Holed up in a West Texas way station after a savage Indian massacre, ex-cavalry sergeant Sean Keegan, bounty hunter Jed Breen, and ex-Texas Ranger Matt McCulloch are making good on a promise to a dead man- deliver his blood-soaked stash of $50,000 to his kin-especially when the dying man promises them five grand. The trio, soon to be known as the Jackals, aren't all that honest, but they have one thing in common- they keep their word, and they gave their word to a dying man. It's rough enough backtracking over warpath country. Worse-turns out the loot they're hauling is the stolen property of the vengeful Hawkin gang, and these prairie rats are merciless stone-cold killers. But McCulloch, Keegan, and Breen aren't riding for their own lives. They're protecting a prisoner in tow-a hot-as-a-pistol female who can shoot with the best of them. The Jackals are ready for a showdown-and may not live to spend that $5,000.… (mais)

Title: The Jackals
Author: William W. Johnstone and J. A. Johnstone
Pages: 384
Year: 2019
Publisher: Pinnacle
My rating: 5 out of 5 stars
The Jackals is the first book in a new series that brings the old west to life. Three men may be all that stand between life and death for a woman facing the gallows, a man who took money that wasn’t his and ran, and a newspaper man that enjoys smearing others.
Sam Keegan is one of the Jackals. He used to serve in the cavalry, but one decision changed that future for him. Jed Breen is a bounty hunter who has faced some hate-filled men and is very good with a gun. Then there is Matt McCulloch who is trying to find his way after losing his family. He serves as a Texas Ranger, and while on assignment his choice means he too must face a fork in the proverbial road too.
Three unlikely men hardened by life in the west must now come together and pool all their knowledge to fight against a band of Apaches that seeks to wipe them all out. Gwen Stanhope, who is facing the gallows, isn’t a wall flower. She can fight, and if the Jackals aren’t careful, they might be in her sights! Then, there is a thespian who acts insane in order to be left alive by the Indians, and his idea for getting them all out of trouble is nothing short of brilliant if not hilarious! There is a father out to get revenge for the death of his son and there are people wanting money or horses, with arrows and bullets flying! Get ready for the wild ride in the Johnstone world with The Jackals!
Read Hard. Live Free.

Three justice fighters work very hard, singularly and then together when it comes to a hair-raising opportunity. The three include an ex-Texas Ranger, Matt McCulloch, bounty hunter Jed Breen and an ex-cavalry sergeant Sean Keegan. The three definitely make an unlikely trio, but the danger they face is real, so they must work together.

Facing Apaches and a spiteful group of bandits led by Jake Hawkin are keeping them busy. Lots of shooting going on. After all, it is the Old West. After taking shelter in a stagecoach station, one of the people they run into is a man with $50,000 cash he had in his possession. The man offers the Jackals $5,000 cash if they will deliver the bundle to his wife.

The aforementioned Hawkin gang just might be more dangerous to the Jackals than the Apaches. The $50,000 was their stolen cash. They will mow down anyone in their path to get their money back. Will the three men live long enough to claim the reward? The danger is ever present as it seems the small group are on their own without any help from other sources.

This is my first ever western fiction read. The story was full of action and it put in mind the many westerns I watched while I was growing up. It was a terrific story, very descriptive and well-told, and I eagerly turned pages with bated breath to see if they would survive and end up with the reward. Although I have never read anything by William W. Johnstone, I admit to being thoroughly impressed that he has penned over 300 books. J A. Johnstone is the nephew of the prolific author. They have co-authored several books together. I look forward to my next adventure by this pair.

Many thanks to Kensington Books and to NetGalley for this ARC to review in exchange for my honest opinion. ( )
