THE GUNSMITH by J.R. ROBERTS

For over 30 years Robert Randisi has been writing The Gunsmith series as "J.R. Roberts," for The Berkley Publishing Group. It began in January of 1982, during a time when "Adult" westerns flooded the market, and has been appearing monthly since then. What's an Adult Western? It's a western novel with sex in it. That's right, the cowboy has sex with women. A new idea? Probably not, but heretofore this had not been seen in western novels (certainly not by Max Brand, Zane Grey, Owen Wister or Louis L'Amour). What these books actually showed was that men and women really did have sex in the old west. Read RJR's article about this subject.
Berkley Publishing Group ceased publication of The Gunsmith at #399 and Piccadilly Publishing picked up the series from #400 onwards. And will continue to publish one title per month to maintain the continuity. Tony Masero, who created the covers for PP's versions of the Giant Gunsmith books, released as Clint Adams, The Gunsmith, continues the tradition of adult covers for the series.
THIS SERIES CONTAINS ADULT CONTENT

422: DEADLY AMBUSH

Clint Adams and Kate Avery hit it off from the start. She was all woman, with a particularly lusty appetite for The Gunsmith.
Then Kate was shot dead right before Clint's eyes, and he vowed to scour the town of Hancock, Arizona, until he found her killer and discovered why someone, somewhere, wanted her dead.
On the surface, Kate had appeared been a simple businesswoman who ran a hat shop. But as Clint dug deeper he found that a far dirtier business—and even dirtier sex—might be at the bottom of the murder. With the aid of a beautiful saloon owner and a dedicated lawman, Clint set out to nail the killer before he could strike again.

421: CALAMITYTOWN

In Boulder, Colorado, Clint Adams ran into his old friend Martha 'Calamity Jane' Canary. Now in her late thirties, Jane was married and running a boarding house. But staying on as one of Jane's guests brought back memories Deadwood, South Dakota in 1876, when their friend Wild Bill Hickok was shot in the back and killed. It seemed that the past wouldn't stay buried, and just to prove it, violent death suddenly reared its ugly head all over again. The Boulder Police Department asked Clint to help solve the murder, but he had his hands full just dealing with a gunfighter who was determined to meet him through gunsmoke. Still, when Clint wasn't bedding the ladies—including Calamity Jane herself—he set out to find Boulder's mysterious killer … and the answer he came up with surprised even The Gunsmith himself.

Clint had to get the wagon through some rough country and hold it against the robbers who were set on taking it for themselves. And when he finally discovered the true nature of the cargo, he found himself in a most unusual position—stealing the very wagon he'd just got through protecting!
