One Last Job
 
Former Pinkerton agent Talbot Roper has a begrudging respect for his old boss. When Allen Pinkerton dies, and his sons send for Roper to attend the funeral, he has no choice but to oblige them. But Pinkerton’s sons, who now run the agency, want Roper to do more than pay his respects. They have a dangerous assignment that no man on their payroll can handle.
 
Now Roper is headed to Fort Worth, Texas, where someone is sabotaging the Union Stockyard company. Going undercover to infiltrate the industry, Roper knows that the men he’s up against aren’t just smart; they’re deadly. And he’ll need to remember everything Allen ever taught him to finish the job…and stay alive.
