The Hard Rise

Grave robbers? Drug dealers? Smugglers? When Hank Garnier returns home from war to find Los Pinos County scorched by wild fire, he stumbles upon two men up to no good in a dry creek bed at night. Hank is all alone but he will go all the way to the edge to get to the bottom of things. When the stakes are life and death, he'll rise to the occasion.

The Hard Type

They say Hank Garnier is an old soul, but as a 14-year-old boy Hank doesn’t know what that means.  When a gang of bikers rumbles through Los Pinos County on wild fury, Hank Garnier will find his courage and his virtue tested for the first time. "The Hard Type" is Carl Robinette's debut story.
