The most dangerous man in the west is back…
Jeff Moore has spent the past five years in prison for his crimes.
Nicknamed “The Cougar Kid,” Jeff earned his reputation as a sharp-shooter and a ruthless criminal.
But following his release from prison, all he wants to do is bury his past and start again.
Only trouble is, someone won’t let it stay buried.
Somebody is going around calling themselves “The Cougar Kid”.
So when the Governor of Arizona appoints Jeff to the position of Marshall and tasks him with bringing the culprit in, dead or alive, Jeff doesn’t hesitate.
But he soon realises that this will be the most dangerous and exciting mission of his life.
It’s a job that will take all his courage, strength and might even take his life.
But Jeff doesn’t have time to stop and think about it – there’s a pretty girl involved for starters, two of them in fact.
On his desperate hunt for the person who stole his name and reputation, Jeff soon finds himself backed into a tight spot.
In this action-packed and fast-paced novel, Mason Macrae gives us a hero that won’t back down and a tale to remember. The perfect read for Louis L’Amour fans.
