The brainchild of Amazon Kindle bestselling western writers Mike Stotter and Ben Bridges, PICCADILLY PUBLISHING is dedicated to issuing classic fiction from Yesterday and Today!
STARING DOWN THE DEVIL Even though bounty hunter Lou Prophet is clean out of money, he'd rather ride a cactus than be saddled with foreign royalty. But comely Russian Countess Natasha Roskov has a problem: Her sister has disappeared after finding a treasure trove in Arizona — and all the countess has to go on is a map. Prophet knows that a beautiful woman with a treasure map will attract trouble like wolves are drawn to a fresh kill. Now he's forced to take his noble employer on the ride of her life — while fighting off a pack of ruthless villains.
