Johnstone Country. The Good Die Young. The Bad Die Younger.
When Smoke Jensen is summoned to a small Texas town under siege by a scourge of kill-crazy bandits, he finds himself outmanned and outgunned. Being Smoke Jensen, he wouldn’t have it any other way.
A gunshot wound has robbed Tywappity, Texas, of its top lawman at the worst possible time. Enos Crabtree and his band of outlaws have hatched a scheme to plunder the town bank of a small fortune in railroad money. When the acting sheriff, Dalton Conyers—half-brother of Smoke’s niece Rebecca—is unable to raise a posse to hunt down Crabtree’s gang, he calls on Smoke for help.
But with so much cash at stake, Crabtree won’t go down without a fight. And with a nothing-to-lose army of gut-shooting recruits at his command, he can keep the blood flowing faster than the waters of the Rio Grande.
