(From the publisher):
He was young and hungry for life - a scarecrow kid alone in a lawless land. Something about the boy named Kinch Riley made hardened railroad agent Mike McCluskie take him under wing: show him how to fight and shoot and sample the bawdy wonders of a wide-open boomtown. But Kinch got too fast with a gun just as a band of Texas outlaws rode into the Kansas railhead of Newton. And for the first time in his life, McCluskie will walk into a battle he can't win - because a boy's future is at stake, and so is a man's soul...
KINCH RILEY is Matt Braun's masterful retelling of a true Western mystery - the Newton General Massacre of 1871 - when six men died in 90 seconds, a boy vanished into the plains, and a legend was born...
