Los Angeles, 1921: Ex-Pinkerton agent Charlie Siringo is living in quiet retirement when Wyatt Earp knocks on his door and asks him to track down Earp’s missing horse. What begins as horse thievery turns into a deeper mystery as Siringo and another ex-Pinkerton, the young Dashiell Hammett, follow clues that take them from the streets of Los Angeles to Jack London’s farm. There they discover a conspiracy masterminded by the notorious and powerful Joseph P. Kennedy.
An authority on the American West, award winner Loren D. Estleman has been called the most critically acclaimed author of his generation. In Journey of the Dead, Spanish alchemist Franciso de la Zaragoza—more than a hundred years old and known as a wise man and healer—and Sheriff Pat Garrett, the man who killed Billy the Kid, meet. The men share their stories, evoking the wonder of the Old West as they wrestle with possible answers to their deepest questions.
This suspenseful courtroom drama is based on the actual historical trial of Jack McCall, who shot James Butler Hickok from that most dishonorable position - behind.
