1 y separately published work icon Longhorns and Blood Jake Henry , London : Piccadilly Publishing , 2018 18783770 2018 single work novel western 'The trail north was littered with longhorns and blood …
'When Savage arrived in Deadman he made two mistakes. He interfered with Josiah Breen’s plans to steal a fifty-thousand-dollar herd of Longhorns, and then slept with the man’s wife. 'Both were unforgivable.
'It was enough to make Breen shoot him … twice!
'When Savage finally came to, the herd was gone, along with the dead owner’s daughter.
'Now it was the Drifter’s turn to get good and mad. The first thing he did was assemble a crew of rustlers and misfits to go after Breen and his band of cutthroats. Men who could shoot and weren’t afraid of being shot at.
'As it turns out, getting the cattle back was the easy part. Staying alive until they reached their payday was a whole other story.' (Publication summary)
1 y separately published work icon Bring Me His Head! Jake Henry , London : Piccadilly Publishing , 2017 18783577 2017 single work novel western 'Savage would rain hell down on a crazed man with a sickness that only a bullet would cure!
He was no sooner back on the trail when he was forced to kill three redneck hillbillies who’d bitten off more than they could chew.
'It was just the beginning, for Cochise had a mission for him and lives depended upon it.
'Years before had seen the cold-blooded murder of one of the Apache people’s most revered chiefs. Mangas Coloradas. Those responsible had desecrated the body and took the chief’s head.
'Now the Apaches want it back and if Savage doesn’t do as they ask, they will kill their prisoners.
'The trail leads him to Fort McLane, which has been reopened and is garrisoned by militia under the command of Brigadier General John Walker; one of the most sadistic sonsofbitches that the Drifter has ever come across.
'Walker is a collector unlike any he’s ever seen. He collects heads, and just maybe, he has what Savage is looking for.' (Publication summary)
1 y separately published work icon Kill the Tin Star! Jake Henry , London : Piccadilly Publishing , 2017 18783435 2017 single work novel western 'The badge was a target on his chest …
'They warned Savage not to take the short cut through Dead Man’s Gulch. Too many Apaches, they said. But Savage wanted to get to Albuquerque and that was the quickest route.
The warning, however, failed to mention anything about Craig and Bobby Vandal. Father and son. One a cold killer. The other, prepared to do anything for his boy.
When Savage arrived in the Gulch, the local sheriff had Bobby locked up on a murder charge. Craig Vandal swore his son would never hang, and before long, a deputy’s badge had been pinned to Savage’s chest and he held a smoking hot Winchester in his hands.
'From there, the trail of dead was bound to lead to Savage.
'One thing was certain, for many years to come, the citizens of Dead Man’s Gulch would remember the man called DRIFTER!' (Publication summary)
1 y separately published work icon A Gun for Shelby Jake Henry , Australia : Jake Henry , 2017 18783061 2017 single work novel western

'Forced into taking a job he didn’t want, Savage rode into a desert swarming with hostile Yavapai Indians. His mission—to find a psychotic, half-breed killer named Rios. Then Fate stepped in and dealt him a whole new hand. Savage was taken captive a small band of rebels, for whom the Civil War has never ended. Although their leader, the legendary General Jo Shelby, now wants to return to Missouri, some under his command would rather see him dead than betray their cause. Just maybe Savage can get Shelby home in one piece. Before that can happen, however, the desert is wrenched apart by the explosive fury of the Yavapais, who are out for bloody revenge, and Savage realizes he’ll need all of his skill if he’s not to let his bones, alongside those of the general, end up bleaching beneath a merciless sun!'

The mission was a failure and Carver escaped with a handful of men. Two years later John Carver has raised his head once more when he and his gang of killers robbed a bank in Summerton, Texas, and a bloodbath ensued. During the violent exchange, a young woman is taken captive—Savage's wife, Amy. When Savage discovered her ravaged body, it set a bloody chain of events in motion. Eight outlaws escaped the battle in Summerton, and now, armed with the names of those eight, Savage was going to finish what he started. He was going to track each man down and kill him … slowly. The only question was: would Savage live long enough to finish what he'd started? '
