Higbee Colorado, population 147, is booming. A visionary named Garrison Wade is building a railroad to connect Higbee to the Santa Fe. But a family named Clinton has its own selfish reasons for making sure these bands of steel go nowhere--and they've brought in a ruthless killer to derail Wade's plan. . .
Falcon MacCallister owes a debt to the would-be railroad man Wade--and has a score to settle with the Clinton's hired gunman. But Falcon knows that Higbee is going to be torn to pieces; neighbors, families and lovers bitterly divided. For a man who has known war and peace, the fastest way to the end of a tragedy is straight through the blood and tears--behind the light of a blazing gun. . .

Being the all-around assistant, typist, researcher, and fact checker to one of the most popular western authors of all time, J.A. Johnstone learned from the master, Uncle William W. Johnstone.
He began tutoring J.A. at an early age. After-school hours were often spent retyping manuscripts or researching his massive American Western history library as well as the more modern wars and conflicts. J.A. worked hard—and learned.
"Every day with Bill was an adventure story in itself. Bill taught me all he could about the art of storytelling. ‘Keep the historical facts accurate,' he would say. ‘Remember the readers, and as your grandfather once told me, I am telling you now: be the best J.A. Johnstone you can be.'"
