Summary

On the wild Western frontier, the three men known as the Jackals stand between the law and the lawless - delivering their own brand of justice with a fast draw, dead aim, and enough bullets to populate Boot Hill.

Johnstone Territory. Where death rides hard.

Apache renegade Bloody Hand plays a role in each of the Jackals' lives. To bounty hunter Jed Breen, he is man with a price on his head. To retired cavalry sergeant Sean Keegan, he is a cellmate after a drunken brawl. And to former Texas Ranger Matt McCulloch, he is the key to a mystery that has long haunted him.

When McCulloch breaks Bloody Hand out of jail, his fellow Jackals follow them into Mexico. Now, all four are wanted men. The US Army and bounty hunters cross the Rio Grande in pursuit. Awaiting them south of the border are Mexican rurales led by Confederate expatriate Major Block Frazer, seeking revenge against Bloody Hand.

But nothing will stop McCulloch from completing his mission - to save his daughter from the Apache band that abducted her years before. Outnumbered and outgunned, the Jackals will stand together to free McCulloch's daughter - or end up hung, drawn, and quartered.

Good but many repetitive names.

Liked the storyline but aggravated by how many times the long Mexican names were repeated when they had been translated at least twice already.
