Synopses & Reviews
Matt Bardoul was a good man to have as a friend and a bad one to make trouble with. He was also a single-minded drifter—until he met his match in an outspoken beauty named Jacquine Coyle. She was headed into the Bighorn Mountains with her father and an expedition in search of gold. After Matt signs on to join them, he discovers that there is a group of outlaws in the party—gunfighters and thieves that Matt wouldnt trust for a minute. At first its unclear what they are planning, but before long Matt realizes that hes the only man standing between innocent people and a brutal conspiracy of greed, lust, and cold-blooded murder.
Die Rich. The promise was gold, a lot of it, waiting in the Big Horn Mountains. The plan was to head out with a handpicked party and nothing but the best in wagons, stock, and goods. Matt Bardoul bought in because the girl he wanted was there. But the tall, rugged man in buckskin sensed there was something wrong even before someone tried to warn him off--and someone else tried to gun him down. Sure enough, as the wagon train journeys westward, a deadly plot unfolds. Now Bardoul is the only man standing between innocent people and a brutal conspiracy of greed, lust, and cold-blooded murder.
An urgently whispered message in an empty stable warned Matt Bardoul to avoid the wagon train to the Big Horns and the gold. But Bardoul went anyway--with as poisonous a pack of sidewinders as could be. He bought in because he was interested--in the gold, the grass, and the girl.
