The Book of Murdock

Loren D. Estleman, winner of five Spur awards, is known for his snappy writing and well-developed characters. In The Book of Murdock, Estleman creates a gumpy, old lawman disguised as a priest. “Brother” Murdock travels to a small Texas town where he carries a Bible as well as a shootin’ iron, hoping to identify a gang of seven masked men involved in everything from bank holdups to cattle rustling.  Then Murdock runs into a shady lady from his past. Will she foil his undercover sleuthing? This Western mystery, intricately plotted, has a surpise ending.
