Whiskey River (Sundown Riders Series #5)by Ralph Compton
Mark Rogers and Bill Harder return to their Texas spreads only to find the properties repossessed. In a moment of rage, the pair gun down two Yankee tax collectors. Sentenced to an agonizing existence at Fort Worth, they are then offered a deal by an Army captain--break out of jail and infiltrate a deadly gang of whiskey runners--and their lands and lives will be returned to them. The pair escape and find work as drivers for the gang, all the while looking to bring them down and save the two fair ladies being held hostage.
