Product description

Product Description

Was it a curse, a vengeful ghost, or murder? Or was it all three?

When their friend Oren died from a fall from his horse, range detectives Mick and Casey are sorry to hear it, but not surprised. Oren was prone to carelessness.

But Oren was only the most recent of many similar deaths on that same spot on the same trail, and it seems clear the first to die there was murdered. Were all those other deaths just accidents or is there something more to what the locals call the Curse of Scattershale Gulch?

About the series: Mick and Casey McKee aren't exactly your average gunslingers. He's young and inexperienced, and has much too sunny a disposition for a gunman. She's younger, meaner, less experienced, but a much better shot. They got married the day they met, and now they're courting as they solve the mysteries of life around them.

This novelette is 8300 words long (approx 30 printed pages).

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable Short Story 10 June 2011
By Amber Miller - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This short story features the main characters from the author's Have Gun, Will Play (A Mick and Casey Mystery), which I read earlier in the year. It's a fun Western with memorable characters so you may want to check out the novel if you like the short story. This tale does stand alone pretty well though.

It starts out a little slow with some character backstory but the accessible writing style is easy to get into, and things move along into an adventure that should be enjoyable for mystery and western fans. I won't get into specifics since it's not a long story, but you probably won't regret picking it up and giving it a try.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Curse of Scattershale Gulch 25 May 2011

A fun short story, a mystery-western created for a Halloween telling. Even if it goes back up to 99 cents its well worth the read!

3.0 out of 5 stars Western promise 2 April 2012
By The Emperor - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
This was quite an enjoyable download. I used to like reading Louis L'amour books form the library.

This short story was quite enjoyable. The central characters are interesting. It is quite well written.

The story wasn't that brilliantly realised but I thought that it showed quite a lot of promise.
