Bat Masterson knew better than most of his contemporaries that the majority of what was written about the old west was little more than rattlesnake piss and bat guano. He said, ""nerve was the quality that marked the great gunfighters."" Perhaps more telling is what Masterson suggested was the ""secret sauce"" that made the big-name gunfighters so fast. ""We used to file the notch of the hammer till the trigger would pull 'sweet' which is another way of saying that the blame gun would pretty near go off if you looked at it."" But, ""the real gunfighters did not file the notches off."" They carried one gun in their hip-holster, and another ""swung under the armpit."" It let them ""draw on an adversary while he was waiting for the familiar motion toward the hip."" Here are the real stories of 23 outlaws, gunfighters, and lawmen. The truth may surprise you.

“Exquisitely funny, these letters are also an historical treasure that gives tremendous insight into the day-to-day life of a typical USAAF fighter group” (Jay A. Stout, author of Vanished Hero). Ted Fahrenwald flew P-47s and P-51s with the famed 352nd Fighter Group out of Bodney, England, during the critical tipping-point period of the air war over Europe. A classic devil-may-care fighter pilot, he was also a distinctively talented writer and correspondent. After a typical day of aerial combat and strafing missions over Nazi-occupied Europe—and of course, the requisite partying and creative mischief on base—Ted would sit in his Nissen hut at a borrowed manual typewriter and compose exquisitely humorous letters detailing his exploits in the air and on the ground to his family back home. But these letters are not the mundane missives of a homesick young man who missed his mother’s cooking. Rather, this journalistically educated and incurably comedic pilot detailed his aerial exploits in a hilarious and self-effacing style that combines the vernacular of the day with flights of joyful imagination rivaling St. Exupery. And he didn’t sanitize his letters—much. Ted enthusiastically narrates the day-to-day rollercoaster ribaldry that was the natural M.O. of the young men who were tasked to kill Hitler’s Luftwaffe. His descriptions of near-constant drinking, skirt-chasing, gambling, and out-and-out tomfoolery put the lie to the notion of the Greatest Generation as an earnest band of do-gooders. Praise for Ted Fahrenwald’s Bailout Over Normandy “A 1940s masterpiece with a heart and soul unlike anything that’s been published.” —Jay Stout, author of Fortress Ploesti “Get to know one of the more rambunctious members of the Greatest Generation with this memoir.” —Book News, Inc.

From Spur Award-winning author Mark Lee Gardner, his classic dual biography of Billy the Kid and Sheriff Pat Garrett, detailing Garrett's riveting chase of the notorious bandit--now updated with a new afterword covering new developments in the Billy the Kid story. "So richly detailed, you can almost smell the gunsmoke and the sweat of the saddles."--Hampton Sides, New York Times bestselling author Billy the Kid--a.k.a. Henry McCarty, Henry Antrim, and William Bonney--was a horse thief, cattle rustler, charismatic rogue, and cold-blooded killer. A superb shot, the Kid gunned down four men single handedly and five others with the help of cronies. Two of his victims were Lincoln County, NM, deputies, killed during the Kid's brazen daylight escape from the courthouse jail on April 28, 1881. After dspensing with his guards and filing through the chain securing his leg irons, The Kid danced a macabre jig on the jail's porch before riding away on a stolen horse as terrified townspeople--and many sympathizers--watched. For new sheriff, Pat Garrett, the chase was on . . . To Hell on a Fast Horse recreates the thrilling manhunt for the Wild West's most iconic outlaw. It is also the first "dual biography" of the Kid and Garrett, two larger-than-life figures who would not have become the stuff of legend without the other. Drawing on voluminous primary sources and a wealth of published scholarship, Mark L. Gardner digs beneath the myth to take a fresh look at these two men, their relationship, and what they would come to mean to a public enamored of a violent national past.

From The Author Of Blindsided & Time On The Wire For Will Taggert, an attorney in Orlando, Florida, it starts innocently enough. His client, Banning Sloane, CEO of Inland Bank and Trust, wants him to fly to Rio de Janerio and skipper back a repossessed luxury yacht—the Venetian. It’s a big job but not out of the ordinary for Will who routinely goes after the assets of bank customers who fail to repay their loans. Sloan glibly describes the assignment to Will as an “once-in-a-lifetime, all-expenses-paid vacation”. And it should have been. The Venetian, formerly owned by failed homebuilder and Sloane nemesis Garcia Cabrera, is a recently restored 155-ft. vintage yacht. You can almost picture elegantly dressed celebrities gathered on the ship’s fantail being served canapés and Martinis in long-stemmed glasses by tuxedoed waiters. However, from the moment Will arrives in Rio, things go dizzyingly wrong. He quickly realizes he’s been thrust into a dangerous game of betrayal driven by forces he doesn’t understand. Determined to survive, Will and his crew of three take the Venetian on an unrelenting, breathtaking battle of an ocean voyage. They’re boarded by pirates, captured by terrorists, and forced to transport suitcases full of cocaine. When one of the smugglers presses the barrel of his gun to Will’s forehead, he’s sure he’s a dead man. ‘fraid not. What they have in mind is far, far worse.
