Book Details

Bear Creek—the epitome of evil.

Josh Morrow’s dream of owning a ranch in Idaho’s Salmon River Country is derailed when his best friend is murdered in the Bear Creek gold fields. In his quest to obtain justice, Josh is plunged into a quagmire of corruption and wickedness. And then, to complicate matters even more, enter Sarah, an outcast prostitute looking for a ticket to respectability. Is she a friend, lover or just someone looking for a free ride out of Bear Creek? Josh has to decide—assuming he lives that long. However, staying alive might be difficult, given the character of the sheriff and his cronies. Few people trust them to uphold the law, yet no one dares challenge them. The simplest solution to this entire mess would be to just walk away but Josh’s conscience won’t allow that. Only time will tell if he is to take his stubborn loyalty to the grave. “A Bad Place to Be is a rollicking Western that readers will love.” —Pacific Book Review
