Out of the Dark

A primal fear of what emerges from the night provides the foundation to this story of anxiety and psychological drama when ancient deeds resurface for Pete Gillis.

Looking to avenge an old wrong, Cabe McCall rides to Arizona hoping to tracking down the shadowy killers of his brother only to find himself thrust into an even deeper and deadlier mystery.

Killers of Coyote Pass

Tom Gaines learns that driving cattle though the only mountain pass for a hundred miles is treacherous enough without rustlers' gunfire raining down on you.
