A Fistful of Legends: "One Day in Liberty" by Jack Giles
On February 13, 1866 the Clay County Savings Bank in Liberty, Missouri was robbed of $60,000, and one citizen was killed. It was the first daylight bank robbery in the United States. Some folks believed, and still believe, the job was done by Jesse James, Cole Younger and a crew of other former Confederate guerrillas. But was it really?
Jack Giles (alias Ray Foster) tells the tale from a new perspective, with his own cast of desperate characters. It’s a great twist on history, from a fine storyteller. Jack/Ray is the author of nine western novels (so far). His latest, Lawmen, was published by Black Horse in 2008 and Linford Western Library (Large Print) in 2009. He blogs at Broken Trails.
"One Day is Liberty" is one of the 21 tales between the covers of the Express Westerns anthology A Fistful of Legends. Got your copy yet? For more posts on A Fistful of Legends, click HERE.
