Texas is a lawless state, a land in ruins…
The civil war has reached its bloody conclusion, and Jabe Lomax – a Lieutenant in the Confederate Army – has returned home.
During the long years of the war he had often dreamed of returning, of settling down to a life that would never again know violence, bloodshed or the constant fear of death.
But nothing could prepare him for what awaits on his return.
As he rides into Texas, he finds his ranch stripped of cattle, his parents brutally murdered, and his sister under the protection of a stranger.
The war had wrecked many of his dreams, but his violent homecoming had shattered his last remaining shard of hope.
There is hell along the Mexican border, and no one is safe.
Deserters from the army, bandits and riff-raff from the Union are causing a reign of terror, and lawmakers and civilians alike are powerless to stop them.
It soon becomes clear that there is a bounty on Lomax’s head, and everyone is out for his blood.
But in a lawless land, who can he trust?
When it becomes clear that the corrupt law enforcement are behind the savage killings and robberies, Lomax must find out who is on his side.
Only then can he find a way of avenging the deaths of his parents, and countless others who have perished under this reign of terror…
Border Fury is a classic wild west adventure, set during the bloody aftermath of the brutal Civil War.
