THEY CALL HIM THE oWIDOWMAKERo
a
Newt Jones is none too proud of his deadly nickname. But when you tangle with the likes of Judge Roy Bean and the notorious Mexican outlaw Juan Cortina, a man's bound to earn a reputation. Or get stuck with a monicker like oWidowmaker.o Even so, Newt is ready to put his gunslinging days behind him, hang up his Winchester, and take it easy. There's just one problem- Ain't nothing easy about living in Apache country . . .
a
When Newt gets word that a renegade tribe has kidnapped Mattilda Redding's grandson, he can't just sit by and let the local authorities bungle it. Mattilda once did him a good turn up on the Pecos and-flat broke and half drunk or not-he's got to help the old gal out. So he saddles up his medicine horse, straps on his dead man's gun, and sets off to save this boy before he's buzzard chow. Sure, Newt's outnumbered, outgunned, and probably out of his mind. But they don't call him Widowmaker Jones for nothing . . .
