In the boomtown of Dover Station, Montana, tracks have been laid and everyone’s looking to make a fortune, lawfully or not. And the law has something to say about it—one bullet at a time . . .
Dover Station—Where Death Rides Faster Than The Wind
A rash of deadly train robberies has the chief investor of Dover Station feeling itchier than a quick draw without a target. And he wants Sheriff Aaron Mackey to scratch that itch with every bullet his battered badge authorizes him to shoot. When Mackey and his men gun down four kill-crazy bandits, they uncover a plot cooked up by respected citizens of Dover Station—someone who can pull enough strings to replace Mackey with a disgraced marshal from Texas. Now Mackey’s badge may not say much, but his gun defies all fear. Anyone who stands between Mackey and the future of Dover Station is about to become buried in the pages of history . . .
“Hard to put down . . . because of the gritty and stylish narrative, the virtually nonstop action.”
—Publishers Weekly on Terrence McCauley’s Sympathy for the Devil
“Fans of crime fiction and thrillers know Terrence McCauley as a first-rate storyteller who can handle action scenes while capturing the mood of New York City in the 1930’s and today. Turns out, McCauley’s more than a fair hand at Westerns too…Imagine a spaghetti Western with flawed characters and nonstop action. Or Rooster Cogburn, without the eyepatch and a whole lot meaner.” – Roundup Magazine on Where the Bullets Fly by Terrence McCauley
“Dark Territory has much to offer. Well written, it is at once a first-rate Western, expertly exploiting all the genre’s tropes and traditions, and a political thriller, as Mackey needs to rely on his acumen as much as his brawn and shooting skills. Well paced, its quieter moments are as compelling as its outstanding action set pieces. McCauley has definitely piqued my interest—I’m going to seek out previous works, as well as follow him in the future.” – Mystery Scene on Dark Territory by Terrence McCauley
