Brian Garfield
Brian Garfield was a historian, screenwriter, and a novelist. A Pulitzer Prize finalist, he wrote his first published novel at the age of eighteen. He would go on to write over seventy books across a wide variety of genres, and sold over twenty million copies worldwide.

Brian’s novel “Hopscotch” won an Edgar Award for Best Novel of the Year, and was also adapted into a 1980 film of the same name, which Garfield penned the screenplay for and co-produced.

His best known novel “Death Wish” has been adapted twice, once in 1974 which starred Charles Bronson and kicked off a five film franchise, and then again in 2018 with Bruce Willis. “Death Sentence”, the sequel to “Death Wish”, was adapted by James Wan in 2007 and starred Kevin Bacon. “Relentless” was adapted into a 1977 TV movie. “Fear in a Handful of Dust” was adapted into the movie “Fleshburn, while “Wild Times” was the basis for a 1980 TV mini series.

Brian was born in New York City on January 26, 1939 to Frances O’Brien and George Garfield. His mom was a portrait artist and a friend of Georgia O’Keefe, who actually introduced the pair. Brian was also the nephew of stage manager and chorus dancer Chester O’Brien, and a distant relation of Mark Twain.

During the fifties, he toured with The Palisades, who released on single on the Calico label. He went to the University of Arizona and served in the US Army and the Army Reserves from 1957 to 1965.

He and his wife Bina split their time between their homes in Santa Fe, New Mexico and Pasadena, California. They were supporters of an animal sanctuary in Southern California, called Wildlife WayStation.

He died in Pasadena, California on December 29, 2018 at the age of 79. His wife said that is from complications of Parkinson’s disease.

“Mr. Sixgun” is the first novel in the “Marshal Jeremy Six” series and was released in the year 1964. It was a dusty and hot summer in Spanish Flat, and Marshal Jeremy Six figured on the typical amount of trouble: brawls between cowhands and farmers, liquored up miners, and a couple scraps over cards or women. Then Ben Sarasen rode right into town.

Something ugly had been brewing and the mood in the town reflected this. People were on edge: where Ben walked, trouble was with him. Yet Jeremy could not help but respect the guy, coming close to liking him. However he knew that Oakley Madden’s bunch was ripe to start something, and if so, Ben was quite sure to be caught up in it.

It was then that Jeremy knew there would need to be a showdown, and either he or Ben would not be coming out of it alive.

“Relentless” is the first novel in the “Sam Watchman” series and was released in the year 1972. One Native American sheriff chases a gang of bloodthirsty bank robbers.

San Miguel would not exist if it weren’t for the copper mine. A hardscrabble town hewn right out of the Arizona desert, it is long on sand but short on excitement. Citizens head to Vegas a couple times a month, for fun, right after picking their paychecks up. Because many of the miners take their pay in cash, every two weeks over a million dollars moves right through San Miguel’s tiny little bank, which is watched over by some heavy security from the sheriff’s department.

This week, the security just isn’t strong enough. One team of shotgun-wielding guys bust into the bank. They disable the guards with mace, and kill one. They make out with the biggest bank haul in Arizona history. Sam Watchman, who is a Navajo state trooper, is hot on their trail. However these guys aren’t only robbers. They are also psychopaths. Sam’s in for the hunt of his life.

“The Threepersons Hunt” is the second novel in the “Sam Watchman” series and was released in the year 1974. No one knew better than Sam Watchman did about how you track down a runaway prisoner. He was an Arizona State Trooper and hunting escaped killers was only another day of work. However he did not like it since the escaped prisoner, named Joe Threepersons, was Apache. And Sam was a Navajo, so he could expect zero help out of the Apaches.

Then he learned there was much more terror on the loose than just one runaway prisoner armed with a .375 magnum rifle. The hunt for Joe Threepersons was covering something much nastier and much more lethal. And Sam had gotten in the way.

“Death Wish” is the first novel in the “Paul Benjamin” series and was released in the year 1972. Paul Benjamin is a successful accountant in New York City. One day, he’s enjoying a three-martini lunch when his home gets broken into by a gang of drug addicts. For only a handful of money, they brutally beat his daughter and wife up, leaving his daughter in a coma and his wife dead.

Paul, forced to reevaluate his views and stricken by grief, he becomes disillusioned with society and plots his revenge on the perpetrators, whom the cops aren’t able to bring to justice. Armed with a revolver and a total disregard for his safety, he sets off to even up the score.

“Death Sentence” is the second novel in the “Paul Benjamin” series and was released in the year 1975. This is the story of Paul Benjamin, one man that is obsessed with private justice and revenge. Revenge against the criminals: the rapists, the muggers, and the killers that prey on the helpless and the innocent.

This is the continuing saga of the hero from “Death Wish”, one ordinary guy pushed to vigilantism by the savage rape and killing of his wife and daughter.

When he moves to Chicago, Illinois to try and get away from his past, he knows he’ll continue his private and violent war. He knows too that this time around he could get caught. What he doesn’t expect is that he will fall in love with a very beautiful woman that is much more dangerous than the man stalking him.
