The Old West comes vividly to life in two novels from Matt Braun—America’s authentic voice of the Western Frontier

THE JUDAS TREE
Fifty-six men have been killed in a Montana town, dozens of stagecoaches have been robbed, and a fanatical vigilante leader is threatening to blow everything to bits. Luke Starbuck, hired to stop the epidemic, arrives in town only to find a tough sheriff already hanging outlaws as fast as he can, a mystery swirling around a young woman's murder, and a bunch of people with blood on their hands. Now, working undercover with the help of a beautiful stage star, Starbuck must locate the Judas lurking behind every violent act.

TENBOW
Veteran lawman Jack Stillman has come to town to solve a string of murders. Each victim was a landowner in the valley, and each killing was carried out with a deadly, long-range rifle. Taking on the guise of a gambler, Stillman is quick to line up his suspects and pry open their secrets. But the death toll keeps rising…and soon, in a land of wild honeysuckle, snowy mountain peaks, and the spirits of native warriors, Stillman realizes that he's missed a motive as old as time itself—and now the killer is on his trail.

“A master storyteller.”—Elmer Kelton
