Death At The Switchback, the second book in the Turner Brown Westerns series has now been published. 

Death At The Switchback is the story of 'Little Bill' Dolan's deadly robbery of the Santa Fe-to-Albuquerque stagecoach.A gruesome crime that left U.S. Deputy Marshal Turner Brown no choice but to swing into the saddle and hunt down the killers. 

In a challenge to New Mexico's well-connected elite and the Territory's politically corrupt, Brown proves, once again, that one man with courage, a keen eye and a fast draw, can make a difference. 

Aided by a legendary one-time Texas Ranger, a haughty and proud scion of New Mexico's purebred Spanish aristocracy and an arrogant cattle baron's reformed range boss, Turner Brown brings a measure of justice to an often-lawless land. 

The Cowboy Chronicle, the 'Bible' of the Single Action Shooting Society (90,000 Cowboy Action Shooters around the world) wrote:  Death at the Switchback is a gripping story peopled with memorable characters, from a legendary one-time Texas Ranger to a beautiful Spanish aristocrat.  Just likeDeath on the Trail, Yount’s first Turner Brown Western, Death at the Switchback is another outstanding, traditional Western escapade sure to please fans of Western novels.  
In fact, it is Steven Yount’s familiarity with the history of the Old West and his attention to every facet of Western life that makes Death at the Switchback the factual Western adventure that it is.  

Death on the Trail, the first book in the Turner Brown Westerns series, is the story of former U.S. Deputy Marshal Turner Brown, outraged by the murder of three innocent people and in search of absolution for his own past transgressions against the innocent, once again pins on a badge to pursue the callous bank robbers who are responsible for the murders. In the process, he delivers a small measure of justice to an often-lawless land. 

The Cowboy Chronicle, the 'Bible' of the Single Action Shooting Society (90,000 Cowboy Action Shooters around the world) wrote: "Death on the Trail is an excellent, old-fashioned Western adventure with all the riding and shooting a fan of Western novels would expect.  Lots of Indians, too.  And, a little bit of romance thrown in for good measure. 
What makes Death on the Trail a true Western adventure is author Steven Yount’s knowledge of Western history and attention to detail." 

Reader reaction to Death on the Trail and Turner Brown: 
"I think Turner Brown is a stand up guy. (I)t's nice that he worries about his soul every time he takes someone out. If I'm ever shot as a horse thief or whore beater, I hope the guy feels downright awful about it. I thoroughly enjoyed it."
