A Gunfighter’s Promise! ©2011 by Raymond Cook is a 233 page eBook story about a gunfighter by the name of David Liley born and raised in Marble, Colorado in 1890. At age 18, he left his mother, father, three brothers and two sisters and set out on his own, relying on his gun hand to make a living and a reputation for himself. James and Elizabeth Liley were constantly worried news would come that David had been killed or was in some jail accused of murder.
But they also knew there was nothing they could do but pray he one day would come back home. Jim, Patrick, and his brother Curt ran a sawmill business with their father on their ranch just outside Marble, Colorado. Their sisters, Karen and Cheryl helped their mother around the ranch, raising hogs cattle and chickens, growing a huge garden and apple orchard which provided them additional income selling vegetables and fruit in town.
Shortly after David returns home, his father and brother Curt are ambushed and murdered. The posse following the trail of the killers are found murdered. David, Jim and Patrick along with a neighbor, Sam Bates are ‘deputized’ to hunt down their families killers. One day, when David stops an angry mountain man who is beating a woman to death, a gunfight ensues and David has to kill him.
When David’s friend, Sam Bates is jumped by horse thieves and turns up missing, David tracks the horse thieves to their camp after being jumped by a large cougar and a gunfight ensues. David settles down to his new life as a husband and rancher after Pamela gives birth to his son. One day a gunfighter comes to Marble and confronts David in the street to find out who really is the “Fastest Gun.” After that gunfight, Pamela will make David choose between his life as a gunfighter and that of a husband, rancher and father.
