The Broken Badge III

The Final Chapter

By: D.F. Sparks


About the Book
Samuel Cooper, a former Texas Ranger turned United States Marshall, a highly religious man and a firm believer in reincarnation, the afterlife, heaven, hell, the devil, and most of all, “God”, had dedicated his life to upholding the law and defending the innocent when his parents were killed by a gang of marauders. He set out on a personal journey to bring every one of these men before the bar, to answer for the blood they had shed, and the innocent lives they had destroyed. The leader of this gang goes by the name of Klein, a cold-blooded killer who feels nothing for anybody or anything. After a long pursuit, Cooper is finally captured by the notorious outlaw and with his dying breath, he places a curse on the outlaw and swears that another will wear his badge and will come for him. When he does, hell will be in his right hand in the form of a Colt 45. This is the story from the start to finish at the legend of the broken badge. Maybe right doesn’t always win, but it always makes a strong statement and brings forth a judgment either in this life or the next.
