New York Times-Bestselling Author Jeff Guinn

speaking & signing Glorious: A Novel of the American West

New York Times-bestselling author of The Last Gunfight, Jeff Guinn will be stopping by our store with his gripping and impeccably detailed new novel, Glorious: A Novel of the American West. Set in the Arizona Territory in 1872, the book takes us into the Old West and the life of Cash McLendon, a man whose made a few mistakes and is desperately trying to outrun them. But just how long can he run before his past catches up with him?

About Glorious: A Novel of the American West: Cash McLendon has always had an instinct for self-preservation, one that was honed by an impoverished childhood and life with an alcoholic father barely scraping by on the streets of Saint Louis in 1872. He’s always had a knack for finding and capitalizing on the slightest opportunities, choosing the path of financial security over happiness or real friends. He eventually builds himself up from a Saint Louis street urchin to the son-in-law and heir apparent to industrial mogul Rupert Douglass. Though it lacks passion, his life seems securely set: a wife, a career, property, standing.

But when tragedy strikes, all of his plans and his entire future dissolve in an instant. McLendon’s instinct for survival kicks in; he flees Saint Louis, and Douglas assigns his enforcer, an ominous skull-cracker with steel-toed boots, to track him down.

With nothing to lose, McLendon attempts to reconcile with an old flame—a woman he was nearly engaged to but put aside in exchange for the life now in shambles. He heard through the grapevine that she and her father moved their dry-goods store out west, to a speck-on-the-map mining town named Glorious, in the Arizona Territory. There, McLendon tries to win her back, and in the process discovers a new way of life at the edge of the final American frontier. But he can’t outrun his past forever. . . .

Jeff Guinn is the bestselling author of numerous works of fiction and nonfiction including Manson, The Last Gunfight, and Go Down Together: The True, Untold Story of Bonnie and Clyde. The former books editor at the Fort Worth Star-Telegram and award-winning investigative journalist, he is a member of the Texas Institute of Letters and the Texas Literary Hall of Fame. He lives in Fort Worth. In order to have anything signed at a BookPeople event, a copy of the event book must be purchased from BookPeople.
