A captured outlaw gets caught up in a bloody range war in this thrilling tale of the Old West from a Levi Strauss Golden Saddleman Award–winning author.
Lawbreaker Webb Cousins is headed for a short trial and a long stretch in jail. A bounty hunter has him cuffed and covered, with no chance of escape. But when the prisoner and his captor ride into the town of Wagon Mound, death rides with them.
In a flash of rifle fire and a spray of blood, Cousins finds himself shackled to a dead man—and unwittingly caught up in a murderous range war he wants nothing to do with. To ride away a free man will take more than breaking his bonds. He’ll have to wage a one-man battle against two bitter enemies locked in a vicious cycle of vengeance and cruelty.
It will take every ounce of cunning, a double shot of courage, and a long, dark ride into hell for Cousins to finally break free.
Luke Short, along with such legendary authors as Zane Grey and Louis L’Amour, helped transform the stories of the American West from dime-store pulp into an immensely popular literary genre. Marauders’ Moon is one of his grittiest and most suspenseful stories of western adventure.
