The fourth action-packed historical western from national bestselling authors William W. Johnstone and J.A. Johnstone featuring Buck Trammel, former Pinkerton-turned Wyoming Territory lawman!
Keeper of the peace, enforcer of the law, Buck Trammel has faced every kind of killer, outlaw, and prairie rat that’s crawled from the depraved depths of America’s western frontier—with a quick draw and a clean conscience…
“King” Charles Hagen is dead. The empire he carved out of Blackstone, Wyoming, by hook and by crook now lies in the hands of his children. Caleb Hagen has long stood in his father’s shadow, ambitiously plotting, and ready to stake his claim. Young and impetuous BartHagen plans to expand the family legacy across the nation. Debora Hagen’s ruthless nature believes the time has come for a queen to reign over the Hagen kingdom.
Only Adam, their estranged brother, has a different plan. His vengeance against their father requires him to tear down everything “King” Hagen ever built, even if that means shedding family blood. But none of the siblings reckoned that bloodthirsty crime honcho Lucien Clay was prepared to send a murderous pack of gunslingers against them all for control of the territory.
Blackstone has been ruled by lawlessness long enough. The town is Buck Trammel’s jurisdiciton. And he will protect it as judge, jury, and executioner…
Johnstone Country. Where the Sun Never Sets on Justice.

J.A. Johnstone learned to write from the master himself, Uncle William W. Johnstone, who 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 Johnstone you can be.'" J.A. Johnstone has co-written numerous bestselling series with William W. Johnstone including The First Mountain Man, The Brothers O'Brien, Preacher, and The Last Mountain Man.
