Publisher's Summary

In 1879, Steve Dancy sells his New York shop and ventures west to explore and write a journal about his adventures. Though he's not looking for trouble, Dancy's infatuation with another man's wife soon embroils him in a deadly feud with Sean Washburn, a Nevada silver baron. Infuriated by the outrages of two hired thugs, the shopkeeper kills both men in an impulsive street fight.
Dancy believes this barbarian act has closed the episode. He is wrong. He has interfered with Washburn's ambitions, and this is something the mining tycoon will not allow. Pinkertons, hired assassins, and aggrieved bystanders escalate the feud until it pulls in all the moneyed interests and power brokers in Nevada. Can the former city slicker settle accounts without losing his life in the process?

A well written western!

This is a great audiobook series. This book is well narrated and keeps you hooked until the end. The author really researched his material well and brings not only realism but suspenseful story that keeps you guessing all the way trough. I can't wait until I listen to the next book in the series.

The Incredible Shopkeeper

A must to listen too. Lots of humor, suspense and action. Steve Dancy, the main character, might be the most memorable soul on both sides of the Rockies. Well written and ranks with The Cowboys and The Cossacks. Take a chance with this masterpiece; you will laugh and will learn a thing or two.
