"...has a chance to be judged one of those rare modern Western fiction classics." —JEFF GUINN, NYT bestselling author
Reimagining the american west...
THE SHERIFF is a breathtaking new novel that NYT bestselling author Jeff Guinn says “has a chance to be judged one of those rare modern Western fiction classics.”
The novel features a diverse cast of memorable characters often overlooked in Westerns past—whose competing interests collide in an epic battle for the soul of the West.
Authors Robert Dwyer & Austin Wright have incorporated elements that will appeal to readers of all genres, including major twists and a fast-paced plot predicated on clashes of indomitable will.
Advance praise for the sheriff
"I think that THE SHERIFF by Robert Dwyer and Austin Wright has a chance to be judged one of those rare modern Western fiction classics. The authors somehow manage to be both traditional and surprising on every page. As in real frontier history, most hats are shades of gray, and characters are three-dimensional rather than lazy caricatures. Dwyer and Wright are skilled atmospheric writers—readers will feel themselves breathing in dust and gunpowder and whores' perfume and the grand sharp scent of adventure. The town of Three Chop, grizzled Sheriff John Donovan, assorted outlaws radiating real menace, women just as desperate and cunning as any of the menfolk—there's damned fine storytelling here."
—Jeff Guinn, New York Times bestselling author and winner of the Western Writers of America Spur Award for Best Traditional Novel
