The Greatest Western Writer Of The 21st Century

William W. Johnstone, the USA Today bestselling master of the epic Western, continues the saga of the four O'Brien brothers--bravehearted men working and fighting the untamed lands of New Mexico Territory to build a dream of America.

The Hangman Cometh. . .

When a farmer's wife is murdered, an innocent man is accused: Patrick O'Brien. The book-loving brother had shared his love of literature with the woman, but her husband claims she spurned Pat's advances and that's why he killed her. Now it looks like Patrick will swing from the gallows--especially after his lawyer is targeted, too. Pat's brothers try to track down the real killer, but time is running out. A team of hired guns has come to town, and they're choking the family ranch like a noose. For the brothers O'Brien, it's judgment day. And justice will be served--in a hellstorm of blood and bullets. . .

Baker & Taylor
When he is wrongly accused of killing a farmer's wife, Patrick O'Brien, sentenced to hang, must place his faith in his brothers Samuel, Jacob and Shawn to track down the real killer before he meets his maker. Original.

My first western in a long time. The theme is certainly different from what I was used too (Satanic Cult and brutal language). However, I did enjoy the book and look forward to reading another Willian W. Johnstone/J. A. Johnstone novel.
