For former bank robber Mark Cross, AKA the notorious Frank Palmer, taking that shot won’t be easy.
For nine years Mark’s secret life as a criminal has been kept under wraps.
Working on a secluded cattle ranch in Redemption, California, with his adopted son Chase, all he wants is to forget the past.
Maybe even hope for a family of his own one day? Perhaps his love for Lisa Bannister, an old flame, will be rekindled?
But the past is catching up on him.
Frank soon hears on the grapevine that his old gang, the Colters, are hitting up all the banks across the country, working their way towards Redemption.
But the Pinkerton Detective Agency, hell bent on throwing the gang in jail, won’t be far behind.
The sudden appearance of a beautiful, mysterious new woman in town convinces Frank his cover has been blown, especially when she starts showing an obsessive interest in him.
He turns to the only man who knows his story, Sheriff Townsend, a man he has helped many times as a free hire gunslinger. Frank knows he needs his help if he’s to weather this storm.
And with everybody wanting to find the real Frank Palmer, he also knows that time is running out.
What does his old buddy and partner in crime Sam Colter want with him? And how much do the Pinkerton’s know already?
The Hunt for Frank Palmer is a story of love, loss and redemption, told with all the panache of a classic shoot-em-up Western. It is the sequel to the first book in the Frank Palmer series, Redemption.
