There is no safety from Zaldivar's rage, and when Larrway stumbles upon a hidden valley settled by a sect of polygamous Americans, he finds not sanctuary but fresh danger.
Zaldivar knows of this strange colony named Janos, and has raided it again and again to feed the Mexican appetite for blonde womean. The settlers' last hope against Zaldivar's rapacious reach is Larrway's skill with a pistol, if he agrees to face off against the most feared gunfighter in the land, Ramon Zaldivar himself.
Set against a background of a Mexico on the brink of civil war, and revealing a little-known chapter of history in the lost colony of Janos, The Slavers combines authenticity with non-stop action and suspense. As richly hued as a Remington painting, it is a thrilling reading experience for fans of the Western novel.« less
