Publisher's Summary

America's greatest Western storytellers begin the explosive new legend of Will Tanner, a US deputy marshal who will risk everything to save a friend, and bring two desperados to justice....

The train grinds to a halt somewhere in the Indian Nations, and the bandits get onboard. They take everything on the train worth stealing and gun down a guard to make their escape - just another notch on the belt for Ben Trout and Zack Larsen, two of the most savage killers in the west. US Deputy Marshal Ed Pine follows them to Muskogee. There the trail runs cold, and Ed Pine diappears. To save his friend, Deputy Will Tanner rides for Muskogee, where justice extends only as far as the range of a Colt .45.

Tanner earned his badge in a blistering gunfight, when he got the drop on a trio of killers and saved the life of another fellow marshal. Now, he'll have to be just as quick - and just as deadly. To bring in Trout and Larsen, Tanner must set his badge aside and resort to the law of the gun.

Gripping

The book is written by J. A. Johnstone (William Johnstone’s nephew) as William Johnstone died in 2004. This is book two in the Will Tanner Series. The book is well written and is non-stop action. Will is after two train robbers. This is a good old fashion western where everything is black and white; there is no gray area. Also, there is no foul language or steamy sex scenes. If you are looking for a quick fun read, give this book a try.

The book is eight hours and twenty-one minutes. Eric Michael Summerer does a good job narrating the story. Summerer is a voice-over artist and audiobook narrator.

GREAT BOOK!!

loved the series. The best part is when Will Tanner is on a man hunt. I love how the story has a little of Wills personal life and Deputy life is crazy cool. I get a great visual while I'm working. The narrator is great for me. I have listened to this series twice so far don't doubt that I will listen a 3rd time.

I'm excited to continue the journey!

Will Tanner is turning out to be a pretty good law man. I like the fact that there is minimal cussing and clear details.

Great Story

Great sequel to the first book. Easy to follow and doesn't ramble like some stories. Will Tanner is all business and no monkey business.
