Free today from Amazon: Blind Trail
by Mark Bannerman, first published in hardcover by Robert Hale Ltd, 2004. UK DE
Whilst on military patrol, Lieutenant Raoul Webster, United States Cavalry, is blinded in a freak accident. Granted furlough by the Army, he subsequently sets out, guided by his young brother, for San Francisco where he intends to consult an eye doctor. But en-route, the stagecoach conveying them is ambushed by ruthless Mexican bandits. Raoulís brother is cold-bloodedly murdered, as are the driver and male passengers of the coach. Raoul survives, but is left alone in the wilderness, vulnerable to all Fate can throw at him. He is kept alive by one burning ambition: to track down his brotherís killer. Surmounting incredible difficulties, he follows a bullet-strewn trail south of the Mexican border. And there he faces a bloody showdown with those guilty of the ambush and murder.
