The Curse Of Fame

The trouble with being the fastest gun alive was having to prove it to all the trigger-happy gunmen who scoured the West itching for a challenge. Some who scoured the West itching for a challenge. Some traveled even further—Count Frederick von Hausen sailed across the Atlantic from Germany to hunt the most dangerous game of all-Smoke Jensen.

Gathering together a hunting party of the toughest, most ruthless hardcases in the West, von Hausen shadowed Smoke into Wyoming's high Rockies—the odds were worse than 50 to 1. But Smoke Jensen was the last mountain man, and he knew the country like the back of his hand.

As he thumbed back the hammer of his Colt .45, Smoke reflected that these doomed backtrailers couldn't have picked a prettier place to be buried.

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.
