Mason Hawke has a dark past that he's trying to forget, but now he must choose between wealth and power or saving a town that's under the rule of a corrupt lawman.
Mason Hawke emerged from war a scarred man, a man unable to return to a life of power and privilege. His only way out is to start his life anew, concealing his past from those he encounters. But things don't always go according to plan, which Mason finds out when he stops in a town where he knows the local sheriff, a man who has the town under his thumb. All he wants to do is settle down and pretend the past never happened. But now Mason has to decide whether to live the easy life, forgetting his past, or to risk sacrificing himself, and help the town break free of the tyrannical lawman, at the risk of exposing something he'd wanted to keep buried.
There's no peace for Mason Hawke from the ghosts of his past. A drifter and a loner, he's not looking for trouble when he rides into Wyoming Territory –– but it's waiting for him nonetheless. Coming to the rescue of a wealthy landowner's daughter who was kidnapped by a pair of inept outlaws, Hawke finds himself an unlikely hero in a town called Green River.
But his unsought celebrity has earned him some powerful enemies, including a land–hungry lady with a crooked official in her pocket and a ruthless killer on a leash. Justice, it seems, is an illusion in this place where fraud and fortune hunting dance with cold–blooded murder. But all that is about to change in a brutal hail of gunfire now that Hawke has come to play.
The memory of all the good men he killed during the Civil War still haunts former Captain Mason Hawke—fathers, sons, brothers, and husbands, who just happened to be wearing Union blue. Now only bad men can enflame his killing rage.
A drifter who makes his living playing piano in frontier saloons, Hawke has come to a blood-soaked corner of Idaho, answering a desperate call for help from a woman he once loved. War is ripping King Hill apart—born of the ruthless greed of wealthy cattlemen—and it threatens to expose Hawke's tragic history. But Cynthia Macgregor and her husband Ian know what he can do, and that he's their only hope against the professional firepower lining up against them. The enemy has the numbers, but the Macgregors have Mason Hawke.
This war is just beginning . . .
IN A BATTLE OF GOOD VERSUS EVIL, WHO WILL PREVAIL?
An action-packed, captivating western novel by bestselling author Robert Vaughan.
In 1885 Buck Elliot, already a legendary gunfighter, comes to Canyon Diablo, Arizona Territory, to aid a friend and several small, but honest ranchers who must deal with Nigel Smythe, a titled Englishman who is trying to build a fiefdom under the Mogollon Rim. Smythe has hired as many gunfighters as cowboys, using them to force the smaller ranchers out of business, but Buck who has been commissioned an Arizona Ranger by the governor, organizes the small ranchers to defend their rights. In a direct confrontation between Buck, his friends, and the outlaw army of Smythe, good prevails over evil.
A little more than forty years later Buck Elliot, a still-living iconic gunfighter of the Old West, comes to Hollywood to be a technical consultant for LEGEND OF A GUNFIGHTER, a movie about his life. He discovers that the star of the movie, Clive Malone, is more interested in playing himself than he is in portraying the true story. Buck enlists the aid of Ernest Haycox, author of the book from which the movie is to be taken, and they try to get the studio to bring the picture more into line with the truth.

But it doesn't matter how many killers he sends Hawke's way, because the target plays by his own rules: draw first, shoot fast, and keep watching your back.
