About the Book

A mysterious stranger happens upon the town of Burlton, Arkansas and is greeted with hostility by local law enforcement, because the community has shut its borders to outsiders, for public safety.

The man is apprehended and embodies some strange contradictions. He dresses as a British aristocrat, talks with a southern accent, exhibits keen gun skills, and outsmarts the local powers-that-be at every turn. He also lives by a code: the code of a gentleman, which he enjoys vehemently teaching to the local townsfolk whenever the need arises.

As the man familiarizes himself with the town, he sees corruption and exploitation in every facet of life there. He sees a stranglehold on the townsfolk coming down from those in power, keeping those below them in place. The mayor, the sheriff, the deputies, the priest, the landlord, the doctor, and the banker all belong to the same family that has insinuated themselves into positions of power and taken control.

Tensions reach a boiling point as the dapper stranger challenges the control of the Behen clan, resulting in his apprehension until the stranger reveals himself to be a U.S. Marshall who didn’t happen on the town by chance. In reality, the peculiar stranger has a bloody connection to the past of the corrupt clan ruling the town.

In spite of his dandy demeanor, the well-groomed stranger may have no other option but to dispense justice to the lecherous leaders of Burlton from the barrel of a six-shooter.

About the Author

Woohoo! Welcome! I know you know the drill, you get a free ebook and agree to join my mailing list. Well, my mailing list is different. I do a weekly comic strip called One-Pager. My newsletter is a new comic strip e-mailed directly to your inbox, weekly! It'll also come with some sneak peeks into graphic novels and books in progress! An extra, free bonus!

I love to tell stories that make you think. I might tell you an eerie horror story that gives you chills, leaving you spending a sleepless night staring at your closet. I might tell you a satire that makes you laugh until you cry. I might tell you a crime story, so suspenseful that it leaves you breathless, wondering if the detective will apprehend the killer before they strike again. I might tell you an erotica that will leave you breathless for…other reasons… But above all, I want to tell you a story that makes you think: about life, love society…about real life issues that make you challenge your own beliefs, all through the safe and comfortable filter of fiction.
