New Mexico Territory 1880
The bloodletting of the Lincoln County War is over but the range is crawling with gangs of surviving gunmen whose only remaining purpose is to steal and kill. Add to that Geronimo and his warriors on the loose and together it builds into a volatile situation.
When the newly appointed marshal, Pat Garrett runs into ex-lawman Jack Slade, Slade is down on his luck. But Garrett recognizes a mean man with a gun when he sees one and that’s just the sort he needs to help clean up the Rio Ruidoso country.
Garrett’s offer is his chance to even things up with himself.
Soon he’s on the trail of a special prosecutor and his young son who’ve gone missing. But it looks like there’s a lot more to their suspicious absence than at first appears.
Against the background of Pat Garrett’s hunt for bad boys Charlie Bowdre and William Bonney, Slade delves deep into the underbelly of Lincoln’s criminal activities whilst struggling to reassert himself not only as a lawman but also into the good graces of pretty widow Jane Lowry.
There’s another explosion of violence due in Lincoln County as Jack Slade drags himself back from the brink of despair and rediscovers the power of the pistol and the pride of a lawman’s star.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Tony Masero is an internationally known Illustrator, who is best known for the Western covers he created. Of the many series he worked on he is particularly known for the two best selling and long running Western series for George G Gilman's Edge and Steele characters, where he painted most of the covers for the European market. Tony originally trained as a Graphic Designer in London and worked in the design field before taking up Illustration. After a successful career in Illustration he turned to writing and now often uses his earlier skills to create the design and artwork for his own book jackets. During a long career his artwork has fronted many popular books in different genres but his love of Westerns arose out of the research necessary to complete his artwork and in the same way he often creates his novels around some elements of historical fact. Tony has two sons and a daughter and now lives with his wife, Diana in Portugal.
