The Greatest Western Writer Of The 21st Century Two hard luck, hard-living cowboys, Bo Creel and Scratch Morton, are the heroes of this new adventure by USA Today bestsellers William W. Johnstone and J.A. Johnstone--in a bloody all-out battle for one family's survival. Texas, Bloody Texas Bo Creel is back at his family's Star C Ranch in Bear Creek, Texas. Along with his buddy Scratch, he's finding out that home is where the hell-raising is. A rival ranch is trying to drive the Creel family out of business, using any means necessary. For Bo and Scratch, always suckers for a pretty face, come two young ladies who just might blur the battle lines. Desperate to raise cash, the Creel family sets off on a trial drive south to Rockport and a thriving cattle market on the Gulf of Mexico. That's when their rivals strike a devastating blow. Now Bo and Scratch are madder than two wet hens. Assembling a ragtag army of aging, crusty cowboys who've seen their share of gun battles, Bo and Scratch need to recapture a stolen herd and make it to the Texas coast in time to save the Creel family's future--while a relentless enemy is about to unload the bloodiest mayhem to ever drench Texas . . .
