The Storm family continues their epic ranch saga in the sixth novel in the series. Mart Storm cantered through the long New Mexico evening in a land where a man expects guitar music and the smiles of beautiful, hot-blooded women.They came for him in the half-light. One of them knocked him out of the saddle with a single shot, then another fired point-blank to blow his brains out.But the light was bad. The bullet no more than ripped along the parting in his hair, creasing his skull. The devil, as the saying goes, looks after his own. Mart Storm should have died that night. A lesser man would have been dead within the hour. But Mart wasn’t a lesser man. He wasn't going to die in New Mexico - the men shot him were, only they didn't know it yet.
