VALLEY OF THE LESSER EVIL
At the end of a deadly trail lurks an unspeakable secret.
Itinerant marshal Josiah Hawke is called in to investigate the murder of an old friend and lawman in a town that’s suddenly and inexplicably been overrun by thugs and goons. As he gets closer to the truth, the outlaw gang draws on seemingly unlimited resources to up the ante, and Hawke faces a series of increasingly determined and deadly adversaries who want him dead.
CANYON OF THE LONG SHADOWS
A final showdown between good and evil looms in a hidden world of deception and depravity.
Josiah Hawke and Tom Carmody are called back into action to track down the daughter of a prominent Texas judge. She’s among a stagecoach full of passengers kidnapped during a robbery and secreted in a virtually inaccessible outlaw hideout deep in a canyon that is thought to harbor such evil that even the Comanches and Apaches shun it.
RAGE UNDER THE RED SKY
Nature’s fury and a gang leader’s white-hot lust for revenge combine to threaten the lives – and the friendship – of a frontier marshal and his deputy.
When Marshal Josiah Hawke kills a man who ambushes him in a bizarre and unprovoked attack, he unwitting triggers a cascade of events that lead to a final confrontation with the most feared gunfighter in the West.
BLOOD BENEATH THE HUNTER’S MOON
The frontier version of organized crime is moving in on Shadow Valley, and they want Marshal Josiah Hawke out of the way.
Brazenly gunning down a marshal, even in Hawke’s lawless neck of the woods, will attract too much attention – so the syndicate’s minions goad the middle-aged marshal, a former bare-knuckle boxer, into a fight with a young contender intent on beating Hawke to death.
