BENEDICT & BRAZOS
# 2 Badge For Brazos
By E. Jefferson Clay
Bold Venture Press
Yank Duke Benedict
and Reb Hank Brazos need a stake to continue their hunt for outlaw Bo Rangle
who knows the whereabouts of $200,000 dollars stolen at the end of the Civil
War. To that end they come to the small town of Harmony run by a loud-mouthed, over-sized
Madam named Dutch Amy. She and her partners have discovered that the silver
mine in the nearby hills actually has new, richer veins of the ore as yet
untapped. Whereas the local mining camp of Whipple Creek believes the mine to
have been played.
Fearing the miners
will learn of the undug riches, she and her men begin a campaign of terror in
hopes of forcing them to abandon the territory. This in turn creates several
gun battles between the cowboys and miners that threaten the entire township.
Upon seeing Brazos fighting skills, Dutch Amy
appoints him Sheriff thinking him a stupid yokel she can easily manipulate.
Alas, much to her chagrin, Brazos takes the
job seriously and soon, along with Benedict’s assistance, he begins to
investigate the recent rash of killings.
All of which leads to a violent gun-blasting confrontation between the two saddle partners versus Dutch Amy’s small army of hired gun. Once again Jefferson Clay demonstrates his flair for writing fast paced, colorful western action that moves across the pages like a runaway stampede of Texas Longhorns. This is Wild West at its Wildest!! Not to be missed.
