“A fresh, new look into Westerns as we have known them.” – NetGalley

Wednesday, July 11th, 2018

“The Wild West and a bad-ass Bounty Hunter cowboy….a winning combination! When said Wild West is a Weird Wild West it’s even better!!! This book was a fresh, new look into Westerns as we have known them. IMO, today’s westerns have become very stale, and pretty much the same across the board. It was so very refreshing to read a story that brings a brand new perspective to this genre. I absolutely LOVED Joe Noose. He was bad-ass (I’ve already said that didn’t I?). He was IMO snarky and to the point. The way he turns the tables on those who tried to wrong him was a fascinating and exciting ride. I hope there are more books to come with this MC! Anyone who has become bored with the Western genre, give this one a try! You won’t be sorry.” – NetGalley

Louis L’ Amour meets Pulp Fiction in NOOSE, the first Joe Noose Western from Kensington Books.

Thursday, June 28th, 2018

“Brings volatile action & bloody violence to a classic genre, injecting modern speed into old west legend for the first in an edgy, gritty new western series.”

On July 31 2018, Eric Red, acclaimed author and writer of such blockbuster films as The HitcherNear Dark, and Blue Steel, brings Jack Reacher action and Pulp Fiction violence to the Wild West for a bloody, action-packed new series. NOOSE is the first installment of the Joe Noose Westerns, featuring a bounty hunter with a heart of gold and a taste for violence.

In the cutthroat world of bounty hunters, Joe Noose is as honest as they come. Which isn’t saying much. Just look at his less-than-honest colleagues. They framed Joe for a murder they committed. They made sure Joe’s face wound up on a wanted poster. Now they’re gonna hunt Joe down and collect the reward money. There’s just one problem: Joe Noose thinks it’s his bounty. It’s his reward. And it’s their funeral…

HANGING FIRE publisher’s description: ”THE DEVIL IS A WOMAN…In all his days as a bounty hunter, Joe Noose never met an outlaw like Bonny Kate Valance. The notorious female gunslinger has the kind of beauty that drives men wild—and a criminal record longer than the Snake River. She also has a date with the gallows. But before anyone can put a rope around that pretty neck, Joe Noose has to bring her in alive. On the way, he’ll have to protect his prisoner from a vile ex-lover and a vengeance-seeking posse. Which puts Noose’s neck on the line, too. Especially when this female of the species is deadlier than the male…”
