One of my favorite authors with one of his best characters, the Rev! I think I just have a "thing" for a man of the cloth with an itchy trigger finger! Reverend Jebidiah Mercer pulls into the town of Mud Creek just in time to be on the receiving end of an unjustly hanged Indian's curse! Nice, eh? Well, he and a couple of others get to do battle with the living dead, ol' west style! Definitely my cup of tea! And it's a quick read, so yum! ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0917053044, Paperback)

Dead in the West is the story of Mud Creek, Texas, a town overshadowed by a terrible evil. An Indian medicine man, unjustly lynched by the people of Mud Creek, has put a curse on the town. As the sun sets, he will have his revenge. For when darkness falls, the dead will walk in Mud Creek and they will be hungry for human flesh. The only one that can save the town is Reverend Jebediah Mercer, a gun toting preacher man who came to Mud Creek to escape his past. He has lost his faith in the Lord and his only solace is the whisky bottle. Will he renew his faith in himself and God to defeat this evil or will the town be destroyed?
