This is book number 1 in the Shotgun Johnny series.


From the legendary Johnstones, the first in an action-packed new shoot-em-up series featuring a disgraced former marshal whose quest for revenge turns into a war for justice…


It takes a brave man to ride shotgun for the Reverend’s Temptation Gold Mine in the Sierra Nevada Mountains. It takes an even braver man to try to rob a coach of bullion when the shotgun rider is Johnny Greenway. Armed with his weapons of choice—two sawed-off, double-barreled shotguns in custom-made holsters for pistol-quick draws—Shotgun Johnny ain’t stopping for no one . . .


Johnny Greenway was once a family man. A well-respected marshal who always played fair. Then his wife and son were killed by cutthroats. Johnny killed the killers. Then he hung up his badge and picked up a bottle. Now a shadow of his former self, he has nothing much to live for. But when he singlehandedly stops a bank robbery, he catches the eye of the banker’s daughter. She’s impressed by Johnny’s gun skills, and offers him a job riding shotgun. First he’ll have to stop drinking and clean up his act. But that’s not all that needs cleaning. The mountain trail to the mine hides the filthiest, dirtiest gang in the territory. They’re gunning for the gold. But Shotgun Johnny will be gunning for them . . .
