Is there some connection between a string of train robberies, a mysterious nightrider who delivers hand-minted gold coins to poor Mexican peasants, and a violent feud between two former partners? Marc Charvein, Wells Fargo express messenger, and two of his old friends, Carlos Sandoval and Lucy Barkley, cross the border to find out. A ragged Mexican orphan helps them intercept the masked midnight courier. But the trio is captured and taken to the robbers' lair where the outlaws are smelting stolen gold and minting coins. The Irish-born leader has a vendetta against his former partner whose gold is being taken from Wells Fargo. Can the three escape? Will they live to get home?

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contemporary writers; a few are serials from magazine publications of many years ago, and -- occasionally -- we find an unpublished manuscript from some of the classic Western writers of a bygone era.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.


"Champlin's a veteran storyteller with dozens of novels and short stories under his belt, and this book showcases his finely honed writing skills, especially his knack for creating characters who feel like contemporary men and women and not artifacts. It's a well-plotted, smoothly written western that's sure to appeal to genre fans."
