One of the greatest western authors of all time, superstar pulpsmith Max Brand, the pen name of Frederick Faust, was an incredibly proficient author who wrote many books, stories, and even poetry. His Westerns were always different, with complex plots and characters, and uncertain endings... But his historical adventures rank among the best stories he ever wrote. These seven stories of 16th Century Italian Renaissance swashbuckling swordsman Tizzo are tightly-plotted, action-packed adventures which were rarely equaled in quality by Brand’s contemporaries. It collects the final four stories: „The Cat and the Perfume”, „Claws of the Tigress”, „The Bait and the Trap” and „The Pearls of the Bonfadini”.
