We are please to announce that our old friend Clay More (actually, Keith’s western pen-name) is writing a series of western short stories that are coming out one a month as short ebooks in Kindle and Nook, published by High Noon Press. Each adventure is a separate story, but they link up into a whole tale, like the Saturday afternoon matinees of old.
Doctor Marcus Quigley, qualified dental surgeon, gambler and sometime bounty hunter has gradually been working his way west. His reasons for choosing such a lifestyle are personal and pressing, as well as expedient, for there is someone he means to track down and hold to account for a murder committed some years previously.
In DEAD IN THE SADDLE Doc Marcus Quigley has set up a temporary consulting room in Hagsville. He has just pulled the tooth of one of the town’s loafers when Jordan Parker, the town banker falls dead from his horse in the middle of the main street. When Sheriff Dan Morgan asks him to examine the body Marcus discovers some strange things that lead to a trail of death and duplicity and which put him right into the jaws of danger.
In GUILTY AS SINNED Doc Marcus Quigley treats a female patient in the town of Sage Fork and learns that she has good reason to want revenge upon the person who beat her and loosened a tooth. When a murder is committed soon afterwards he is convinced that a miscarriage of justice is about to take place and he must move fast to uncover the murderer before someone else is killed. By taking a hand he places himself in extreme danger.
In this second adventure from his casebook, we learn more about Marcus Quigley and his long quest to bring a cold-blooded killer to justice.
The third adventure THE COVERED TRAIL is already written and in the can!
