The Tower Part 6

Monk Buttman Mysteries

A story of cowboys and wizards in 7 parts.


Doe Johnson, the territorial governor, did not care for the news his adjutant James, standing with Captain Cartigan by his side, presented. He had work to do, important work. He took in the two men standing before him, shaking his head. Talk of fantastical towers and wizards, evoking old world legends held no purchase for him out here in the west. They belonged in children’s books.

“Strikes me as sheer nonsense, Barton. And I must say, it disturbs me to see you so captivated by foolish stories.”

James stood firm. “I know how it sounds, and if I hadn’t been in the tower and witnessed it myself, I’d think it was nonsense too.” James put his hands on the governor’s desk and leaned in. “But it’s not.”

Johnson leaned back in his chair and shook his head some more.
