Dark Territory (A Sheriff Aaron Mackey Western #2) (Mass Market)
Out of Stock; Usually Arrives in 2-5 Days
In the boomtown of Dover Station, Montana, tracks have been laid and everyone’s looking to make a fortune, lawfully or not. And the law has something to say about it—one bullet at a time . . .
DOVER STATION—WHERE DEATH RIDES FASTER THAN THE WIND
A rash of deadly train robberies has the chief investor of Dover Station feeling itchier than a quick draw without a target. And he wants Sheriff Aaron Mackey to scratch that itch with every bullet his battered badge authorizes him to shoot. When Mackey and his backup gun down four kill-crazy bandits, they uncover a plot cooked up by respected citizens of Dover Station—someone who can pull enough strings to replace Mackey with a disgraced marshal from Texas. Now Mackey’s badge may not say much, but his gun defies all fear. Anyone who stands between Mackey and the future of Dover Station is about to become buried in the pages of history . . .
“Hard to put down . . . because of the gritty and stylish narrative, the virtually nonstop action.”

“Sheriff Mackey is a hard-nosed western hero…who packs a punch with both his fists and his guns. Prepare yourself for a fast-paced ride as you turn the pages as tension builds until the final chapter”
—The Historical Novels Review on Dark Territory
“Sheriff Mackey is clearly defined, realistic for the time period, and totally believable. The pace, from the opening pages to the final satisfying end, is unrelenting. An exceptional western novel.”
—Historical Novels Review on WHERE THE BULLETS FLY by Terrence McCauley
“Fans of crime fiction and thrillers know Terrence McCauley as a first-rate storyteller who can handle action scenes while capturing the mood of New York City in the 1930’s and today. Turns out, McCauley’s more than a fair hand at Westerns too…Imagine a spaghetti Western with flawed characters and nonstop action. Or Rooster Cogburn, without the eyepatch and a whole lot meaner.”
—Roundup Magazine on Where the Bullets Fly by Terrence McCauley
“A captivating western… the setting is harsh and evocative; the villain is sufficiently slimy and scheming; and even the violence is gratifying, as the punches are strong and swift and the bullets whiz by close enough to make readers' hair stand on end. The plot progresses with calculated, yet dramatic, twists and turns …The author manages to craft an ending that will strike the reader's sweet spot between being deeply satisfied and yearning for more. Folks picking up this title will likely seek out the preceding book and will eagerly wait for the next.”
—Booklist, STARRED Review for Dark Territory by Terrence McCauley
“Dark Territory has much to offer. Well written, it is at once a first-rate Western, expertly exploiting all the genre’s tropes and traditions, and a political thriller, as Mackey needs to rely on his acumen as much as his brawn and shooting skills. Well paced, its quieter moments are as compelling as its outstanding action set pieces. McCauley has definitely piqued my interest—I’m going to seek out previous works, as well as follow him in the future.”
