Cora and her husband hunt things - things that shouldn't exist.

“A brilliant, bloody, violent dark fantasy – Charlie Huston turned up past 11.”
- Andy Remic, author of the Clockwork Vampire Chronicles
“From its opening chapter, The Dead of Winter lassoed me into
its gritty world of gunslingers and demons. A page-turning thrill ride
of a novel that could well redefine your perception of the ‘wild’ west.”
- Rio Youers, author of Westlake Soul
“The Dead of Winter ain’t your granddad’s Western. Lee Collins paints a picture of the Colorado wilds as cold and unforgiving as the creatures that inhabit them. And in Cora Oglesby, Collins has created a heroine as tough as saddle-leather, and as fiery and sharp as rotgut whiskey. Read it with the lights on – but for damn sure read it.”
- Chris F Holm, author of Dead Harvest and The Wrong Goodbye
