Shoot-Out at Sugar Creek



Legendary crime writer Mickey Spillane’s celebrated tin-star hero Caleb York returns in the explosive Western saga by New York Times bestselling author Max Allan Collins. This time, Sheriff York will have to keep his wits about him as he goes toe-to-toe with a powerful cattle baroness who is manipulative, clever, and out for revenge…

Sheriff Caleb York doesn’t regret taking out a drunken scoundrel with his blazing .44. But to York’s surprise, the dead man’s powerful mother, cattle baroness Victoria Drummond, barely bats an eye at the news. Instead, she asks York for a favor: help her convince Willa Cullen—the love of Caleb’s life—to sell the vast spread that Willa’s late father had carved out of the wilderness.

Willa, every bit as strong-willed as her rival, refuses to give up her land without a fight. York expects an ugly showdown, but before he can stop matters from escalating, the cattle queen sends an army of hired guns to Sugar Creek, the sole source of water available for Willa’s herd. Caught in the crossfire of a savage shoot-out between Willa’s cowboys and Victoria’s gunfighters, York will have to lay down the law—one bullet at a time—to stop an all-out war . . .
