Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

An outlaw cavalry that cant be stopped—and one man with the courage to take a stand.

 

In Mexico, Wes Stone picked up his fathers gun, rode his fathers horse, and took on his fathers enemies. In California, he planted a band of savage criminals in the ground. Now Stone is heading up to the plains of Colorado, where a new kind of war has begun.

 

A dangerous band of mercenaries is going for the gold—enough to bankrupt the entire country. Their scheme: to raid four U.S. mints. Their weapon: an armored train tearing through the West like a fire-powered battle-ax on wheels.

 

From Durango to Dodge City, across a rugged land stained with blood, gold, and treachery, Stone follows a violent trail of honor. All that stands between victory and death is a quick-draw reflex—and the kind of .44-caliber justice that could tame the West and turn Stone into a legend.

“Compton writes in the style of popular Western novelists like Louis LAmour and Zane Grey…thrilling stories of Western legend.”—The Huntsville Times (AL)

Synopsis:

A KILLER STORM

 

In the dark of night during a raging storm, a criminal is on the loose in the Arizona badlands. His name is Wilson Orez. Half-Apache and a former cavalry scout, Orez is skilled with weapons, seasoned in the desert, and trained to keep a cool head while death lurks all around him. Or when it springs from his own hands.

 

Arizona Ranger Sam Burrack knows the only way to stop Orez is to kill him. But the madman has robbed a stagecoach, driven away its horses, and brutally pistol-whipped one of its passengers, leaving four unfortunate souls stranded in a desert on the verge of flooding. Now Sam must lead them to safety before he can continue his hunt for Orez—if he doesnt drown first.

Synopsis:

AND THE LAST SHALL BE FAST

Lawrence Shaw once got a boost out of being the quickest gun alive. Now hes partial to telling gunfighter stories rather than living them. But that doesnt stop every ornery shootist with an itchy trigger finger from trying to pull iron on Fast Larry Shaw…or a group of gamblers from wagering five grand on who will kill him…or a gang of cutthroat saddle tramps from slaying his wife while in search of him.

Racked with guilt for not saving his beloved, Shaw vows to shorten the life expectancy of her murderers—and any other hardcase who even thinks of sending hot lead his way.
