Summary (From the publisher):

Edited by: Ed Gorman and Martin H. Greenberg

Before Dashiell Hammett or Pulp Fiction, there was the frontier: a land of outcasts, loners, criminals, and lawmen, where disputes were ended by a six-gun. Now, the world's leading contemporary crime writers return to the most dramatic American setting, where the tales of good guys and bad guys, crime and punishment, began on...The Fatal Frontier

In The Boy Who Smiled Elmore Leonard tells the haunting story of a lynching, and the savage saga of revenge it spawns. John Jakes' The Woman At Apache Wells captures a violent falling-out among thieves, and a man and woman making a clean break for California. In The Time of the Wolves Marcia Muller leads a young wife into a long night of madness and survival on a wind-swept Kansas prairie. And in Riverboat Fighter, Brian Garfield masterfully protrays a gambling man's struggle with his past, his future, and a murderous enemy he encounters on the Rio Colorado.

A stunning anthology that brings the American West vividly to life, The Fatal Frontier showcases the exceptional talents of today's most popular mystery and crime storytellers in tales of deadly choices, flaring passions, and the hard battles of men and women living on the edge of survival.
