A mysterious artifact. A kidnapping. And a cowboy detective.
Barnaby Wilcox is one low-down, rotten scoundrel—the perfect credentials for the Wild West’s best private eye.
His current case: tracking down a kettle. That’s right, a kettle. Times are tough. He’ll take what he can get. Besides, the kettle in question is a ransom item. Kidnapping cases are always fun.
Rumor has it the kettle is cursed. Everyone who touches it ends up in a pine box. But the kettle puts a different kind of curse on ol’ Barnaby. It was once owned by slaves, and Barnaby has been doing his best for the last twenty years to drink away grim memories of the black soldiers who died needlessly under his command during the Civil War.
But he can’t delay forever. He has to put away the bottles and the memories if he’s going to find the kettle. The kidnappers are getting impatient. And more people are turning up dead.
The Clements Kettle is the first book in the Barnaby Wilcox Wild West Mystery Series. If you like rough cowboys, sinister ladies, breathtaking action, and loads of humor, then you’ll love this page-turning series, perfect for readers of private detective fiction and fans of Spaghetti Western movies.
