“Bad Bobby” Trent, star high school athlete, college scholarship holder, pro-rodeo circuit rider lived an unencumbered life. He was a man, who by his own definition, limited his concentration to no more than eight seconds at a time. The time required to ride a bull or saddlebronc and win. He’s tough, independent, shallow and always looking for a good time. Then his father is murdered.
Sheriff Robert Trent, longtime chief law enforcement officer of Lodge Pole County Montana. He was stern, fair, honest and dependable. He tried to see the best in people, and always ready to give them one more chance. Ambushed, shot dead at the side of the road. Set up by someone he knew. Now, rumors claim the sheriff wasn’t all that he claimed. Rumors claim he was dirty; paid off by persons’ unknown.
Slapped by reality, Bobby is determined to investigate the killing. He’s set on finding the one who did this. Only one problem, he doesn’t have a clue what he’s doing.
Winner of Readers’ Favorite Silver Award for Historical Fiction/Western, Kwen knew he wanted to be a writer when he was fourteen years old. He felt the urge when he finished Earnest Hemingway’s masterpiece For Whom The Bell Tolls. The story touched him in a way no other book ever had. It transported a kid born and raised on a farm and ranch in Idaho to the mountains of Spain. It took him back in time forty years to witness the Spanish Civil War. Kwen knew he wanted to share that wonder with other people.
