After seven years married to Steve Bannister, Linda discovered to her horror that she really didn’t know her husband at all. Settled in a good town with a suitable lifestyle, she was now faced with a sudden move. It could be in the middle of the night – or the middle of a meal – such was the threat of danger.
Steve’s past was catching up with him. And the only way it could be stopped was with a smoking gun.
Once again Clayton Nash (real name Keith Hetherington) has written a very fast moving story that proves to be very difficult to put down. It’s filled with fascinating characters on both sides of the law and you have to wonder how Bannister can possibly protect his family from the heavy odds stacked against him.
The first thing Bannister has to do is get his wife and daughter hidden away safely and then he can take the fight to his enemy, using hit and run tactics that end in an explosive, nail-biting climax.
Hetherington packs a lot into this short book, gunfights, murder, savage beatings, rape, kidnap, and an exciting chase of a train, and more. He even manages to include mention of one of his other characters, Bronco Madigan – who appears in books under two of Hetherington’s pseudonyms, Clayton Nash and Hank J. Kirby – and these brief mentions have me eager to hunt down some of these books to find out more about the missing lawman Madigan.
If you like books filled with well described action and excellent dialogue then I suggest you buy a copy of this now before it sells out. Bad Day in Babylon was officially published on May 29th.
