 Angel of Death - A former lawman becomes a pastor of a small church in the old west, but can't outrun his violent past. Will he have to take up his guns again or will he get a hand from above?

Preview Snippet

One of the spookiest, and some say most unbelievable, incidents ever recorded from the old west, occurred on the night of October 16, 1875, in a town called Gilbert, in the state of Arizona. Spooky, for aren’t tales of death always just a little spooky, regardless of the circumstances? Whether or not this tale is believable depends on your perspective.


Having done hours upon hours of research, I can only say that I believe it happened, and that knowledge has, at least in some small way, altered my perception of what is possible and what is not.


It was unusually cool that day; normally it was hot in Gilbert. There was a freak cool breeze in the air. There weren’t any clouds in the sky. The new pastor of Gilbert Baptist Church, Russ Williams, was outside working in the church yard when an old friend rode up.


“Howdy, Charlie. What brings you way out here?”


“Russ, I wouldn’t have believed it if I hadn’t seen it with my own eyes. The foulest mouthed lawman, I’ve ever had the pleasure of knowing, is now a preacher, of all things.”


“Nothing stays the same forever, Charlie.


“I reckon not.”


“Get off your horse and come in for a spell. I don’t think you’ve ever met my wife, Helen. She’s in the house fixing dinner.”


“Russ, you remember a couple of years ago, when we were both deputies?”


“Yeah, sure, Charlie.”


“Remember back when you saved my life from that no-good bush whacker, Buck Carnes? He tried to kill me in cold blood without warning, but you got him first.”


“Yeah, I remember.”


“His brother just got out the pokey and he’s been going around saying that you shot Buck in the back.”


“I called him out. He turned around, gun in hand. I had no choice but to shoot first.”


“You don’t have to convince me, Russ. I owe you my life, and that’s a debt I intend to repay. Carnes is bringing his whole gang up here, and it’s not to sing hymns. He’s bragging to whoever will listen that he’s going to string you up and let the buzzards have you.”


“Charlie, why don’t we have supper?”
“Russ, did you just hear a word I said? He’s coming here and he’s got at least six or seven men, maybe more.”
