Come Sundown named as one of Whoopi Goldberg's "Favorite Summer Reads" on ABC's The View and one of NY Post's biggest blockbuster "Whizbang Books" of the summer. A novel of suspense, family ties, and twisted passions from the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Obsession... The Bodine ranch and resort in western Montana is a family business, an idyllic spot for vacationers. A little over thirty thousand acres and home to four generations, it’s kept running by Bodine Longbow with the help of a large staff, including new hire Callen Skinner. There was another member of the family once: Bodine’s aunt, Alice, who ran off before Bodine was born. She never returned, and the Longbows don’t talk about her much. The younger ones, who never met her, quietly presume she’s dead. But she isn’t. She is not far away, part of a new family, one she never chose—and her mind has been shattered... When a bartender leaves the resort late one night, and Bo and Cal discover her battered body in the snow, it’s the first sign that danger lurks in the mountains that surround them. The police suspect Cal, but Bo finds herself trusting him—and turning to him as another woman is murdered and the Longbows are stunned by Alice’s sudden reappearance. The twisted story she has to tell about the past—and the threat that follows in her wake—will test the bonds of this strong family, and thrust Bodine into a darkness she could never have imagined.

Just when the saloon becomes a financial success, Clyde's wife succumbs to cancer. Now, a lead man representing a shady group of moneyed investors from Las Vegas wants to buy the property and business Clyde has worked so hard to build. Revenues from the Horse Trough Saloon, and its adjoining space called the "opera house," support Clyde, his grandmother, and more than 25 employees. See what takes place in the small town of Stopgap when a man called "Junior" from up north buys a place just outside of town and befriends Clyde, his employees, and some special residents of Stopgap. Prepare for fireworks when the group of disreputable investors ramps up the pressure to try to force Wrigley out and take over his thriving business.

Come Sundown contains a collection of poems that will take you back in time, to the early 1950s and into the turbulent ’60s. You will find that there are poems that will take you into my world of pragmatic thought, the invasion of a dysfunctional or semi-dysfunctional mind, and my state of reasoning, which will seem mind-boggling at times. It contains memorable times of my youth, some fond and some are about my personal struggles and growing up on the south side of Chicago. Hopefully this book will leave you in awe of the past and incite you to ponder the future, luring you into reconsidering the value of family and friends. I try adding a little humor to some of my poems so that all won’t seem morbid or come from an irrational mind. We all have mountains to climb and rivers to cross, there are loves we’ve gained and so many precious ones we’ve lost. This book gives us a chance to look at life from different perspectives. Sometimes we seem to be drowning in a sea of non-conforming progression and yet there are anomalies that come into our lives which give us hope. We fantasize and we dream. After reading Come Sundown, you would have taken a dazzling trip into the realms of an altered state of being. You will find yourself descending deep into your own world of boundless thoughts and misconceptions. You will feel the gravitational pull into my mind and the challenges of yours, which allows a glimpse into the inner workings of an overactive mind. Not only does this book look at things from a dysfunctional point of view, it also takes a gentle look at the spiritual part of life.

Reluctant hero, Honore Greenwood, has a knack for embroiling himself in the most violent conflicts of the Southern Plains. Known as Plenty Man to the Comanches, Honore serves as ransom negotiator for captives among the Indians. As if his life wasn't in danger enough, Honore has offered his services to the New Mexico Volunteers in the Civil War. But as Honore's luck would have it, he's in the same unit as Luther Sheffield, a man whose grudge against Greenwood knows no boundaries, even though they are fighting on the same side. Leaving behind his beautiful Arapaho bride, Honore rides out, joining his legendary friend, Kit Carson, as a scout. But he is swept into more action than he bargained for—heavy combat in the battles of Val Verde Ford and Glorieta Pass plus Indian attacks—all the while watching over his shoulder for the ruthless Luther Sheffield. Worried that he may soon be ordered to take up arms against his own adoptive tribe, the Comanches, Honore resigns as Kit's scout to return to his tribe. But Honore's halcyon days among the Indians cannot last forever, and he knows that eventually his old cavalry unit will come to attack his village. Torn between a nation on the rise and his own adoptive culture, Plenty Man is forced to lead the fight for Comanche freedom against his old friend, the great Kit Carson, in a battle at a remote place in the Texas Panhandle called Adobe Walls. But in the end, it becomes difficult to tell enemy from ally, and Plenty Man knows his loyalty to the Indians may cost him everything – his beautiful wife, his freedom to return to white civilization, his friendship with Kit, and even his very life.

The Dark Ranger stalks the blood-soaked sands of the Old West in this supernatural thriller from the Bram Stoker Award–winning author of Sunglasses After Dark. His ghost-breaking skills are advertised on the back of penny dreadfuls, but Sam Hell’s real mission is personal. The former Texas Ranger’s life was changed when he came upon the town of Golgotha, where an inhuman evil had been unleashed in the form of a long-dead conquistador. Released from his grave, the Spaniard called Sangre massacred the locals and amassed a small army of the undead. Only Hell was able to escape, thanks to a containment charm buried with Sangre. But not before he was bitten by the vampire—and left for dead . . . He may have died as a man, but the Hell that awoke was now a creature of the night, saved by the magic of the Comanche shamaness, Pretty Woman. With their destinies entwined, the pair travel the West, tracking down those birthed at Golgotha and their unholy spawn. Until the carnage at a trading post leads them to a showdown with Sangre that will tip the fate of the world . . . Originally published in Dead Man’s Hand Praise for Nancy A. Collins “Possibly the most original voice in the world of vampire fiction since Anne Rice published Interview with a Vampire.” —Film Threat “Nancy Collins’ bone-colored, blood-smeared star—for she is certainly a star—stands bright and hot at the pinnacle of the horror heap.” —Joe R. Lansdale, author of Moon Lake and Bubba Ho-Tep “If there is such a thing as a splatterpunk masterpiece, Nancy A. Collins has written it.” —Asimov’s Science Fiction

By the end of the summer, the pearl boom was over, Port Caddo was doomed, and the mystery over who killed Judd Kelso began. It took Ben forty years to solve the mystery, and once he did, the proof came only for him to witness. He is the only living soul who will know what happened that September night in 1874.
