Backed to the Wall: A Tucker Ashley Western Adventure

Backed to the Wall: A Tucker Ashley Western Adventure
Wendelboe, C. M.

"Outlaws--fueled by cruelty they became addicted to during the War Between the States--roam and prey upon anyone unfortunate enough to cross their trail. In the Dakota Territory of the 1870s, the line between outlaw and lawman is often blurred. Some of those sworn to protect the helpless might exploit them instead. And some of those deemed hard cases might redeem themselves. Backed to the Wall plunges both a lawman and an outlaw into a blood battle that only one of them can survive--if the Indian raiders terrorizing homesteaders and cattlemen don't kill them first"--Amazon.com.

Men of Violence

Men of Violence
Brooks, Bill, 1943-

"John Henry Cole had worked for years as a lawman and then as a detective for an agency out of Cheyenne, Wyoming. It was this work that he enjoyed, despite its dangers, that had inspired him to establish his own agency. He gathered ex-lawmen like himself, men he knew and trusted, most of whom he had worked with at one time or another. Cole's agency was located in just about the most dangerous place one could find--in Red Pony, in the Cherokee Strip, commonly called No Man's Land because of the rampant outlawry. But, Cole had figured, what better place to hunt for outlaws for the money on their heads? His agency might consist in practice of bounty hunters, but the agency men were in themselves honorable and professional. It was this group that set out to capture the notorious Sam Starr and his outlaw gang" --from publisher's web site.
