U.S. Marshall Bess Sugarland is still recovering from a gunshot wound, and Joe Noose is tasked with taking the infamous Bonnie Kate Vance to Victor, Idaho and her date with the gallows.
Not everyone wants Joe to succeed. A sheriff from Arizona wants Bess (pretty much alive or dead) and if Joe Noose stands in the way, it's his mistake. Also on their trail is a former lover of Bonnie Kate. A dangerous trip over Talon Pass puts Joe and Bonnie Kate in danger over and over again.
From the first book, the reader knows Joe Noose is larger than life and so are his adventures. Action-packed.
The prologue of Branded gives some important background into Joe Noose, and a bitter lesson that Joe learned at thirteen.
U.S. Marshall Emmett Ford appears in Bess Sugarland's office in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. He's tracking a serial killer who brands his victims, sometimes entire families.
Joe Noose, recognizing the brand and the killer, joins Bess and Emmett Ford in tracking down the deranged killer through a Wyoming winter.
Another fast-paced adventure with plenty of action. Read in November. Review scheduled for March 20, 2021.
Western/Thriller. 2021. Print length: 281 pages.
