Jack Lark is on the long and lonely road to nowhere, the battlefield behind him. But soon his soldier skill lands him a job, and a new purpose – defending a valuable wagon train of cotton as it journeys down through Texas to Mexico.
Working for another man, let alone the volatile Brannigan, isn’t going to be easy. And with the Deep South’s most infamous outlaws hot on their trail, Jack knows he is living on borrowed time.
As they cross the border, Jack quickly discovers that the usual rules of war don’t apply. He will have to fight to survive, and this time the battle might prove one he could lose.
The Lost Outlaw by Paul Fraser Collard is published in paperback on 19 March, 2020. It’s the eighth in his Jack Lark series.
