Revered for his bestselling detective novels, Mickey Spillane originally penned The Legend of Caleb York as a film script for his friend, Hollywood legend John Wayne. In the first in a bold new Western series, Max Allan Collins, Mickey Spillane’s literary partner and executor, adapts that screenplay into a hard-hitting novel every bit as compelling as Spillane’s immortal Mike Hammer stories.
Crooked Sheriff Harry Gauge rules the town of Trinidad, New Mexico, with an iron fist. His latest scheme is to force rancher George Cullen into selling his spread and to take Cullen’s beautiful daughter Willa for his bride—whether she’s willing or not.
The old man isn’t about to go down without a fight, and he sends out a telegram to hire the west’s toughest gunslinger to kill the sheriff. But when a stranger rides into Trinidad, no one’s sure who he is. Wherever he came from, wherever he’s going, it’s deadly clear he’s a man who won’t be pushed—and that he’s a damn good shot.
With stirring authenticity and heart-racing drama, Spillane and Collins add Caleb York to the roster of unforgettable western heroes. Download and start listening now!
