The New York Timesabestselling authoras richly imagined work of historical fiction: a powerful tale of the Old West from the acknowledged master of crime fiction.

I had an eight-gauge shotgun that Iad taken with me when I left Wells Fargo. It didnat take too long for things to develop. I sat in the tall lookout chair in the back of the saloon with the shotgun in my lap for two peaceful nights. On my third night it was different. I could almost smell trouble beginning to cook . . . .a

After the bloody confrontation in Appaloosa, Everett Hitch heads into the afternoon sun and ends up in Resolution, an Old West town so new the dust has yet to settle. Itas the kind of town that doesnat have much in the way of commerce, except for a handful of saloons and some houses of ill repute. Hitch takes a job as lookout at Amos Wolfsonas Blackfoot Saloon and quickly establishes his position as protector of the ladies who work the backroomsaas well as a man unafraid to stand up to the enforcer sent down from the OaMalley copper mine.

Though Hitch makes short work of hired gun Koy Wickman, tensions continue to mount, so that even the self-assured Hitch is relieved by the arrival in town of his friend Virgil Cole. When greedy mine owner Eamon OaMalley threatens the loose coalition of local ranchers and starts buying up Resolutionas few businesses, Hitch and Cole find themselves in the middle of a makeshift war between OaMalleyas men and the ranchers. In a place where law and order donat exist, Hitch and Cole must make their own, guided by their sense of duty, honor, and friendship.
