Deadly Prey -- Peter Brandvold

This is the second book in the "Rogue Lawman" series. What's it like? Imagine The Executioner series set in the old west, and you'll have the idea. The wife and son of Gideon Hawk, the rogue lawman, have been murdered. Hawk decides that he has to kill 100 bad guys to achieve revenge. I don't know what the body count is in this book, and I haven't read the first one, but I figure the series won't last long if Hawk keeps up this pace. Three books should do it, if he hasn't reached the goal in this one.

The complication in the plot is that the governors of three states have met and sent a man to kill Hawk. He's a vigilante, after all, and they don't like that. Besides, he's making regular law enforcement look bad.

Lots of action, lots of killing, even some sex. Short and violent. If you thought they didn't write 'em like this anymore, this is the book for you.

Might be interesting to check out. I;ve read some of his Ben Stillman Once series, but it's been a few years.
