Overview

Boggs is unparalleled in evoking the gritty reality of the Old West --The Shootist

Johnny D. Boggs is one of America's great Western writers--mixing adventure and realism with a torrid storytelling style all his own. In 1880's Arizona Territory, a good man goes bad--but for the best of all reasons. . .

He's Got One Chance To Live. . .And A Hundred Ways To Die

Deputy U.S. Marshal Reilly McGilvern is hauling criminals to Yuma when his prison wagon is attacked, and McGilvern is left locked inside to die. When another outlaw gang comes upon the scene, Reilly McGilvern thinks he's lived to see another day. . .but his problems are just beginning.

Bloody Jim Pardo wants to avenge the Civil War--and to steal the kind of weapons that will let him do it. Riding with his mother, his trusted killers and two hostages, Pardo thinks McGilvern is a fearsome criminal. Now, to stop Jim Pardo's bloody madness, McGilvern needs to play his part perfectly. And when the time comes, make every shot a killing shot. . .

"Johnny Boggs has produced another instant page-turner. . .don't put down the book until you finish it." --Tony Hillerman on Killstraight

"Boggs is among the best western writers at work today." --Booklist
