Dead Man’s Hand by Eddie Jones


Dead Man’s Hand: The Caden Chronicles,

When teenager Nick Caden visits Deadwood Canyon Ghost Town on vacation, he has no idea the adventures that await him. He witnesses the murder of Billy the Kid. He reports it to the sheriff. When they don’t find the body, the sheriff doesn’t believe him. Nick meets a girl named Annie Oakley who tries to help him find Billy the Kid.

Encounters with Wyatt Earp and Jesse James as well shootouts and bank robberies staged for the vacationer’s enjoyment will keep teenaged boys – and girls – on the edge of their seat as Nick and Annie face danger from the killer.
