Summary
A powerful novel of vengeance and regret set against the dramatic backdrop of the Texas border wars  The powerful Mexican landowner De Gorios is notorious on both sides of the Rio Grande. In order to add to his already-vast wealth, he regularly sends raiders north of the border to burn, plunder, and kill. But when De Gorios's marauders swoop down on John Killane's property, set it ablaze, and murder Killane's brother, the taciturn Texan vows revenge.   Aided by his fellow ranchers, Killane slips into Mexico and prepares an assault on De Gorios's hacienda. Violence leaves a bitter taste in his mouth, and the motives of his backers may not be as transparent as they first appeared, but Killane has made a promise that he would rather die than break. If he cannot summon the courage and the coldness to act, he might just get his wish.   From the groundbreaking author of The Hell Bent Kid, one of the most acclaimed Westerns ever published, The Taste of Infamy is both a thrilling novel of adventure and a stunning morality tale
