Beschreibung des Verlags
Hell Bound is a story of redemption.
When the notorious faro dealer, Peyton Bonner, wins a Fort Worth hotel in a Denver poker game, he returns to Texas to claim his ownership. After being shot at the train station, he is forced to face the demons of his past.
Peyton Bonner has become a mythological legend that was manufactured by the pulp writers and newspapers when he refused interviews or photographs. With each man he killed defending himself at his faro tables, they continued to replay their made-up conjectures to the point that it was deemed the "absolute truth."
Now, tired of the rat-hole hotels, near starvation in the Dakotas, and having faced death from a ravaging fever in Leadville, Peyton wants out of the perilous life as a frontier gambler.
But, can he?
5-star review By Trudi LoPreto for Readers' Favorite Reviews
Hell Bound by G.R. Williamson has all the makings for a perfect Western adventure story. I was taken back to the late 1800s to meet Peyton, Sarah, Marie, Doc Thomas, and brothers, Homer and Shawn; and what would a good Western be without the bad guys, Gussie Albright and his crew. I found it impossible to put the book down because I just had to find out if Peyton lives or gets shot; what happens to Sarah and Marie, and will there be justice served on Gussie? If you are a fan of the Western genre, Hell Bound will not disappoint! I really enjoyed this book – it would make a wonderful TV movie. Don't pass up Hell Bound; it is a riveting Western winner.

Western Writers of America Review
G.R. Williamson has certainly given life to a great Western character in the mysterious traveling gambler, Peyton Bonner. The book is an excellent read… I believe the author has penned one of the finest opening scenes that I have ever read in a book.
