As the result of a chance meeting, aging U.S. Marshal Alistair B. Taggert recruits middle-aged blacksmith John McKinney as his deputy. A steadfast, lasting friendship develops between the two men.

The quiet McKinney regrets missing out on helping his near-famous, eighty-one-year-old friend tame the frontier.

Only friendship stands between them and a bullet...

About J. D. McCall

J. D. McCall grew up in Kansas during the time when Westerns were king on television and at the movies. Living in a state that was home to such places as Abilene, Dodge, Wichita, and many other of the wickedest cattle towns ever found in the West, the author was never far from Kansas lore, which included the legendary figures of Earp, Hickok, Masterson, and Cody. Not surprisingly, he has retained a great affection for that part of American history which was once the Old West. Born too late to be a cowboy, Mr. McCall makes his living in this modern day as an industrial hygienist in the field of occupational health and safety. He continues to reside in the city of his birth, Ottawa, with his wife and three children.
