Product Description

Product Description


Freelance fighting man Carter O’Brien had five thousand reasons to go after the notorious Timberlake brothers. Each was a dollar bill.
But there was more to it that just the reward money. Isaac Parker, the ‘Hanging Judge’ himself, had asked O’Brien to track down the murderous outlaws. If he didn’t get them before they got the judge, Parker would wind up handing from his own gallows.
So O’Brien rode west into Indian Territory, a vast and lawless land that was home to more than one owlhoot gang, and before long he was swapping lead with a man who wanted him dead, and whiskey with a lady desperado called Belle Starr.
Waiting for him at the end of the twisted Timberlake trail was a final bloody showdown that could only end in death … and an unexpected surprise that could very well prove fatal.

More About the Author

David Whitehead is a prolific English writer and arguably one of the most influential British western writers of the past twenty 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.

Another great western from ben bridges. A real page turner in which O'Brien hunts down a gang of outlaws with a real twist in the plot at the end. Recommended

This one like all the other that I have read by this author had me wanting to keep reading. My wife wanting something to read started to read one and is not far off reading as many as me. She has never read any more western books before these.

O'Brien comes through again to the dismay of the bad guys and to the delight of the good guys. Pretty much unbelievable, but so it is with most action heroes

5.0 out of 5 stars If you like westerns this will grab your interest all the way thru the saddle sores. 30 April 2014

I recommend this book because it held my interest thru the entire book...every time O'Brien got in trouble or got hurt you felt like you were in pain with him. Every time he was he was shot at or stabbed you felt like you were in trouble right along side him.
When he was hurt and in a tight spot the point that you didn't think he would recover, it was very interesting how the plot would twist and he would survive.
All of Ben Bridges books are very good ...but this book has a great and loyal dog that protects him.... The outlaws are particularly vicious , mean and ruthless. His side kick is very interesting and adds a lot to the energy of the plot.

I promise you will be sorry that you can't have more adventure with the characters in this book . When you come to the end you will want more. I hope he writes a part 2 or 3 to this book.

2.0 out of 5 stars Just Getting Worse 28 Jan 2014
By Nobbyh2 - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I bought #1, #4, and #11 in the series. And they all disappoint. In fact they annoyed me more and more as I progressed. See my review of "The Silver Trail" for my opinion of O'Brien. I had hoped that by this time he would be more responsible and competent. He is not. Oh, sure, he can fight and he is a great shot with rifle or pistol; but to be so casual about the dangerous situations is utter foolishness. He continues to blunder in where any reasonable man would take precautions.

So, because of his lack of forethought, others die unnecessarily. Maybe I was just frustrated after reading two O'Briens in a row, but I only give this two stars
