On the last day of summer in 1994, while cowboy Phil Brooks was riding in the hills of Eastern Oregon, he was struck through the heart by a bullet fired from a high-powered rifle. Although an intensive police investigation was launched, nobody has ever stood trial for that murder.
Some locals speculate a woman was involved, or the young cowboy happened upon a drug drop, while others are convinced Phil's death had something to do with the trophy bull elk that inhabit the sprawling Fopiano Ranch where his body was found by Native American trackers.

Written by one of our favorite authors and western historians, Eastern Oregon author Rick Steber, Caught in the Crosshairs is a story full of intrigue, deception and of justice gone terribly wrong.
