International Writers Inspiring Change featured book: Twelve Palominos: A Brig Ellis Tale, by Joe Kilgore

San Diego Private Investigator, Brig Ellis, is hired by a wealthy industrialist to help him acquire the final horse in a set of twelve palomino miniatures that once belonged to the last Emperor of China. What begins as a seemingly reasonable assignment quickly morphs into something much more sinister. The intrepid gumshoe finds himself having to bargain with brigands, kibitz with kidnappers, clash with commies, and duel with a stone-cold assassin incapable of feeling pain. All while navigating potentially deadly pitfalls instigated by his employer’s beautiful but enigmatic daughter. Conflict and danger increase at warp speed as Ellis tries to make sure this ill-fated job isn’t his last.
