CUT TO THE QUICK
It all kicks off with a train robbery that goes horribly wrong. The James-Younger gang is on the rampage and Belle and Kirby are in the midst of it. One thing leads to another and a vengeful Allen Pinkerton, boss of the Pinkerton Agency, is not about to let things slide. He demands an all out offensive on the outlaw and Belle and Kirby call on their old friend Lomas Belle to help out.
Lomas has long-held secrets to tell, but it’s difficult to part with them in the midst of a raging gun battle that involves Pinkerton agents and outlaws intent on capturing a big payload.
A prize more worthy than gold is the outcome for Belle. She learns chilling news that buys a ticket on a steamer for her and Kirby. Turns out it’s a ticket to hell as they face a deadly battle in wild country where danger lurks everywhere and death comes calling in shiny little packets of lead.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Tony Masero is an internationally known Illustrator, who is perhaps best known for his stunning book covers. Of the many series he worked on he is particularly known for the two best selling and long running Western series for George G Gilman's Edge and Steele characters, where he painted most of the covers for the European market. Tony originally trained as a Graphic Designer in London and worked in the design field before taking up Illustration. After a successful career in Illustration he turned to writing and now often uses his earlier skills to create the design and artwork for his own book jackets. During a long career his artwork has fronted many popular books in different genres but his love of Westerns arose out of the research necessary to complete his artwork and in the same way he often creates his novels around some elements of historical fact. Tony has two sons and a daughter and now lives with his wife, Diana in Portugal.
