Tahoe Gunfight: A John Pope Western (Gun For Wells Fargo Book 5) by G. Wayne Tilman
It’s 1884, and somebody just murdered the Placer County, California sheriff on the shores of Lake Tahoe. The Governor wants to know who, and he want to know now.
Former Wells Fargo detective, now Marin County Sheriff John Pope, is tasked with solving the case, and he’s stopping for no one. But a string of interrelated cases catches him off guard, and each one has to be solved in order to obtain the killer’s identity.
As a number of suspects draw on Pope, he comes to terms with the fact that this is his toughest case yet—one he’s terrified may go unsolved. The dead sheriff’s identity, his murderer, and which outlaws are involved have to be answered. But the most pressing question is—who will draw on Pope next?
Even if it takes cutting edge investigative techniques and a blazing gun to get to the truth, Pope is determined to get there. And, come hell or high water, he’s not backing down.
