DODGE CITY
Matt Braun

The cattle trail from Texas to Kansas was long, hot and dangerous. And by the time cowboys got there, they had the money and means to make a boomtown explode—and make Dodge City a great place to be a defense attorney…as long as you weren't looking for an innocent man.

Harry Gryden believes in the kind of justice that only happens in a courtroom. In Dodge, it's his job to make sure that the accused get their fair trial. But Harry is a little too good at what he does. And with the Masterson brothers, Wyatt Earp and Doc Holiday laying down their own brand of law, being a courtroom legend is turning Harry into the rarest of Dodge City men: one who doesn't carry a gun, but is in a fight for his life…

EXCERPT

Chapter One

The courtroom was crowded. Everyone in Dodge City treated criminal trials as a form of entertainment, theater with a lively cast of actors. Today the spectators were there to see a horse thief who was legend.

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 four dozen novels and four nonfiction works, including Black Fox, which was made into a CBS miniseries. Western Writers of America awarded Braun the prestigious Spur Award for his novel The Kincaids and the 2004 Wister Award for Lifetime Achievement in Western Literature.
