President Hayes sent a message to US Marshal M D (Shorty) Thompson at old Fort Tularosa, New Mexico Territory. He was to investigate why so many mine owners are turning up dead. Also while he was there, find out why ore samples do not match the ore quality when it gets to US Government Mints in Nevada and California. During his investigation, while riding down Burns Gulch, Shorty is shot in the head and is in a coma for well over a month. When he comes to, he has no memory of who he is or why he is there.

Shorty Thompson is bad news...for the bad guys
I read Shorty Thompson: U.S. Marshall and I just had to read the second second book, Black Range Silver. I met Mr. Thompson at my Local Union in New Mexico and he told me that he wrote westerns about our state. He was gracious enough to go out to his truck and gave me a copy of one of his books, but not before he signed it for me. Perhaps my 5-star reviews may be considered by some to be biased, however I truly enjoy Mr. Thompson's books. I am surely going to purchase the next one as well. If you like a good western story, with heroes, villains, and wording as they spoke during that period, I think you will enjoy Mr. Thompson's books as much as I do. I'm gonna ride off into the sunset for now on my horse called Literature with my next Paul Thompson book, Willow Lane. Happy trails and good reading to y'all !
