The Dark Sunrise

A Sheriff Aaron Mackey Western

"The sun has finally set on the violent hellstorm that fell on Dover Station, Montana, like a scourge. But when disaster returns, it falls to a lawman armed with a fistful of vengeance to make things right once more . . .


At long last, U.S. Marshal Aaron Mackey and Deputy Billy Sunday will see crime baron James Grant and his kill-crazy cronies stand trial for the mayhem and suffering they unleashed on the people of Dover Station. But as Montana Territory’s statehood is approaching, murdering devils like Grant can no longer be tolerated in positions of political power.

Or can they? Montana’s capital of Helena follows its own set of laws—laws that not only set Grant free, but give peacekeeping authority to a sadistic murdering gunslinger like Colonel Warren Bell, Mackey’s commanding officer during the war. The city’s leaders prefer keeping killers like Grant and Bell under their thumbs.
Mackey knows there’s no controlling these bloodthirsty madmen. And if they think they’re above the law, then Mackey and Billy will just have to appoint themselves judge, jury, and executioners . . .

"The 4th installment of the Aaron Mackey series totally delivers... it’s got all the action, tension, hard-boiled dialog, and atmospheric sense of impending doom that are the hallmark of these stories. The partnership and dark history between shared by Mackey and his deputy Billy Sunday is explored ever more deeply when a bad, bad man from their past appears out of nowhere, in league with Mackey’s nemesis and bent on destruction, while a brutal, horrifying fate befalls a fan favorite. Probably the best of the Mackey stories so far. Literally can’t wait to see where the series goes from here."

"I love westerns and Terrence McCauley's books about Erin Mackey. There are four of them are exceptional. All the great action horses bad guys Western towns and all that but so much more. The dialogues are meaty the plots are thick and you get hooked after reading the first novel. Doesn't matter whether you start 1 2 3 or 4. You will want to read the rest"
 Great character. Excellent plot

This is another entry in the Aaron Mackey Western series, each book better than the last. While they can be read in order, they easily stand alone. Highly recommended for those who love this genre."
