Book Description


Cash McLendon has always had an
instinct for self-preservation, one that was honed by an impoverished
childhood and life with an alcoholic father barely scraping by on the
streets of Saint Louis in 1872. He’s always had a knack for finding and
capitalizing on the slightest opportunities, choosing the path of
financial security over happiness or real friends. He eventually builds
himself up from a Saint Louis street urchin to the son-in-law and heir
apparent to industrial mogul Rupert Douglass. Though it lacks passion,
his life seems securely set: a wife, a career, property, standing.

But when tragedy strikes, all of
his plans and his entire future dissolve in an instant. McLendon’s
instinct for survival kicks in; he flees Saint Louis, and Douglas
assigns his enforcer, an ominous skull-cracker with steel-toed boots, to
track him down.

With nothing to lose, McLendon
attempts to reconcile with an old flame—a woman he was nearly engaged to
but put aside in exchange for the life now in shambles. He heard
through the grapevine that she and her father moved their dry-goods
store out west, to a speck-on-the-map mining town named Glorious, in the
Arizona Territory. There, McLendon tries to win her back, and in the
process discovers a new way of life at the edge of the final American
frontier. But he can’t outrun his past forever. . . .
