A treacherous ride for supplies brings mortal danger to a trigger-happy gunfighter in this thrilling Ralph Compton western. Big Charlie Chilton knows better than to lose his temper, but when a loudmouth threatens to expose his long-buried secrets, he can’t help but teach the man a lesson about keeping quiet. Unfortunately, it turns out the man was about to make an important supply run for the town marshal, and Marshal Watt knows just enough about Shotgun Charlie’s past to draft him into service. The trek north would be treacherous enough with the snow, but the ragtag drunkards running the freighting outfit make Charlie ill at ease. When bad blood springs up between them, Charlie is left for dead on the side of the mountain. But they should have made sure he was really gone, because the wounded bear of a man isn’t down without a fight, and he’s ready to wreak vengeance on those who did him wrong....

In this Ralph Compton western, a man with the courage to take a stand goes up against an outlaw cavalry that can't be stopped... In Mexico, Wes Stone picked up his father’s gun, rode his father’s horse, and took on his father’s enemies. In California, he planted a band of savage criminals in the ground. Now Stone is heading up to the plains of Colorado, where a new kind of war has begun. A dangerous band of mercenaries is going for the gold—enough to bankrupt the entire country. Their scheme: to raid four U.S. mints. Their weapon: an armored train tearing through the West like a fire-powered battle-ax on wheels. From Durango to Dodge City, across a rugged land stained with blood, gold, and treachery, Stone follows a violent trail of honor. All that stands between victory and death is a quick-draw reflex—and the kind of .44-caliber justice that could tame the West and turn Stone into a legend.
