Now in one volume, the first two books of Bill Brooks’s The Journey of Jim Glass trilogy.

RIDES A STRANGER

Coffin Flats, New Mexico, is a nothing town in the middle of nowhere—which suits Jim Glass just fine. Looking for any job, he’s courted by the local brothel owner—because Jim is good with his fists as well as his gun—but instead he is hired by Marshal Chalk Bronson. A hothead named Johnny Waco is threatening to burn Coffin Flats down if his runaway wife isn’t returned to him. Now Glass has a plan that could make things right or pull the drifter into a world of killers and heartbreak...and toward a destiny full of dying.

A BULLET FOR BILLY

Captain Gus Rodgers of the Texas Rangers is dying—and before he goes, he needs Jim’s help to free his grandson from a Mexican prison. Trouble is, the Federale general holding him wants the head of the boy’s brother, Billy, who has already confessed to murdering the general’s daughter. Gus believes Billy deserves to die. The old ranger is just worried he won’t live long enough to do the deed—which is where Jim Glass comes in.

From the Back Cover:

Coffin Flats, New Mexico, is a nothing town in the middle of nowhere—which suits Jim Glass just fine. Looking for any job, he's courted by the local brothel owner—because Jim is good with his fists as well as his gun—but instead he is hired by Marshal Chalk Bronson.

A hothead named Johnny Waco is threatening to burn Coffin Flats down if his runaway wife's not returned to him—a lady who loved Marshal Bronson until fate and war separated them. Now Glass has a plan that could make things right . . . or far worse than they are already—the worst kind of scheme that could pull the drifter into a world of killers and heartbreak . . . and toward a destiny full of dying.
