FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
J. R. ROBERTS’ THE GUNSMITH #402-‘KIDNAP A GUNSMITH’ NOW AVAILABLE!
One of the most popular characters in Adult Western fiction rides again in print from Pro Se Productions. J. R. Roberts’ Clint Adams gets caught in THE GUNSMITH #402-KIDNAP A GUNSMITH.
When Clint Adams rides into Casa Grande, Arizona, everyone starts talking. Women rush to be near him and smart men step out of his way. But some just simply aren’t sharp enough to be afraid of The Gunsmith.
Only planning to stay a day or so, The Gunsmith finds himself inadvertently tangled up in a fight between two families. The Tanner brothers, trying their hardest to be bad men, come into conflict with the Colters, the reigning outlaws in town. Owing them money, the Tanners come up with a dangerous idea when they learn Clint Adams is in Casa Grande. They intend to kidnap The Gunsmith for ransom!
Suddenly in danger from all sides, including a kill crazy gunslinger desperate to add him to the notches in his pistol, Adams finds himself unable to trust anyone, even the beautiful women pursuing him. As families fight, it falls to The Gunsmith to deal out death, just to make sure he rides out of town alive.
