Jim isn’t one to toot his own horn, but I don’t labor any such restraints. Jim’s most recent western, Murder at Thumb Butte has just been released. It’s available in paperback and downloadable forms. I met Jim after having discovered his historical novel, Tempest at Dawn, (reviewed here) a novel that gives insights into the Constitutional Convention, based on a close reading of Madison’s Convention notes. Jim’s latest book, however, is a western, and is the third book in his popular Steve Dancy series.
