From the author of the beloved western trilogy "The Sharpshooter" comes the captivating story of a reformed thief who finds himself on the other side of the law.... Duncan Curry was a brilliant thief. Banks, trains--anything with money was a job for him, and he did it well. During his years fighting for the Confederacy, he honed his skills in the name of a greater good. But now the Union is whole again, and Duncan Curry needs a job. When a man from his past approaches him asking if he will use his unique skills to guard the railroads, Curry cannot refuse. It is the ultimate form of justice, as the one-time train robber now sees life from an entirely new perspective, protecting the rails that he once preyed upon. Now he is the private law in a time when every train is a big, fat target for opportunists with a gun and little gumption. Now Curry must learn to dodge bullets, instead of letting them fly, and find a way to keep his not-so-savory past from catching up with him as well.

Old Jake Hanlon is "ancient and craglike, weathered and withered . . . something like a worn rocky butte himself."

Ultimately, it is Old Jake's recollection of the tales of his past-stories of endurance, strength, compassion, and cunning-that helps prepare him for death.
