Brighton Publishing releases Second Chance "A Chance Colt Literary Mystery"
"Author Tom Hawks continues the trials, trails, triumphs and tribulations of Sheriff Chance Colt in the second volume of his Literary Mystery series."
Synopsis: You can't keep a good lawman down. Especially a man like Sheriff Chance Colt. In this follow-up sequel to his first novel in the Chance Colt Literary Mystery Series, Chance and Circumstance, fiction writer and novelist, Tom Hawks, continues to follow the trials, trails, triumphs and tribulations of Sheriff Chance Colt. This modern-day American Western lawman continues his journey and quest of trying to keep the wild and wooly Santa Cruz County, Arizona citizens and this "Borderlands Region" just north of the Mexican border safe and secure in his latest novel Second Chance.
Second Chance continues the wild and wacky adventures of Sheriff Chance Colt and his unique posse of friends and co-workers, as they ride day after day through the American West, meeting up and squaring off with the always unusual, quirky and sometimes downright dangerous citizens and cast of characters from both sides of the International Border between the United States and Mexico. Some of the same characters from the first novel appear again, along with several new characters, as this 19th century lawman tries to make his way safely through this 21st century world we all live in.
Chance continues to use his wit, wisdom, common sense, dog sense, horse sense, Native American Indian philosophy, Zen Buddhist philosophy, sense of humor, charm and a bit of old-fashioned, smart-assed sarcasm blended with street justice to fight the never-ending battle between good versus evil in this world.
Second Chance continues this journey through the life and times of Sheriff Chance Colt and his comrades in arms. Sometimes giving someone a second chance is like…giving them an extra bullet for their gun because they missed you the first time.
What doesn't kill Sheriff Chance Colt today will only make him madder, badder and stronger tomorrow.
"Tom Hawks continues his masterful writing style in a work so vivid, that we feel as though we are fighting the bad guys alongside Sheriff Chance Colt in his never-ending battle between good and evil." said Don McGuire, of Brighton Publishing.This is the second volume in the Chance Colt Literary Mystery Series. Tom's first book, Chance and Circumstance was released in mid-2016.
