Nueces Justice features Texas Ranger Captain Luke Dunn, whose life becomes forever etched by the vast prairies of the Nueces Strip of 1856. The Rangers had been defunded, but Dunn’s call to duty wouldn’t let him quit. His quest for bringing lawbreakers to justice creates a cycle of hunters becoming the hunted, as cattle thieves, whores, murderers, and Comanche are woven into this tale of the Texas frontier that stretches from Corpus Christi to Laredo. Everything converges in little Nuecestown, Texas.
