I grew up reading Louie L’Amour, Elmer Kelton and Zane Grey. No one writes better westerns than these and I learned a lot from them. Dusty Richards is another who can spin gripping westerns. And I’m not just saying that because he’s a friend and I have a lot of his books on my keeper shelf. He’s from Arkansas but I don’t hold that against him. Between Hell and Texas has everything I need in a good western–a tough cowboy who’ll ride straight through hell with guns blazing and come out the other side, a strong family and a great setting. If you’ve never read any of Dusty’s maybe you should change that.
With blood and tears, Chet Byrnes built a life in Texas, only to have it shattered by an ill-fated cattle drive and two deadly family feuds. Spurned by the woman he loves, Chet sets off for new territory. The journey won’t come cheap.
And Ready For Any Fight That Comes.
Chet leads the Byrnes family across New Mexico into a harsh, haunting land. His long lost brother Cagle, after 15 years living among the Comanche, reappears. So does the family’s blackest black sheep. Then, amidst old grudges and new battles, Chet picks up the trail of a killer he desperately wants to bring to justice. The reward is a hearty welcome to Arizona. The risk: dying before he can meet the one woman who’d make it all worthwhile. . .
