New Cuno Massey Tale!

CUNO MASSEY AND SPURR MORGAN TEAM UP AGAIN...

Cuno Massey has been cooling his heels in the little northern New Mexico town of Nopal, trying to give up his gunslinging ways and return to freighting.

But a large gang of cutthroats who call themselves “the Boys” led by the savage killer Cecil Craig run Cuno’s freight wagon off the road and into a canyon, killing his mules and setting the young freighter afoot.

That’s only the start of the desperadoes’ depredations.

They take over Nopal intending to settle up for past grievances by raping all the women and killing all the men before burning the town to the ground.

Their first mistake, however, was not making sure the beefy young freight wagon driver was dead. Because that was not just any young freighter.

Cuno Massey straps on his .45 and takes on the gang...with a little help from some lovely, Winchester-wielding ladies and an old friend...


Excerpt:


Cuno fired at a jostling shadow. The outlaw cursed, dropped, tried to heave himself to his feet. Cuno fired, watched in satisfaction as the outlaw went flying backwards and twisting around before landing on his belly.
“Stop!” he cried. “You’ve killed me!”
Cuno walked up to the man, who turned his head to glare up at him, eyes flashing hatefully.
“Not quite.” Cuno drilled a round between his eyes. “There. Now, I killed you.”

REVENGER SERIES NOW AVAILABLE!

The first three books in a brand-new, wild-assed western series are now available at

and 



The fourth book--SAVAGE BARRANCA--will be along soon!

FROM THE CELEBRATED AUTHOR OF THE YAKIMA HENRY NOVELS COMES A BRAND NEW WESTERN ADVENTURE SERIES...

Mike Sartain, the Revenger, grew up in the French Quarter of New Orleans where he was taught how to fight by some of the toughest, meanest SOBs in any port. 

He was taught how to love by some of the most beautiful women in the world.

When the War Between the States broke out, the young Cajun lied about his age to join the Confederacy. At war’s end, he came west and joined the frontier cavalry. Wounded by Apaches in Arizona, he was nursed back to health by a gnarly old prospector and his beautiful daughter, Jewel.

When the prospector and Jewel were viciously murdered by marauding Yankee bluecoats, Sartain hunted the soldiers down and killed them one by one in his own fierce Cajun style. Killing the prospector had been bad enough. Killing Jewel had been far worse, for the young beauty had been carrying Sartain’s unborn child.

That’s how Mike Sartain’s lust for revenge got started. That’s how he became a wanted man, with a dead-or-alive price on his head.

Now, with no choice but to keep on riding, the Revenger rides for anyone who has a justifiable ax to grind...
