To Hell on a Fast Horse (Hardcover) (Peter Brandvold)
about this item
Lock and load with bounty hunters Lou Prophet and the Vengeance Queen, Louisa Bonaventure, as they ride the hardest, bloodiest trails on the western frontier, on their relentless quest to bring the baddest of the western bad men—and women—to justice.
THE DEVIL’S AMBUSHLou Prophet and his sometime-sidekick, sometime-lover, Louisa Bonaventure, are lured to an old, abandoned cavalry outpost in southeast Colorado, and ambushed. Louisa is badly wounded. While the Vengeance Queen teeters on the edge of death, Prophet hunts the seven nightriders who tried to kick them both out with a cold shovel. In the meantime, he runs into a town teeming with scandalous secrets and seven devils who must pay for their sins in blood.
BRING ME THE HEAD OF CHAZ SAVIDGE!Or, The Bounty PoachersA new kind of bounty hunter is infesting the west. Bounty hunters who steal the quarry of other hunters. Bounty poachers is what Lou Prophet calls them, and it’s men of this seedy, back-shooting variety who shadow Prophet and Louisa as they try to get the notorious killer and rapist Chaz Savidge from Dakota Territory to Denver, where they intend to turn their prisoner into the Chief U.S. Marshal and collect the bounty on his head.
But maybe Prophet’s and Louisa’s most formidable foe isn’t among the countless men hunting them, after all. Maybe their most dangerous enemy is a young, grief-stricken pioneer widow whose husband and lover lie dead on her cabin floor.
