Mike Bray The Devil's Bounty on March 17, 2012 Clint Ryan’s fast gun and flashing blade strikes terror into the hearts of the Barbary Coast and those who traffic in human flesh. The barracoons (good history, by the way) are auction houses where those with California gold in their pockets can buy Chinese girls as if they were sides of beef. Gold fever has swept across California and lawlessness and violence are close behind. As usual, Martin serves up a can’t-put-it-down story with superb time and place when San Francisco was at her wildest. Clint cuts a wide swath through Sidney Ducks, Chinese tongs, and the rest of the owlhoots of the Barbary Coast. He teams up with a freedman, Gideon, who is his equal, and together they set out to exact a measure of honor and justice in a city where the only law is the gun. Don’t miss this one.
