Description

In the third installment of the international award-winning series by John Layne comes a story that reunites the justice-seeking duo of Luxton Danner and Wes Payne for their toughest test yet.

A ruthless land baron with visions of turning a quiet settlement into a raucous boomtown besieges the peaceful town of Canyon Creek. Gilford Knox set his sights on devouring every inch of land in and near Canyon Creek, employing threats and violent tactics to force out vulnerable ranchers, farmers, and proprietors. Soon, Knox held businesses occupy half the town as he pressures the remaining proprietors to sell or suffer the consequences.

When Knox builds a rowdy saloon, mercantile, hotel, and bawdy house, an old friend summons Danner and Payne, who bring their gunslinging brand of justice to quell Knox and his renegades. Joined by a quartet of former Buffalo Soldiers, a gun-toting farm girl, and a mysterious young gunfighter, Danner and Payne set out to do what they do best, defend Canyon Creek or die trying.

In the third installment of the international award-winning series by John Layne comes a story that reunites the justice-seeking duo of Luxton Danner and Wes Payne for their toughest test yet.

Return to Canyon Creek is a page-turner! Layne places the reader into fiery action from the get-go and leaves him breathless for more at its conclusion. Entertaining in the classic mode, reading John Layne makes me reminisce for my father's Louis L'Amours.”
– Jane Little Botkin, Author and Two-Time Western Writers of America Spur Award Winner

“Layne deftly weaves his characters and their individual stories into a larger-than-life panora-ma called the Texas Panhandle.”
– Jane Little Botkin, Author and Two-Time Western Writers of America Spur Award Winner

“John Layne brings another great western book to life with a clear understanding of the dangers and the harsh life a person faced in 1878 Texas. As you read this captivating story of good vs greed, you will begin to anticipate the unavoidable gun battle that is brewing. Although shots have been fired, and threats made, you wonder what will be the final match that will light the powder keg, and who will ultimately prevail.”
