Gunman’s Reputation Synopses: In Gunman’s Song by Ralph Cotton (book 1 of the series), Larry Shaw once enjoyed being the quickest gun around, but now he prefers to tell his stories rather than living them. But just because he doesn’t want trouble, it doesn’t mean trouble doesn’t want him. He’s got gunmen after him, and gamblers wagering $5,000 on the one who will finally best him.

In Between Hell and Texas by Ralph Cotton (book 2 of the series), Cray Dawson gets his reputation boosted after taking out the Talbert Gang. But he himself doesn’t think of himself as a shootist. He simply wants to go back to Somos Santos, Texas and live a normal life. But now Somos Santos has changed. There’s a new sheriff named Lematte, and the only law he keeps is his own. Along with a gang of outlaws working as deputies, Lematte is ruling the town with an iron fist… until Cray decides to do something about it.
