Publisher's Summary

Two outlaw brothers have been leaving a blood-trail on their way to infamy on the western frontier. Until bounty hunter Luke Jensen catches one of the black-hearted Kroll brothers away from his gang. But while Luke is trying to get Mordecai Kroll from jail to justice, he's ambushed by the Kroll gang and taken prisoner. And that draws Luke's own brother, Smoke Jensen, into the fight, guns drawn....

Brothers by blood. Brothers by battle.

With Smoke Jensen comes fire - adopted son Matt and lifelong friend Preacher, who storm into battle to save Luke Jensen from the Krolls. With trigger-happy back-stabbers, cutthroat outriders, and murdering devils joining the fray, the deadly mayhem paints the harsh landscape an unforgiving red - a place where Jensen's enemies go to die....

NOT MR. JOHNSTONE'S BEST WORK

I'm a huge fan of the Jensens. I've read Mr. Johnstone's work for the past 15 or twenty years. Never have I seen them, ( The Jensens) all of them get beat up and manhandled as much as in this book. Smoke is a Shootist. One of the most exciting I have had the pleasure to read about and follow his exploits. Preacher has no peer, He's just Preacher, no nonsense, loves Smoke and the High Lonesome. Matt is like a grandson to him. Matt is the upstart, making his rep. The best part of this selection was, that Luke is now, reintroduced in the family.
Nobody beats smoke in a gunfight. There was not enough that. Preacher's intro was better. As I said Preacher is just Preacher. Not enough action. And the Jensens do not get manhandled.
Just my opinion

Great read

very good read. The Smoke Jenson books keep you interested clear through. The action starts right off and stays clear to last chapter.
