The Sisters Brothers

A novel in the tradition of a true Western – saloons, gun-slingers, beautiful damsels, gold – it has it all!

This is the story of two brothers, the Sisters brothers, who are trying to make a living as hired guns for the Comodore. Each brother has his own demons, but they are an inseparable team. But, life has thrown them into a job where one brother starts to question the rationale for murder and he begins to imagine settling down to a normal life.  It almost looks like he may be close to his goal, when disaster strikes!
