Ded Axton and Nate Walker grow up in West Texas as best friends. They serve as irregulars in the Civil War, robbing trains and generally disrupting Union activities. When the war ends, Nate wants to continue as an outlaw, while Ded, who has no more to go home to than Nate, refuses. The gang casts him out, and Ded falls into near dissolution, but he never loses his sense of right and wrong. Before the gang can complete a bank robbery, he turns in Nate and his crew, and they’re sent to prison. Later, still, on the mend in life, Ded becomes an Episcopal priest, but Nate gets out of jail and slaughters Ded’s wife and child. Ded becomes a legendary bounty hunter, wandering the West, saying a prayer for every man he kills. After a time, his thoughts of revenge become meaningless, and he settles down as a cook in a little café, making friends almost despite himself. Then his quiet, contemplative life changes once again in this entertaining western from the veteran Vaughan. --John Mort

HEAT RATING: SWEET
REVIEWED BY: AprilR, Review courtesy of My Book Addiction and More
Westerns are certainly a genre that have fallen by the wayside. The old stories of men on horseback, challenging others to a duel, riding around the country seeking revenge on the people who have wronged them somehow. Well, guess what ladies and gentlemen ... if Robert Vaughan has any say-so, the Westerns genre will be making a comeback.
When Hell Came to Texas is reminiscent of the old westerns my grandfather would read. I really thought this book was a re-print from a previously written book from years ago, but I was wrong. This is brand-spanking new and I couldn't be more excited!
Ken Casey wants to live a normal, quiet life in a small town. Unfortunately, everywhere he seems to go there always seems to be someone who recognizes him and wants to involve him in some drama. Ken Casey is a man full of secrets and of surprises. He doesn't allow anyone close to him emotionally, which can lead to a lonely existence. When his employer and his daughter are threatened, Ken gets involved and takes care of business.
I do hope Robert Vaughan continues to write Westerns. If he does, the forgotten-about genre will definitely get a much-needed revival. If you miss reading the westerns written by Louis L'amour, Zane Grey, or any other similar authors, then you need to give When Hell Came to Texas a try. It will transport you back in time.
