DOVER STATION—WHERE DEATH RIDES FASTER THAN THE WIND
In the boomtown of Dover Station, Montana, tracks have been laid and everyone’s looking to make a fortune, lawfully or not. And the law has something to say about it—one bullet at a time . . .
A rash of deadly train robberies has the chief investor of Dover Station feeling itchier than a quick draw without a target. And he wants Sheriff Aaron Mackey to scratch that itch with every bullet his battered badge authorizes him to shoot. When Mackey and his backup gun down four kill-crazy bandits, they uncover a plot cooked up by respected citizens of Dover Station—someone who can pull enough strings to replace Mackey with a disgraced marshal from Texas. Now Mackey’s badge may not say much, but his gun defies all fear. Anyone who stands between Mackey and the future of Dover Station is about to become buried in the pages of history . . .
Praise for DARK TERRITORY
“A captivating western… the setting is harsh and evocative; the villain is sufficiently slimy and scheming; and even the violence is gratifying, as the punches are strong and swift and the bullets whiz by close enough to make readers' hair stand on end. The plot progresses with calculated, yet dramatic, twists and turns …The author manages to craft an ending that will strike the reader's sweet spot between being deeply satisfied and yearning for more. Folks picking up this title will likely seek out the preceding book and will eagerly wait for the next.”
—Booklist, STARRED Review
“Sheriff Mackey is a hard-nosed western hero…who packs a punch with both his fists and his guns. Prepare yourself for a fast-paced ride as you turn the pages as tension builds until the final chapter” – The Historical Novels Review
“Dark Territory has much to offer. Well written, it is at once a first-rate Western, expertly exploiting all the genre’s tropes and traditions, and a political thriller, as Mackey needs to rely on his acumen as much as his brawn and shooting skills. Well paced, its quieter moments are as compelling as its outstanding action set pieces. McCauley has definitely piqued my interest—I’m going to seek out previous works, as well as follow him in the future.” – Mystery Scene

WHERE THE BULLETS FLY, VENGEANCE REIGNS
If anyone can smell an investment opportunity, it’s railroad men and big city bankers. They’re not the kind of folks that Sheriff Mackey is used to dealing with. But greed is greed, and if anyone knows how money can drive men to murder, it’s the sheriff of a boomtown like Dover Station. But when Mackey is forced to gun down a pair of saloon rats, it brings a powderkeg of trouble—with a quick-burning fuse of vengeance named Alexander Duramont. This bloodthirsty psychopath wants to kill the sheriff for killing his buddies. And he plans to get his revenge using a highly combustible mix of fire, fear, and dynamite . . .
Mackey’s not sure how he’s going to stop this blood-crazed lunatic. But it’s going to be one heck of an explosive and very violent showdown . . .
Praise for WHERE THE BULLETS FLY
“Sheriff Mackey is clearly defined, realistic for the time period, and totally believable. The pace, from the opening pages to the final satisfying end, is unrelenting. An exceptional western novel.”
—Historical Novels Review on WHERE THE BULLETS FLY by Terrence McCauley
“Fans of crime fiction and thrillers know Terrence McCauley as a first-rate storyteller who can handle action scenes while capturing the mood of New York City in the 1930’s and today. Turns out, McCauley’s more than a fair hand at Westerns too…Imagine a spaghetti Western with flawed characters and nonstop action. Or Rooster Cogburn, without the eyepatch and a whole lot meaner.”
