About the Book

John Lee Johnson has a way of getting things done—but now he needs to get things done on his own 50,000-acre ranch in Texas. Two gangs of rustlers have been slowly draining the cattle from his herd, and that could spell the end of his livelihood.

He begins the journey from Ohio back to Texas outfitted with military holsters around his waist holding Navy Colts and two more stuck in his belt. He knows how to use them and use them well. Before he can complete the trip, however, the Union government asks him to arrest two outlaws hiding in the badlands of the nation.

But Johnson faces more challenges. Marilla Urmacher, widow of an outland brigand called Indian Melvin, concocts a scheme to destroy Johnson. She plans to lead the big Texan and his federal deputies into an abandoned town, where she has two gangs ready to take them all down. Even worse, Marilla has also hired two of the best gunslingers in the Southwest and set them waiting at his ranch, ready and eager to send the big man to the Promised Land.
