The Journey South

In a land with no law, there’s only two things a man can count on—a deadly sense of justice and an even deadlier ability to outdraw the most dangerous lead-spitting gunslingers.

Texas cowboy Cap Whitlatch has never shied away from hard work. Whether driving cattle or busting broncos, he gets the job done right. When he hires on with a ranch, he earns his pay with blood and sweat, keeping him honest. And when a friend is in dire need, Cap will move the tallest mountains to defend and protect them from harm.

Gil Vanderburg has known Cap since they were children. Now, Gil’s in jail for murder in a small settlement in the Oklahoma territories. To see justice served right and avoid a lynch mob, Cap volunteers to escort his friend to South Texas where he will stand trial for robbery. But they’re not quite traveling alone along the unhealthy trail in Indian territory. Three bloodthirsty Cherokee brothers want revenge on Gill for killing their sibling. A pair of vicious outlaws are after the gold in Cap’s saddlebags. And the U.S. marshal pursuing them all is determined to bring every lawbreaker in—dead or alive, and that includes these boys.

Cap is not about to let any man—no matter which side of the law he falls on—deter him from fulfilling his righteous mission. And he will show no mercy to anyone who tries.

The Broken Truth by Reavis Z. Wortham

The endless Texas landscape hides all manner of sins…

Special Agent Tucker Snow knows there’s big money roaming the fields under the wide Texas sky—and the cattle rustlers committing large-scale thefts on remote ranches know it, too. But when a prominent local rancher dies unexpectedly and his property is quietly sold to an unknown buyer, Tucker suspects there’s something more sinister going on in his jurisdiction than the usual steal-and-resell racket. Still raw after the tragic death of his wife and young daughter, the lawman can’t bear the thought of more innocent lives destroyed by people whose greed poisons everything around them.

Working alongside his brother, Harley, Tucker uncovers a dark ring of organized crime that goes well beyond cattle rustling—a breed of deception and greed that has turned into a silent killer and will take down anyone who crosses its path. The question is whether Tuck and Harley will be able to shut it down before it finds the people they love the most…

Hard Country

Tucker Snow is as tough as they come, hardened by decades working as an undercover narcotics agent for the Texas Department of Public Safety. Through special dispensation from the governor, he and his brother Harley cut a wide swath through the criminal element of Northeast Texas. But tragedy comes calling after taking a dream job as a special ranger with the Texas and Southwestern Cattle Raisers Association, when Tucker’s wife and toddler are killed in a horrific traffic accident caused by a drug-addled felon. Close to breaking, Tucker sets his badge aside to move his surviving teenage daughter outside of Ganther Bluff, a quiet town with enough room for them to mourn their unexpected loss.

But peace doesn’t last long for a man like Tucker Snow. Instead of settling into small-town life to heal from such an unimaginable loss, a fresh kind of hell hits them with full force.

Crimes and secrets strangle this rural community, and when a new form of meth with the street name of gravel gets too close to home, it’s enough for Tucker to put his badge back on and call Harley for help. The town will ultimately be better off with him as a resident lawman, but this unforgiving landscape will threaten everything Tucker holds dear.

Praise for Hard Country:

“An action fan’s dream. Non-stop excitement. Wonderful characters. A terrific locale. And a startling bulletin about how your car is watching you.”
—David Morrell, New York Times bestselling author of First Blood (Rambo)

“A stunning success! Hard Country checks all the boxes: a nonstop thriller plot, characters who are so real we’re sure we’ve crossed paths in real life, and a breathtaking portrait—both searing and sympathetic—of a small town, from an author whose compelling voice and keenly observant eye transport us there. Wortham is known for his protagonists and Tucker Snow is one of his all-time best: sharp, uncompromising, wry, thoroughly human, and the one thing we don’t see enough of nowadays: a dyed-in-the-wool hero. I was going to set aside a weekend to read the book. My problem? What to do with the rest of Saturday afternoon and Sunday—yes, Hard Country is the definition of a one-sitting read. Bravo!”
—Jeffery Deaver, New York Times bestselling author of The Bone Collector and Hunting Time

“Rich characters and a unique plot bring this book to life. These pages brim with the creak of saddle leather and the sulfur smell gun smoke! Terrific stuff! Hard Country is bound to be a Western classic!”
—Marc Cameron, New York Times bestselling author of Breakneck: An Arliss Cutter Thriller, Tom Clancy’s Red Winter, and the Jericho Quinn Thrillers
