KINCH RILEY -- 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...
INDIAN TERRITORY -- The railroad's drive to close the great distances of the wild American West was marked by treachery, violence, and betrayal. Profiteers would let nothing stand in their way, while Indians fought to prevent the threatening march of progress. John Ryan was hired to troubleshoot for the railroad and grew to admire the Indian way of life. Soon he would be forced to choose between the old and the new, progress and tradition, and between a passionate white woman and a Cherokee maiden.
