Coming in November at Graphic Audio!

Some people don't know when to leave bad enough alone. Just when it seemed that Smoke Jensen's life had settled down to something resembling normal, he'd all but forgotten the vicious young gunfighter who called himself Sundance. Smoke had hoped to teach that twisted kid a lesson by shooting off his ear. But the lesson didn't take. Now, after years on the run, Sundance's hunger for revenge has pushed him over the edge. He's gathered a gang of the worst robbing, pillaging, raping scum from the Texas-Mexico border and is heading for the Sugarloaf with the fool idea of nailing Smoke Jensen's hide to the wall. Didn't anyone tell the kid that an old lobo like Smoke Jensen could run bloody rings around him and his reivers in those mountains? Doesn't he realize that Smoke Jensen doesn't give out second chances?

In the depth of a cruel High Lonesome winter comes a cryptic message for Smoke Jensen. The letter tells of skullduggery by gold barons, railroad magnates and Chinese tongs in San Francisco. Smoke knows only one person in the city by the bay: the well-rounded, open-natured Francie, mistress of one of the town's most notorious pleasure palaces.

Smoke once rescued her from raiding Cheyenne, but now Madame Francie is mysteriously dead...and Smoke's arrival in San Francisco is less than welcoming. Then, on the waterfront, he learns of a plot by the wealthy, the mighty, and the deadly to expand their stronghold over the region's gold-rich lands. Beating a trail into the High Sierras, Smoke recruits a band of angry prospectors, ranchers and farmers for a final showdown that could be the end of Smoke Jensen...

Approximate Run Time: 6 hours

The Last Gunfighter: Winter Kill

"It was a favour to a dead friend: Frank Morgan is shepherding a group of mail-order brides to a brawling Alaska boomtown called Skagway. A bushwhacking, a storm-racked sea voyage, and an anything-but-friendly reception isn't enough to stop Morgan and his blushing brides. But a beautiful woman has a lucrative plot on her mind - in the wild, wild north where men are mad with greed and loneliness. Now the last gunfighter will need skills he didn't know he had - plus a few he knows he does. Because this Alaska winter has turned into a death trap. And only the brave, the fierce and the lucky will be alive to see the winter thaw..."

Savagery of The Mountain Man ebook download William W. Johnstone:

"Savagery of The Mountain Man

Where There's Fire. . . There's Smoke. . ..

Santa Clara, Colorado, is 24 hours by train from the land where Smoke Jensen found peace and prosperity on his Sugarloaf Ranch. But somehow, Smoke can't stay away from Santa Clara--and from an evil cattle baron hiding a murderous past.

And Where There's Smoke--There's Justice. . .

For Smoke, it starts at a high-class auction for a pureblood Hereford bull. Smoke wins the bidding--and earns the hatred of Pogue Quentin, Santa Clara's leading citizen and a man living on bloodshed and lies. Then Smoke's friend Pearlie drifts to Santa Clara. And when Pearlie runs afoul of Quentin, all hell will break loose. Now Smoke Jensen is heading to Santa Clara to face a man who already wants him dead--but Pogue Quentin never met anything like the fire of a mountain man. . ."

"The Mountain Man 12 - Fury of the Mountain Man

Smoke Jensen was the last Mountain Man and the fastest gun in the west. But this time, Smoke is going to put his reputation to the test in the southern reaches of Mexico. When two Mexican Gunfighters, and old friends of Smoke Jensen, send a letter asking Smoke for help, he can't possibly say no. He quickly straps on his hog legs and heads down into the middle of a war. A crazy Mexican Bandito, that fancies himself the resurrection of Montezuma, has formed a vast and unstoppable army, and he marches across the land. Anywhere he goes, death and pestilence follow. It will be up to Smoke and his two Gunfighter friends to try and stop the evil that has spread across the land. But even Smoke Jensen will be put to the test when he goes up against the legendary Jaguar warriors of times long since past."

"The First Mountain Man 16 - Preacher's Fire

A big city like St Louis is the last place where a mountain man like Preacher would pick a fight. But how else will he get at the ruthless power broker who is using fear and bloodshed to take over the Western fur trade? Shaving his beard and posing as a farmer from Ohio, Preacher comes face-to-face with Shad Beaumont, and insinuates himself into his organization--as Beaumont's own personal bodyguard. But before Preacher can take down the sadistic leader, innocents--and not-so-innocents--are drawn into Beaumont's intricate web, and Preacher finds the stakes of the game have become alarmingly high."
