A soldier turned Denver detective, Sam T. Mayes is hired by a military man to stop the vicious Border Gang and put the killers behind bars, with the help of an alcoholic army scout, a wanted man and a fierce native woman, and in exchange for the first badge ever worn by a U.S. Territorial Marshal. By a Western Heritage Award-winning author. Reissue.

McMillan Palgrave

In 1880, Arizona Territory was an outlaw’s paradise.
The gunmen rode hard along the border, pillaging and murdering their way to plunder and wealth. Guided by a powerful landowner and his vicious outlaw captain, the Border Gang was organized, mean, and armed to the teeth. In Prescott, the governor knew Arizona’s sheriffs couldn’t stop the chaos—and statehood was in peril. Then a military man named Bowen stepped in with a plan: find a few good men, call them marshals, and send them after the Border Gang.

Then the law struck back with a man named Mayes.
Sam T. Mayes, a soldier turned Denver detective, is Bowen’s first and only choice. Now Mayes—accompanied by an alcoholic army scout, a wanted man, and a fierce native woman—must ride against the cutthroat gang. Maye’s job is to put the killers behind bars—or put them in the ground. His reward: The first-ever badge to be worn by a U.S. Territorial Marshal…
