Buffalo Dance

"an immersive and exciting historical work that weaves in layers of action, adventure, suspense, and mystery...a highly original and enjoyable western novel." - K.C. Finn for Readers' Favorite

Cimarron Jack Wheatley is one of 1890s America's most popular Wild West show stars. When a visiting European royal sees Wheatley perform, he decides he must have the showman as chief scout on a goodwill buffalo-hunting expedition on the high plains of Colorado. The visiting monarch wants the whole Frontier West experience, Indians included.

From the outset, conflicts are inevitable, especially when the U.S. State Department assigns Colonel Phil Gunnison to oversee security for the foreign dignitary. Gunnison's disdain for Wild West performers is exceeded only by his love of the bottle and his hatred of Indians.

When an unidentified assassin makes an attempt on the life of the expedition's royal guest of honor, accusations fly, and factions take to fighting in defense of their claims of innocence. The resulting confusion and distrust make it even easier for the determined conspirators to take another shot at their target.

Will Jack--working without the benefit of a badge--manage to identify and stop the assassins before the visiting royal, as well as innocent guests, face an untimely death?
