That Damned Coyote Hill - Heath Lowrance
Three hustlers have come to Coyote Hill to scam the towns inhabitants with a boxing match, unknown to them a rider, Hawthorne, is following them. He is intent on seeking revenge on the men for taking the life of someone he loved. When he confronts them at the fight, killing one and setting off a chain of events that sees a local being taken hostage, he is unaware that the town has a secret that will see all three men wish they had never ventured into Coyote Hill.
Engaging short story that is well written, has interesting and well fleshed out characters and is creepy enough that it left a lasting impression. The author is someone I would definitely read more of.
