(From the publisher):
The hungry gun is a thirty calibre Spencer rifle repeater – the deadliest gun in the west. Its owner is Jubal Cade. A trained doctor, his mission in life is no longer to treat the sick but to track down the scar-faced murderer of his wife. And kill him.
That is why the Spencer is a hungry gun – as it ravenously searches for human game across the wild frontier lands.
But there are other guns greedy for death andJubal must risk his own life in a cross-fire of violence not of his making.
A saloon girl knows where the scar-faced man is heading. Or does she? The mountains and deserts of New Mexico and Arizona run red with spilled blood before Jubal sights a man across a rushing mountain river. Will the hungry gun and the man behind it taste the sweetness of revenge...?
