Money to burn…

Bounty hunter Bladen Cole rode into Santa Fe with the bodies of two wanted outlaws who decided to try their luck against his Colt .45. But he’s riding out with an even more profitable venture—the capture of four robbers who stole a payroll from the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railway.

Rather than let word spread about the theft, the railroad men need someone who can get the job done quickly and quietly. This is a job for a bounty hunter.

Following a trail of bodies, Cole soon realizes that the payroll robbery is only the beginning of something much bigger and bloodier on the horizon…

The Fire of Greed

Written by: Bill Yenne


Praise for Bladen Cole: Bounty Hunter:

“The portrait Yenne draws of early Montana rings very true. So do the characters who populate it–and their relations with the Indians and with one another. The plot has more twists and turns than the Missouri River. On the surface, Bladen Cole is a laconic Joe Friday who just wants to get the job done and collect his money. But beneath Cole’s leather hide beats a big heart that values justice, which is what makes him so likeable and fascinating. Yenne plays the women very well, too–the Indian lass and the banker’s daughter. They are strong characters, who seem very real in the context of their worlds. Yenne effectively evokes the loneliness and wide open spaces of the Big Sky Country.”–Michael Castleman, author of the Ed Rosenberg mystery series
