Last Stage to El Paso



From legendary Western writers William W. Johnstone and J.A. Johnstone, the fifth high-speed, blood-soaked Red Ryan adventure takes you to the lawless frontier, when every stagecoach was a moving target, every passenger needed protection, and it took a brave man with a fast draw to ride shotgun. Guarding a foolhardy troupe of performers aboard the Grey Ghost stagecoach, Red Ryan’s next—and possibly last—trip is a Wild West-style road trip across 400 deadly miles...

JOHNSTONE COUNTRY. WHERE LEGENDS DIE HARD.

Riding shotgun, Red Ryan leads a doomed stagecoach of the damned on the longest, deadliest journey of his life…

5 PASSENGERS. 400 MILES. 1,000 WAYS TO DIE.


According to local legend, the stagecoach known as the Gray Ghost is either haunted, cursed, or just plain unlucky. Each of its last three drivers and three more riding shotgun came to a violent, bloody end. And now it’s Red Ryan’s turn to guard five foolhardy passengers on the stage’s next—and possibly last—trip. The travelers are a small troupe of performers with dark histories of their own: a song-and-dance man with a drinking problem, a juggler with a secret, a knife thrower with a past, and a beautiful fan dancer who’s on the run from a one-eyed, vengeance-seeking outlaw . . .

Red’s not the superstitious type. But with Apaches on the warpath with bloodlust—and a one-eyed cutthroat killer on his trail—this 400 mile journey is like something straight out of his worst nightmare. And all the roads lead straight to hell…
