In a cutthroat border town, the Rio Kid must fight or die
After being run out of Arizona on a trumped-up murder charge, the Rio Kid spent three years in Mexico, learning how to shoot quicker than any man on the range. Now he’s headed home to clear his name. But before he reaches Arizona, the Kid will have to pass through the deadliest border region in the West. Nestled snugly in a bend of the Rio Grande, Hell’s Half Acre is a lawless outpost claimed by both Mexico and the United States, and belonging to neither. There, justice comes from the barrel of a six-gun, and the only sentence is death.
On the wall of the post office hangs a Wanted poster, offering $10,000 for the Rio Kid’s head. The picture is an old one, but one woman recognizes him: the tough-as-nails rancher Amanda Trigg. She promises to keep his secret, but only if he agrees to save her life. Facing down a gang of desperadoes, the Rio Kid has no choice but to use the deadly skills he developed south of the border.
Rio Kid Justice is the 2nd book in the Rio Kid Adventures, but you may enjoy reading the series in any order.
