Skye fargo agrees to escort a Mother Superior and two sisters ,who are to become nuns,to The Sisters of Apostolic Grace Convent in the mountains outside Santa Fe,New Mexico.Seems like a simple enough mission,but turns ugly to the n'th degree ,when bandito Fermin Terreros and his band of outlaws decide differently.Not only that,this area is Apache country and all this results in one of The Trailsman's most harrowing experiences.If the outlaws don't kill them,the Apaches are sure to.
This story is filled with action,shootings,and every kind of attack that one can imagine.The odds are so much against Fargo and his charges surviving;that it appears all they can really hope for is a merciful death.
If it's lots of action and killing galore you like;this is one episode in this series you don't want to miss.

The odds sure stack up against Skye Fargo getting out of this one alive when his weakness for helping women sees him taking on twenty plus bandits alone, not to mention a handful of Apaches too. And then there's the women he's protecting, one who seems intent on getting them all killed in her quest to become a nun.
The book is filled with wonderful characters: Sister Angelina, who has a surprising past and some hidden motives for bringing The Trailsman and the two young women together. Dalila, who doesn't want to be a nun. Terreros, who will stop at nothing to kill them all - to name just a few.
Tough opposition brings out some of the more brutal traits within The Trailsman, which means there's some savage action to be found within this books pages. The author also includes some lighter moments of humour, mostly in the dialogue spoken by Fargo.
Settings are well described, as are the characters. The fight sequences are savage at times and are depicted well, and with the number of people trying to stop The Trailsman the violence comes regularly and should offer more than enough for any fan of action-packed books.
And just when you think you know how the story will turn out the author throws in another twist to throw you off track.
If you're a fan of the Trailsman series this is a book you shouldn't miss. If you've never read a Trailsman book, then this would be an excellent place to start.
