Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Mart Kincaid, a tall, ruggedly good-looking young man in the Clint Eastwood mold, may be the fastest gun in the state, but it does him no good—because his gun and his life are not his own.  They belong to Gar Malone, the King of Concha Basin, a ruthless rancher driven by his thirst for power, wealth, and conquest.

Now Gar has set his sights on the Singing Canyon spread—the richest land in the basin—and he commands Kincaid to run its true owners off.  If not, he threatens to reveal a dark secret that could ruin Kincaid’s brother.

But there’s more to the Singing Canyon ranch than Kincaid bargained for.  There’s the Drake family—specifically the lovely young Sally Drake.  The last thing Kincaid wants to do is drive her away.  Meaning he’s got to get out from under Gar’s thumb, and put his trigger finger to work.  It’s time to settle up, once and for all, with the blackmailing Malone. 

Most of the Westerns published in the all-fiction magazines of the first half of the twentieth century were written by authors more familiar with the streets of New York than the cattle trails of Texas. Hubbard bucked the trend, and in the process changed the face of the Western adventure. He grew up in a time and a place where the Old West, though fading, still lived. His unique knowledge of the frontier, of its ways and its people, made him an authentic voice of this unique American experience.

Also includes the Western adventure Blood on His Spurs, in which two men have to find a way to end their feud . . . or pay a high price in blood and money.

 “The sound effects are so spot on that at times during the gunfights you’ll be dodging bullets, and on the trail rides you’ll be dusting off the trail dust.” —Yahoo Voices

Synopsis:

Wrangle with some of the finest renegades. Gunslinger Mart Kincaid is blackmailed into working for Gar Malone, the reputed King of Concha Basin. A greedy and ruthless taskmaster, Malone practices a cruel owner's philosophy—land is for those who can take it and keep it. He quickly puts Kincaid's gun hand to use, threatening locals with death unless they pack up and vacate their homes and land.

When Malone's craving turns to the Singing Canyon spread, the jewel of the basin, Kincaid finally decides that he's had enough of Malone and his wicked ways. Willing to pay the ultimate price if necessary, Kincaid must square his shoulders and take his stand against Malone . . . and an entire band of hired killers. ALSO INCLUDES THE WESTERN STORY "BLOOD ON HIS SPURS"

"Heart-racing plot charges at the speed of thrumming horses' hooves."  — Library Journal

About the Author

With 19 New York Times bestsellers and more than 230 million copies of his works in circulation, L. Ron Hubbard is among the most acclaimed and widely read authors of our time.
