THE GREATEST WESTERN WRITERS OF THE 21ST CENTURY From national bestselling authors William Johnstone and J.A. Johnstone comes the epic tale of Hangtree County, Texas, where a gunslinger and a lawman work to bring peace to the most dangerous town in the west . . . TO SAVE A KILLER, A GUNMAN BLASTS HIS WAY ACROSS TEXAS On the trail to Hangtree, a gang of bandits give chase to a teenage gunslinger. Young Bill is bracing for the end when the crack of a Winchester scatters the bandits. Sam Heller, Hangtree lawman, has saved another life. And Bill will beg Heller to save one more . . . Bill rode in from East Texas, where Cullen Baker, the original quick-draw artist, fights a life-and-death battle with a corrupt robber baron for control of the Torrent River. Bill came seeking help from Cullen's old pal, Johnny Cross, who agrees to ride east to lend a bullet or two. It's a long way to go for justice, requiring a trek across a desert held by brutal outlaws just waiting to kill under a merciless sun. But with Sam Heller at Cross's side, the odds are better. And when the ammo's loaded and the triggers are cocked for an all-out gun battle, the Torrent will flow red--with blood . . .

Being the all-around assistant, typist, researcher, and fact checker to one of the most popular western authors of all time, J.A. Johnstone learned from the master, Uncle William W. Johnstone. He 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 conflicts. 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, I am telling you now: be the best J.A. Johnstone you can be.'"
