Payback at Morning Peak Gene Hackman (Pocket Books, 7.99)

payback-morning-peak_gene-hackmanFollowing his hunting trail on Morning Peak Mountain, Jubal Young hears the explosive finale of a land wrangle between his farmer Pa and the ruthless speculator Billy Tauson.

As Tauson’s backup gunmen ride off, leaving his Pa, Ma and Sis dead, the young surviver’s .22 rifle knocks one killer dead as a doornail and jams Jubal up a serpentine trail of vengeance. In Cerro Vista he helps the law run down the murderers one by one, but Tauson is still the one he needs to find. Academy Award-winning actor Gene Hackman, handling a pen as dexterously as any gunslick does his gun, gives the reader a long, powerful Western balancing revenge with courage and a man in the making.
