This is a brand-new ebook short story from Peter Brandvold, so you know what to expect: a lightning-fast pace, plenty of gritty action, well-drawn characters, and a vivid setting. POISON MEAN delivers on all counts. It's an excellent Western adventure yarn about outlaw Chet Villanova, who's so mean (as the title indicates), that he doesn't hesitate to double-cross and murder the other members of his gang so he can hightail it to Mexico with all their loot for himself. Along the way, though, he meets an old prospector and the man's beautiful daughter, and things take a few turns that Villanova doesn't expect.
I had a great time reading this story, and if you need a break from shopping and eating leftovers – or even if you don't – I highly recommend it.
