Morgan Kane: Texas Ranger, unmatched gunslinger, cool poker hand, and hot-blooded lover of women. At the tender age of 16, he avenged the murders of his parents. Ever since, he's lived by one code: kill or be killed.
Kane is unpredictable, impulsive, and reckless, but Major Monroe of the Rangers puts up with his drinking, his violence, and his erratic work ethic - because his skills as a gunman outweigh his vices.
Without Mercy begins with a poker game. Kane is a born gambler: he can't resist a big pot. Con men lure him into a trap, using a ravishing seductress, Allison MacKay, as the bait. Her beauty proves too tempting. Kane falls into her clutches.
He's shot, thrown from a train, and left for dead. Big mistake. As Kane himself said, "When you shoot a man, you better make sure he's dead."
A star-shaped scar will forever mark his right hand, a scar to match the Ranger’s star he carries. But that's Kane's gun hand. The gun hand of a Ranger is the difference between life and death — are you faster than the man shooting at you?
The stakes are high this time.
Kane is gambling with his life.
Can he survive?
