Publisher's Summary

The masters of American frontier storytelling return with the saga of a bold, fearless western legend.

When you're a gun for hire, the difference between right and wrong is settled with a bullet....

Crater City, New Mexico, is a bustling mining town brimming with the stench of men hungry to get rich the old fashioned way - by killing the competition. Dennis Conroy is the owner of the biggest saloon in town, and he needs a few good sharpshooters to help protect surveyors laying out a route for a spur line before his rival Hugh Thornton beats him to it. 

Joe Buckhorn's handy with a gun, so he takes the job. Against his best advice, he'll also take a liking to the boss's daughter, which doesn't go over well with her father. Worse, Buckhorn starts wondering exactly what kind of man he's working for. Before the sun goes down, much blood will be spilled, and a lot of men will be blasted into the middle of next week.

Joe Buckhorn aims to be sure he's not one of them.

Great book!

It was interesting from the start. Kept me wanting to know what happens next. Story was well put together. Narrator was perfect, got the accents and different voices down very well. I really enjoyed it!

A New Anti Hero

The book is entertaining and good for mindless listening on the road. If you like Westerns. Has all the ingredients: Bad men stealing ranches and cattle, railroads being built, 2 warring factions and a bad man seeing the unfairness and turning to work for the good. Buckhorn is a typical entertaining JOHNSTONE Western. I’ll read the next one. #tagsgiving #sweepstakes
