The 1870s. As opposed to the myths of popular culture, not everybody was swaggering around with six-irons strapped down and leading lives of mayhem. But there were the exceptions--every bit as evil, bloody and deadly as legends portray. And so too, was the law that handled these outlaws. In the mold of men like Bat Masterson and Wyatt Earp, M D "Shorty" Thompson is just that kind of lawman: Short on stature but tall on guts. Hand-picked by President Rutherford B. Hayes, he is one of best. And since United States Marshals of the 1870s handle desperados, this means just about everybody does seem to be using those strapped-down dragoons and wreaking havoc. For Marshal M D Thompson, its the life of a lawman. From frozen plains to burning deserts and from despicable morals to honorable hearts, the southwest is a place of extremes often hard to endure and harder still to accept. Marshal Thompson arrives too late to save the beautiful Sister Anna, who dies in his arms while asking for her priest. And yet Thompson is there to protect the monster accused of the crime. Why he couldn't have been there to save the nun and do justice to the killer is beyond Marshal Thompson's reckoning. But Thompson is the law and he can't just gun down the fierce-looking, 270 pound, 6 feet tall and change "Little Buck" Kilgore. Especially when everybody who is saying that the hombre is guilty, can't say they saw him do it. Marshal Thompson would rather face down a gang of outlaws than untangle such a mess. But if Thompson doesn't find evidence one way or the other--and find it quick--he might just be facing a gang of angry desperados that were previously ordinary folks wanting justice. Narrated in the authentically seasoned dialect of a southwestern storyteller, the Marshal Thompson series pays tribute to the thrilling and heartbreaking hardships of our nation's western history. Accurately reconstructing the sweeping landscapes of the old west, these novels document the times and historical locations largely ignored by writers who have not been there. Paul L Thompson actually has been there, and you will feel like you were there, too.
