An American original, the great Johnny D. Boggs weaves a Texas-sized tale of an 1880s badlands--under the grasp of a lawman gone rogue. . .

In For Justice
In For The Kill

Between the Pecos River and Rio Grande a vast, harsh land was ruled by Texas Rangers Captain Hector Savage. Savage's motive wasn't duty, it was money; he's turned this desolate place into a bloodied, terrorized kingdom. Now, a prot#65533;g#65533; of Savage, Sergeant Dave Chance, has come with a prisoner--a big-talking murderer in his own right--shackled at his side. A decent, honest Ranger, Chance cannot stand idly by while Savage runs roughshod over the territory. Now, to save a traumatized people, he must turn his prisoner loose and give him a gun. Only their combined firepower can penetrate Savage's fortress and kill him.

That is, if they don't kill each other first. . .

This is a great tale about opportunity and greed in a time when a man could claim a territory to himself, and transportation was a mixture of horses and rails.

What to you do when the badge of law is the evil you fear the most?

Dave Chance is a 19th century super-hero.
