"Boggs is among the best western writers at work today." —Booklist "Boggs is unparalleled in evoking the gritty reality of the Old West." —The Shootist'Til Death Do Us PartStranded in the Mojave Desert, Micah Bishop is about to cash in his chips for good when he's rescued by an unlikely savior. Whip Watson is hand-delivering two dozen brides to the silver boom town of Calico, where miners are going loco for companionship. Better still, Watson asks Micah if he'd help escort the wagons—and far be it for Micah to pass up both cash and some very pretty faces. But Micah doesn't know that Whip Watson has some killer competition. Candy Crutchfield is racing to get to Calico first with her own maids-in-waiting. Neither Watson or Crutchfield are going to back down. Both are willing to kill to beat the competition. Now, Micah is going to find out just how far he'll go for a buck. Because these "wives" aren't what they seem. And they're all about to be delivered straight into a living hell. . ."Johnny Boggs has produced another instant page-turner. . .don't put down the book until you finish it."—Tony Hillerman on Killstraight "Johnny D.
