As linked to here yesterday, The Lawyer: Six Guns at Sundown by Eric Beetner is the latest one in this awesome Western series. For today only it is also available for free. Amazon synopsis:
"Seething hatred spurs The Lawyer forward, with a burning vengeance for
his family slaughtered by seven hardened gunslingers. He’s tracking them
down, one by one, until every killer is in the ground. His next target,
Big Jim Kimbrough, left tracks to the small town of Sundown, Arkansas,
where The Lawyer learns his prey has already moved on.
But he can’t leave after he witnesses a black man named Josiah being
dragged behind a horse, the man’s only crime is allegedly taking food
from a white man’s table, and is about to be lynched. The Lawyer takes
up arms to save Josiah, realizing Kimbrough is slipping from his grasp
with every minute he spends in Sundown. None of that will matter,
though, if The Lawyer doesn’t survive the next twelve hours in the wake
of a racially charged mob, fueled by the town’s tyrant and cheap liquor.
Eric Beetner (The Year I Died Seven Times) is no stranger to writing
terse, action-packed storylines. He shifts his gifted prose from modern
crime tales to the gritty world of the Old West without missing a beat.
SIX GUNS AT SUNDOWN is a riveting Western that continually tightens its
grip to the last provocative page."
