Could the most feared gunman in the West become a respectable lawman in the wildest city in Texas?

Ben Thompson carved out a name for himself as a gambler and a shootist-from Dodge City to the Rio Grande. But settling down in Austin with a wife and young son didn't settle Ben's taste for the sporting life. He still found himself in the gambling dives-where the turn of a card too often led to a shootout. Then a circle of powerful businessmen decided Thompson was the only man who could tame Austin's wild side. They asked him to rule the streets and take no prisoners. They asked him to take on the job of a marshal in a town where every man packed a gun. And for Thompson, his explosive career as a lawman would prove to be a crossroads. His personal code of honor was the price for a tin-star badge. . .

Homer Watts, the dealer, was a tombstone peddler who fancied himself a poker player. The other men in the game had dropped out of the hand.Watts stared across the table with an eager smile. The game was five-card stud, and Thompson’s hand revealed a jack, a three, a jack and a king. In the hole he had another jack, but it was the king that impressed him most.

About the Author

Matt Braun

Matt Braun is a fourth generation Westerner, steeped in the tradition and lore of the frontier era. His books reflect a heritage rich with the truths of that bygone time. Raised among the Cherokee and Osage tribes, Braun learned their traditions and culture, and their philosophy became the foundation of his own beliefs. Like his ancestors, he has spent most of his life wandering the mountains and plains of the West. His heritage and contribution to Western literature resulted in his appointment by the Governor of Oklahoma as a Territorial Marshal.

Braun is the author of over forty novels and four nonfiction works, including Black Fox, which was made into a CBS miniseries, and One Last Town which was made into a TNT movie called You Know My Name. Western Writers of America awarded Braun the prestigious Spur Award for his novel The Kincaids. He was also the recipient of the Cowboy Spirit Award and was inducted into the Cowboy Hall of Fame in 1999.
