Series: Jubal Cade
(From the publisher):
St. Louis, gateway to the west and springboard of dreams – for those who had them. Fate had shattered what Jubal Cade had hoped for, killing his new wife and thrusting a blind orphan boy on him. So he came to St. Louis as a realist, not a dreamer. Needing money to help young Andy Prescott and, more desperately, to finance his search for Mary’s killer, Jubal Cade was a man with a gun for hire.
Ben Agnew offered him money to take a package to Cheyenne. It was a long ride and death dogged his tracks, from outlaws and from the Sioux. But it was Jubal who dispensed death, spilling the blood of white and red men alike.
A doctor whom destiny had decreed should kill instead of heal. Danger was his companion all the way to Cheyenne, and disappointment awaited him there. Sooner or later Jubal had to face the nightmare of a ghastly double cross.
