The Law of A Fast GunPaperback - 2006
Haunted and changed forever by war, Mason Hawke attempts to build a peaceful new life for himself in Braggadocio, Nebraska, but a deadly encounter with two thugs in the local saloon brings Hawke to the attention of Clint Jessup, an unscrupulous and ruthless cattleman who is planning to destroy the town for his own greedy reasons. Original.
A man haunted and changed by war—whose fingers are equally skilled in the arts of music and death—Mason Hawke has found a new home in Braggadocio, Nebraska. But a dustup in the local saloon has forced his hand, and now two bodies lie lifeless on the dirty floor—a situation an unscrupulous cattleman plans to use to his advantage.
Like Hawke, Clint Jessup is running from his past. But Jessup's sins turned him hard and greedy—and he's willing to drain bone dry a town that's trying to build a future, if it puts an extra dollar in his pocket. The blood of a drifter named Mason Hawke is going to oil his money-making scheme. But it doesn't matter how many killers he sends Hawke's way, because the target plays by his own rules: draw first, shoot fast, and keep watching your back.
