Summary (From the publisher):

There's no war so bloody as Civil war...

Not that wealthy young Caleb Thorn cared a good goddamn for the cause of either side when the first shot of the American Civil War was fired in 1861. All he cared about – apart from his beloved mother – was dirty duelling and hard riding (of more than one kind.) Then he saw his family wiped out by Southern artillery in the carnage of the first Battle of Bull Run. And Caleb discovered a new outlet for his killing urge in riding with the vicious gang of condemned criminals the Union army had assembled for its dirtiest, most dangerous missions against the South...

The First Shot is the first story in a savage Western series about the most bloody fighting ever to take place on American soil.
