Publisher's Summary


"Bloody" Joe Mannion is a town tamer of great renown. Known as the most uncompromising lawman on the Western frontier, he's been the town marshal of Del Norte in the Colorado Territory for the past five years.

One day in Del Norte, he loses his famous temper and badly beats Whip Helton, the son of a prominent rancher. That night, the son and his outlaw pards burn Joe's house and kidnap and rape his daughter. Joe goes on the warpath, getting crossways with the son's father, prominent rancher Garth Helton. The town's prominent boosters want the money Helton has invested in Del Norte as well as the railroad he wants to bring there.

Now with Whip Helton behind bars, his father has issued an ultimatum to Bloody Joe and the town—either turn his son loose or he and his Spur riders will burn the town to the ground and sift the ashes. Bloody Joe finds himself between a rock and a hard place, waiting for a bullet in the back. But that's all right. To make sure Whip Helton hangs for kidnapping and rape, Bloody Joe will risk everything, including his life, the town, and a hail of hot lead!

I couldn’t stop listening

I’ll admit that this book has a slow start and doesn’t really grab your attention off the jump. But after I continued listening I really enjoyed the story line, the characters and the narrators voice. This was a great read!
