When the big, savage bounty hunter, Ulysses Xavier Lodge comes to town wanting to spark one of Jane Ford’s pretty doxies at the San Juan Saloon & Hotel, Jane and two bouncers give the bear-like giant the bum’s rush. Incensed, Lodge returns to the parlor house and shoots Jane three times in the chest.
Jane and Bloody Joe had been on the outs, their marriage dissolved, but now with Jane’s life teetering on the edge, Joe realizes how much he really loves the pretty redhead and what a fool he was to let her go. Enraged and knowing he can do nothing for Jane in town—she’s in a deep coma and only time will tell—Joe takes to the vengeance trail, shadowing Lodge high into the Sawatch Range.

GET READY FOR A DOSE OF ACTION AND ADVENTURE WITH A HEAPING HELPING OF WESTERN JUSTICE!
“Bloody” Joe Mannion is a town tamer of great renown. His temper is just as famous. Known as the most uncompromising lawman on the Western frontier, he’s been the town marshal of Del Norte in the Colorado Territory for the past five years after several years bringing to heel towns in Kansas and Oklahoma back in the days of the great Texas cattle herds.
One day in Del Norte, he loses his famous temper and badly beats Whip Helton, the son of a prominent rancher. That night, the son and his outlaw pards burn Joe’s house and kidnap and rape his daughter. Joe goes on the warpath, getting crossways with the son’s father, prominent rancher Garth Helton. By getting crossways with Helton, Joe gets crossways with his town. The town’s prominent boosters want the money Helton has invested in Del Norte as well as the railroad he wants to bring there.
Now with Whip Helton behind bars, his father has issued an ultimatum to Bloody Joe and the town—either turn his son loose or he and his Spur riders will burn the town to the ground and sift the ashes. Bloody Joe finds himself between a rock and a hard place, waiting for a bullet in the back. But that’s all right. He wouldn’t have it any other way. To make sure Whip Helton hangs for kidnapping and rape, Bloody Joe will risk everything, including his life, the town, and a hail of hot lead!
In this 4th book in bestselling author Peter Brandvold’s exciting new Bloody Joe western series, the stakes are higher than ever before, and the action is hotter than hellfire!
Del Norte Town Marshal “Bloody” Joe Mannion and his junior deputy, Henry “Stringbean” McCallister, run down an especially violent as well as beguiling outlaw in the pretty form of Mathilda Calderon. The senorita is just one pretty girl, but she fights like a leg-trapped puma, leaving Mannion with an arm full of buckshot and Stringbean hurting where a man just shouldn’t be attacked, gallblastit!
Senorita Calderon is wanted not only for aiding and abetting the commission of a federal crime but to testify in a court trial against her boyfriend, the notorious border bandito and revolutionario, Diego Hidalgo, who stole three Gatling guns from the U.S. Army, wiping out a dozen soldiers in the deadly process. Hidalgo and three members of his gang were captured by the Army. The U.S. Marshal for the Southwestern District has sent three deputy U.S. marshals to retrieve the senorita from Del Norte and to escort her to Tucson. Bloody Joe believes she will not only identify Hidalgo as the leader of the gang who stole the Gatling guns but will also testify as to the guns’ whereabouts.
In this second high-action volume in Peter Brandvold’s explosive new western series, Town Marshal “Bloody” Joe Mannion plays cat and mouse with an old enemy…
Joe believes the old regulator, “Long-Shot” Hunter Drago, who did twelve years' hard time because of Mannion, has moved to the town of Del Norte in the Colorado Territory to kill him. But, nearly everyone else in town believes that he merely moved to Del Norte to take over the Three-Legged Dog Saloon and to begin a new, peaceful life for himself.
Mannion, who doesn't believe in coincidences but does know the nature of “Long Shot’s” black heart, doesn’t buy a word of it.
The rest of the town, including his lover, Jane Ford, thinks Mannion’s just being his old, stubborn, bloody self—especially when he catches Drago palling around with his daughter, Evangeline, and beats the old killer half to death on Del Norte’s main street for all to see.
Bloody Joe has finally gone too far. The town’s powers-that-be believe it’s time for Joe to go.
As the game of cat and mouse continues, however, and Mannion finds himself dodging a veritable lead storm nearly everywhere he goes, he finally finds himself in a bloody showdown on the stone mountain called Burial Rock, where he finds that not only his own life hangs in the balance but Jane Ford’s life, as well.
He’s going to have to move fast and shoot straight to escape a blood bath…
Town Marshal “Bloody” Joe Mannion is back in this third high-action volume in Peter Brandvold’s explosive new western series!
When Jeremiah Claggett, constable of the nearby ghost town of Fury, is murdered by Frank Lord, the kill-crazy leader of a dozen wild outlaws, Bloody Joe has to come to grips with the fact that he’s inadvertently to blame. Mannion had turned Frank’s brother, Billy, over to Claggett for safekeeping, setting off the chain of events that end his friend’s life. Mannion is the kill-crazy one now. Not realizing he’s being shadowed by Clagget’s beautiful, half-wild granddaughter, Justy, and an inscrutable saddle tramp, Mannion sets out on his vengeance quest.
In typical Bloody Joe style, he storms Lord’s gang single-handedly, which nearly proves to be his undoing—until he’s set upon by a mystery ‘Man of the Lord’ and given… something. Whether that something is good or bad Mannion has difficulty discerning.
Saints and Sinners is a crazy, dark, storm-ridden ride through the hell of the San Juan Mountains of southwestern Colorado. Whoever manages to ride out alive—saint or sinner, or maybe a combination—will be changed forever, baptized in gun smoke and blood.

And it’s going to take a man – and the woman the man loves – to see it through.
In The Curse of Skull Canyon, everyone in the Never Summer Mountains knows about the ancient Indian curse on Skull Canyon in the highest, remotest reaches of the range, not far from the ranch young Lonnie Gentry shares with his mother and infant half-brother.
When a man’s agonized wail lures him into the canyon, he finds a youth only a few years older than himself dying from a gunshot wound. Later, when savage men pour into the remote canyon, apparently searching for something they’re willing to kill for, Lonnie learns the extent of Skull Canyon’s horror.
Deputy U.S. Marshal Gideon Hawk gives some bounty hunters a lethal lesson in how reputations are made when a beautiful prostitute asks for his protection.
