In his debut novel, Utah rancher Eric Bishop gives us a modern western thriller. When Desert Storm veteran Jim Cooper stumbles on a mob hit in the mountains above his Wyoming ranch, he kills three criminals to save the life of their targetóbut the decision is not without consequence. The man offers him a large reward in exchange for his help, and Jim soon finds himself on a trip to retrieve a truckload of Mafia cash. But even if Jim and his partner-in-crime escape with the money, will his conservative neighbors provide sanctuary for their local Samaritan? Or will he live in fear of Mafia revenge for the rest of his life?
"Proof positive that the Wild West is still wild. An engaging blend of character study, intrigue, and violent action, Bishop's novel is a well-told page turner. Hang on and ride along as the story races from Wyoming's wilderness trails to the mean streets of Las Vegas and back again."óRod Miller
