Dispensing lead from the saddle of his grey quarter horse, a ‘nameless’ rider shoots his way across three states into the unsuspecting town of Flandersville. Along a well-ridden track of vengeance: gun smoke, whiskey and the highfalutin invective of frontier living imbue rowdy charm into the characters inhabiting the untamed pages of this story. Flash tailed saloon girls and bartenders that know their customers by name, by drink and by proclivity service the needs of hard-bitten, hard drinking, hard loving men come into town to whoop it up for the night.
In the cold light of day, however, the warm embrace of hard liquor and soft women cools quicker than love after a shotgun wedding; yet with any luck still standing after good fortune fell at last night’s gaming tables, a sober man has more lead in his gun belt than in his body and more rousing tales he can tell around a cowpoke campfire than regret.

If you like your protagonists rough around the edges, and your working girls full of cuss and sharp riposte, read on and find ‘Rider on the Storm’ populated by a posse of unsmoothed, uncensored, characters adding Wild to the West of America’s frontier legend.

Reader caution advised: Black Jack ain’t no howdy-do western; it rides the rails of more gritty recent interpretations of the genre.
