Summary

Two wanted outlaws. One hell of a story. After a lifetime of robbing banks and holding up trains, Jimmy "Slash" Braddock and Melvin "Pecos Kid" Baker are ready to call it quits-though not completely by choice. Sold out by their old gang, Slash and Pecos have to bust out of jail and pull one last job to finance their early retirement . . . The target is a rancher's payroll train. Catch is- the train is carrying a Gatling gun and twenty deputy US marshals who know they're coming. Caught and quickly sentenced to hang, their old enemy-the wheelchair-bound, bucket of mean, Marshal L.C. Bledsoe-shows up at the last minute to spare their lives. For a price. He'll let them live if they hunt down their old gang, the Snake River Marauders. And kill those prairie rats-with extreme prejudice . . .

J.A. Johnstone learned to write from the master himself, Uncle William W. Johnstone, who 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 con?icts. 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. 'Keep the historical facts accurate,' he would say 'Remember the readers, and as your grandfather once told me, be the best Johnstone you can be." J.A. Johnstone has co-written numerous bestselling series with William W. Johnstone including The First Mountain Man, The Brothers O'Brien, and Preacher, The First Mountain Man.
