The Colt and the Sabre

(The tenth book in the Civil War series)
A novel by

The Confederacy needs arms. And greedy European merchants are demanding gold for their goods. Though gold may be scarce in Dixie, there's no shortage of courage. Belle Boyd, beautiful rebel spy, joins Dusty Fog in a daring plot to finance a shipment of rifles with stolen Yankee dollars. Together, Dusty and Belle trade gunfire with Union troops - and cross swords with the most treacherous collection of riffraff ever to fall below the Mason-Dixon Line...

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.
