Nolan Crosson knows all too well that trouble lies ahead—the kind of trouble that can land a man six feet under. The murderous gangs he is trailing for the army is stealing women. So far, all the bodies they’ve buried along this bloody path have been men and children.
A hound dog is exactly what Nolan has been called by many, sought out by the army for his reputation of always treeing his man. Except Nolan didn’t count on finding a witness of Nolan’s past. A distraction that might get them all killed.
After witnessing his father’s hanging, JESSE ADAMS inherits a whole lot of trouble. Never has he dreamed of owning a cattle spread. Four hundred prime acres and just as many fat, stolen cows to go with it.
From the age of sprout, Jesse has worked to throw Pa’s reputation off his back. At seventeen, he is no longer a boy. His fists are strong, and there isn’t a thing he can’t hit when he aims his Winchester.
The outlaw Jesse is hunting will not go down without a fight—a fight that will surely leave one of them dead. Jesse’s one ally is the famous lawman, Nolan Crosson. Only, Nolan’s son, an ornery little cuss of a boy, sure does know how to rub Jesse the wrong way.
