Jack of Spades and Ambush on the Mesa: Two Full Length Western Novels by Gordon D. Shirreffs
A blazing shoot-out waited for them South of Sonora…
In this classic western double, Hugh Kinzie and Holt Deaver have one thing in common: they’ve both found themselves in tough circumstances that may turn fatal.
A regiment was needed but they sent only one man, Hugh Kinzie – he saddled his dun and rode west. He found the party of men and women ambushed by Red Sleeves, the maniacal chief who hated the white man more than he feared death itself. Hugh counted on one thing to get them out—his old, battered, still-deadly rifle.
Holt Deaver, a young man who has drifted onto the wrong side of the law on occasion is running from trouble. After the men he was riding with robbed and murdered an army paymaster they agreed they would need to kill Holt to keep him quiet.
“If you’re a fan of tough-minded Westerns, I highly recommend it and just about anything else by Gordon D. Shirreffs.” –James Reasoner, author of Rattler’s Law
