Gunman Notorious

Last chance saloon…

After years spent as the most notorious gunman in Kansas, Max Kane was hoping to finally hang up his gun and retire peacefully with his wife Aggie and their two small children.

Yet leaving such a reputation behind is easier said than done.

So when Max makes the acquaintance of U.S Deputy Hank Chase and is offered another way out, he jumps at the chance.

But this might just be his most dangerous challenge yet…

The job?

Get in with the legendary Cantrip gang and save Hannah Bell, daughter of the millionaire Hiram Bell, who has recently been kidnapped and held ransom by Cantrip for a cool $250,000.

With such high stakes, it would seem that Kane is the only man with half a chance of pulling off such a perilous task.

First he has to find the gang, which is no mean feat. But how better to find a criminal than with another criminal by your side, and Derry Naylor is just the one he needs.

Running the town of Clear Spring with Naylor, however, is Elt Parry – a mean spirited youth trying to establish his own reputation. Taking down someone as notorious as Kane would secure his name, making him a troubling addition to Kane’s worries.

Kane now has to deal with Parry’s thorny presence as well as Cantrip’s hostile gang, whose canyon hideout he quickly discovers.

Matters are further complicated and the stakes are raised to dangerously new heights when the mission becomes personal for Kane…

Can he hold out long enough for the back-up posse to arrive or will he have to take matters into his own hands?

With tension on a knife edge and colt guns abound, this high-spirited romp from legendary Western writer Chuck Mason will not disappoint.
