Overview

When hard-living, hard-drinking federal agent Arnold Grieves came to Junction City, he saw a town overflowing with vice—the kind of place where an unscrupulous lawman could feed his twisted hungers and make a serious killing. Now the old Grieves is gone and the new one's hell-bent on getting rich . . . by selling a doomsday weapon to evil men who are not reluctant to use it.

The powers back East suspect something—so they're sending their very best manhunter, Noah Ford, to Colorado to hunt Grieves down. Ford doesn't know it yet, but he's riding into a town that's fixing to explode with chaos, treachery, and unimaginable violence. And the rogue he's chasing's not about to surrender quietly—and neither one of them will be dying alone.

Cavalry Man: Doom Weapon LP

Chapter One

The Regal Hotel
Junction City, Colorado
Room 207
12:07 a.m.
March 23, 1885

"I knew you'd wake up eventually, Mr. Ford. I put a little sleeping powder in the coffee the maid brought up."

"You seem to have a knife at my throat."

"It's dark, Mr. Ford. It's really a straight razor."

"Ah."

"My name's Molly Kincaid, in case you want to know. And if it wasn't so dark, you'd be able to see that I'm a very beautiful woman."

"Any particular reason you want to cut my throat? It's a messy business for a beautiful woman, you know."

"Don't worry. I've had plenty of practice at cutting throats and I'm very careful. I don't get a drop on me. Ever. And as for why I'm here, it's very simple. I want you to trust me."

"Well, we're off to a good start."

"I'm proving something to you. I'm proving that you can trust me. I could kill you in just a few seconds here, Mr. Ford. If I wanted to."

"I'm sure you could. What is it you want exactly?"

"Oh, c'mon now, Mr. Ford. You know what I want. I want to know where Grieves is."

She cut me then. I jerked in the rocking chair where I'd fallen asleep looking out the hotel room window.

Warm blood sliding down my neck. A nasty sting from the sliced flesh.

"You see how easy it would be, Mr. Ford? Now, you're a federal agent just like Grieves is a federal agent. That means you know what he knows. Am I right?"

It's never easy knowing what to say when somebody's got a razor pressed against your throat.
