OVERRIDE

Kinch Riley

Matt Braun

St. Martin's Paperbacks

The young drifter had a taste for life. The old gunfighter had a date with death. Their friendship led to a killing storm-- and a true legend of the frontier.

He was young and hungry for life-- a scarecrow kid alone in a lawless land. Something about the boy named Kinch Riley made hardened railroad agent Mike McCluskie take him under his wing: show him how to fight and shoot and sample the bawdy wonders of a wide-open boomtown. But Kinch got too fast with a gun just as a band of Texas outlaws rode into the Kansas railhead of Newton. And for the first time in his life, McCluskie will walk into a battle he can't win-- because a boy's future is at stake, and so is a man's soul.

Kinch Riley is Matt Braun's masterful retelling of a true Western mystery-- the Newton General Massacre of 1871-- when six men died in 90 seconds, a boy vanished into the plains, and a legend was born...

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

  • Matt Braun

  • Matt Braun is a fourth-generation Westerner, steeped in the tradition and lore of the frontier era. His books reflect a heritage rich with the truths of that bygone time. Raised among the Cherokee and Osage tribes, Braun learned their traditions and culture, and their philosophy became the foundation of his own beliefs. Like his ancestors, he has spent most of his life wandering the mountains and plains of the West. His heritage and his contribution to Western literature resulted in his appointment by the Governor of Oklahoma as a Territorial Marshal.

    Braun is the author of more than forty novels and four nonfiction works, including BLACK FOX, which was made into a CBS miniseries, and ONE LAST TOWN, which was made into a TNT movie called YOU KNOW MY NAME. Western Writers of America awarded Braun the prestigious Golden Spur Award for THE KINCAIDS. He is also the recipient of the Cowboy Spirit Award and was inducted into the Cowboy Hall of Fame in 1999.
