“It’s basically the adventures of a wild west sheriff without the badge and not in the wild west!” the author shares.

When asked what he would like to impart to readers with “Jack Wolfe: On the Trail of Murder,” Saxxon says, “First, escaping into a great story! For me, that is the most important point of a fiction book. But this story also gives the satisfaction of seeing justice served, something that doesn’t happen as often as we’d like in the modern world. I’d also say being honourable in your actions and listening to your instincts.”
