Jake Base - orphaned at an early age, and now the last surviving member of his family. Adopted and raised by the Plains Indians as one of their own for ten years and destined never to be totally accepted by either the white man or the Indian. Now he's a no-nonsense US marshal tracking two killers down into Texas he discovers more than he bargained for. There are the confusing emotions of a new, and unexpected, love - which in turn puts him in grave danger. Jake has difficult choices which will need to be made. People will be hurt in the process. This story has it all, bar room brawls, brutal murder, cattle rustling, dusty streets and the lovely Maria Sanchez. Throughout everything one thing remains constant, the one silver coin. The Tainted Dollar.

About MR Chris G Derrick

Chris G Derrick was born and grew up in a small town situated between the cities of Bath and Bristol in the south west of the UK. Born in 1957 his favourite genre of film has always been the Western. A birthday treat to watch The Magnificent Seven with some young friends when he was around six years of age no doubt had a hand in developing his life long appreciation of the Old West. After leaving school Chris started his working life as an accountant, with a short spell in HM Royal Marines in his early twenties. From the 1980's onwards he earned a living as an IT professional up until the end of March 2013. Chris's favourite part of the world happens to be the south western states of the USA - Arizona, Nevada, New Mexico, Texas and Utah. He'd always enjoyed writing, creating a picture with words, and still maintained his affection for a good Western and the cowboy way of life. With this in mind Chris decided he'd combine these three things - and write a Western himself set in those states of the USA. The Tainted Dollar was written with a keen eye on western history, and there are plans for other books to follow. Each one will retain Jake Base - if not as the main then certainly as a central character within each story. Jake Base - a US marshal, but one with a difference.
