Publisher's summary

Red Ryan is one of the fastest guns in the West. But this time, he's in for the longest, hardest ride of his life. Where danger lurks around every turn - and all roads lead to hell....

700 Miles of Mayhem 

Gold. Silver. Cold hard cash. Stagecoach guard Red Ryan and his driver Buttons Muldoon have ridden shotgun on some pretty valuable cargo in their day. But they're about to learn - the hard way - that the most dangerous cargo of all is human. They've been hired to escort a cowardly traitor facing an army court martial in New Orleans. Every hired killer in Texas wants him dead, including gun-handy Hannah Huckabee, a woman with a mysterious past and an agenda of her own. But she's just one of the dangers they'll face along the way. There are cutthroat gangs bent on slaughtering anything on two legs. And 700 miles of the deadliest terrain Red Ryan has ever had to shoot his way out of....

Make this into a Movie!!!

I love Johnstone Westerns. I started out reading all the preacher books. I voided these red Ryan series because I didn’t know how interesting and Overland stage series would be. I found it to be highly entertaining, humorous, and interesting.

This was like 5 stories in one book

I enjoyed the first one in the series better than this one. It was almost as if whoever (never have believed J.A. is so prolific a writer) wrote this had a bunch of short stories to put together in one book. It wandered an awful lot from one bad guy to the next. Certain parts were of it was just too unbelievable to keep my interest, but overall it was good listen.

Story fine but

The Red Ryan series is my favorite of Johnstone’s but of his readers, this is my least favorite and it takes away from story enjoyment. Slow and boring, almost monotone.
