(Two Books in One)
HEART OF THE MOUNTAIN MAN
Selling his gun to the highest bidder, sharpshooter Monte Carson rode beside Big Jim Slaughter, the most feared hombre in Wyoming Territory. But when Monte decided to reform his ways and give back $50,000 in stolen army payroll, he made an enemy in Slaughter and a friend in mountain man Smoke Jensen.
Now, an enraged Slaughter wants his money, and if he doesn’t get it, he’s going to kill Monte’s wife, his hostage in an outlaw paradise called Jackson Hole, Wyoming. For Smoke, there’s no choice but to come down off the mountain and ride straight into the Hole, where he and Slaughter will go head to head in a fiery clash of courage, fury, and guns.
JUSTICE OF THE MOUNTAIN MAN
The Mountain Man series, featuring legendary Smoke Jensen, continues to satisfy a legion of loyal readers, with boldly authentic stories that vividly capture the American frontier. Justice of the Mountain finds Smoke Jensen drawn into a fist-fight by a slick-talking thief named the Durango Kid. But when Jensen walked away, nobody was dead.
It isn’t long, though, before U.S. Marshal Bill Tilghman has the Mountain Man arrested for the murder of one of Durango’s gang and headed for a hanging judge in Arkansas. That’s when Smoke knows that he’s going to have to bust out of Tilghman’s jail, hunt down the Durango Kid, and find the truth behind a brutal murder. But there are two things Smoke never counted on: saving Marshall Bill Tilghman’s life — and fighting him again.
