The wolf hunt, a tale of the Texas badlands, Will Brandon - paperback

In the desolate Croton Breaks of West Texas a spectral creature with a six-inch pawprint has spooked livestock of late. When British-born cattle baron Basil Wolverton is found dead outside his own ranch gate, cowhands and nesters whisper of an ancestral curse, the dire wolf of legend. Sir Basil's executor calls in detective Derrick Miles and his assistant Dr. Frank Hooper to deduce whether there's been a crime committed ... or some diabolical force at work. Transporting the Sherlock Holmes classic The Hound of the Baskervilles to the American West circa 1891, The Wolf Hunt reimagines Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's thrilling tale with a Texas twist on a murderous beast, a fugitive outlaw, greed and grit, affairs of the heart, and a landscape yet untamed
