From the winner of the 2007 Spur Award for Best Paperback Original for The Horse Creek Incident , comes a story of a man who stood up for the law--and the criminal that made him the man he is
As the new sheriff of Yellowstone County, Montana, ex-rancher Herschel Baker cleaned up the badlands with the weight of the law behind himand the weight of a six-gun at his side. Now, he's trying to solve a deadly puzzle that involves one lead-laden corpse, a large sum of missing cash, and a loose end that points to cattle rustling. But his trouble hasn't even arrived yet.
There's a hard-as-nails, border-hopping horse-thief riding up from Mexico. He's bringing a woman on the run, a body count of criminals he's killed for bounty, and a gun hand as hard and quick as Herschel's. Because this man is no simple robber, shootist, or brigand for hire. His name is Thurman Baker.
