Known to the Mexicans as El Cougar, the deadliest gunfighter on the border has a score to settle…
Ringo Smith is an Apache raid survivor, working the land with his kid brother, Nick.
He carries the tools of his trade with pride, a low slung, tied down rig that bolsters a piece of the master gunsmith profession.
This Colt 45, with its butt inlaid with green jade, worth a small fortune, brings Smith luck wherever he goes.
But it would seem that luck finally runs out when Nick is found shot dead in cold blood.
There are no clues surrounding his death except for a note – Guns San Lucia Reservation.
Could this be the lead to Nick’s killer that Ringo has been looking for?
Ringo sets off to the San Lucia reservation with vengeance in mind and soon finds himself tangled up in much, much more.
At the San Lucia Reservation, the Apache, once a proud tribe, are reduced to nothing.
They are being cheated out of their cattle rations and they are slowly starving to death.
Trouble is brewing and it’s only a matter of time before they start to rebel.
Has El Cougar finally bitten off more than he can chew?
With friends new and old, Ringo seeks his brother’s killer while uncovering a much bigger plot…
Hidden Guns is an exhilarating and complex Western tale filled with everything you would except from a classic Louis L’Amour – cowboys, Indians, gun-slinging action and mystery.
