Summary
"They call him 'The Butcher of Baxter Pass,' the notorious former Union general who massacred 200 Confederate prisoners--just because he could. Now it's Sheriff Jess Casey's unenviable job to protect the bloodthirsty murderer from those who want him dead, which turns out be pretty much everyone south of the Mason-Dixon Line. When the Butcher arrives in Fort Worth--followed by the vengeance-hungry McNamara clan--Casey has to swallow his disgust and uphold the law, even if it means saving a mass murderer's hide. But it won't be easy"--Back cover

Summary
Hell’s Half Acre is home to Kurt Koenig and his gang-run empire of booze, prostitution, and wholesale slaughter. For Koenig, the only good lawman is a dead one, and he puts a pretty price on Jess Casey’s head. For Jess Casey, that means war. Against him are the frontier’s fastest draw and a host of murderous triggers. On his side are decades of rock-hard Texas living, a couple of ne’er-do-well deputies, and the good sense to do all his talking behind the barrel of a fast-blazing gun..
