The Derringer

The Derringer

by

If seven-year-old Roy Stone had done what his Ma told him to, he’d never have known the truth of what happened at all. 
He’d never have seen the double-cross, never have witnessed the murders, never seen the killer’s blowed-apart finger. But the poor kid saw the whole rotten thing, and watched his mother die on the floor.
"I'm going to kill you," little Roy cried at the killer – but Big Jim only laughed with contempt.
But that little boy meant what he said – and what's more, he believed it.
He would grow up and kill that big man. That was all that now mattered.

An action-packed western with a hint of romance, from the pen of J.V. James – and more double-crosses than you can shake a Winchester at.
