Item description for Guns (John Hardin series) by Phil Bowie...

A hot-shot pilot with a secret past, Sam Bass finds his old life intruding upon his new one, thanks to unwanted publicity following his rescue of a couple lost at sea, when a team of assassins targets him, only to kill his girlfriend, Valerie, a Cherokee widow, instead, sending a grieving Sam on a desperate quest for vengeance. Original.

Publishers Description
Sam Bass is tall and lanky, loves old western movies, wears cowboy boots and drives a beat-up Jeep Wrangler. He has a gorgeous girlfriend, Valerie, a Cherokee widow with a young son, and he's a hot shot pilot. A hot shot pilot with a past. And when Sam makes a daring and dangerous rescue of a couple lost at sea in a storm, he gets publicity he definitely doesn't need. The Cowboy, as he's known in certain circles, has finally been located and a hit team is dispatched to take care of unfinished business. A bomb is planted in the beat-up Jeep. But it isn't Sam who drives it that day. Grief stricken, Sam visits Valerie's grandfather in the North Carolina mountains to tell him he plans to avenge Valerie in the ancient Native American way of members of a wronged family seeking justice – with no help from the law. With only the old man's help, Sam trains his mind and body for the task ahead. And then the bloody hunt is on.

Reviews - What do customers think about Guns (John Hardin series)?

Great Suspense  Nov 13, 2007
GUNS is filled with interesting characters and a great plot. The writing is excellent and I would recommend this book to anyone who likes suspense. The plot takes twists and turns which makes for a real page turner. NY Times best selling author Lee Child called GUNS, " and engaging". I couldn't agree more.
Not a big fan  Aug 27, 2007
Plot was OK, but the characters never just talked. Way too frequently, they went into 2 page monolouges. The main character constantly using gunslinger aliases, kind of cheesey. I finished the book, but halfway through I was already hoping it was done, I just kept thinking it would get better. Missed a couple technical details as well, if you're going to be technical, you'd better be right.
An excellent read!  Aug 25, 2006
I enjoyed GUNS very much---the plot was fantastic, the characters interesting and "real"; an excellent read.
interesting thriller   Aug 2, 2006
Off the North Carolina coast, Coast Guard Mate Ruben Dixon calls Sam Bass to ask him to search for the Osprey caught at sea by a storm. Though the weather is horrendous Sam flies into the storm and spots the ship giving the Coast Guard the coordinates. Ralph and Adele Stilley are rescued just before their vessel sinks. Raleigh Sentinel reporter Ira Cohn and TV news anchor Samantha Blackstone were sharing a tryst on the barrier island when they heard the story. They interview Sam, who becomes a national hero.

However, instead of enjoying his fifteen minutes of fame, Sam finds his past has returned with a vengeance. Thugs arrive to kill "The Cowboy", but instead murder his beloved Valerie, a Cherokee widow and mother of a young boy. Vowing revenge, Sam travels to see Valerie's Cherokee grandfather to tell him what happened, but soon becomes a willing student to his mentor learning the old fashion Indian way of meting out justice.

GUNS comes out of the gate on all cylinders as the mysterious Bass saves the lives of the Stilleys and keeps the fast pace going until the final avenging confrontation occurs even with sidebars involving aircraft, gun running and the Cherokee Nation. The cast is solid especially Sam, but when Phil Bowie dwells on his past, the story line loses some momentum though it also explains why he is a target. Still this is an interesting thriller starring a fascinating laconic protagonist who's obsessed with a bloodthirsty mission.
