AWARD-WINNING AUTHOR OF THE SIXTH RIDER
SONS OF FIRE
ON THE EVE OF THE CIVIL WAR THREE BROTHERS
FIND THEMSELVES DEADLY ENEMIES....
On the eve of the Civil War the hardworking, hard-fighting Fenn family is caught in the middle of a bloody guerrilla war along the Missouri-Kansas border.
While Frank marries a pretty abolitionist and goes east to serve the Union cause, hotheaded Zachary joins the guerrilla chieftain William Quantrill and rides with such future outlaws as the Younger brothers and Frank and Jesse James. Patrick--who is unsure of his loyalties--heads for the Rockies in an attempt to escape the war, but finds there is no escape from his blood ties.
Meanwhile, their Missouri farm is burned to the ground and the rest of the family, led by their strong-willed sister, Caitlin, is left to fend for themselves in a ravaged land. Fate has taken them down different paths, but before the war comes to a close, the Fenns are destined for one last fiery reunion that will force them to choose between honor and blood.

Praise for Max McCoy
“McCoy at his best, proving himself once again as a master of his craft.”
—USA Today Best-selling Author Ralph Cotton (A Breed Apart)
"Not only has McCoy captured Twain's voice with consummate skill, his account of Jesse's life is more compelling than the outlaw's manufactured legend. A brilliantly crafted look at two of our best-known icons."
—Fred Bean, author of Black Gold and Eden (Jesse)
