Hate Thy Neighbors

Written by W.W.Johnstone

They risked their lives to make a home in the heart of West Texas. Now the Kerrigan family must face the deadliest challenges of the land they love—and the evil that men do.


After a two-year drought, the Kerrigan ranch is dry as a bone and as dusty as a honky-tonk bible. On the brink of ruin, Kate Kerrigan hires the rainmaker Professor Somerset Lazarus, who promises salvation—in the form of a deluge. Kate is desperate enough to try anything. But when four angry gunmen show up, ready to lynch the phony rainmaker for swindling them out of their money, the Kerrigans have to choose sides fast—before the bullets start to fly. It doesn’t take a divining rod to figure out that these unsatisfied customers want more than a refund. They have their sites set on the Kerrigan ranch. And it’s just a matter of time until it’s raining water or raining bullets. Either way, there will be blood . . .

To Hell and Beyond

Written by Mark Henry

It's been thirty years since they battled through a war-torn frontier. Now they'll ride together once again--and the bullets will fly . . .


During the bloody Apache Wars, Trap O'Shannon, Clay Madsen, Ky Roman, and a few others distinguished themselves with uncommon valor in the brutal Geronimo Campaign. Known as the Scout Trackers, this fearsome bunch of battle-hardened warriors rode hard, shot straight and plenty, and took chances no one else was willing to take. But times have changed and the brotherhood is scattered here and there in a changing land--until the past comes rolling back with a vengeance.


Reunited, the gang is ready to ride hard from Montana all the way to the Arizona Territory to enforce their fearless brand of justice. Killers of every stripe will stand in their way, but that only means Trap and his men will fight that much harder to bury every last one of them . . .

Here together for the first time are Mark Henry's explosive Western epics that show the brutal, gut-punching American West in all its violent glory.
