Publisher's Summary

A blazing new series takes you back to the lawless frontier, where every stagecoach was a moving target. Where every passenger needed protection. And where every hired gun who rides along better be fast on the draw - or be dead on arrival....   

If anyone knows the road to purgatory, it's Red Ryan. As a stagecoach guard, he's faced holdups, ambushes, and all-out attacks from every kill-crazy outlaw, Indian, and prairie rat. But even he's a bit reluctant to take on his next job: riding shotgun with his driver Buttons Muldoon on a stage bound from Fort Concho, Texas, to Fort Bliss.   

Word has it, the Apaches are on the warpath. They're being led by the vicious war chief Ilesh, which means "Lord of the Earth". And this lord means business, as in slaughtering every Texan from here to El Paso. Red wants to postpone the stage. But an army major's beautiful but stubborn wife insists they leave - or she'll go it alone. So Red has no choice....

Thus begins a nightmare journey into 400 miles of harsh, unforgiving terrain, blood-drunk killers, and one scheming devil who plans to paint the town of El Paso red - starting with Red's blood....

Needs different narrator

This the second time with this narrator
He would be ok if he was playing one part but his soft drawl seems the same for all the characters

Boring

Way to much palavering. Like sitting in a bus station, waiting for a bus that never comes while some stranger jaws your ears off.

Well written,well read story from start to finish!

Following Red Ryan and Buttons through this action-packed adventure made me eager to find the second book in the series. The story moved rapidly from one scene to the next, and the narrator made the characters come alive.

Another Awesome William w Johnstone Book

I Loved this book it's a first in a series and I'm looking for the next book to be released whenever that time is I don't know. I'll most definitely be checking Amazon for the latest books from my favorite Author Y'alls
