Deputy U.S. Marshall Chance Bowie is feeling his mortality and longs to find his family, and he’s got a clue with a 20-year-old old letter from his grandmother’s estate. Chance Bowie, the star of this new novel, is on medical leave for a condition that is expected to kill him, so it’s now or never if he wants to locate his father, brother, sister and cousin. Against the backdrop of the heyday of the California Gold Rush, this tale features murder, adventure and a marshal’s idea of frontier justice.
“The Last Chance: Murder and Justice” takes place in Weaverville, a bustling mining town in 1894 that served as the county seat of rural Trinity County. The mammoth La Grange Mine, the world’s largest placer mine at the time, lures men hoping to strike it rich. Chance, a lawman, gunfighter and gambler, is used to being on the move, tracking down those wanted on warrants for the last 25 years. He learns that one of his siblings is dead but nobody knows who the killer is. He begins to find clues and decides to implement his own form of justice. As word spreads that the legendary gunslinger is in town, the gunfights and ambushes increase. When Chance meets someone who will change his life, he must take charge of his destiny.
