Clown William and the Wind of Vengeance by Robin ElnoA reluctant 1870s gunslinger with Tourette’s and a quick draw . . .
While the battle for Lincoln, New Mexico, rages on, William is consumed by his own war against Jesse Evans, the man he blames for the loss of his friends and the start of his life as a gunfighter.
But when William finds Jesse at his most vulnerable—jailed with a gunshot wound—he can’t justify pulling the trigger. A gunfight must be fair.
William braves hostile military territory to orchestrate his archenemy’s release—only to discover he has become the prime target for an army of bounty-motivated gunslingers. The hunter is now the hunted—and William must weigh whether revenge will give him the peace of mind he has been seeking.
Can William defeat his internal tornado before he becomes one of its victims?

Clown William and the Wind of Vengeance (Clown William series, book 3) By Robin Elno
Dolan rose from his chair with a grimace and limped to the telegraph in the corner. He pulled open a drawer, took out a crumpled telegram, and handed it to William.
TELEGRAM FOUND ON BODY. DUDLEY TOOK IT.
DR. STONE “Seems ye got business in Fort Sumner.”
William stood undecided, studying Dolan’s face. “What do you know about the Fort Sumner telegram?”
“Nothing. Jesse thought it important so I sent him to fetch it.”
“Then I will just wait here in Lincoln for him to bring it.”
A smile curled Dolan’s lip. “From what he tells me, that would suit him just fine. He said if you were to show up to keep you here, unharmed, until he got back.”
“So why tell me to g-go to Fort Sumner?”
“It’s inconvenient to me for you to be in town just now. Unless you’re working for me, that is. I’m taking over the Tunstall store.”
Anger knotting within him gave William’s vision red edges. He took a deep breath and then asked, “Did you forget about Susan McSween? What w-w-will she say about losing the store?” The fact of Alex’s death burrowed in like a tick. “Do you think she would sell to you after you k-k-killed her husband?”
“Mrs. McSween left for Fort Sumner this morning with the soldiers. I’m sure she and I will strike some sort of bargain. After all, without her husband, what other choice does she have?”
For a moment, William considered shooting the gunman, and then turning his revolver on the wounded Dolan. Alex, John, Brewer, even Emily, cried out to him for vengeance. Jesse was the venom, but this was the spider behind the web.
So easy to kill them all, then lie in wait for Jesse’s return and take him too. At least three more killings—some of them murders. Bile rose in William’s throat. What was he thinking? Was his soul that corrupt?
“I think I had better r-r-ride to Fort Sumner. If I can find my horse.
Praise for Clown William Series by Robin Elno!
“I couldn’t put this book down. The premise is brilliant: What happens when a peaceful man is given the gift of violence?
Clown William is an unwilling hero whose life is full of ironies he can’t escape. He doesn’t have control over his tics, yet he was born with astonishing control over a gun. He wants a peaceful life, but in every town William comes to, rogues force him to defend himself with violence.
The plot moves briskly, the characters are complex and well-drawn, and the writing style is lively and pops with poeticism. Clown William comes highly recommended.” -Greendancer, Amazon Review
“Robin Elno gives a fresh twist to the classic Old West gunslinger. His reluctant antihero with Tourette Syndrome just happens to be the fastest gun around despite his tics – which makes him a constant target of bullies and miscreants. This fast-paced story keeps the reader engaged from start to finish. The book is sure to satisfy everyone from the casual fiction reader to the most ardent Western aficionado. The first book in a series, I am eager to read the next installments.”-Tom M., Amazon Review
“A quick read, packed full of action, challenges, twists and turns and surprises. The characters are well developed and engaging. Mr. Elno manages to present William as a strong man and his challenges in a realistic, sensitive way, his handicap does not hold him back. The reader will be drawn into this story and held in awe as you follow William’s journey. An enjoyable and satisfying read. I look forward to reading more of Clown William’s adventures.”-April, My Book Addiction and More
