John Creed, an agent for Faraday Security Service, was given a special assignment. Go to Abilene and figure out how to bring buffalo back to Chicago. Everything depended on the wild-haired plan to prevent the destruction of the cattle market and the town. Now along the way, John was to stop more men from being killed, hunt down a known bloodthirsty death for hire killer, stop family members of a recently hanged man from taking their revenge on him, and oh yeah, fall in love. Now, this was not your typical assignment but Matthew Faraday, the agency’s owner, knew that John Creed was a special agent, and he was the man for the job, plus he had faith that John would stop at nothing to get it done.
The Faraday Security Service was under contract for the Railroad, and the Railroad had invested quite a bit of money in the town of Abilene. They knew that Joe McCoy was in a battle with Hank Miles of Ellsworth for trail herds. Right now, there were no longer any buyers in Abilene because there were no cattle. Miles had waylaid them before they could reach Abilene. McCoy knew that if he didn’t get the buyers back, the town would die a very slow death. He finally came up with a gimmick to attract the buyers, but he needed help in getting it done.
Contacting the Railroad, requesting special cars and materials he wanted to bring Buffalo to Chicago and show them what the west was all about. He hoped that his plan would draw the buyers back to Abilene. Never could he have imagined the deaths that this would bring, but John Creed had a job to do and that was to make McCoy’s plan “REAL”, and possibly saving Faraday’s clients lots of money!
Join John Creed as he works his magic in bringing the West to the East…
What did I like? Talk about exciting and interesting. This book starts on page one and it does not stop till the final page turns. The fascinating part was the way that the past was woven into this storyline rings so true. Just imagine, what would have happened if this war between towns had led to the death of Abilene. It was one of the major cities that had railheads to ship to the east. The cattlemen needed these towns to sell their herds, and the towns needed the cattlemen for them to survive. If those towns did not have cattle buyers from the east, there would be no reason for the cattlemen to drive their herds to that town. This wild-ass gimmick was the last straw for the town, it had to work for them to survive.
I know that many only think about the havoc and destruction that was brought on at the end of a drive. The cowpokes went nuts, drinking, carousing, and shooting their weapons, but all of that was a necessary evil to a town’s survival. Also, not many realized that not every cowboy participated in these events. Many were men of honor that would quietly do their drinking, visit the brothels, and then be on their way back home. But the important thing is that they left part of their money in the economy of that town, thus the towns survived.
What will you like? Exciting, gunplay, killing, death for hire, lots of owlhoots, humor, romance, and one of the wildest gimmicks I have ever heard of! You have to wonder at the desperation of McCoy to think that he could just round up some of the most massive, unmanageable creatures, load them into a railcar, that none had ever encountered before, and then ship them to other cities to perform! Unfreaking believable!!!! It is no wonder that they would run ramped at the first opportunity they got. They couldn’t see very well, and all of the noises were driving them nuts, destruction was an inevitable result. This storyline is so creative, throwing in so many different elements of death, rounding it all out with a blossoming romance. The characters will take you by storm and run you over, the details and descriptions will have you holding your breath, so don’t forget to breathe every once in a while. A fascinating read due to the collaboration of two excellent authors, bringing us another unbelievable tale of the west.
