Jory Ludek had a hard night of whoring and drinking and didn’t expect to be woken up so early as he lay in a bed in one of the sleeping rooms of a cantina. His partner, a cantina girl who had been paid for her time and efforts, took one look at the large bearded man and his shotgun and silently fled the room as directed. Bounty Hunter Bodie Kendrick is the man directing her actions as he intends to take Joey Ludek back to Socorro in the New Mexico Territory dead or alive. While he would prefer t ...more

It’s always good news when a writer you admire has a new book. It’s even better when it’s in a genre you like.

Wayne D. Dundee is best known for his hard-boiled Joe Hannibal private eye novels. Lately he’s turned his attention to the Western, with impressive results. “Hard Trail To Socorro” is the latest of these, introducing bounty hunter Bodie Kendrick. Since this is billed as Book One we’re assured there are more to come.

The tale kicks off to a fast start as Kendrick rouses wanted outlaw Jory

If you like a good western - you'll like this one by Wayne Dundee. It is a story about a Bounty Hunter that finds his man and has a heck of a time delivering him to Socorro to get his Bounty. It has a few fights and gunfights and a romance interest as well as Indians and Soldiers. It has good guys with badges and bad guys with guns. Pretty much got everything you need in a good western.
Carol and Gary Curtis
Good Western drama, including many of the usual adventures of the genre. Cowboys, Indians, gun fights and even a "little" romance. Well worth the time.
