--Faith Hunter NYT and USAToday bestseller
Texas rancher and lawman John Cronin knows what it means to be tough. A decorated Vietnam vet with connections to law enforcement agencies all around the world, he’s thwarted smugglers and drug plots across the globe with more than a few narrow escapes. Whether it’s a sniper competition or teaching the feds a thing or two about police work, Cronin doesn’t hesitate to pull the trigger. Of course, this slow-talking lawman’s biggest challenge yet might be when his granddaughter Jesse falls in love with a Marine. When drug smugglers stir up trouble in Cronin’s backyard and try to kill Jesse and her new beau, all hell breaks loose, and Cronin and his granddaughter are just the people to set things right.
Tight Bridge Technologies hired Ethan Fargo and his militia to guard their power stations on the planet Endine against mob unrest and sabotage. When they arrive, they find the planetary authorities don't want outsiders around to uncover their dirty secrets, and the Galactic Patrol's not interested in providing backup. They all but order him to stop making waves, kicking asses, and taking names. The harder Fargo works to keep his people safe, the more troubles he finds. Dragoons and pirates are stalking the outer system, while the planet itself is a snakepit of treachery, tyranny, rebellion, and corruption. Everyone wants him to fail, while taking the blame.
They made one mistake: they underestimated Ethan Fargo. After the locals kills two of his Ghorkas, and kidnap his lady, he's out for blood, and to hell with anything in his way...
Unfortunately, he's about to find out that he's not as retired as he wants to be, and that his new home system comes with dangers, politics, and Dragoon sightings of its own. What promised to be a boring retirement will turn out to be anything but.
When indians burn out his and the neighbor's ranches, leaving him and Ellen, the neighbor girl, orphans and adrift, he's out to see that she's taken care of, and justice gets done.
It'll be a hard trail ahead, working his way up from raw recruit, but Danny already has three cattle drives under his belt, a fire in his gut, and a slowly healing left leg to remind him why he's camping cold and scouting for tracks.
With a rifle, a pistol, and a good horse, he's got everything he needs to take on the challenges ahead! And possibly, even the girl he left behind...
