Franks Morgan returns in William W. Johnstone's USA Today bestselling Last Gunfighter-and in his deadliest adventure yet.


Yuma Prison is a fetid hellhole filled with the dregs of humanity-killers, thieves and backstabbers who'd kill over a scrap of meat. Now it's home to Frank Morgan, who's posing as an inmate. A ruthless outlaw named Cicero McCoy has buried a fortune in stolen bank money in a harsh, desolate little piece of hell known as Ambush Valley. To get Cicero to lead him to the loot, Frank has become Cicero's new best friend behind bars-and co-plotter of a daring breakout. Soon, the last gunfighter and a stone-cold killer are blazing away at enemies on both sides of the law. Until the time comes for Frank Morgan to make a fatal choice-and for one of them to die.

I read this book because I fell in love with the character Frank Morgan from the very first book I read about him. If you have read the rest of the books in this series you will both love and hate this book. I love William W. Johstone as a writer. With that being said this is obviously not him, as he is no longer living. I'm not quite sure what he would think about what has happened to his series. The new writer just doesn't have the same writing style as him as I have noticed ever since the new writer took over the series. It seemed as if the new writer is trying to change the series into his own vision of it and is not staying true to William W. Johnstone's vision. He used the phrase 'six-gun' on several occassions which I cant recall Johnstone ever using before. But that is not the reason for the three stars that I gave. Frank Morgan is only in one chapter of the first seven chapters. In 95 pages you only get about twelve that actually have the main character in it. I read this series because of Frank Morgan, who is a wonderful character. I almost stopped reading the book I was so enraged by this. But I kept on reading and found that the story was fairly good even without Morgan in it. When Morgan did show up in the book again it was a relief to me. But I am also skeptical about the plotline of sending Morgan to prison to try and get the money back. I thought that it went against his true character and morals. The fact that he just did it for his son was a little shaky for me, when instead he should have given his son a lesson in the important things in life. This is a very action packed book that you should read only if you have read the other books in the series, other wise I might not bother with it.
