Excerpt

Doc Brand felt the rocks bite into his knees as he hit the ground.
Dust billowed around him as slumped over onto his back. Eyes shut against the punishing bright glare of the sun, he lay there, contemplating whether or not it was even worth the effort to try and get back on his wobbly feet or if he should just keep his eyes closed and wait for the inevitable. He was bruised, battered, and the last coughing fit that racked his beaten body had brought up blood.
Doc had worked the county of Rock Creek for just a little under twenty years. There wasnít a man, woman, or child within a dayís ride that he hadnít tended to in some fashion or another in all that time. He had always believed that his patients respected him for his years of devoted service.
Until today.
At best, he weighed a buck fifty on a good day. Of late, heíd been losing weight, despite continuing to eat normally. He had also noticed a slight tremor in his right hand that had not been there before. He wasnít sure when the shaking had started, but he found it disconcerting, to say the least.
After a while, he found the strength to pull himself to his feet yet again. Every time he fell or simply stopped, swaying under the weight of his torment, he became disoriented.
Once the world stopped spinning wildly around him, he eyed the sun and the shadows of cactus and reckoned where he needed to go. On unsteady legs, he made his way across the hard land, the sun beating down on him and burning the back of his neck.
Despite his bruised knees and aching bloody body, Doc Brand set his chin and started walking again while through cracked lips he cursed the vultures who circled above as well as the men who had left him in this predicament.
