Abstract:

"A KILLER BORN When it comes to taking lives, Lucius Stark is just about the meanest mongrel who ever aimed a gun in west Texas. For him, killing means making money, and if the price is right, he'll do the job. But even the hardest of men has a soft spot ... A KILLER BETRAYED when Stark grows too fond of a woman he is hired to kill in a range war, his client shows his displeasure by shooting him in the back. Stark is saved by the Butcher family-the very ranchers he was paid to eliminate. But when the Butchers end up slaughtered without mercy, Stark sets out to deliver his own brand of vengeance ... free of charge.--BOOK COVER.
