The Samaritan's Pistol by Eric Bishop
Oh wait, you're here! Reading my blog post. How thoughtful of you. I promise you won't regret it, either, because I have the fabulous Eric Bishop here dishing on his favorite cowboy movies.
Even among his small town neighbors, Jim is a content man. Despite the emotional baggage from his time serving in Desert Storm, he successfully runs a ranch, owns several beautiful horses, and makes extra cash as a wilderness guide for wealthy tourists. He's a modern-day cowboy. That is, until he runs into an ongoing mob-hit while riding in the mountains. Now, his most beloved horse is bleeding to death, three mobsters are dead from his smoking gun, and a wounded criminal is begging for his help.
Jim has to make a decision. He can either high-tail it out of there, or accept a tempting offer made by the criminal-a promise of millions in stolen mafia cash for any help he gives.
Of course, only an idiot would turn down such an appealing offer when they're marked for death anyway. Besides, Jim's good nature cannot allow him to leave someone for dead, even a criminal. Soon, Jim finds himself on a trip to retrieve a truckload of stolen money near the Las Vegas strip, right under the Mafia's nose. But even if they escape with the cash, will Jim's conservative neighbors provide sanctuary for their local Samaritan, and how far will the mafia go for revenge?
Thanks for joining us today, Eric! And thanks to YOU, my loyal readers! Now go eat some hamburgers!
