Lester Dukes, the Governor of Texas, felt that the time had come to expand his group of Enforcers—the go-anywhere, fight-anyone squad that maintained law and order in the Lone Star State. So he handed the chore to his two best men, Yancey Bannerman and Johnny Cato. They came up with Ironsite, a center where new Enforcers could be trained, and then set about recruiting the best of the best from the Texas Rangers.
But then Yancey and Cato found themselves caught up in a race against time.
A fanatic named Sam Burdin was fixing to invade the town of Van Horn with his twenty-strong army of so-called ‘Texas Freedom Fighters’, and they planned to give Governor Dukes a bullet-welcome when he came to take part in the Texas Independence Day celebrations.
Burdin said he was a patriot, a man who only had the welfare of Texas at heart. But the truth was very different. Burdin was a psychotic killer, and a mass-murderer in the making. And all that stood between him and total anarchy were … the Enforcers.
