Publisher's Summary

Schoolteacher Konrad Diamond falls afoul of cattle baron Ernst Haeckel. Rather than invite more trouble, Diamond and his sister Lila light out for new pastures. But the vindictive Haeckel puts a price on Diamond’s head, and the bounty hunters are coming for him. The teacher and his sister fall in with Gusty Gillespie, a battle-scarred bruiser, and then fate throws the trio into the path of Jacob Millard, who is on a rescue mission for a young girl kidnapped from his town. 

Konrad, Lila, and Gusty try to persuade him. It is a suicidal enterprise. But what the hell! They say blood is thicker than water. The group of four wade through a crimson tide as they ride the dark trail and do battle with bounty hunters, Cheyenne warriors, crooked lawmen, and outlaws. No one can foretell which of them will survive, if any.

Great western story

This is an enjoyable, action filled western story, set after the civil war. A school teacher, his sister, a young man looking for his kidnapped friend, and a scarred ex-soldier, form a friendship as they help each other fight the bad guys. The narrator, J Scott Bennett’s voice fits this story so well. He gave the characters their own voice and made you feel like you were in a western. This is a well written, enjoyable story and I would happily listen to others by this author.

Excellent story!

Set in the times after the civil war, this is a very well written story about a soldier, turned school teacher who gets on the wrong side of a bad guy. In his pursuit to avoid problems, he comes across more problems that all circle back to the original. This author is a good one. He has well developed characters, and his descriptions are so good that I felt that I could actually SEE what he was 'seeing'. This is the first book I have read from Philip McCormac, but, I don't think it will be the last.
I listened to the audiobook version of this book and Scott Bennett is one of my favorite narrators to listen to. He is an excellent story teller and he seems to BE each character he is reading. It is always a pleasure to listen to Scott Bennett's work.
