Itinerant lawmen Virgil Cole and Everett Hitch return in a brilliant new addition 

to the New York Times-bestselling series.

 

For years, Virgil Cole and Everett Hitch have ridden roughshod over rabble-

rousers and gun hands in troubled towns like Appaloosa, Resolution, and 

Brimstone. Now, newly appointed as Territorial Marshalls, they find themselves 

traveling by train through the Indian Territories. Their first marshaling duty 

starts out as a simple mission to escort Mexican prisoners to the border, but 

when the Governor of Texas, his wife and daughters climb aboard with their 

bodyguards and $500,000 in tow, their journey suddenly becomes a lot more 

complicated.

 

The problem is Bloody Bob Brandice. He and Virgil have had it out before, an 

encounter that left Brandice face-down in the street with two .44 slugs lodged in 

him. Now, twelve years later on a night train struggling uphill in a 

thunderstorm, Brandice is back — and he's not alone. Cole and Hitch find 

themselves in the midst of a heist with a horde of very bad men, two beautiful 

young hostages, and a man with a vendetta he's determined to carry out.
