Time To Prey by Frank Kane

Time To Prey
by Frank Kane

"This isn't the place to talk," the Chinese girl murmured.
Liddel smiled "Then let's think of better things to do."

It wasn’t his case…his girl…or his problem…but Johnny Liddell had a personal interest in this little caper.

He didn’t ask to be the Feds’ “receiver” on a pass of inside info on the smuggling racket, but he was. He didn’t ask to have a couple of hoods beat the living daylights out of him to get the info back, but they did. As a matter of fact, for the first time in his life, Johnny Liddell wasn’t asking for trouble.

But when a lovely doll invited him to see her later, and murder turned later into never again, Johnny asked in—in to the bloody end.

The Cheyenne Payoff by Chet Cunningham

The Cheyenne Payoff
by Chet Cunningham

Cheyenne is a rough and tumble town, grown up from a hell on wheels intercontinental railroad berg full of hustlers, con men, and ladies of the night. And if you want to stay alive, it's a sharp eye and a fast draw.

Brad Spear came to Cheyenne to find a missing man. Instead, he discovered a burned-out saloon, a dry gulch where men staggered to their death in the scorching sun. A defrocked priest, a killer and rapist whose private hell led him to torture and deception. And an evil so intense it gnawed at the lives of men and women throughout the territory.

But in Cheyenne he also found Lady Jane. Beautiful, sensuous, a woman who could destroy a man or make him love her. Her methods were learned on the streets of London and perfected in the frontier town of Cheyenne. With the help of this remarkable woman, Brad Spear must overturn one of the most powerful conspiracies of the Old West
