Once again I have been proven correct that exercise is bad for you. Yesterday, after the baby bassets had finished school, we all went for a nice bike ride to stretch our legs and get our blood pumping. I thought it was maybe the heat or the ash from all the fires that was making the ride a bit of a drag. I just wasn’t feeling it, so we cut the ride short. I sat on the couch for a bit to rest, and when I tried to get up I realized I couldn’t use my left leg. The upper portion of my leg was killing me! Maybe my body was telling me to relax and binge watch Downton Abby. Maybe my body is telling me it hates me and wants to see how many different ways it can torture me. I don’t take it personally. I know my body has a grudge against me for all the stuff I have put it through over the years. Today I think I will take it easy. No projects, no marathons. I will make time for a peaceful adventure in a book.

FREE for a limited time

Note : The books in the Jason Green series are stand alone novels and can be read in any order.

The azure waters of a serene tropical paradise hide a sinister and murderous criminal undercurrent. A dark secret exposed leads to appalling bloodshed and chaos. How did it all go so dreadfully wrong?

Ex soldier Jason Green was depressed and had been drinking far too much. The endless London winter had been bitterly cold. The freelance insurance fraud work was mundane, but this changes early on a frozen February morning.

The wealthy client was desperate.

Just how was his high flying young son making so much money?

It sounded like a dream assignment. An escape from the city and a bit of travel.

And for a while it was.

But on an idyllic island utopia, someone is watching, and a dangerous criminal cartel operates quietly in the shadows.

As Green digs deeper he uncovers the truth, but a series of unfortunate events occur. Events far beyond his control. Events that result in unspeakable violence and horror.

The cartel must be stopped, but who will be the next to die?

The action builds to a frenzy in this gripping 1st in series page turner, and the profoundly shocking finale will stay in your mind for a long time.

A very, very long time…

Marshal of Blazing Gulch
by Denis Hughes
4.2 Stars (22 Reviews)
Genre: Westerns | Thrillers

FREE for a limited time

Keep your friends close, and your enemies closer…

Karl Oetzman and Lou Chanley used to be buddies.

But Oetzman blames Chanley for the death of his brother and since then, they have been battling for control of Blazing Gulch.

Now, the feud is threatening to turn into all out war, with neither of the two hombres, or the strong-minded women by their side, are willing to back down.

When Texan Rusty McCade arrives in town he is offered work by both sides.

But McCade has no interest in their feud and, despite his expert gun-wielding skills, he only wants peace for Blazing Gulch.

He may be old and approaching retirement, but the town Marshal is determined to minimise bloodshed and keep the two gangs from all out warfare.

But when he falls victim to an attack by a group of merciless boarder bandits, Tindall personally requests that McCade takes over his badge.

Despite his doubts, the townspeople vote in favour of the Texan becoming their new Marshal and so he must find a way to stop the fighting once and for all.

But when McCade’s old nemesis is hired by Oetzman, the risk of death becomes even greater, and McCade’s own life is suddenly in grave danger.

Will the Texan be able to make the two old ranchers see sense?

Or will Blazing Gulch be ripped apart by the senseless feuding?

Only McCade, the new Marshal of Blazing Gulch, can save the town from itself.

With action and adventure from the start, Marshal of the Blazing Gulch is a classic western, reminiscent of Zane Grey and Louis L’Amour.
