Overview

On Hank Littleton’s first assignment as a Texas Ranger, he shows how his crack-shot aim can stop the careful escape plan of a group of prisoners being escorted to Austin. Then his captain again pairs him with war veteran Joe Casebolt on a do-or-die assignment: catch the notorious band of robbers led by former lawman Isom Whitaker that is working the stages and rails near San Antonio.

The two Rangers soon conclude that this wouldn’t be such a tough job if it were only the Whitaker gang causing all the trouble. But a lone bandit, and brother of the local sheriff, has been pulling some spectacular jobs of his own—and leaving a trail of corpses half-way across Bandera County. The pursuit of the bandits follows a twisted path leading finally to Bandera Pass—the perfect place for an ambush. It is there that Hank learns a truth that shatters the last of his innocence in this taut, suspenseful tale of deceit, justice, and revenge.

When Washburn sent this novel to her agent, he told L.J. that the book read like Louis L'Amour on drugs. Washburn wasn't sure if he meant this as a compliment or an insult until he commented on how he never would have guessed the ending.
