Description
Jim Glass is a drifter who soldiered for a losing cause, upheld the law as a Texas Ranger, and who often has been mistaken for legendary gunman John Wesley Hardin. He's a lost man on a trail to nowhere -- and where he rides, death follows. Coffin Flats, New Mexico, is a nothing town in the middle of nowhere, which suits Jim Glass just fine. Jim is looking for work. He's as good with his hands as he is with a gun, which makes him a very attractive prospect for the local brothel. Instead, Jim hires on with Marshal Chalk Bronson. A hothead named Johnny Waco is threatening to burn Coffin Flats down if his runaway wife is not returned to him. The lady in question had loved Marshal Bronson until fate and war separated them. Now Jim Glass has a plan that will either make things right -- or far worse -- than they are already. It's the kind of scheme that could pull a drifter like Glass into a world of killers and heartbreak.
