A.W. HART has done it again in the fifth book in the rough-and-tumble action adventure western series starring Concho Ten-Wolves!
Texas Ranger Concho Ten-Wolves nearly died in New Orleans when a rocket propelled grenade blew up the truck he was driving. He settled that score and now he’s headed home for the Kickapoo reservation in Eagle Pass, Texas where he lives. His Captain doesn’t like him and has suspended him without pay. He’s riding a Greyhound bus and all he wants at Christmas time is some peace. He’s not going to get it.
Trouble climbs on the Greyhound in the form of two strangers—a teenage girl who looks like a runaway and a man who looks like a predator. Concho is worried. He knows, children disappear. Sometimes forever.
Not on his watch!
Texas Ranger Concho Ten-Wolves grew up on the Kickapoo reservation just outside Eagle Pass, Texas, on the Rio Grande border between Mexico and the United States. His mother was full-blooded Kickapoo, his father was black – they disappeared before he was a year old. He knows his father is dead and was always told his mother was, too. He considers himself completely alone, with no close blood relatives, and he’s content with that.
Until…an invitation comes to meet a near stranger in New Orleans. The stranger shares a rumor, Concho’s mother might still be alive. Concho is a trained skeptic; he doesn’t believe it. But he has to check it out, and now people are trying to kill him to keep him from asking questions.
They can hunt Ten-Wolves all they want – he won’t be stopped.
“A.W. Hart is one of the most creative writers ever as he demonstrates with this full-bodied, graphically visual tales of prejudice, crime and eventual justice!” – Reader
Concho Ten-Wolves is a Texas Ranger working the Rio Grande border between Mexico and the U.S.. His father was black, his mother a full-blood member of the Kickapoo Traditional Tribe of Texas. He remembers neither of them. Both disappeared soon after Concho’s birth and his Kickapoo grandmother raised him on the tribal reservation just outside Eagle Pass, Texas.
Often bullied as a youth for his differences, Concho soon grew into the promise of his big hands and wide shoulders. Hatred of him remained in some; fear joined that emotion in others. Concho learned to walk a solitary path, which first took him away to college and then to Afghanistan as an Army Ranger.
Now, a group of Neo-Nazi terrorists have taken over a mall in Eagle Pass. One hostage is the woman Concho loves. The only path Concho can see is straight ahead and through.
"Fog the sage and powder the air with the rough-'n-ready A.W. Hart!" – Peter Brandvold, bestselling author of the Yakima Henry westerns.
A routine morning turns deadly as Concho Ten-Wolves, a Texas Ranger working the Rio Grande border between Mexico and the U.S., responds to a bank robbery where shots have been fired. The robbery proves to be the least of Concho’s troubles as it opens up a mystery that pits kin against kin and lust against love. Through the heart of it all stalks an elusive figure whose crimes are just coming to light.
Everyone is pushing Ten-Wolves to stay out of it, to let sleeping dogs lie. But Concho has already taken sides and he’s about to push back.
"A.W. Hart is one of the most entertaining Western writers in the business!" – James Reasoner, Author of Rattler’s Law.
Concho Ten-Wolves left the army to join the Texas Rangers. He lives on the Kickapoo reservation just outside Eagle Pass, Texas, on the Rio Grande Border between Mexico and the USA. His mother was a full-blooded member of the tribe; his father was black…both of them disappeared soon after his birth.
Concho does his job and takes his hits. He’s made plenty of enemies who want him dead and now even his past is coming back to taunt him. A knock on his door late one night sets a chain of mysterious events in motion. He uncovers two skeletons on the reservation, a woman and child – murdered.
It doesn’t matter that his enemies are coming for him, or that he doesn’t know who they are or how they’ll strike. The innocent dead deserve justice, and he’ll see they get it.
“One of the most entertaining writers in the business!" – James Reasoner, Author of Rattler’s Law.

Hounding the Confederate devils’ every step, these black-winged angels begin efficiently and bloodily killing them—one by one and two by two—reading to them from the Good Book while sending them back to Hell.

He gets his chance when River Hicks, a man wanted for the murder of a policeman in Fort Worth, rides in with a pack of bounty hunters on his trail. When the gun smoke clears, Connor has killed men for the first time, but he also knows this is his and Abby’s time to escape their life of abuse.
Knowing the law will soon be on their heels, they follow Hicks—an outlaw driven by his own demons, and by deep secrets which somehow involve the Mack twins.
