TWO GUNS ACROSS TEXAS
Historical Tales of the Texas Rangers
Legendary father and son Texas Rangers Larry and John Slade brought law and order to Central Texas for over 72 years.
Thundering through the pages of American history, between 1835 and 1916, the old-school tough Slade men came to occupy an intriguing place in the gripping tales of the Old West.
Serving as a Ranger in the Texas Revolution, and in ferocious battles against the Apache, Comanches, and Mexican outlaws, Larry Slade gained fame for his lightning quick cross draw of his two Colts. He was the ultimate frontiersman and even rode with the noted explorer Kit Carson.
His son John Slade served with the Rangers in Austin, Texas. After proving his mettle on several missions, the young man returned home only to find his parents had perished in a freak accident.
In time, he married his sweetheart. But tragedy strikes. And on his path for revenge, Slade comes into contact with the Hatcher gang. He tangles with the outlaws, and his remarkable skill with a gun is his only hope of settling the score against overwhelming odds.
Seeking justice and personal redemption, John Slade cements his father's legacy with his own equally dogged determination to fight until the end.

When Helen Chapman, the beautiful sixteen-year-old daughter of Army Chief-of-Staff for the European Command in Germany, had gone missing, her father, Brigadier General Earl Chapman, assumed she sped off on yet another one of her adventures with her boyfriend. However, hours later the body of Helen Chapman’s boyfriend was discovered by German police on the side of the road; they found a ransom letter lying on the front seat of the young man’s car.
US Army CID criminal investigator, Special Agent Jacqueline Sinclair, and DIA Agent Tom Price are assigned to take the lead in the case by her chief on request of the Provost Marshal, Agent Sinclair’s father. She knows a SIR (Serious Incident Report) already filed through channels, will attract the close attention of higher command; they would watch Sinclair every step of the way. Later, Sinclair learns that they also kidnapped three other dependent children.
Their pursuit of the kidnappers will take them straight into the heart of the military establishment where conspiracy and intrigue are commonplace . . . and where truths are seldom spoken. Worse still they uncover a more sinister and diabolical plot—a plot to set off two nuclear Smart Bombs in Pyongyang—placing the North Korean Regime and the President of the United States, in its crosshairs.
They find themselves deep in enemy territory and the target of highly trained killers tasked to threaten or even to shoot to kill—whatever it takes to conceal sensitive information. Bringing justice and staying alive becomes job number one as the duo finds their skills, and their courage tested under fire.
