The crooked rancher and his own gang of toughnuts powder Mannion’s and the children’s trail with their own helping of hot lead.
