|| THE GREATEST WESTERN WRITER OF THE 21ST CENTURY The American West—bright with hope and possibility, ravaged by war and greed, and forged by the men and myths that defined the frontier. Men like renowned gunfighter Falcon MacCallister who risked his life to defend it . . . The Ballad Of Billy The Kid In Pecos Valley, New Mexico, a cattle war has erupted, pitting rancher against rancher across a once-peaceful land. It has thrust MacCallister into the dead center of one of the most violent battles on record—and barrel to barrel with the greatest challenge he has ever faced. His name is William Bonney. His victims called him Billy the Kid. MacCallister calls him a bad risk. But in the deadly gamble of the Lincoln Country War, placing your bet on an outlaw like the Kid is the only game in town. MacCallister's Law: never turn your back on a man . . . unless he's already dead.
