LONGSHOT INTO THE WEST by the Amazon Best-selling author of LONGSHOT in MISSOURI, Keith R. Baker.

Joined by the young William Cody and a man named Lonnie Walters, Rob Finn (aka Longshot) struggles Westward to the gold fields of the unsettled territories beyond the States. Union and Confederate sympathizers vie for the yellow metal to sustain their respective governments war efforts.

Still recovering from the loss of his wife, (while considering Molly as likely replacement), Rob will need to adjust to the challenges of the West, its wildlife and some questionable people to satisfy his orders. The greater challenge may be dealing with his discoveries about his government…

Readers of the first book in this series, LONGSHOT in MISSOURI, have commented:

“Keith R. Baker in Longshot in Missouri tells a Civil War story from a fresh perspective that will leave the reader wanting more.” James D Best, Best-selling author of the Steve Dancy novels.

• “The author has a special talent for creating a clear picture, but also allows us to use our imagination and become more personally involved in a way that so few authors do today.”

• “I was impressed that the story was told in such a way that I felt like I knew the characters personally. The book was refreshingly without vulgarity or unnecessary sex.”

• “I really liked the character of Rob Finn. Not your usual assassin in that he has feelings. He definitely isn't a cold blooded killer. He has a conscience. And even though he is a farmer by trade, he is smart and learns new things very quickly. ”

Though each book is a stand-alone novel, LONGSHOT INTO THE WEST, has its starting point just a few weeks after the first book in the series ends. It is the second book in the series.
