Once a lawman, always a lawman…
After years as a Federal Marshall, Ricky Degard sets himself up as an investigator with his saddle-partner Boyd Fennick.
The two of them have experience, but when they take a job tracking down Oby Rawling’s cattle they may be biting off more than they can chew.
Degard and Fennick can’t trust anyone – the sheriff, the townsfolk, and even Oby Rawling himself seem suspicious.
But as the pieces begin to come together, they’re starting to make a darker and darker picture.
When Degard and Fennick find themselves on the trail of a group of men known as the Justice Riders, they’re going to get as far away from justice as it’s possible to go.
It’s not long before guns are smoking all across the grazing lands.
On the Persecution Trail, friends will turn into enemies and the suspects might just be the ones who save your life.
In this sharp-paced western meets detective novel, Denis Hughes will draw you in and keep you reading well into the night.
