Jim Gatlin rode into Cedar Creek hunting the man who had framed him for a crime he didn’t commit. Pinkerton agent Charlie Pine had located the real train robber, called Hood, but outlaws Hidalgo, Wilson and River were also after him for the fortune locked away in a safe at Hood’s home. Why was Hood’s location a dark secret – even in Cedar Creek? Why were Marshal Jax Silva and the two hard men, Green and Mundt, determined to keep it that way? Against overwhelming odds, Gatlin would have to face a bloody showdown and it would take all his skill and courage to unlock a truly shocking secret.
