Publisher's Summary

The burden of the badge

At long last, US Marshal Aaron Mackey and Deputy Billy Sunday will see crime baron James Grant and his kill-crazy cronies stand trial for the mayhem and suffering they unleashed on the people of Dover Station. But as Montana Territory's statehood is approaching, murdering devils like Grant can no longer be tolerated in positions of political power. 

Or can they? Montana's capital of Helena follows its own set of laws - laws that not only set Grant free, but give peacekeeping authority to a sadistic murdering gunslinger like Colonel Warren Bell, Mackey's commanding officer during the war. The city's leaders prefer keeping killers like Grant and Bell under their thumbs. 

Mackey knows there's no controlling these bloodthirsty madmen. And if they think they're above the law, then Mackey and Billy will just have to appoint themselves judge, jury, and executioners....

Glad the storyline ended

I enjoyed the first book most of all. The propensity of authors to write serial books ad nauseam is more than I like. Personally prefer the story to end in the same book and a new story begin in the next. A lot of repetition and occasionally I get the feeling the author is a woman instead of a man by Aaron’s reaction and interactions.

Aaron Mackey seems to grow meaner and angrier in the last two books. That’s okay, but often his response doesn’t match the situation. Can’t give away the reason why or particulars of the storyline.

Needless to actually point out, but as usual J. Rodney Turner makes the book come alive. Love his voice so much…and his voices!
