DEAD SET

Phil screamed again and leaned against Fortune to keep from falling over as he hopped on his good leg. Fortune was unbalanced and started to go forward. He heard a sharp intake of breath and threw up his hands. Too late. The force of Leroy’s blind haymaker was increased by Fortune’s forward movement and he took the punch full in the mouth. His teeth snapped together and the sound ricocheted around inside his skull and he felt like the inside of a TV set while a Western gunfight was in progress. He collapsed on to the floor and the tiles burned the side of his face.

‘He’s down,’ somebody said.

‘He crushed my cojones. I ought to kill the bastard.’

‘Let Haswall see him first, Phil. Later maybe.’

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

The son of a truck driver, Terry Harknett was born in Essex in 1936. He left school at fifteen and worked as a copy boy in a Fleet Street newsagency, later becoming a features writer for an international syndicate. Then for a short time he joined the exploitation department of a film company, leaving to work for a newsagency trade journal where, he became the Features Editor. Having written short stories and books in his spare time since the age of fifteen, he eventually turned to writing full-time. His first book was published in 1962 and well over 200 have since followed. Today he is best known as ‘George G. Gilman’, creator of the phenomenally successful western series EDGE, ADAM STEELE and UNDERTAKER. In addition to his CHESTER FORTUNE series, Terry also created the APACHE series (writing under the name William M. James) and JUBAL CADE, as Charles R. Pike. His movie adaptations include RED SUN and A TOWN CALLED BASTARD (under the name William Terry) and A FISTFUL OF DOLLARS (under the name Frank Chandler).
