Welcome to High Water, Texas. Here in the 1830s, it’s a tiny hub for cattle ranchers in the middle of the vast, arid south Texas landscape. Things are usually pretty quiet in High Water. But not today.
Today, there’s a new sheriff in town. He’s known as The Man. He’s brought some of his friends with him. And things are about to get very interesting.
Introducing my novel, Terror in High Water. The reviews are already starting to creep in. Here’s a very nice one from JJ Carrier:
Terror In High Water is not your grandfather’s Louis L’Amour western, but a chilling 1830s period tale of a living hell, derived from the creative mind of acclaimed horror author Joe Powers. He takes a fresh look at the genre so prevalent, and popular, in the industry in 2019 in this page-turner and takes the reader on a dusty ride that shows you the path to redemption can be something you would never expect in such vivid colours of suspense and conflict. The book will remind the reader of such previous classics as DC’s Jonah Hex and Clint Eastwood’s High Plains Drifter, but it spins that familiar scenario on its head via the various twists he puts his characters, and the reader, through. But be warned, as you delve deeper in the novel you may have to go back to it time and time again once you finish it to remind yourself that if you believe in legends on both sides of the coin of good and evil, and hate and love, this tome might prove it 10 times over.
Terror in High Water is available in paperback and kindle on several platforms, including Amazon , with more to come.
