Calamity, Mark and Belle

(Texas Trio)
(The first book in the Calamity Jane series)
A novel by

Mark Counter had an eye for a beautiful woman - and he was always willing to go to the assistance of a lady in distress. But whilst handling a chore for his boss, Ole Devil Hardin, he met two ladies who came close to making him change his ways...
The first's name was Martha Jane Canary. Her problem was comparatively simple - she needed help to raise the wheel of her wagon. The second lady's difficulties were of a more dangerous nature - she was the lady outlaw, Belle Starr. There were ruthless bounty hunters on her trail who aimed to collect the reward for her dead body...
Mark wanted to help but thought he would keep the ladies apart. But Belle and Calamity had different ideas. When they met, the fur began to fly - and Mark was caught up in the middle of the battle!

J.T. Edson was a former British Army dog-handler who wrote more than 130 Western novels, accounting for some 27 million sales in paperback. Edson's works - produced on a word processor in an Edwardian semi at Melton Mowbray - contain clear, crisp action in the traditions of B-movies and Western television series. What they lack in psychological depth is made up for by at least twelve good fights per volume. Each portrays a vivid, idealized "West That Never Was", at a pace that rarely slackens.
