  • Montana Nemesis

    Originally published 9th December 1960.

    Introducing Mex Jaurez. The business model was simple, brutal and effective: Red Hanson, hand in glove with a double–dealing Land Agent, sold land to settlers looking for good graze…but then his killer crew started to prod and push until the settlers were glad to sell back at give–away prices.

    Originally published 3rd August 1962.

    The first Clint Bellamy/Mex Jaurez adventure.  Clint Bellamy struck Butte County just as the peace enjoyed by the Randall–Houston combine is shattered. Rustling, bank robbery and murder are the unwelcome visitors and Clint is in just the wrong place each time. Not only that, but his face looks mighty familiar – there it is on one of the sheriff’s dodgers, Dill Hankin, wanted for murder. It looks as though Clint is guilty as hell.

  • Mochita Stage

    Originally published 1st September 1964.

    Abe Marsh has Blundell sewn up and, as top dog, he doesn’t see why things should change any.

The man who killed his brother.

  • Rogue Ramrods

    Originally published 25th June 1965.

    A Clint Bellamy/Mex Jaurez adventure. When Matt Nugent’s money was stolen in a deadly bank robbery, it looked like the end for his ranch. The money was owed to Lew Dillon.

    Sheridan’s Light Horse, led by its amoral leader, Major Tim McCord, brought terror to Southern families during the Civil War.

Putting the stage out of business was the simple answer and saving it embroiled Mark in a whole heap of complications.
