Tom Rizzoabout this book: Classic Western, With a Twist
A sudden, stabbing sensation drove through the back of his right arm, forcing him to his knees. Clawing at the muddy ground, he dragged himself forward with one hand. Thunder, sounding like cannon fire, rumbled across the night sky masking the sound of a bullet whistling past his head. The next one ripped into his left forearm, slamming him face down in agony, both arms bleeding and useless. Another bullet scorched his thigh like a hot poker, pain and shock rippling through every nerve ending in his body and he crumpled to the ground, onto his back . . . Lightning flashed across the sky, and the last thing he heard sounded like distant gunfire.
Inspired by actual historical events, LAST STAND AT BITTER CREEK opens with a patrol of soldiers massacred, a hidden gold shipment missing, and the theft of a priceless US historical document.
Betrayed and blackmailed, Union Army spy Grant Bonner becomes the target of an unrelenting manhunt when a secret mission is compromised. For some soldiers, the war isn't over, and won't end until Bonner makes his Last Stand at Bitter Creek.
