(Book 21 in the Making of America series)
A novel by Lee Davis Willoughby (William L DeAndrea, Richard Deming and Richard Laymon)
John Faust, huge and powerful, a sometime bareknuckle prize-fighter, ready to mortgage his soul for the black gold locked beneath the hardscrabble Texas soil - ready to destroy his own son for the one woman that could never be his. Brom Torgeson, deadly as a rattlesnake, he struck it rich early in the game, but nothing would satisfy him until he has brought his sworn enemy, John Faust, to his knees - with the cruelest weapon ever fashioned by mortal man. Bryna Torgeson, elusive and beautiful, she ruled these mighty men, giving her body to the son and her promise to the father - but always holding back the one thing more precious than the black treasure that drove men mad with desire.
