Long Ride Home

Theo Belk is the quintessential gunfighter: rootless, ruthless, and deadly.  In the fierce and lawless Western frontier of 1874 these traits were what was needed to stay alive.  Haunted by the ghosts of the men he''s killed, there is one man he has set out to destroy...Louis Gasceaux, the man who murdered his parents while a younger Theo watched. But the trail Theo''s following is long and bloody...and Louis always seems to stay a few steps ahead.

This is how it was--from gritty buffalo and gold camps to brawling, building towns like Denver, Cheyenne, and Dodge City, populated with ambitious dreamers, deluded fools, and pragmatic women.

Read from the Book

Long Ride Home CHAPTER ONE The gusting wind blowing out of the black night whipped the tail of the horseman''s mount, almost staggering the animal with each icy blast. Theodor Belk sat hunched on the horse, his body giving slightly to the wind as he stared longingly at the small town that lay below the rocky ridge. Yellow light from the windows reflected on the cold, white drifts of snow. Another gust jerked impatiently at the man''s coat and fluttered the brim of his snow-encrusted hat. The horse blewsoftly and shifted his back to the wind and the stinging sleet. "Ho, shuh. Easy boy," Theo coaxed to the frosty ear that swung his direction. The sorrel vented a sigh as if in reply and sniffed futilely for the warm stable he knew lay below. Theo Belk was tired. He was well bundled in a worn army greatcoat. His soogan provided protection from the ever-curious wind and snow that worried the loose wraps of his clothing. Ice rimmed the bandana that pulled the brim of the battered felt hat down over his ears. "There she is boy. Down there in that house with the pretty red shutters. She married a no-account storekeeper. That''s what they told us over to Radersburg." He emphasized the last with a stream of brown tobacco juice that stained the crusted snow.
