Bullets and buckshot fly in this New York Times bestselling Cole and Hitch novel from Robert B. Parker.
Newly appointed as Territorial Marshals, Virgil Cole and Everett Hitch are traveling by train on a mission to escort Mexican prisoners to the border.
But when the Governor of Texas climbs aboard with his wife, daughters, and $500,000 in tow, the journey becomes a lot more complicated.
An old enemy—still carrying plenty of scars from the last time he saw Virgil—has hitched a ride. He’s not alone. And he’s got vengeance on his mind.
