There's more magic and mayhem to be had in the second volume of this fantasy Western series from the team that brought you The Sixth Gun! In a time of great magical upheaval, a group of disparate outsiders were brought together to defeat the Hunter--a creature of apocalyptic power.

Are they done with each other? Or will their roads converge again?
Crispin Mayo was a stranger to the law of the gun. He had come west from Ireland to seek his fortune--one man with nothing but his fists to protect him. What he found instead was trouble. A cutthroat band of Confederate renegades were planning a train kidnapping. It was none of Mayo's business--until the desperate plea of a lady changed his mind. Soon the diehard rebels would be very sorry indeed they'd ever crossed paths with the lone man from Skibbereen.
No writer chronicles the battles of misfits, underdogs and renegades like Elmore Leonard ... VALDEZ IS COMING is a stunning stale of morality and justice in which a simple, honest man is transformed into a killer - and begins a long journey of revenge against those who scarred his soul for ever. Elmore Leonard's Western novels stand as some of the most vivid writing of his career. With all of his trademark sharp dialogue and set against a beautifully evoked landscape, this is a classic work that captures the wild and glorious spirit of the American West.
Written in the newly recognized nonfiction genre of historical reconstruction, "Who Killed Chester Pray?" transports the reader to a last, grand hurrah of the American West. Seeking his fortune in the early 1900s, young prospector-assayer Chester Pray filched a Nevada sheriff's horses, stole gold belonging to a U.S. Senator, and ultimately discovered one of the richest lodes ever in Death Valley. Then, Pray was shot dead in the night.
By who? Why? As many as seven individuals had ample cause to kill Chester Pray. His new partners? Gunslinger "Diamondfield Jack"? Even pretty Clara, his fianc???e? The psychologically compelling answer is not what you would expect.
""Who Killed Chester Pray?" provides new and revealing information about one of Death Valley's most provocative unsolved mysteries. Author Nicholas Clapp's intensive research and use of a flowing narrative result in a wonderfully readable book that not only probes the dark side of human nature, but presents an exciting picture of the American mining West of the early 20th century."--Linda Greene, coauthor, "A History of Mining in Death Valley National Monument"
