(From the publisher):
Pinkerton detective Ward Loman rode into Coldwater, Texas, to hunt down the killer Leo Slattery. His orders were to take Leo in dead or alive. But there was trouble on the local range involving Leo’s family, headed by Hub Slattery, owner of the HS ranch.
As the situation rapidly worsens, Loman comes to the rescue of Kate Hesp, and is plunged into a deadly sequence of events with its origins in the war between North and South. A gold shipment had disappeared in the last weeks of the war and this was a mystery that would not go away.
Just as Loman expected, gunsmoke and death would be the outcome.
