Publisher's Summary

Johnstone Country. Where it's never quiet on the Western front. Springfield Model 1880. Trapdoor rifle with bayonet. Vengeance optional.

With a handful of murderous rogues, Captain Jed Foster has run off with four wagons containing new Springfield rifles, bayonets, and ammunition meant to resupply the troops at Fort Bowie in Arizona Territory. Foster plans to sell the weapons to the highest bidder - whether it's Apaches, Mexican revolutionaries, or Confederate veterans who still dream of destroying the Union. But that's the least of Foster's problems....

His junior officer, Lieutenant Grat Holden, is coming after him. With the help of an ornery ex-sergeant known as "Hard Rock" Masterson and fiery guerilla fighter Soledad, the young lieutenant will face off with war chiefs, banditos, and cutthroat outlaws. That's just for starters. Then he's got to take down a man who has enough guns for a small army.

Johnstone needs to do better than just more of the same old thing

Johnstone’s stories are nothing more than the same each and every writing.
No or weak plot. Didn’t count them but would venture not less than 100+ killings by gun and knife comprises the whole set of events. If that is what you enjoy then this and all of the other books by him are for you. Same old story as with all of his books- just new title and wrapper with no plot and very weak storyline. LL he is NOT. If you have listened to one of his “books” then you have read or listened to them all. Narrator only positive for this audiobook .
