When old money and older entitlement invade Missouri, Ruben Beeler is dispatched by the Federal Marshals Service to investigate complaints from small farmers and ranchers that a wealthy Englishman is taking over an entire county. Rube leaves his wife and their baby at home, and enters into a conflict where might is right, and Sir Merrit Treadstone is prepared to do whatever is necessary to establish the Calico Cattle Company and his new American kingdom. With Marion Daniels and Homer Poteet, Ruben faces poison, arson, and murder as he struggles to put down a British invasion and stay alive, on The Calico Trail.

Refreshing and honest
Rube is probably my favourite - he goes from an awkward "aw shucks" to a hard no-nonsense man in control of any situation. He has a gentleness that is very endearing, and a strength that is very reassuring.
Loved Lewis' deep gravelly voice and his seemingly genuine way of telling his story.
Lawmen who get the difficult jobs done efficiently but with side-splitting humour.
This author needs to produce more books.
A western that will keep you laughing
- Kennard "Just an old retired guy, eyesight not as good as it was, so really enjoy listening to these books. Been listening for about 6 years."
