Blog Tour - An Ill Wind

In this sequel to The Calling, Sheriff Luke Atwell and his deputies face individual and collective challenges from outlaws, gunfighters, renegade Indians, card sharps, and a thieving medicine show in a Kansas town in the 1870’s.

The personal lives of the lawmen also change, and nature takes its destructive toll on the town and its residents.

When a black neighbor’s family is attacked and the oldest son killed, the sheriff gets help from federal law enforcement, and they chase a band of marauding ex-Confederates out to undo the changes resulting from the Civil War.
