Acclaimed western writer Giles Tippette takes the action south of the border, where blood is thicker than water no matter how many bullets are fired . . .
Running the Half-Moon ranch is all the excitement Justa Williams needs in his life. But when his brother Norris looks into a squatter situation near the Mexican border and lands in a Monterrey jail for his troubles, Justa rides out to get his kin released. When the usual channels get rebuffed, Justa enlists the aid of a dozen kill-crazy banditos to get the matter resolved the old-fashioned way.
Now there’s just a hundred miles of Mexican desert to cross before they can reach the Texas border. Hopefully they’ve got enough bullets left to get them there . . .
