About the book!!
Steve Dancy tales. Honest Westerns. Filled with dishonest characters.
In 1879, Steve Dancy sells his New York shop and ventures west to explore and write a journal about his adventures. Though he’s not looking for trouble, Dancy’s infatuation with another man’s wife soon embroils him in a deadly feud with Sean Washburn, a Nevada silver baron. Infuriated by the outrages of two hired thugs, the shopkeeper kills both men in an impulsive street fight. Dancy believes this barbarian act has closed the episode. He is wrong. He has interfered with Washburn’s ambitions, and this is something the mining tycoon will not allow. Pinkertons, hired assassins, and aggrieved bystanders escalate the feud until it pulls in all the moneyed interests and power brokers in Nevada.
Is a New York City shopkeeper tough enough to survive the Wild West?

What a fun read this book was. The Steve Dancy character is likeable and down-to-earth, but has some surprising talents that are uncovered as the story unfolds. I liked the link between the rough and ready spirit of the West and the complexity of the accompanying politics. The details of day-to-day living in a mining town, on the trail, at a cattle ranch, and in the political arena made this story really come alive. The other characters were well developed and you just have to love the elder Mrs. Bolton.–Amazon Customer
I have to say its one of the best western books I’ve read in a long time. You’ll find yourself lost in the book–the fast pace keeps it interesting. —Woman’sDay, Maritza Barone
The Shopkeeper is an entertaining story about a New York shopkeeper who has relocated to the wild west. The Shopkeeper is a smart gunslinger and star of a new western series. —Nashville Examiner, Diane Scearce
A great book, I do hope that The Shopkeeper gets the readership it richly deserves. —Blogger News Network, Simon Barrett
