Stuart Brannon's Final Shot: A Stuart Brannon Novel
It Took a Personal Request from President Teddy Roosevelt to put Stuart Brannon Back in Action.
In 1905, at 58 years old, legendary lawman Stuart Brannon – now a rancher and widower – had no intention of leaving his beloved Arizona Territory to attend the Lewis and Clark Centennial Exposition in Portland, Oregon, nor to participate in the celebrity golf tournament for the Willamette Orphan Farm. Even an emotional appeal for a longtime friend didn’t persuade him. His life no longer consisted of bloodthirsty men to track down… people trying to kill him… lawless gangs preying on the innocent.
Then the telegram came: Stuart, I need you in Portland. Tim Wiseman is missing. I think there’s a cover-up going on. Tell folks you’re going to the Exposition. Nose around. Find out how a U.S. Marshal can disappear and no one knows why. I’ll contact you there. T.R.
No way could Stuart Brannon refuse a personal request from the President of the United States. Filled with humor and heart, adventure and romance, “Stuart Brannon’s Final Shot” is the story of a man who embodied the Code of the West.
“Bly does a lot of things right for lovers of the traditional western...(he) clearly knows the country he writes about … Luke Short and Frank Gruber come to mind.” — Library Journal
“One hallmark of Stephen Bly's classic westerns is that they are complete — no shortcuts. Bly gives you the full experience, every detail, evoking a period he has mastered. Ironic then, that only his death could leave this one not quite finished. Tidied up by those who loved him and knew him best, Stuart Brannon's Final Shot delivers and reminds us what we'll miss most about the beloved author.” Jerry B. Jenkins, novelist & biographer.
