(1974)
(Book 33 in the Floating Outfit series)
A novel by

 
 
In 1873 Sebastian Lerdo de Tejada became President of Mexico. In the same year the Colt factory at Hartford, Connecticut, produced a new revolver. They called it the Model P and gave no thought to a better name. It became the best and most reliable fighting handgun of its age, rugged, powerful and hard hitting. Dusty Fog bought a matched brace of the new Colts ...
Down in Mexico there was trouble, and an old friend of the Ysabel Kid disappeared, believed murdered by the revolutionaries. That brought Dusty Fog, Mark Counter, the Ysabel Kid and Waco into Mexico. When they returned, those new Colt guns bore a name - men called them the Peacemakers....

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.
