Action-packed western adventure from the author of Crow Creek Crossing.
Up in the Montana mountains, Canyon Creek is the perfect little town for Simon Fry and his men to hole up for the winter. The folks are friendly enough to open their homes to eight perfect strangers—and gullible enough to believe that Fry’s gang is a militia sent to protect them from hostile Indians.
Jim Culver is new in town, but he knows something isn’t right about Simon Fry’s “militia.” They seem more interested in intimidating people than helping them. Anyone who questions them ends up dead or driven out. Someone has to step forward to protect the people of Canyon Creek from their new “protectors.”
That someone is Jim Culver. And this sleepy town is about to wake up with a bang.
