Shootout in Dodge City

Joseph and Liam Carrigan may have the same strong Irish blood running in their veins, but the similarity ends there. Where Joseph is level-headed and forthright, Liam is temperamental and roguish. After fighting on opposing sides in the Civil War, they reunite to head west in search of a better life and an enigmatic, long-lost uncle who disappeared years earlier.
But their journey will not be an easy one. Not only must they contend with the dangers of both man and nature on the untamed frontier, but also with the never-ending sibling rivalry that once tore them apart -- and a menacing, shadowy figure who's on their trail, marking the Carrigan brothers' every move, waiting for the moment to strike....
From Cameron Judd, the Spur Award­nominated author of The Overmountain Men and Crockett of Tennessee, comes a new series steeped in the traditions of the Old West: courage, honor, and nonstop adventure.
