1800s Wyoming Comes Alive in New Western Book Series Entirely Set In Jackson Hole, By Filmmaker & Novelist Eric Red

Monday, August 20th, 2018

JACKSON HOLE, WYO. (PRWEB) AUGUST 20, 2018

NOOSE, the first in a series of Western novels set entirely in Jackson Hole by acclaimed author and horror filmmaker Eric Red, has been released by Kensington Publishing in Mass Market Paperback and Kindle editions. Due to high reader demand from advance orders, NOOSE was already in its second printing before its official publication date.

An action-packed chase set along the Snake River from Hoback to Jackson in the last years of the old west, NOOSE is the story of Joe Noose, a bounty hunter, who is framed by a violent gang as the killer of the U.S. Marshal in Hoback. He sets out to clear his name and is chasing the gang as is new U.S. Marshal Bess Sugarland, determined to bring her father’s murderer to justice.

“Jackson’s history of women in positions of influence led me to have compelling women characters like Marshal Bess who is a key player throughout the series,” said Red, a part-time resident of Wilson, Wy. He noted that Jackson’s first all female city council is featured in NOOSE. “The balance of strong women characters with men in the book is drawing many more women readers than the typical Western novel,” he added.

Kensington describes the book as “Louis L’ Amour meets Pulp Fiction ” with Red bringing his trademark volatile action and bloody violence to the popular genre. Early reviews have termed it a fresh take on the classic Western and a fast-moving, gritty tale.

Said Net Galley review: “This book was a fresh, new look into Westerns. 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. 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!”

Red is the writer of such blockbuster films as The Hitcher, Near Dark, and Blue Steel, and writer/director of Cohen & Tate, Body Parts and 100 Feet. This is his sixth novel and first Western but has contracted with Kensington for at least three Joe Noose Westerns, all of which will be set in Wyoming.

MEET JOE NOOSE. A GOOD BOUNTY HUNTER WITH A BAD ATTITUDE.

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.

“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

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…”
