  • JAGGED It was a jagged rip in his memory. In jail for a killing he didn't commit, Edge is puzzled by the prisoner in the next cell. Where had they met before? Was it at Shiloh, or in the horror of Andersonville? This is the sequel to Killer's ...

  • SHARP It seemed nice. A quiet little town, just outside of Los Angeles. The central building is a theater, run by Rodney Holly. Right next door is the photographer, Justin Wood. A small, pleasant place to live, the kind of place people dream ab...

  • BURNING The town called Paradise was hell on earth for outsiders. Off the beaten track, its very isolation let Paradise create its own code of law, and it was vicious, ruthless, and merciless. Edge had already been in a town called Hate, where the...

  • Even from a distance he looked deadly. His lean, towering frame measured at least three inches over six feet. About two hundred pounds of mean muscle and bone. His dark clothes were coated with a gray film of trail dust, from his worn and scarred boo...

  • A dead man is slung over Steele’s saddle as he rides into the town of Black Rock. The townsfolk burn with rage, for the murdered man was well-loved; taken hostage during a bank raid, he had been slain by the notorious Tyler gang. Inspired not by se...
