From Dusty Richards, winner of the 2007 Spur Award for The Horse Creek Incident, comes a brand-new series about a former Texas Ranger out to enforce the law, no matter where he goes…
When the Texas Legislature decided to stop paying its rangers, Phil Guthrey knew it was time to move on to greener pastures. As he rides into Arizona Territory, he finds a slew of criminals running free—thanks to Crook County’s no-good sheriff. With reports of rape, arson, theft, fatal shootouts, and foul play, Guthrey decides to make it his mission to rehabilitate Crook County, not to mention capture the heart of the spunky Cally Bridges.
As Guthrey sets out to bring to justice the men terrorizing his new home, he knows he must ultimately find a way to uproot Sheriff Killion if he wants to clean up the county for good. The fight will be long and hard, but for a former Texas Ranger like Guthrey, getting your hands dirty is just part of the job…
