Publisher's Summary

Tell Sackett had been lured into the Apache's mountain stronghold by the icy beauty of his brother's wife. He didn't go alone. John J. Battles, Spanish Murphy, and the half-breed Tampico rode beside him. Each was driven by his past to test his speed and cunning against an enemy who could smell a white man a mile away, and then shoot his eyes out at a dead gallop. It was a contest few men could enter, and fewer still could hope to win.

Classic

Just another great story written by the best western writer ever. All his stories including this one are full of details true to the early west. A must read for western readers.

Yet another Great Louis yarn.

Good story as usual. Stratharn is excellent as well. Great combination together. They just go well together with all the elements of a good western tale well told.
