The young drifter had a taste for life. The old gunfighter had a date with death. Their friendship led to a killing storm-- and a true legend of the frontier.
He was young and hungry for life-- a scarecrow kid alone in a lawless land. Something about the boy named Kinch Riley made hardened railroad agent Mike McCluskie take him under his wing: show him how to fight and shoot and sample the bawdy wonders of a wide-open boomtown. But Kinch got too fast with a gun just as a band of Texas outlaws rode into the Kansas railhead of Newton. And for the first time in his life, McCluskie will walk into a battle he can't win-- because a boy's future is at stake, and so is a man's soul.
Kinch Riley is Matt Braun's masterful retelling of a true Western mystery-- the Newton General Massacre of 1871-- when six men died in 90 seconds, a boy vanished into the plains, and a legend was born...
