Creed's Law

The Texas Anthem Series

Kerry Newcomb

St. Martin's Paperbacks

Billy Anthem is a long way from Texas when he comes to the Pacific Coast town of Calamity Bay. On his way north, Billy survives a bushwhacking and ends up deputized by a sheriff who needs someone to trust. For a decade, Calamity Bay has been in the grip of one man. Following a brutal murder, Noah Creed and his sons want a murder suspect hanged--no matter what the evidence shows, no matter what the law says.

Now, for a Texan a long way from, there's only one choice: to be armed and ready for anything--in a place where he belongs...
