Series: Jeston Nash
(From the publisher):
In a chaotic blast of gunfire, the James Gang fled a posse's attack - and the infamous Jesse threw his cousin Jeston Nash a hoard of stolen cash. But dodging the law with thirty thousand dollars in a dusty carpetbag is a risky proposition. Hoping to lie low in the mountains of the Northwest, Jeston and his partner, Quiet Jack, find themselves on a journey into the dark heart of himan nature - and deadly animal instinct...
Jeston Nash is used to dodging bullets, but when a hired thug's rotten remark gets under his skin, he can't let it go - and he makes himself an instant enemy aboard a snowbound train owned by the sleaze's boss, Ben Larr. A rich son-of-a-gun hell-bent on getting the grizzly who robbed him of a leg, Larr is a fouler piece of work than the usual brand of lowlifes Nash comes up against. When Larr blackmails Nash into leading his hunt, Nash discovers the killers of man in Larr's twisted domain - a netherworld filled with violence and drugs, obsession and revenge. Before long, he finds himself face-to-face with Laura, Larr's gorgeous but murderously manipulative wife, and one savage grizzly, a man-killer straight from the jaws of hell...
