Chet Manning thinks he can breathe easy now that Glory Harpe, a crazy woman intent on killing him, is now dead.

Finally, he can focus on getting the South and West Railroad to Apache Pass before Western Pacific, his blood-thirsty competitors.

But all is never as it seems in Buffalo Junction.

Manning’s final enemy, Trig Forbes, is busted out of jail, and he’s about to launch a war against Manning.

But Manning will not give up easily.

Willing to risk everything now the end of the railroad is in sight, he goes on a hunt for justice.

A story of rivalry and competition, lust and jealousy is underway as Manning rides through hell to avenge his friends and kill his enemies.

Someone must reach the railhead, either dead or alive.

And it’s up to Manning to make sure it’s South and West Railroad.

Will he get there in time?

Or will he finally reach the end of the line?

Ricochet is a classic Western adventure. It was previously published as Railhead.
