by Dan Baldwin
Dan Baldwin’s new Western, TRAPP CANYON, is now up on Amazon and Smashwords. Can a man find redemption through murder? Vengeance drives Grat O’brien to find the wagon driver who left him to die in the desert flats of southern Arizona Territory. He attacks the driver’s freighting company one station at a time-random acts of violence that make him a man wanted by the law and hunted by hired killers. O’brien forces himself to become educated and to learn thinking and planning so he can mix with the merchant class of Tombstone to learn the name of the man he seeks. He makes enemies and allies and finds a passion for the elegant daughter of the freight line company owner- a woman with her own dark and dangerous secrets. As the violence escalates, so does his awareness of who he is, what he has done, and- significantly-who he can become. When he at last confronts the driver, the brute O’brien faces the aware O’brien. Will he torture and kill or will he forgive and forget? Or can he devise a third alternative? The answer to what happens next is found in a place called Trapp Canyon.
