In every democracy the laws for the protection of the innocent allows loopholes through which the guilty can slip ...
The Governor of Texas decided that only unconventional methods could cope with the malefactors who slipped through the meshes of the law and so was formed a select group of Texas Rangers. Picked for their courage, honesty and devotion to justice, they were known as Company Z ...
With one exception, every man in Company Z had been a member of the Texas Rangers for several years. Alvin Fog was that man. He had inherited the muscles, skill at gun-handling and bare-handed fighting of his grandfather, the legendary Rio Hondo gun wizard, Dusty Fog. But his fellows in Company Z were not convinced he had the skill needed for their unconventional duties. It was up to him to prove he was worthy of his place in Company Z. Only he alone could truly become ... Alvin Fog, Texas Ranger!

Originally published under the title YOU'RE A TEXAS RANGER, ALVIN FOG

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.
