A retired detective pairs up with a sworn enemy to solve a series of countryside murders in Snowy Range Gang, and an atoning criminal goes on a dangerous adventure seeking lost treasure in Vendetta Gold: two memorable novels from Spur Award-winning author Mike Blakely.
The Snowy Range Gang
Claude Duval thought he was through with rustlers and killers when he left Texas for Wyoming. But the retired livestock detective soon finds ranch hands turning up dead and cattle missing. It looks like the work of Lone Wolf Wolverton, who murdered Duval's partner years ago. But Lone Wolf, who's done his time and gone straight, rides to Duval's ranch looking for a chance to prove he's being framed. Out of leads, the lawman reluctantly accepts help from the man he's sworn to kill, and the unlikely pair teams up to track down the real rustlers and killers, the Snowy Range Gang.
A bloody family feud sent Roy Huckaby to a dusty Texas prison for three years. Now that he’s out, he vows to follow the straight and narrow and to ride alone into a solid new life. But when a dying vaquero gives him a treasure map, the opportunity is too exciting to pass up. Roy starts out on a path he hopes will lead to incalculable wealth, only to find it's bordered with dangerous pitfalls--and unexpected romance.
