My 20th book, Soldiers Of Conquest, Lee And Grant In The Mexican-American War of 1846-1848 has been published as an ebook. In this war, the two men were comrades in arms in the war that conquered Mexico and took half of that nation's land area. That land now makes up the states of California, Arizona, New Mexico, and parts of Utah, Colorado,and Kansas. In addition that war allowed Texas to join the United States.

Today I have published novel 16, The Shadow Man. Check it out at FearlParker.com.
The time is 1846 with the
and United States poised for war over the American Southwest. The place is Mexico , where Jacob Tamarron has come after years as a legendary mountain man. Jacob is weary of mountain loneliness and brutal struggle for survival against Indians and fur thieves and comes to New Mexico and hoping to find a woman and have a family. He finds the new life he is looking for in Santa Fe , the proud and fiery Mexican woman. He woes and marries her. Then with savage suddenness, his new life is ripped apart by two of the most vicious men ever to ravage the West. James Kirker, a professional Indian killer out to make a fortune in blood money, and Simon Caverhill, a Texas senator, who with a handpicked killing crew and a master forger, is carving out an empire from the land of butchered New Mexico ranchers.

Thus begins a searing saga of search and vengeance as Jacob turns hunter again, this time hunting the men who destroyed all that he had created. With High Walking, a Comanche warrior whose woman and his children have been slaughtered, he uncovers a trail of murder and terror that leads him to his enemies’ stronghold. With cold savage fury that matches the power and cunning of their enemies, these two unlikely comrades fight to the death to take their revenge against the great odds against him.
