Publisher's Summary

In 1879, Steve Dancy sells his New York shop and ventures west to explore and write a journal about his adventures. Though he's not looking for trouble, Dancy's infatuation with another man's wife soon embroils him in a deadly feud with Sean Washburn, a Nevada silver baron. Infuriated by the outrages of two hired thugs, the shopkeeper kills both men in an impulsive street fight.

Dancy believes this barbarian act has closed the episode. He is wrong. He has interfered with Washburn's ambitions, and this is something the mining tycoon will not allow. Pinkertons, hired assassins, and aggrieved bystanders escalate the feud until it pulls in all the moneyed interests and power brokers in Nevada. Can the former city slicker settle accounts without losing his life in the process?

    "A well written western!"

    This is a great audiobook series. This book is well narrated and keeps you hooked until the end. The author really researched his material well and brings not only realism but suspenseful story that keeps you guessing all the way trough. I can't wait until I listen to the next book in the series.

    I have had audible now for about 8 months and have enjoyed expanding my reading into books I would have not read before!

    Story
    "A great western with plenty of surprises!"
    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The main character in the book has plenty of surprises as the author reveals who he is. I listened to the two books available here on audio, and then read the last two books. The author may write more as he has left plenty of room for it and it has been written recently.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When this man defends the honor of a lady in a town that is abused by a pair of bullies.


    Any additional comments?

    Highly recommend this book series - if you like Louis L'Amour books or William Johnstone, you will like this!
