Writing in the style of Louis L’Amour, Zane Grey, Larry McMurtry and William W. Johnstone, Best-Selling Western Author John Spiars, author of Riders of the Lone Star, Hell and Half of Texas, and Bound for Vengeance, returns with BLOOD TRAIL, the fourth novel in the Heck Carson Series.
Texas Ranger, Jesse “Heck” Carson, is living the life he has always dreamed of, chasing down and capturing the outlaws who ply their evil trade along the Mexican border. When orders come from the Federals that the Rangers are to be disbanded, Heck decides that the time has come for him to begin building a life for himself that doesn’t involve getting shot at by killers and horse thieves, but he has one last mission to complete first.
The O’Shea gang is a group of former Union soldiers from the famed and infamous Irish Brigade, who have come to Texas to exact their own revenge for the war by butchering as many Southerners as they can. Before Heck can start the next chapter of his life, he must put a stop to this scourge before the gang makes it across the Mexican border to safety.
As he chases the gang across the Texas frontier, Heck meets many who are on the same quest, but with motives far different than his own. The brutality of the O’Shea gang is matched only by those who seek to make a name for themselves by putting them in the ground, and Heck Carson finds himself caught in the middle. To accomplish his job and rid the state of this scourge, Heck will have to figure out whom he can trust, and together they will have to make the fight of their lives.
