Wanted: Smoke Jensen Dead Or Alive

It didn't matter that the warrant was years old, or that Smoke Jensen had been cleared of all charges. A Texas bounty hunter named Bill Pike believed he could still collect a $10,000 reward for killing Jensen—and he intended to do just that. But when Pike and his men came calling, Jensen was nowhere to be found. So they took the next best thing—Smoke's woman—left behind a ransom note, and headed up into the Rocky Mountains.

Now, Smoke is going after a gang of vicious shootists. With time running out, and Sally's life hanging in the balance, he is returning to the high country where he came of age and built his legend. But this time, the mountain man won't come back down until he's stopped a bounty hunter bearing a worthless piece of paper and a mother lode of greed. It's kill or be killed, and Smoke Jensen intends to be the last man standing, no matter how many people—or guns—he has to face…

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.

Western junkie fix (Wednesday, June 28, 2006)
Reviewer: David

Once again, another Johnstone book there I very much enjoyed. With a very good mix of western comedy, suspense, and drama. One thing I like in particular about this book is how it fits so well in the story line reliving his past in the present for Smoke Jensen when a man who he wounded personally and killed his brother, comes back and steals away Smoke's beloved Sally. I also enjoyed the detail and how he (Johnstone) pulls you into the story while Smoke hunts down frantically, yet methodially, the men who have taken his lovely wife away and distributes six gun justice. Another extremely well done tale.
