THE DRIFTER by Jake Henry

Jake Henry explains how he come up with the "Drifter".

"I guess there were a number of reasons. I always liked George G Gilman's 'Edge' series. Edge was a hard man in a turbulent time. A product of the Civil War and I think I wanted to portray Savage like that.

"He has been intrinsically affected by the Civil War and turned into a man of violence. The future he foresaw after the war eluded him and the life he'd hoped to escape hounded him. Due to circumstance, he wasn't allowed the peace he desired.

"I also wanted to write a book/series that was set in the period after the civil war. My previous books have all been set around 1880-85 and I wanted this one to be earlier when the west was still fairly young and untamed.

"And finally, I wanted a series in the style of books like 'Edge', 'Breed', 'Cuchillo Oro', 'Jubal Cade', and others.

"I'll admit that I'm aiming high and I guess the only ones who will be able to judge whether I've been successful or not will be the readers themselves.

"The first book, Savage, is really background to the man himself. It tells how and why he's come to be the man he is.

"From there, it is just one town and one adventure at a time. It is why he's the 'Drifter'. A man with a haunted past who blames himself for what happened to his wife

"No matter how far he rides, regret and death are his constant companions."

Forced into taking a job he didn't want, Jack Savage rode into a desert swarming with hostile Yavapai Indians. His mission– to find a psychotic, half-breed killer named Rios. Then Fate stepped in and dealt him a whole new hand. Savage was taken captive a small band of rebels, for whom the Civil War has never ended. Although their leader, the legendary General Jo Shelby, now wants to return to Missouri, some under his command would rather see him dead than betray their cause. Just maybe Savage can get Shelby home in one piece.

Before that can happen, however, the desert is wrenched apart by the explosive fury of the Yavapais, who are out for bloody revenge, and Savage realises he'll need all of his skill if he's not to let his bones, alongside those of the general, end up bleaching beneath a merciless sun!

In 1864, Captain Jeff Savage was tasked to find Carver's Raiders, a ruthless bunch of killers who blasted a bloody path through the Shenandoah Valley. The mission was a failure and Carver escaped with a handful of men.

Two years later John Carver has raised his head once more when he and his gang of killers robbed a bank in Summerton, Texas, and a bloodbath ensued. During the violent exchange, a young woman is taken captive—Savage's wife, Amy.

When Savage discovered her ravaged body, it set a bloody chain of events in motion.

Eight outlaws escaped the battle in Summerton, and now, armed with the names of those eight, Savage was going to finish what he started. He was going to track each man down and kill him … slowly.

The only question was: would Savage live long enough to finish what he'd started? …
