Holt County, Nebraska, 1881. Deputy sheriff Whit Branham sets out by himself to bring in a scurvy killer, but will surprise alone be an advantage? Armed with his trusty Stevens 10-gauge and some hard won experience, even Branham isn’t above giving the devil his due. This 3,000 word short story introduces Branham and is followed by a 2,000 word sneak peek at the deputy’s upcoming adventure, HOLT COUNTY LAW, a brand new novella slated for December.
Growing up in Knox County, Nebraska, which borders Holt County to the west, I have lots of fond memories of the land, the people, and the endless rugged landscape of the Elkhorn and Niobrara river valleys. I hope you’ll drop past Amazon and pick up a copy, and if you do, please let me know what you think with a comment here on the blog or quick review there.
BRANHAM’S DUE is available here for 99 cents.
