Joe has posted the UK cover for his next book Red Country.

Carrying on the theme of maps and weapons used on the previous two books – Best Served Cold & The Heroes – this one shows the area the story is set in with some knives.

The wrap around gives you the full effect and the blurb…

They burned her home.

They stole her brother and sister.

But vengeance is following.

Shy South hoped to bury her bloody past and ride away smiling, but she’ll have to sharpen up some bad old ways to get her family back, and she’s not a woman to flinch from what needs doing.  She sets off in pursuit with only a pair of oxen and her cowardly old stepfather Lamb for company.  But it turns out Lamb’s buried a bloody past of his own, and out in the lawless Far Country, the past never stays buried.

Their journey will take them across the barren plains to a frontier town gripped by gold fever, through feud, duel and massacre, high into the unmapped mountains to a reckoning with the Ghosts.  Even worse, it will force them into alliance with Nicomo Cosca, infamous soldier of fortune, and his feckless lawyer Temple, two men no one should ever have to trust…”

Looking good and will sit nicely alongside the rest of the collection with the battered document style. And if further proof were needed as to who everyone assumes (hopes) the character “Lamb” is, then read the first line of Joe’s text where he quotes a familiar line.
