My Gun is My Passport

Winner of the 2013 Beverly Hills Book Award for Military Fiction!
The early 1900s. A time just after the American gunfighter, and right before the noir detective. A time when men with a certain experience were called upon to solve difficult problems - men like Johann Gunther, former military officer, ex-Texas lawman, and owner of a special firm called Remedies Detective Agency in Ft. Forth, Texas. Gunther, having served under Teddy Roosevelt in Cuba, finds himself summoned by the president in 1905 for a special assignment. His job, to accompany a U.S. and British Army expedition to faraway Afghanistan and find a missing Colonel. Once he arrives, he discovers the Colonel is involved with Russians in the “Great Game” of turning Afghanistan into a pivotal point in a land grab for all the riches of the Asian continent. Join Gunther as he tracks renegade Indians in Montana, then battles foreign spies in a deadly Atlantic crossing. Ride with him as he fights vicious, bloodthirsty tribesmen and political madmen through the Straits of Gibraltar into India and up the Khyber Pass for a climactic battle at a fortress atop the world.
"The great American hero/anti-hero returns, in a classic, big adventure that unfolds like Lonesome Dove
meets Indiana Jones.
Gunther, like my other character Jack Kellog, in Be Bad Now
, is a serial character, and he returns in Last of the Gunmen
." - Hock Hochheim
