The exciting fourth book in the "Loner with a Badge" western series from acclaimed western author Jeff Breland.
Returning home after arranging retirement for, yet, another outlaw. The stage on which bounty hunter Stone is traveling suffers a busted wheel coming off the peaks of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains. A blizzard is imminent. There is a railway only a few miles away. Attempting to expedite their rescue, Stone strikes out in search of the railroad. Not only does he find the railroad, but he finds a train. Unfortunately, this train has been robbed and all but one of the crew is dead.
Taking a quick lesson on engineering from a wounded brakeman, with the tracks up ahead destroyed, Stone fights to move the train - backward. The trick seems to work until snowdrifts and deadfall cause the train to derail. Stranded miles from anywhere Stone discovers that the outlaws did not find what they wanted when they robbed the train...Stone knows that this means they will be back. Will Stone manage to subdue the gang - or will they be the criminals who finally retire him?
With several best sellers already under his gunbelt, Jeff Breland strikes a chord with Western readers abd listeners around the world, and with Stone he has one of the great Western heroes of all time to write about.
