Son of a Preacher. Master of the gun. A deadly enemy.John Wesley Hardin's powderkeg temper earned him twelve bodies by age twenty, and a place at the top of the Texas most-wanted list. But now he's a husband and a father, and thinks his fighting days are done--until he's ambushed by an angry loser in a local poker game.Soon the law is on Wes' trail again, but this time he's got too much at stake. Hardin only wants peace--but he's willing to wage a one-man war to stay free.
From the cover: From the Rio Grande to Abilene, across teh blood-soaked range, to the sprawling cattle town streets, John Wesley Hardin was a haunted man, and the law would not let him hang up his guns.
But his blazing Colts carried one message to any lawman, bounty hunter, or raw kid looking to make a reputation: "If you're coming to kill, be ready to die!"
