Publisher's summary

When cowboy artist Willie Russell is murdered on the Branding Iron Ranch, Sheriff Charles Matthews faces a mystery that seems built on the bones of the past. Willie Russell leaves behind sketches that illustrate a century-old legend of a brutal outlaw, a beautiful young woman, and the lost Santiago Crucifix, a three-foot-tall cross of solid gold. 

With only the sketches, the footprints of Johnny Brentwood, and very little else, Charles focuses on the eerie links between past and present events. Were Willie's sketches the story of the past, or a portent of the future?

More romance than mystery

Story centers on romance and slows down the pace of the book. Lots of pain and suffering, but not much continuity of plot. A real disappointment after reading the first book in the series. Too many misunderstandings as characters make false assumptions about the motives of others. Hope the next book will return to centering on the mystery rather than sophomoric romance.
