Roy Bean’s Gold W.R. Garwood (Five Star, $25.95)

W.R. Garwood writes a fictional, first-person account of Judge Roy Bean’s early days before he became known as the “Hanging Judge.” In Roy Bean’s Gold, Bean tries to retrieve stolen gold after a payroll heist. In this traditional shoot-’em-up—complete with gunplay, barroom brawls and feisty, doe-eyed senoritas—Bean follows the deadly trail of outlaws led by Joaquin Murieta.
