Summary

Summary

Two of Matt Braun's most beloved novels--now newly repackaged as a 2-in-1!

In The Spoilers, private detective Luke Starbuck has been hired to ferret out the Judas working for the Central Pacific-a mastermind behind a string of train robberies. The target: gold shipments from the Frisco mint. All Starbuck has to do is pass himself off as an outlaw and infiltrate the pack...

But chumming up to a gang leader like Denny O'Brien means that Starbuck must follow him into the vice pits of the notorious Barbary Coast. Getting inside this hellhole of crime is dangerously easy if you make the right moves. Make the wrong ones, and getting out could be murder...

In The Warlords, It's 1915. In Europe, men are dying in trenches. In Washington, sentiment is growing for war against the Kaiser. And in Mexico, an explosive plot is set in motion by a German agent, a deposed dictator, and an army of murderous rebels.

Amidst the chaos of Pancho Villa's revolution, a force of embittered Tejanos has crossed the Rio Grande, burning ranches, killing Texans, and gathering fighters in its wake. For the Germans, the goal is to paralyze America. For a daring Special Agent and a Texas Ranger, the mission is to go deep behind enemy lines and cut out the heart of an astounding conspiracy--before the West is drawn into a bloody war of its own...
