9780786028979: Killing Ground (The Last Gunfighter)

A lawman, a drifter, a legend—Frank Morgan returns to the town he once called home and ends up in the middle of a killing ground. . .

Lethal Or Legal


The Lucky Lizard is bad luck. Not that the Nevada mine is empty; it's full of silver. But the man who thinks he owns it fair and square is in for a very unpleasant surprise—a ruthless, hard driving Easterner named Dex Brighton shows up with a seemingly valid claim. Town marshal Frank Morgan has his suspicions, and sends for some San Francisco legal eagles. They don't make it to Buckskin alive. . . Now, Morgan realizes that Dex Brighton from back East is straight from Hell—with an army of stone-cold killers waiting in the hills. For the town of Buckskin, and the men and women caught in the wrong place at the wrong time, the battle now will be decided by lead, not law—with a final verdict written in blood. . .

About the Author:

William W. Johnstone is the USA Today and New York Times bestselling author of over 300 books, including Preacher, The Last Mountain Man, Luke Jensen Bounty Hunter, Flintlock, Savage Texas, Matt Jensen, The Last Mountain Man; The Family Jensen, Sidewinders, and Shawn O'Brien Town Tamer . His thrillers include Phoenix Rising, Home Invasion, The Blood of Patriots, The Bleeding Edge, and Suicide Mission. Visit his website at www.williamjohnstone.net or by email at dogcia2006@aol.com.

Being the all-around assistant, typist, researcher, and fact checker to one of the most popular western authors of all time, J.A. Johnstone learned from the master, Uncle William W. Johnstone.  

He began tutoring J.A. at an early age. After-school hours were often spent retyping manuscripts or researching his massive American Western history library as well as the more modern wars and conflicts. J.A. worked hard—and learned.

"Every day with Bill was an adventure story in itself. Bill taught me all he could about the art of storytelling. ‘Keep the historical facts accurate,' he would say. ‘Remember the readers, and as your grandfather once told me, I am telling you now: be the best J.A. Johnstone you can be.'"
