Book Description


Arch Bowman raped and murdered his way across the West to become the stuff of legend. But when he survived a near-fatal shooting in Colfax, Colorado, he decided to make the most of his new lease of life and finally settle a long-standing piece of unfinished business …

But that didn’t mean Bowman was about to go soft. Before he was through, innocent men would die in legendary numbers, and Bowman would make sure that life was hell for a mild-mannered farmer named Walt Canaday.

As it turned out, that proved to be his worst mistake … because if Bowman was back from the dead, then Canaday was back with a vengeance.

"A superb natural storyteller," -- Twentieth Century Western Writers

"Ben Bridges is arguably the best western writer Britain has ever produced," -- Steve Hayes, author of Viva Gringo!

"A consistently original western writer whose talent has been touched by genius," -- Mike Stotter, author of McKinney's Revenge

More About the Author

David Whitehead is a prolific English writer and arguably one of the most influential British western writers of the past thirty years. Born in London in 1958, he sold his first book, THE SILVER TRAIL, in 1984. It marked not only the first appearance of his popular continuing character, freelance fighting man Carter O'Brien, but also the first time he used his best-known pseudonym, Ben Bridges. Since then David has written more than seventy books; westerns as Ben Bridges, Glenn Lockwood, Matt Logan, Doug Thorne, Carter West and ten under his own name. In addition to this he writes romantic fiction as Janet Whitehead and has co-authored nine thrillers with Hollywood screenwriter Steve Hayes. David's entire back-catalogue is now starting to appear on Kindle, where all of his westerns are now being reissued under the Ben Bridges byline.

5.0 out of 5 stars Back With A Vengeance 17 July 2013
By R. Moschgat - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is only the second story that I have read by Ben and I am now a huge fan! This title grabbed my attention from page one.

Back With A Vengeance is the story of a man and his family, and the lengths that he will go to protect them. Ben, brings the old west to life not only with his descriptions, but with his dialogue, and characters. Like I said in a previous review, you care about the characters in his stories. They are people that most of us can identify with even today.

If you are a fan of tales from the old west and haven't read a Ben Bridges story, do yourself a favor and do so. I'm off to grab me some more of Ben's stuff!

This was a very good Book, for the price you can't go wrong. It was hard to put this book down, it really keeps you interested in it, which that can't be said by some other Authors, as you probably know. Hope you enjoy it, as I did.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well written 7 April 2013

Format:Kindle Edition
It was nice to read about the regular farmer sticking it out against tough odds. Nice change of pace. I wouldn't recommend if your looking for the gunslinger hero. This has a different but maybe a more realistic hero.
