Inspired by the timeless westerns of John Wayne and the hardboiled heroes of classic crime fiction, bestselling legends Mickey Spillane and Max Allan Collins turn up the heat on their newest Caleb York thriller—in a gun-blazing showdown with two women ranchers calling the shots . . .
Sheriff Caleb York doesn’t regret taking out a drunken scoundrel with his blazing .44. But to York’s surprise, the dead man’s powerful mother, cattle baroness Victoria Drummond, barely bats an eye at the news. Instead, she asks York for a favor: help her convince Willa Cullen—the love of Caleb’s life—to sell the vast spread that Willa’s late father had carved out of the wilderness.
Willa, every bit as strong-willed as her rival, refuses to give up her land without a fight. York expects an ugly showdown, but before he can stop matters from escalating, the cattle queen sends an army of hired guns to Sugar Creek, the sole source of water available for Willa’s herd. Caught in the crossfire of a savage shoot-out between Willa’s cowboys and Victoria’s gunfighters, York will have to lay down the law—one bullet at a time—to stop an all-out war . . .
“A classic western . . . a six-gun-blasting winner from the first page to the last.”
