In Deadwood, you may lose your life. In Old West World you could lose your soul.

2021 Selah Selah Award Finalist for Middle Grade Fiction

Someone is coming for Nick -- and maybe his sister and all who ever helped him solve a "monster" mystery murder. Who is this phantom gunslinger and why does he want Nick to leave Old West World in a pine box? In the fifth book in the series Nick finds that loose ends from past cases may leave him tied to a train trestle with the Black Beauty's cowcatcher bearing down.

In this middle-grade mystery suspense, award-winning author Eddie Jones takes readers on a Wild, Wild, West ride to the peak of a snow-covered Georgia mountain on New Years night. In Old West World, doing the right thing may leave you on the wrong end of a tombstone.
