Trouble Man available again for only $2.99


Best known for his novels of mystery and suspense, Ed Gorman is also a practiced Spur Award winning writer of westerns, in both novel and short story form. "Simply one  of the best western writers of our time," said the ROCKY MOUNTAIN NEWS. "Gorman turns the western genre on its ear much like the western writing of Elmore Leonard," wrote BOOKGASM. "Ed Gorman's western stories are anything but ordinary. They often take place in lonely,tragic, mythical landscapes," noted GOODREADS. "Western noir...and Gorman's certainly the best at it," declared SOMEBODY DIES.

Ray Coyle hadn't been a real gunfighter for ten years, and that was the way he liked it. He would have been content to live out his life as a performer in a Wild West show. But then he got the news that his son was dead, killed in suspicious circumstances, and so Coyle set out to discover the truth.

Coopersville was a town full of secrets, most of them ugly. Brutal ex-convict Harry Winston knows those secrets, many of them involving the wealthy Trevor family. And Harry wants not only money but also revenge on the Trevors. His plans are complicated by the arrival of Ray Coyle, who has a score of his own to settle with one of the Trevors . . . and for anybody to get what they want, blood will have to be spilled.

Master storyteller Ed Gorman spins a dark, compelling tale of greed, lust, and murder in TROUBLE MAN, one of the best Western noir novels ever written, now available again from Rough Edges Press. Powerful, tragic, and deeply compassionate, Gorman's critically acclaimed stories and novels have made him one of today's leading authors of Western, crime, suspense, and horror fiction.

This is one of your westerns I haven't read, but I'm going to change that very soon. I'm glad to see it back in print.

This is good news, Ed. Good for Rough Edges Press, good for TROUBLE MAN to be back in circulation once again ... I think I communicated this to you in the past, but when TROUBLE MAN first came out in paper it was at a point when I had first relocated to Nebraska and was living out here alone while Pam and family stayed back in Illinois to get our house there sold. I had fantasies of having all this "alone time" to do a ton of writing in my motel room each night, like an old-time hack writer churning out page after page ... Wrong. I was lonely and miserable as hell much of the time. Books were old friends that kept me company and got me through. I remember TROUBLE MAN in particular during that period. It not only was a good read, it became a friend BY an old friend and thereby all the more comforting. I guess that's one of many things to be found in a good book --- companionship. That also makes it one more thing that causes me to feel sorry for people who DON'T read.
