Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
This second collaboration (after last year's entertaining Fairchild's Passage) by Barton and Williams is a fast-paced but unlikely cross-country chaseby horse, buggy, train and blimpwith bewildered innocents pursued by relentless lawmen and mysterious killers. Wrongly accused of a fur bank robbery, Civil War vet James Lockhart and vivacious grifter Marian Taylor escape jail determined to find the real killers and clear their own names. Running pell-mell after clues and false trails, the couple don a variety of disguises, unable to trust anyone, even each other. Starting out as a predictable hayburner, this tale soon tests the reader's patience with preposterous shoot-'em-ups, James Bond-like escapes and detective work (from both lawmen and the accused) that's as full of holes as the bodies that litter these adventures. (June)

What People are saying about this

T. V. Olsen
"Plenty of action and suspense in this novel that combines the best elements of the classic Western and the classic detective yarn -- all of it seasoned with sound and believable characters. Barton and Williams surely are a pair to ride the river with. I look forward to their next collaboration." -- Author of 'The Burning Sky'
