Luke Jensen comes from a righteous brood. Survival is in his blood. And he's burned enough gunpowder to forge out his own legend on the frontier as the toughest bounty hunter who ever stalked his prey....
When Luke Jensen traps fugitive Ben Craddock in Arapaho Springs, he's ready to collect on his bounty. But the job's not done - not by a long shot. A raid by a savage gang known as the Legion of Fire has left the peaceful settlement looted, burned to the ground, and the ashes scoured for female hostages - including the marshal's daughter.
For Luke this is more than a hunt. It's now a rescue. And with Craddock busted out of jail and thrown in with the gang, it's also revenge. Wrangling a small posse, Luke heads for the Legion's hideout in the Kansas badlands. Outnumbered, they can't risk an ambush. Instead, it's going to take cutthroat cunning for the outlaws of the Legion of Fire to go down in flames - one by one.

The Legion of Fire Encounters Like Jensen
Luke Jensen is a Bounty Hunter and as was his usual protacall, he always stops in at the Sheriff 's office to announce himself upon arrival in a town. The Marshal of Arapaho Springs was out of town. Luke just told the caretaker the least he had to. He then decided to get a bath and a nice hot meal, since he had been on the trail chasing his man Craddick, a outlaw, for quite some time now. He was wanted for many crimes, but the worst was murder, so that is why Matt was out to bring him back to Texas for trial and of course collect his bounty.
This town was soon to make his job a little harder when a unexpected supprise sprang into action as he and the Marshal who just by chance rode in. After Luke's introduction, the Marshal agreed to house the outlaw in his cell in the back, they returned to the front began jaw jacking, drinking coffee. They considered Matt's prisoner was secure in the cell for the night. As they entered the front office, a man came rushing if screaming to the Marshals, " the legion of fire was in town". This changed Luke's plan as they started shooting at the Marshal's office, all dove for cover.
The Legion of fire was well noted in the West, lead by
Sam Kelsen who would just as soon put a bullet in your forehead as he had dinner and order a drink. He was the Devil in disguise.
William W. Johnston is one of my favorite Western Aurthor 's and I grab any book I see from. His usual Narrator is Jack Garrett, but this book was is read by,
Cory M. Snow, who did the story justice.
Follow alone with Luke Jensen, a member adopted by a man called, Smoke Jensen, a mountain man who had a very large castle farm th Texas. He found Like in the woods as a lad, brought him home and raised him. His Wife Sally was found of the young man to. Smoke taught Matt everything he knows.
I recommend this book for all those that love to listen to excellent Western stories with a blog plot.
