In this powerful new novel, William W. Johnstone and J. A. Johnstone chronicle Smoke Jensen's early years, long before he became a legend.
Kirby - later Smoke - Jensen has just earned his first paying job as a deputy US marshal for the Colorado Territory and is sent to the lawless town of Las Animas. There he finds a sheriff too cowardly to face the outlaw leader Cole Dawson, whose six-gun has left a lot of good men dead.
Young Smoke feels no such fear. He takes Dawson down fast. Then the real fight begins. It turns out Dawson is only a cog in a crooked plot hatched by someone hiding behind the law. For a young deputy marshal, going up against the powerful and corrupt is almost certainly a fool's mission, but doing nothing is not a choice. When Smoke strikes, he's in all the bloody way, and what follows will become the stuff of legend.
Braving bullets, blood, and treachery to face down the most dangerous outlaw in Colorado Territory, Smoke will earn a reputation for justice and the rule of law in a wild, violent frontier.

Not that much new
No, almost a complete copy of "Smoke Jensen, the Beginning"
Made it into one book.
I like Jack Garrett, they were all good
Not really as stated above and below
I buy series and try to listen to them in order. The last few chapters of this book should have been added to the end of "Smoke Jensen, the Beginning". The only real difference between these two books is the beginning and end and about one year in release dates. The middle of the books are almost exactly the same. Waste of money or credits for these book.
