Two orphans flee Tillamook Head and one of them is branded hero. Dare they tell the truth and risk the wrath of a dangerous man?

An ex-lawman and Arizona rancher searches for his missing U.S. Marshal friend while he grapples to learn the game of golf on behalf of Lady Harriet Reed-Fletcher's celebrity charity tournament.

     
Excerpt
At twilight, twelve-year-old Hack Howard lined his cot with a couple lumpy pillows and covered them with the thin blanket that was his orphan farm issue. He picked up his worn leather shoes with only one gap in the right sole so he could slink quietly through the room.

None of the dozen of his male roommates stirred or stopped snoring.

He slid the door open, then closed it to a slit as his face warmed, his breath quickened. Miss Penelope Tagg left her station, slipped down the hallway in her sleek nightgown and pink, silky boudour cap...Hack sidled past the opening with his lanky frame, then stole to the front door. He unlocked it with the key he'd made out of a spoon in the blacksmith's shop.


Professional Reviews

NYT Best-selling author Jerry B. Jenkins
One hallmark of Stephen Bly's classic westerns is that they are complete-no shortcuts. Bly gives you the full experience, every detail, evoking a period he has mastered. Ironic then, that only his death could leave this one not quite finished. Tidied up by those who loved him and knew him best, Stuart Brannon's Final Shot delivers and reminds us what we'll miss most about the beloved author.



Award-winning author Kathleen Y'Barbo
Stuart Brannon: A labor of love from beginning to end, The Final Shot brings a fitting close to the beloved series. Bly throws his readers into the fray from the first page and never lets up until the final scene. Join Stuart Brannon as he masters everything from a runaway horse to bad guys to the newfangled game of golf. I've loved Brannon since his first appearance many books ago, and though I know he eventually had to hit the trail, he will be missed. And so will Stephen.


CWG Reviewer Jennifer Slattery
Lawman turned rancher Stuart Brannon has become a national legend—and he’s not happy about it. All he wants is to settle down and enjoy life on his Arizona ranch.

But when long-time friend and U.S. Marshall Tom Wiseman goes missing, Brannon receives a telegram from President Theodore Roosevelt asking him to come to Portland, Oregon, to aid in the search.

Another long-time friend, Lady Fletcher, asks Brannon to come to Portland for a different reason—to capitalize on his fame by enlisting him in a charity golf tournament. But Brannon’s never played golf and he’d rather not learn. So why does he find himself with clubs in hand?

Stuart Brannon’s Final Shot comes alive with vivid details that transport the reader to 1905. Readers get a glimpse of early 20th Century travel, experience an attempted train heist, and join Brannon on a crazy horse ride along the streets of Portland. Bly paints an intriguing and often comical story of adventure and loyalty, flavored with the unexpected.

The characters are unique, from a llama-loving woman swinging from chandeliers to a snaky narcissistic novelist. Stuart Brannon’s Final Shot has all the adventure one would expect from a Western, with enough humor to appeal to non-Western readers. With this final novel before his death, Stephen Bly’s legacy is sure to live on.
