Publisher Comments:

The New York Times—bestselling authors 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 Id taken with me when I left Wells Fargo. It didnt 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.

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. Its the kind of town that doesnt have much in the way of commerce, except for a handful of saloons and some houses of ill repute.  Hitch takes a job as a lookout at Amos Wolfsons Blackfoot Saloon and quickly establishes his position as protector of the ladies who work the back rooms-as well as a man unafraid to stand up to the enforcer sent down from the OMalley 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 OMalley threatens the loose coalition of local ranchers and starts buying up Resolutions few businesses, Hitch and Cole find themselves in the middle of a makeshift war between OMalleys men and the ranchers. In a place where law and order dont exist, Hitch and Cole must make their own, guided by their sense of duty, honor, and friendship.

Synopsis:

Virgil Cole and Everett Hitch, the two honorable guns-for-hire from "Appaloosa," return. This time, Cole and Hitch find themselves forced to choose between the shifting laws of the West and the timelessness of friendship.
