For years, Virgil Cole and Everett Hitch have ridden roughshod
over rabble-rousers and gun hands in troubled towns like Appaloosa, Resolution,
and Brimstone. Now, newly appointed as territorial marshals, they find
themselves traveling by train through the Indian territories. Their first
marshaling duty starts out as a simple mission to escort Mexican prisoners to
the border, but when the governor of Texas, his wife, and his daughters climb
aboard with their bodyguards and a half-million dollars in tow, their journey
suddenly becomes a lot more complicated.
The problem is Bloody Bob Brandice. He and Virgil have had
it out before, an encounter that left Brandice face-down in the street with two
.44 slugs lodged in him. Now, twelve years later on a night train struggling
uphill in a thunderstorm, Brandice is back—and he’s not alone. Cole and Hitch
find themselves in the midst of a heist with a horde of very bad men, two
beautiful young hostages, and a man with a vendetta he’s determined to carry
out. Download and start listening now!
