Editor’s Note: Back in 2014, we published an excerpt from James D. Best’s novel Jenny’s Revenge, the story of a jilted lover out for blood… literally.
A seasoned writer, James has made his foray into audio books, and as big proponents of this ever-growing method of experiencing literature, we are excited to share a few chapters from another of his installments in the Steve Dancy novels: Murder at Thumb Butte. Without further ado, here are a few snippets from Best’s scoundrels and scalawags of the old west.
