I'M TYREL SACKETT AND
I WAS BORN TO TROUBLE...


I killed a man in Tennessee, fair and square, but me and my brother Orrin hit the trail west.  Those were the years when decent men and women went in fear of Indians, rustlers and killers, but we made the West a land where folks could raise their young 'uns.  Orrin brought law and order from Santa Fe to Montana, and I backed him all the way.  Because, till the day I hung it up, I was the fastest gun alive!

LANDO
Sackett got to Texas with a well-oiled hogleg, a racing mule that didn't look worth its salt and a damn good idea of the whereabouts of buried gold across the border in Mexico.  In Mexico he had had luck.  His party had to run for it, and when Lando stood rear guard they pulled out and left him.  Six years in a Mexican prison put muscles in his arms, fire in his heart and pure recklessness in his head.  When he caught up with the men who betrayed him, it made no difference that he didn't have a gun.

Tell Sackett was packing thirty pounds of gold and no worries - until he got to the ferry at the Colorado.  Trouble found him there.  It looked like a black-eyed woman, pretty as a young filly, and a hundred times more set to buck any man.  It looked like a gang of hardcases, with other folks' gold.  And trouble looked like the other side of the rive - the hottest, driest, most brutal desert on the continent.

IT WAS ALMOST
TOO MUCH FOR EVEN A
SACKETT TO HANDLE!


He could outride and outshoot any five men, but he was a fool for a lady in distress.  The posse was hot on his trail for murder when he took time out to rescue Sylvie from a gang of desperados.  It wasn't till she'd bushwhacked him with a shotgun, and tried to poison him that he realized she was up to no good.  And no sooner had he shot his way out of her clutches than he met Penelope.  After he'd heard her sad story, he should have cut and run, but somehow a Sackett never seems to learn the easy way.

Tell Sackett had been lured into the Apache's mountain stronghold by the icy beauty of his brother's wife.  He didn't go alone.  John J. Battles, Spanish Murphy and the half-breed Tampico rode beside him.  Each was driven by his past to test his speed and cunning against an enemy who could smell a white man a mile away - and then shoot his eyes out at a dead gallop.  It was a contest few men would enter - and fewer still could hope to win.
