“About Western Apprehension:
In the southwest edge of the Great Plains in 1886, veteran US Marshal, Ben Corrigan, is on his way to the town of Iron Horse Junction to escort a jailed murderer, Frank Jameson, to Santa Fe in the territory of New Mexico for trial. Frank gun downed the town’s deputy sheriff while the deputy attempted to arrest him for killing a cattle buyer in a saloon brawl. For Ben, it should be a routine assignment that he has done many times before. But this time it comes while he is seriously considering retirement from a long, illustrious career that he enjoys as a lawman. His love interest, the widow Rachel Langford wants him to leave his dangerous roving profession and settle down with her. She asks him to consider their future while he gets ready to head to Iron Horse Junction. This leaves Ben in a quandary because there are conflicts that make the decision difficult. He’s not ready to retire, and there are other personal problems with the marital union with Rachel that he must resolve.
Unfortunately, a new untimely dynamic comes into play when Frank Jameson’s two friends break him out jail before Ben arrives. Ben, accompanied by a couple of new young marshals, is tasked with apprehending Frank and his gang. A life-threatening, violent confrontation ensues as the desperados resist capture. During the hot pursuit, Ben finally makes his life-changing decision. However, he must survive his present ordeal to fulfill this promise.

I’ve always enjoyed historical fiction. Previously, I published,
Truncate, a suspense novel set in late Victorian London. My
present novel also occurs in the same period, but its location
is thousands of miles away in the rugged American Southwest,
a world apart from the metropolitan atmosphere of Victorian
London. However. for me, it holds the same strong allure. The
romantic and sturdy icon of the people in the American West
coping with the later stages of the American frontier in the
19th century is instilled in American culture. I’ve always been
a fan of this American epoch. lt’s from this inspiration that I
spun a tale that involves the romance, conflicts, and the human
touch of this genre.
