Building a Railroad then trying to rob it.

As I mentioned in the last post, I've updated the "blurbs" for my released work and here is another.
"The Great Liquor War" was originally published in 1998 by Daison Publishing and here is a shot of that first cover.
I have to take a moment to thank Marilyn Meikle of "Signs & Things" for the pencil sketch that became that cover.
The new cover is over to the right but now it is available in multiple digital versions as well as trade paperback.
"The Great Liquor War" is the beginning of the Hank James story which is continued in "Homesteader: Finding Sharon". I'll have a new "blurb" for it as my next posting.
Building a Railroad then trying to rob it.
“The Great Liquor War”

Hank James is trying to make his fortune panning gold but it isn’t exactly working that way. However with the help of an “inside source” he does well betting on a prize fight.
With his winnings Hank invests in a new business hauling freight to build the new railroad. With luck, hard work and good help he does well. Then his “inside source” from the days of the prize fight expects help when the BC Provincial Police face off against the North West Mounted Police.
While the police forces fight each other who is watching the criminals? If Hank is identified as helping the law will they try to make him pay for his interference?
And while all the thievery, shooting, killing, arrests and trials are going on, what happened to Hank’s new girl?
