A Bullet for Billy
Publisher: HarperCollins Publishers IncFormat: Paperback
This is the second book in a new trilogy by a master of the western featuring Jim Glass, a drifter trying to leave behind his former lives as a Confederate soldier and Texas Ranger. An old friend comes calling on his old friend Jim Glass. Captain Gus Rogers of the Texas Rangers is dying of cancer and needs his old friend to back him up one last time. Gus' grandkids have fallen on hard times with the loss of their parents and have turned to theft and other wicked means in order to survive. While south of the border they are accused of the murdering the daughter of a Mexican general and are given a death sentence. Gus believes the eldest, Billy, is guilty of the crime and swears to kill him so that the youngest brother may go on living. Gus asks his old pupil Jim Glass to finish the job if cancer lays him low. Jim, who had thought he'd gotten out of the bloodletting business, feels he has not choice but to help his oldest friend and mentor and the man who once saved his life. It goes against everything that's in him to join the fight, but sometimes a man has no choice but to fight, even if it's another man's battle.
