In a bloody attack, ruthless outlaws hijack the morning stage from Trinidad, New Mexico. Not for gold or money, but for Denver banker Raymond Parker. Even more valuable to Sheriff Caleb York are the money man’s fellow passengers: York’s ex-flame, ranch owner Willa Cullen, and Rita Filley, the sensual owner of the Victory Saloon.
Holding their captives at a hotel in the ghost town known as Hell Junction, the Hargrave gang demands a high ransom. Caleb must find a way to infiltrate the gang and rescue the hostages. Because Caleb York knows when you’re in Hell, justice takes no prisoners . . .
