When an American anthropologist joins an archeological expedition researching a structure high in a previously unexplored range of mountains in the Tanami Desert of Western Australia, they discover more than they ever dreamed or imagined.
Even though the local Aborigines tried to warn them, the team from Sydney has no use for primitive folk tales, and no time to waste. It’s the hottest time of year and the monsoons are long overdue.
Science demands answers in a place where something older than the dream time waits to feed its ancient hunger.
Who will live and who will die in the land down under, out back of beyond?
Bob Logan-Death is the Dealer
When Bob Logan arrived in Dodge City, Kansas Territory, the main street was crowded. Wagons stacked high with buffalo hides lined up to unload their cargo on the newly arrived Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe railroad. The raw hides made the atmosphere heavy with the stench of rotting flesh. The smell was appropriate for the time and place.
There was no law in Dodge. it quickly became known for its stinking wickedness. No wonder the place was called “Hell on the plains.”
That’s what brought Bob Logan to Dodge City. If you were willing to do anything for money, in this town, you could make a killing.
Once again, the troubled young man with a bad reputation will tempt fate and put his life on the line. He’ll have to play the hand he’s dealt, but in a game with stakes this high, can a man hope to win when death is the dealer?

In a profession where he’s one person one day and another the next, will anyone know who he really is?

Sometimes it’s not.
When they have to choose between heaven and hell.
Some like it hot.
A lifetime of reading led me to writing. All those years of education did not prepare me well enough for the challenges of being a writer. I've learned and grown in wonderful ways since I wrote that first Western-Bear Creek.
