NEW Trade Paperbacks: Hombre, The Switch and The Moonshine War

Share

On Sale, August 21.

Hombre

John Russell was raised as an Apache, and even served as a member of the tribal police. Now the time has come for him to leave the San Carlos reservation far behind and live again as a white man. The stagecoach passengers he’s traveling with want nothing to do with this man they call “Hombre,” forcing him to ride in the boot with the driver. But they change their tune when outlaws ride down on them. Suddenly they all must rely on Russell’s guns and his ability to survive in the desert. They shunned John Russell, and now they must follow him . . . or die.

The Moonshine War

Prohibition is a big headache for some . . . and a big payday for others, the fearless entrepreneurs with little respect for the law of the land. With $125,000 worth of Kentucky’s finest homemade whiskey in his possession, big, hell-raising Son Martin counts himself among the latter. Son knows having this much illegal hooch makes him a very tasty target, but nobody’s going to steal it from him. Ware may be coming to his backyard, but Son’s not worried. Because when it comes to fighting, shooting, and keeping one step ahead of the Big Boys, he’s more than good—he’s bad . . . and dangerous . . . and deadly.

The Switch

Ordell Robbie and Louis Gara hit it off in prison, where they were both doing time for grand theft auto. Now that they’re out, they’re joining forces for one big score. The plan is to kidnap the wife of a wealthy Detroit developer and hold her for ransom. Looks good until they learn the lowlife husband doesn’t want his wife back. So it’s time for Plan B and the opportunity to make a real killing—with the unlikely help of a beautiful, ticked-off housewife who’s hungry for a large helping of sweet revenge.
