Hollywood comes to the High Lonesome to make a Western, but not all the showdowns and bodies that fall are make-believe.
Nick Drake confronts a double-feature of murder and mysticism when Sheriff Pudge Warbler enlists him to catch a killer among the movie stars and film crew turning Harney County into a celluloid version of the Old West. At the same time, he runs afoul of a sinister goldmining company after finding an old prospector shot in the back. The stakes couldn’t be higher when the killers threaten Nick, his wife and daughter, and it’s a fight to the finish or wind up buried like lost treasure.
Read as a standalone or as part of the series.
Award-winning author Dwight Holing draws on his deeply rooted connection to the American West and understanding of the natural world to create a masterful story. With memorable characters and prose that crackles like the unforgiving setting, the suspense builds and drives The Forgotten Feet to a climax as powerful as a force of nature.
