Publisher's Summary

On the West Texas border, a behemoth is bellowing smoke, fire, and death. This monster is the infamous Abaddon Cannon Foundry, whose weapons of war have spread death and destruction around the world - and made a few men in Big Buck, Texas, incredibly rich.
Now, a Mexican-born teenager has disappeared into this fortress factory where men work and sweat as slaves. This boy's sister wants to learn her brother's fate, and she just happens to know a man named Shawn O'Brien, the town tamer. Shawn rides to Texas to find the missing boy. What he discovers in Big Buck will spark a ferocious, bloody battle with the greatest evil the West ever known: masters of war who laugh in the face of anyone who defies them - until Shawn O'Brien raises his six-gun. Then the laughing stops.

Better of Dead: Shawn O'Brien, by William W. Johnstone and J. A. Johnstone.

Excellent story as all the Johnstone Brothers books are. Jack Garrett is a excellent Narrator. This is not the usual Western one is use to. Although it was a entaining story it took a turn from a western topic and went a different direction. There is still a lot of action, but in a different way. I don't think you will be disappointed unless all you like is bank hold ups, train robbing, etc. If that is the case you won't like this, but if you would like a different path for a western story then you will like this book. As always as far as I am concerned those Johnstone Brothers have a very creative mind. I am off for the next book by them on Shawn O'Brien. For mature because of violence.
