In this action-packed Hank Fallon western, the falsely imprisoned lawman finds himself holding the keys to one of America’s most dangerous penitentiaries . . . Johnstone Country. Don’t Be a Stranger. HE’S ALWAYS ON HIS GUARD
As both a prisoner and an undercover operative, U.S. Marshal Hank Fallon has faced down some of the most vicious, terrifying, cold-blooded thieves and murderers in the West. Now, Hank is finally free and he’s got no intention of setting foot inside a jail ever again.
But the new federal prison being constructed in Leavenworth, Kansas, needs a warden and Hank is the right man for the job. He’s got the scars to prove it—and to keep the peace. But keeping these lawless hornets in their nest is no easy feat. And when several escape before Leavenworth is at maximum security, they take Hank’s family hostage.
To save his wife and baby daughter, Hank will have to get as down and dirty as the devils he’s pursuing—and they won’t be taken alive.
Live Free. Read Hard.

Being the all-around assistant, typist, researcher, and fact checker to one of the most popular western authors of all time, J.A. Johnstone learned from the master, Uncle William W. Johnstone.
He began tutoring J.A. at an early age. After-school hours were often spent retyping manuscripts or researching his massive American Western History library as well as the more modern wars and conflicts. J.A. worked hard—and learned.
“Every day with Bill was an adventure story in itself. Bill taught me all he could about the art of storytelling. ‘Keep the historical facts accurate,’ he would say. ‘Remember the readers, and as your grandfather once told me, I am telling you now: be the best J.A. Johnstone you can be.’”
