About the Author:

L. D. Henry was born in Akron, Ohio and had a varied career as a professional boxer, an artist, and a writer. As an aviation engineer, he helped construct airfields in England, France, Belgium, Holland, Japan, and Korea. Mr. Henry has published numerous short stories and two novels.

From Booklist:

Hellhole, officially known as the Yuma Territorial Prison, is what passed in the Old West as a correctional facility. Henry makes the most of the setting in this combination western and prison drama. When convicts escape Hellhole, the government employs the local Quechan Indians to track them down. Two of the best trackers around, Honas Good and his father-in-law, Palma, are known and feared by the prison population. When five vicious prisoners escape and come upon the defenseless spouses of Honas and Palma, brutal carnage results. A local judge with a grudge against Indian women gives the perpetrators a slap on the wrist by adding a couple of years to their sentences. The Indian widowers, disgusted with white justice, set about extracting their own vengeance, which means breaking into Hellhole and making sure everything appears accidental. This is a violent, occasionally graphic novel of revenge in which no one aspires to a higher moral plane. The prisoners are cruel; Honas and Palma are their equals. Social redeemability aside, however, the story is an exciting, fast-paced western from a stylish craftsman. Wes Lukowsky
