The action takes place in Broken Bridle, Wyoming where the sheriff resembles more of an eastern type dude than a western town sheriff. Shawn O’Brien is a known town tamer who becomes entangled in the problem the town has with a man named Becker who is holding the town in his tight grip. Becker has assembled some gun hands to make sure his grip remains tight so people won’t mess up his long term plans.
In the hills, drums pound and make the people scared of going near the hills. The man in the hills is a psychotic killer who has been fleeing the law and his only care is himself. He figures he knows how to diagnose people’s sanity; the problem is Dr. Cranston was not sane himself, but he is greedy. He has a hold on the hills in order to remove the vein of rock that is guaranteed to make him rich beyond his wildest dreams.
What happens is an action-packed story with more characters than I revealed to you here. The plot has more twists and turns along with other actions that will keep readers entertained for hours in the Old West. I love reading Johnstone books; many are quite good. This one is a good one. Though not my favorite, I enjoyed it nonetheless. Pick up a copy then sit and get lost in the pages in a very suspense-filled thriller that really gets tense at times! ( )

The Greatest Western Writer Of The 21st Century

From America's bestselling Western authors comes the violent saga of the frontier legend known as the Town Tamer: the man who rides in when all attempts of law and order have failed.

Shawn O'Brien--Taming A Town Held Hostage By The Devil

In Broken Bridle, Wyoming, Jeremiah Purdy, the town's tinhorn sheriff is a college kid who wants to become governor some day. But outlaw Darius Pike couldn't care less about anyone else's ambitions. With Pike holding Broken Bridle in a bloody grip of terror, Purdy sends a desperate cry for help--to Shawn O'Brien, town tamer. Shawn's mission: ride to Wyoming and pry Broken Bridle loose from Pike's reign of fear. What Shawn finds is that something even more evil than Pike is haunting Broken Brindle. Now, in a storm of bullets and blood, in a deal with the devil, Shawn O'Brien can only tame this town by entering hell itself. . .
