Texas Gun Ghost (A Larry and Stretch Western Book 10)
IT BEGAN ON A MERCILESS DESERT ... .. . AND ENDED IN A GHOST TOWN!
Haunted by a sharp-shooting ghost, deserted Fortuna offered no warm welcome to the Lone Star Hellions and their new allies—three desperate men and four frightened women left to die in the arid heart of the Big Amarillo.
Also in need of shelter were the infamous Cleave Elrigg and his trigger-happy cohorts—six escapees from the Pima Valley Prison, who were determined never to be recaptured.
The climax, an explosion of violence and mayhem, echoed to every corner of the ghost town, with the West’s toughest trouble-shooters well to the fore of the fray.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Few writers are ever fortunate enough to number their books in the hundreds, but legendary Australian writer Leonard F Meares was one of them. When he died in 1993, Len could lay claim to more than 700 published novels -- 746, to be precise -- the overwhelming majority of which were westerns.
Leonard Frank Meares was best known to western fans the world over as "Marshall Grover", creator of Texas trouble-shooters Larry and Stretch. He was born in Sydney, Australia, on 13 February 1921. The aspiring author bought his first typewriter in the mid-1950s with the intention of writing for radio and the cinema, but when this proved to be easier said than done, he decided to try his hand at popular fiction instead. Since a great many paperback westerns were being published locally, he set about writing one of his own. The result, Trouble Town, was published by the Cleveland Publishing Company in 1955.
His tenth yarn, Drift!, (1956), introduced his fiddle-footed knights-errant, Larry Valentine and Stretch Emerson, the characters for which he would eventually become so beloved. And nowhere was the author's quirky sense of humor more apparent than in these action-packed and always painstakingly plotted yarns.
Len never needed more than 24 hours to devise a new plot. "Irving Berlin once said that there are so many notes on a keyboard from which to create a new melody, and it's the same with writing on a treadmill basis."
At his most prolific, he could turn out around thirty books a year. These included stand-alone westerns and western series such as Bleak Creek, Rick and Hattie and Rampart County. He also wrote a number of crime novels and romances.
