The Killing

(Book 22 in the Jess Williams Western series)
A novel by

Jess is on the hunt again for wanted men with bounty on their heads. His work is interrupted by the men that Rod Mercer keeps hiring to kill him as revenge for killing his brother. Jess sends a wire to Rod Mercer, warning him to remove the blood bounty on his head, but Mercer won't relent.

After Jess deals with Rod Mercer and the last man hired to kill him, he receives an urgent wire from his good friend Mayor Jim Smythe in Black Creek, Kansas. The wire doesn't explain the reason why, but that he is needed back in Black Creek as soon as he can get there.

Once Jess arrives in Black Creek, Mayor Jim Smythe explains why he sent for him. Three Mormon families who lived just outside of Black Creek have been murdered and butchered alive, including ten young children. The leader of the group of outlaws responsible is Avery Sutton.

Jess stands at the sixteen freshly dug graves and makes them a solemn promise to hunt down and kill the six men responsible for their horrific deaths. He leaves Black Creek on the hunt for Avery Sutton and his other five men and he won't rest until every last one of them pays the ultimate price for their heinous crimes. Before it's over, a lot of bullets fly and a lot of men die.
