ABOUT RIO HONDO, BOOK THREE: With the embers of the Lincoln County War still burning, rancher Wes Bracken must rebuild his life amid the white-hot animosities lingering from the deadly feud.  His vengeful brother-in-law vows to kill him, the county’s economic kingpin seeks revenge and the despicable outlaw Jesse Evans, who violated Bracken’s wife, intends to murder Bracken and his young family. 

Two promises complicate Bracken’s survival chances:  a pledge not to kill his wife’s brother and a commitment to help William H. Bonney earn a governor’s pardon for his crimes.  To survive and fulfill his dream of a peaceful life in 1880s New Mexico Territory, Bracken must fight a corrupt legal system, a duplicitous governor, a ubiquitous political ring, and the evil Jesse Evans. 

If Bracken keeps his promises to his wife and Billy the Kid, he risks an early grave in the same soil that holds so many of the Lincoln County War’s dead.  If he ignores those pledges, he will dishonor the good name he hopes to build his future upon.

A NOTE FROM THE AUTHOR:

This novel is a grim look at the impact of the Lincoln County War on the lives of average people who tried to avoid choosing sides amid a legal system sided with the corrupt. Even the innocent who are just trying to get by and make a living get caught up in the violence that permeates Lincoln County. The law of the region never seems to be on the side of the righteous.
