Rio Diablo and The Proud Gun by Gordon D. Shirreffs
Gear up for a High-Country Adventure in this classic western double by Gordon D. Shirreffs.
In Rio Diablo, after his friend and fellow Ranger, Bass Burnett is killed, Vic Jamison reluctantly re-joins the Arizona Rangers as an undercover agent. His mission — to clean up the savage Rio Diablo country — a job that the army had given up on ten years ago.
In a stubborn battle against cruel elements and even crueler men, he soon comes to realize why so many men died in pursuit of the same goal. . . and why his chances of survival are no better.
In The Proud Gun, only one man’s word is law. When former U.S. Marshall Les Gunnell arrives in Sundown, New Mexico, he soon discovers that it is not the same town as when he left. After his former deputy and friend, Will Ripley is brutally slain, Gunnell vows to find those responsible in this gritty-high country adventure.
“The joy of reading Shirreffs’ work is in his mastery of pacing and his tough, gritty prose.” – James Reasoner, author of Outlaw Ranger.
