After the war, he disappears…  Samuel Roark is a small-time rancher and part-time lawyer. One personal tragedy after another leaves Samuel gripped by periodic bouts of depression. When a hidden marksman of uncommon skill murders his son, the death leaves Samuel on the brink of total madness.

After discovering her husband’s quest for revenge, she does everything in her power to prevent what she fears will ultimately destroy him
Matthew Shaw is a known manhunter and soldier of fortune that people call on when they’re willing to pay someone else to deal with obstacles in their lives. When required, Shaw reluctantly uses his considerable marksmanship to achieve those ends. Now Shaw finds himself caught between a job he truly believes in, and a very good reason to walk away when he realizes he’s falling in love with Sarah, the wife of the man who hired him.

Escape from the AlamoBuy Now


Remember the Alamo! The defenders fought bravely, to the last man, giving their lives for freedom and the Republic of Texas. But suppose one of those warriors survived the battle? What could he do? Where could he go? He's supposed to be dead. Escape from the Alamo is the story of young George Hanks, an ever-grinning Tennessee lad called "Possum" by Davy Crockett. No longer grinning, Possum finds himself on the battlefield at San Jacinto, wounded, confused and alone. He can't go back to Tennessee because they believe he died at the Alamo. What's become of his idol, Davy Crockett? Possum believes that Crockett must have also survived the Alamo battle, and undertakes to find him in South Texas. Possum's journey to manhood takes him through fights with Indians and bandits, arrest and trial, and enlistment in the Texas Rangers.
Winner of Writers Digest Award
Dac Crossley"s "Escape from the Alamo" is an example of western fiction at its finest. Crossley instantly snagged my attention in the first paragraph with the vivid description, providing a setting that actually became as important as the characters. The story moves at a nice pace that will keep readers riveted yet provide just enough opportunities to catch their collective breath. The chapters all ended on hooks that will prevent readers from putting down the book. The front cover is attractive and appropriate for the setting. The back cover provides a nice blurb that will intrigue prospective readers enough to make them want to open the book. The author picture is a nice touch. Writers Digest.
