1: THE ENFORCER

The Bannerman business empire spread right across the west, but Yancey Bannerman, the oldest son of magnate C.B. Bannerman, wasn't interested in all that wealth—at least, not if he had to sit behind a pile of ledgers and accounts to earn it. Yancey preferred the wide-open, adventurous life … and that was why C.B. disowned him.

To C.B.'s way of thinking, Yancey was little more than a black sheep. And anyway, he had another son, Chuck, and a daughter named Mattie, to rely on. But C.B. should have looked a little closer to home to find the real black sheep of the family. Chuck was up to his eyes in gambling debts, and that made him a desperate man … just desperate enough to try robbing the Governor of Texas himself!

Before he knew it, Yancey and his gun-swift partner, Johnny Cato, found themselves involved a plot to oust Governor Lester Dukes from power … and by the end of it, each man had himself a new job—as one of the Governor's go-anywhere, fight-anyone peacekeepers … the Enforcers.

2: RIDE THE LAWLESS LAND

Twenty one thousand dollars … to get their hands on it, Reno Slade and his gang killed two innocent people and then high-tailed it into the Indian Territory. But they hadn't reckoned on Sven Johansen's daughter Anya, who would stop at nothing to bring her parents' killers to justice.

She knew exactly the way to do it, too. She'd heard of Governor Dukes' two "enforcers", Yancey Bannerman and Johnny Cato. Though based in Texas, she knew they could flout jurisdiction and state lines, and ride the lawless land until the account with Slade was settled in blood.

She wanted that above all else. And nothing was going to stop her from being in at the kill!

3: THE GUNS OF TEXAS

The cold-blooded murder of rancher Abe Summers led to a surprising discovery—a long-lost treasure of Spanish reàls, escudos, doubloons and pieces of eight!

Abe's land-grabbing neighbour, Nathan Cross, wanted that treasure all to himself, and was prepared to have his hired gun, Lang Brodie, kill to get it.

But then Governor Dukes got involved, and quickly discovered that the coins were only half the story. There was something else still waiting to be unearthed, a treasure of far greater value than the coins …
So Dukes sent his two top Enforcers, Yancey Bannerman and Johnny Cato, down to the Sabine River country to help Abe's college professor daughter find … The Guns of Texas!

4: A GUN FOR THE GOVERNOR

Twenty years earlier, Governor Lester Dukes had helped found the town of Rifle Ridge, Texas. The move had had him popular with many … but a hated enemy to others. Along the way, Dukes had punished the wealthy ranchers who had grabbed millions of acres illegally by raising a land tax. Now, the town was about to celebrate its anniversary, and Governor Dukes was going to be the guest of honor. But for some, Dukes' visit was an opportunity to settle old scores.

Suspecting a possible assassination attempt, the Governor sent out his best Enforcers, Yancey Bannerman and Johnny Cato, to check out Rifle Ridge before he arrived. He didn't dream that one of them would end up being buried alive, while the other would build the very weapon that would be used to kill him!

5: ROGUE GUN

After Yancey Bannerman, Johnny Cato was the best Enforcer Governor Dukes had. Johnny might like good whiskey and bad women, but he was hell with the hide off when it came to putting away the bad guys.

But Johnny was a man with a secret. No matter the game, no matter how steep the odds, he just couldn't resist the lure of the cards. And that gambling habit got him into debt, big-time, with some mighty shady characters.

Then the unthinkable happened. Johnny and Yancey came to blows over Johnny's problem, and the one-time gunsmith quit the Enforcers about thirty seconds before Governor Dukes could fire him. Johnny warned Bannerman that the next time they met, it would be through gunsmoke. Yancey believed him. But they'd been through so much together, he felt obliged to give Johnny one more chance to come good.

Big mistake…
