In his towering Last Gunfighter series, USA Today bestseller William Johnstone chronicles a frontier legend—a drifter, a fighter and a man you only want on your side…

Before It Was The City Of Angels, It Was A Perfect Place To Die With The Devil

When Frank Morgan gets to a town called Los Angeles, he can see the forces gathering around him. For the Spanish landowners, wealth is measured in cattle on the open range. For hardnosed oilmen, a fortune is in the ground—in the form of shining black crude oil…When blood is spilled on the sun-seared land, Morgan allies himself with a beautiful, widowed rancher—even as he cuts a deal with an ambitious wildcatter. Morgan is not trying out treachery. He’s just trying to get to the truth about a cycle of violence that’s about to explode. But when he discovers that a third party has entered the fray, Morgan knows the rules have changed and justice will only be forged with bullets.

About J.A. Johnstone:

Being the all around assistant, typist, researcher, and fact checker to one of the most popular western authors of all time, J.A. Johnstone learned from the master, Uncle William W. Johnstone.

Bill, as he preferred to be called, began tutoring J.A. at an early age. After-school hours were often spent retyping manuscripts or researching his massive American Western History library as well as the more modern wars and conflicts. J.A. worked hard—and learned.

“Every day with Bill was an adventure story in itself. Bill taught me all he could about the art of storytelling and creating believable characters. ‘Keep the historical facts accurate,’ he would say. ‘Remember the readers, and as your grandfather once told me, I am telling you now: be the best J.A. Johnstone you can be.’”

About William W. Johnstone:

Just to give you a brief rundown on who William W. Johnstone is, here are the basic facts. He was born in Southern Missouri, the youngest of four kids. His father was a minister and his mother was a schoolteacher.

He quit school when he was fifteen and joined a carnival after getting kicked out of the FFL (for being underage), but he went back and finished high school in 1957. After that he worked as a deputy sheriff, did a hitch in the army, came back and went into radio broadcasting, where he worked for sixteen years.

Johnstone started writing in 1970, but he didn't get published until late 1979. He has written almost a hundred books including the best-selling Ashes series and the Mountain Man series. He began writing full-time in the early 1980s and hasn't stopped since. His first published book was THE DEVIL'S KISS and his favorite, so far, is THE LAST OF THE DOG TEAM.

The best of the best (Sunday, February 22, 2009)
Reviewer: David Auman

I just bought the book slaughter The Last Gunfighter Westerns by William Johnstone. These are the only Westerns I will read. Why? Because they get right to the action not like some were they will talk about the rolling hills they are in for a chapter, which is boring. I'm just finishing up a book by Johnstone called Savage Territory-great book. Love it. Can't wait to finish so I can start the latest book about the Last Gunfighter Frank Morgan. I love Frank Morgan.

I'M A FAN OF WILLIAM JOHNSTONE FOR EVER and I have turned on others to Johnstones great work.
