“The Man is comin’, Sheriff…bringin’ the hounds of Hell with him…”

On a hot morning In 1830s Texas, a cattle rancher limps into the tiny, isolated town of High Water. He’s battered, bloody, and near death but insists on speaking to the sheriff. “The Man is coming,” he warns, “and he’s taking over this town.” The townspeople fearfully brace for the newcomer’s arrival.

NB Author Joe Powers will keep you looking over your shoulder if you read this story during the nighttime. Set in the "old west",evil people (beings) take over the town. While not the usual genre I choose to read, I enjoyed this novel. Well done Mr. Powers. ...more

Good old fashioned horror novel set in Texas in the 1800s. Enjoyable reading, low Fbomb count, no sex. Just violent ways of dying. Think of Jason Momoa meets Clint Eastwood.

OK, let’s take a good old fashioned western story complete with a frontier town at the edge of nowhere and tip its reality bit-by-bit until it crashes into the universe of demons and hellfire. Toss in a broken demon fighter who’s not happy that he has to clean up a mess that he left undone on another continent years earlier and you have a formula for a whole new concept of a high noon showdown.

Terror in High Water is the debut novel of Joe Powers…and what a novel. The writing is crisp and evocat
