Tamer: An Amos Kuttner Novel - Infantry Captain Amos Kuttner, a specialist in unconventional combat who spent twenty years fighting Mexicans and Indians on the American frontier, leaves the U.S. Army to roam Gold Rush California at the end of the Mexican-American War. When Kuttner is hired by the territory's last military governor as a "Tamer," a special law enforcment agent probing the murder of miners in an isolated part of the Gold country, he learns of a sinister plot that endangers the entire United States.
Part Western, part detective yarn, part spy novel, William E. Wallace's "Tamer" takes readers on an action-packed and intrigue-ridden tour of the violent and lawless California territory, an untamed region infested by Barbary Coast cut-throats, renegade U.S. soldiers and assorted gunmen and outlaws. Will the governor's newly-hired "Tamer" save the 1849 Constitutional Convention that will bring California statehood or will he fall victim to the plotters' bullets? Read Wallace's latest book, "Tamer: An Amos Kuttner Novel," to find out.
