Revenge on the outlaw trail....

The Wyoming tinderbox of Muddy Gap is feeling none too friendly ever since the Grubbs gang tore through on a hellraising rampage. And it's far from over. Because what the vicious Utah Jack Grubbs would really kill for just rode into town: Smoke Jensen...and a small fortune in rawhide.

Smoke needed a break from driving a herd of remounts north when he showed up in Muddy Gap. Now, he's on the run again, headed for the Montana wilds - with Grubbs and his men shadowing his trail. As if that wasn't trouble enough, Chief Iron Claw's bloodthirsty Cheyenne warriors have just appeared on the horizon. It isn't long before a war between the White man's greed and the Red man's savagery turns the peaceful Bighorn Mountains into a simmering powderkeg.

Caught in the middle - with no way out - Smoke Jensen is just the man to set off the explosion.

Either way, this mountain man could end up dead....

Contains mature themes.

I wanted to like this book

This book frustrated me. The legend of Smoke Jensen did not run away from a wagon train. I don’t know who wrote this but it is not consistent with the other books.

If this had been the first Smoke Jenson book, I would not have listened to another one. It seems the author forgot where smoke came from compared to the other smoke Jensen books. Other characters were more active than Smoke. Smoke seemed to alway be knocked out during the big action scenes.
