AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Rancher’s daughter Rebecca Donnell was sentenced to death after recognizing one of the men who robbed the stage she was travelling on. Her father knew only that she had vanished off the face of the earth, so he hired the only two men he felt could possibly find her – or her body… Shane Preston and Jonah Jones.

'The two gunfighters rode into the wilderness with no guarantees of success, but once they took a man’s money they never quit a job until it was complete. First they found the missing stagecoach, or what was left of it. Then they found three shallow graves…

'Their quest should have ended there. But the lean gunfighter and his crusty old companion knew they wouldn’t rest until they settled with the killers themselves, the so-called Long Knife Gang.

'Meanwhile, there was a pack of renegades on their trail, determined to capture and torture them for shooting their chief’s kill-crazy son. There was no turning back for Shane and Jonah. They were caught smack in the middle of two bands of killers who were both set on taking their scalps!'
