The winter around Cheyenne‚ Wyoming that year was devastating‚ killing both people and livestock. John Henry Cole was three miles out of town on his small ranch‚ waiting out the storm that was quickly killing his cattle and horses‚ and starting to feel a little crazy himself. Everything he owned was dying before his eyes and there wasn’t anything that he could do about it. His dreams of a settled life were as dead as everything else. He knew it was time to move on. And move on he did‚ but not in a direction he expected. Teddy Green‚ a Texas Ranger‚ arrives in Cheyenne and seeks Cole’s help in locating Ella Mims‚ a woman who once lived in Cheyenne and with whom Cole had once been intimate. Green wants to question her concerning her involvement in a murder in Denver City. But they would not be the only ones searching for her.

Five Star First Edition Westerns Standing Order Plan

Five Star Westerns are standard print, first editions from top Western writers. The majority are brand new manuscripts from the best contemporary writers; a few are serials from magazine publications of many years ago, and -- occasionally -- we find an unpublished manuscript from some of the classic Western writers of a bygone era. Five Star consistently brings you the best quality writing the genre has to offer. Five Star Western authors have won numerous awards including the National Cowboy Hall of Fame’s Western Heritage Award, Levi Strauss’ Golden Saddleman Award, the Spur Award from Western Writers of America and many regional awards as well. The Western genre is not dead! The Western story is the American story. There’s a morality and a certain nobility in Westerns, not consistently found in other genres. Westerns are much more than guns and horses. Strong characters and a strong sense of place and time characterize all our Five Star Western titles. Five Star publishes the best Westerns available today by the top writers of both the present and past. All are published in our durable library edition hardcover format. Actual covers may be different from those shown.


“Texas Ranger Teddy Green rides into town, hoping to team with Cole in tracking down Ella Mims, Green’s estranged wife and the woman Cole let get away in Frontier Justice (2012). Ella, it appears, is wanted for murder in Denver and is being tracked by a gang of vigilantes and, worse, by a psycho killer called Gypsy Davy . . .cameos from Bill Cody, Doc Holliday, and Roy Bean enliven the action, but it’s the interplay between Cole and his two riding buddies that make this fine novel sing.”-Booklist STARRED Review, Mar. 15, 2013
