For years, Virgil Cole and Everett Hitch have ridden roughshod over rabble-rousers and gun hands in troubled towns like Appaloosa, Resolution, and Brimstone. Now, newly appointed as territorial marshalls, they find themselves traveling by train through the Indian Territories.
Their first marshaling duty starts out as a simple mission: to escort Mexican prisoners to the border. But when the governor of Texas, his wife, and his daughters climb aboard with their bodyguards and $500,000 in tow, their journey suddenly becomes a lot more complicated.
The problem is Bloody Bob Brandice. He and Virgil have had it out before, an encounter that left Brandice face-down in the street with two .44 slugs lodged in him. Now, 12 years later, on a night train struggling uphill in a thunderstorm, Brandice is back - and he's not alone.
Cole and Hitch find themselves in the midst of a heist with a horde of very bad men, two beautiful young hostages, and a man with a vendetta he's determined to carry out.

I'd recommend this to anyone who likes westerns.
very engaging story, interesting characters, fascinating detail
no, I just liked it.
A solid no nonsense story. A very easy to follow and enjoyable listening experience. I enjoyed this novel as much or perhaps even more than than Robert Parker stories about the same heroes.
Currently a local truck driver who has hours to listen to my audio books. I am hooked, some of my fellow drivers enjoy them also
Yes, it is a great story with a few twist and these two have a knack for trouble finding them no matter where they go
The runaway train was prettey interesting
Mr Welliver is a true pro who brings all his characters to life.A very fine job
The rescue was moving and other parts where stirring also
