Johnstone Justice. What America Needs Now.

From the bestselling chroniclers of the American West comes a riveting new chapter in the epic Buckhorn saga—the legendary adventures of a young gun-for-hire with Indian blood, a lightning-fast trigger, and his own special brand of justice . . .

When a wealthy cattle baroness hires Joe Buckhorn to track down her son, it sounds like easy money. But when he learns that the boy has run off with a girl—whose father is the leader of the cattle-rustling Riley clan—Buckhorn’s only hope is to infiltrate the gang. Gain their trust. Live the outlaw life, even at the risk of death. There’s just one problem: there’s more than one gang. The Riley girl may have stolen a runaway boy’s heart but the other gangs are stealing the baroness’s cattle. Which puts Buckhorn in the middle of a violent, bloodsoaked range war. If he chooses the wrong side, he’s as good as dead…but if he follows his gut and lives, there’s going to be the darkest kind of hell to pay . . .

Live Free. Read Hard.

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.
