Famed for The Last Gunfighter
and Mountain Man
sagas, master storyteller William W. Johnston joins forces with J.A. Johnstone to let loose a pair of the most unforgettable, trouble-prone, hard-fighting cowboys the West has ever known—who are about to step in the biggest hornet’s nest in Colorado Territory…A Good Name—For A Very Bad Town
Bo Creel and Scratch Morton have a lot of experience with the law: they’ve been breaking it most of their lives. But now the drifters are down to their last dime, and they accept the best job they can get in a boomtown called Mankiller. Their boss is a drunken sheriff named Biscuits O’Brien. Their tin stars are mighty pretty. And they start to take their new job seriously—until they’re standing between a cunning clan of killers and the town’s cowering citizens—with the killers outnumbering the cowerers. The only hope for a besieged town, Bo and Scratch now have a chance to become real heroes—that is, if they don’t get their heads blown off the minute they stick their snoots out of the door.
