Overview


The winter around Cheyenne‚ Wyoming that year was devastating‚ killing both people and livestock. John Henry Cole was three miles out of town on his small ranch‚ waiting out the storm that was quickly killing his cattle and horses‚ and starting to feel a little crazy himself. Everything he owned was dying before his eyes and there wasn't anything that he could do about it. His dreams of a settled life were as dead as everything else. He knew it was time to move on. And move on he did‚ but not in a direction he expected. Teddy Green‚ a Texas Ranger‚ arrives in Cheyenne and seeks Cole's help in locating Ella Mims‚ a woman who once lived in Cheyenne and with whom Cole had once been intimate. Green wants to question her concerning her involvement in a murder in Denver City. But they would not be the only ones searching for her.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Texas Ranger Teddy Green rides into town, hoping to team with Cole in tracking down Ella Mims, Green?s estranged wife and the woman Cole let get away in Frontier Justice (2012). Ella, it appears, is wanted for murder in Denver and is being tracked by a gang of vigilantes and, worse, by a psycho killer called Gypsy Davy . . .cameos from Bill Cody, Doc Holliday, and Roy Bean enliven the action, but it?s the interplay between Cole and his two riding buddies that make this fine novel sing.
