A 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?

REVIEW by LAWonder10:
William is tired of all the killing!
He blames Jesse for his plight since he was the one who first put a gun in Williams hand. He feels the only justice is to kill Jesse in a fair fight.
How does a gunfighter ever quit? There is always someone who will try to outgun him.
Because of his physical infirmities, most feel he is mentally slow and incapable. He has worked a system to use his infirmities to his advantage.
William soon learns he is not in control of the situation. He, also, discovers those he can trust and those he cannot.
For all who enjoy tales of the "wild West", this will surely become a favorite series.
It is about a time when only the vilest men lacked in strong principles and when one's word was one's life.
This is a great story, based on facts, to entertain YA and adults, as well.
The characters are very believable and well-portrayed. Th events are well described and the reader can easily visualize them.
The story steadily flows in a smooth manner and action is "just around the next corner".
I offer a Five Stars rating
*This book was gifted me with no pressure for a positive review. This is my honest review.
Robin Elmo is a retired Army colonel, semiretired psychiatrist, and full-time author. He lives in San Antonio, Texas, where he is an active member of the San Antonio Writers’ Guild. Elno’s Clown William series was inspired by the work of neurologist Oliver Sacks, who wrote about the unusual speed and accuracy often displayed by people with Tourette’s syndrome. Intrigued by the idea that strengths can rise from differences, Elno created the unique and compelling character of Clown William. Elno’s novels are often set against true historical backdrops like the Wild West.
